Traders scaled back their open interest positions in Gold futures markets for the second session in a row on Thursday, this time by more than 3K contracts according to advanced figures from CME Group. Volume, instead, reversed the previous drop and rose by nearly 41.5K contracts.
GOLD POISED FOR EXTRA CONSOLIDATION
Thursday’s negative price action in Gold prices was on the back of shrinking open interest, leaving the prospects of further downside somewhat diminished and allowing for the continuation of the consolidative mood in the very near-term. On the upside, the $1,760 mark per ounce troy keeps limiting occasional bullish attempts for the time being.
