Shining Bright in an Unstable Gold Market

NEW YORK, Sept. 16, 2016 /CNW/ - Gold prices went through a week of uncertainty due to mixed economic data. First there were weak retail sales data, which led to 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 the 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. (BRI.V), 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)
