The gold futures contract gained 0.55% on Friday, as it continued to trade along Wednesday's new yearly high of $1,796.10. The market has extended its long-term uptrend last week. The recent economic data releases didn't bring any new surprises for the financial markets, however, gold broke above its local highs, as we can see on the daily chart:

Gold is trading 0.3% lower this morning, as it is further extending the short-term consolidation. What about the other precious metals? Silver gained 0.78% on Friday and today it is 0.1% lower.
