Gold rose modestly in Thursday trading, recovering some of the ground lost in the wake of Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke’s testimony before Congress yesterday.
While investors continued to seek signals of when the Fed would start drawing down its monthly bond-buying, the metal benefited from traders looking to take advantage of Wednesday’s price decline.
Gold futures for August delivery gained 0.5% to $1,284.20 per ounce Thursday, according to CME Group. Gold traded as high as $1,287.90 and as low as $1,273.30. Gold bullion closed in London at $1,285, according to BullionVault.
Silver futures for August delivery dipped 0.2% to $19.38 per ounce. Thursday’s high for silver was $19.55, while the low was $19.28.
Gold and silver funds moved higher in Thursday trading.
Gold and silver mining ETFs dipped during the day.
Gold mining shares were mixed on Thursday.
