Gold futures rose 0.5% on Thursday, Sept. 10

Precious metals registered across-the-board gains for a second day in a row Thursday. Platinum was the biggest winner, surging 1.7%. Each of the other metals logged increases of less 1%. Gains in gold and silver were actually their third straight.

Gold for December delivery tacked on $9.40, or 0.5%, to settle at $1,964.30 an ounce on the Comex division of the New York Mercantile Exchange.

"Technically, October gold futures bulls have the firm overall near-term technical advantage amid recent choppy trading. Prices are still in a five-month-old uptrend on the daily bar chart. Bulls’ next upside price objective is to produce a close in October futures above solid resistance at the September high of $1,992.50. Bears’ next near-term downside price objective is pushing futures prices below solid technical support at $1,900.00," Jim Wyckoff, a senior analyst at Kitco Metals Inc., said in a daily research note.

Gold futures ranged from a low of $1,948.60 to a high of $1,975.20. They added 0.6% on Wednesday, and they rose 0.5% in starting the holiday-shortened week on Tuesday.
