The yellow metal is extending losses for 2 consecutive weeks. After a big fall at Tuesday's session, it was mild gains at the end of yesterday's session. Stronger USD puts pressure on the metal. Today, data on US unemployment claims and pending home sales are due. We expect positive readings from the US. Greece is another major factor. In June, Greece must repay 1.6 billion euros to IMF. Greece is unlikely to be able to repay without a deal.
