Gold Futures Settle with a Modest Loss

Gold futures posted a modest loss on Tuesday, holding ground above the key $1,800 an ounce mark. Gold "definitely saw some profit taking but it is more wait and see" ahead of the next big catalyst or move, said James Hatzigiannis, chief market strategist at Ploutus Capital Advisors. There are a number of bullish developments for prices, however, including the increases in cases of coronavirus, which is supportive for the haven metal, he said. August gold fell 70 cents, or 0.04%, to settle at...

Gold Futures Post Their First Gain in 3 Sessions

Gold futures climbed on Monday to score their first gain in three sessions, moving back toward the nearly nine-year high they reached on Wednesday.

August gold rose $12.20, or 0.7%, to settle at $1,814.10 an ounce. Prices on Wednesday settled at $1,820.60, the highest for a most-active contract since Sept. 14,...

Dollar Falls as U.S. Earning Season Kicks Off

The index that measures the dollar against a basket of six other major currencies - which often serves as a safe-haven for investors seeking high-quality assets in moments of market volatility - was down 0.31% in North American morning trade. The dollar ended its third week of losses on Friday as...

Dollar Falls on Rising Euro, Higher U.S. Stocks

The dollar fell in North American trade on Tuesday as the euro rose on optimism about the possibility of a European Union stimulus package and as U.S. stocks gained. The U.S. dollar index, which measures the safe-haven greenback against a basket of six rival currencies, was down 0.31% to 96.265.

Australian Unemployment rate 0.1% lower and AUD rallies some 30 pips
Thursday, 17 October 2019 08:00 WIB | ECONOMY |Ekonomi AustraliaUnemploymentECONOMIC

Markets are looking for the Reserve Bank of Australia to cut again, potentially as soon  as next month, so today's  labour force survey for September will be very closely watched (Markets are pricing 10bp of easing at the 5 Nov RBA meeting, and a terminal rate of 0.44% (RBA cash rate currently at 0.75%).

Australia Sept Employment +14.7k (Reuters poll: +15.0k) - A miss.

Australia Sept Unemployment rate +5.2 pct, (Reuters poll: +5.3/prior 5.2%) and bullish.

Australia Sept Full-Time employment +26.2k  vs prior 15.5k, bullish.

Australia Sept Participation rate +66.1 pct, (Reuters poll: +66.2 pct) and bullish.

What was key in this report was the unemployment rate. The fact that the participation rate holds near to a record high 66.2%, the unemployment rate stays near the 5.3% (a 12 month high). However, it was a touch lower in September and AUD/USD has moved higher on the data.

The Unemployment Rate release by the Australian Bureau of Statistics is the number of unemployed workers divided by the total civilian labor force. If the rate hikes, indicates a lack of expansion within the Australian labor market. As a result, a rise leads to weaken the Australian economy. A decrease of the figure is seen as positive (or bullish) for the AUD, while an increase is seen as negative (or bearish).
