Besides, the economic data published during the day has revealed the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on the world economy.

 

Weak PMIs and depressing unemployment data

Gold consolidates close to 1,730

Gold jumped Thursday to trade at levels not seen since April 14, close to 1,740. Currently, the XAU/USD is consolidating levels close to 1,730, registering a gain of 0.85 %. The graph is becoming more and more positive, and analysts consider the level of 1,750 to be possible.

On the downside, the metal maintains short-term support at 1,700. Then the 1,675 and 1,650 are levels to consider.

Hareesh V, the Head Commodity Researcher at Geojit Financial Services, stated that gold might continue with positive momentum.
