Shining Bright in an Unstable Gold Market

NEW YORK, NY, Sept 16, 2016 - (ACN Newswire) - Gold prices went through a week of uncertainty due to mixed economic data. First there were weak retail sales data, which led gold prices to surge, yet investors remained uncertain how the data will affect the upcoming decision of the Federal Reserve on September 20-21. There is a possibility that strong jobs and the increase in household income data will overshadow disappointing retail sales, giving the Fed enough encouragement to raise interest rates. The U.S Dollar has slightly increased in value, and as a result, gold prices dropped Thursday, yet remained strongly positioned in their expected range. Brazil Resources Inc. (TSX-V: BRI), Market Vectors Junior Gold Miners ETF (NYSEARCA: GDXJ), Market Vectors Gold Miners ETF (NYSEARCA: GDX), Barrick Gold Corporation (NYSE: ABX), Eldorado Gold Corp (NYSE: EGO)

The technical chart shows gold prices fluctuating from the $1,310 per ounce and high $1,360 per ounce over a period of three months. Gold prices touched $1,319 per ounce on Thursday and continued to look unstable.

Despite the slight decline, some companies remain strong performers in the gold sector despite the current pressure of the FOMC meeting next week. Both Market Vectors Junior Gold Miners ETF (NYSEARCA: GDXJ) and the Market Vectors Gold Miners ETF (NYSEARCA: GDX) have remained stable, and slightly gained Thursday, ignoring the drop in gold prices, proving that demand for safe heaven assets remains strong.
