Gold Dips as Silver Rises Slightly on Monday, July 10

Gold for August delivery dipped by $1.50, or 0.08%, to settle at $1,931 an ounce on the Comex division of the New York Mercantile Exchange.

"It’s quieter and uneventful action in the marketplace to start the trading week. That’s allowing the chart-based traders to dictate price action, and the gold and silver technicals remain overall near-term bearish," Jim Wyckoff, a senior analyst at Kitco Inc, said in a daily research note. "However, it’s an active week for U.S. economic reports, including key U.S. inflation data later this week.

Gold futures traded between $1,918 and $1,933.70. They inched 0.2% higher last week, for their first weekly increase in four weeks.
