Gold prices down a third straight session to lowest finish in a year

Gold futures fell a third session in a row on Tuesday to mark another finish at their lowest level in a year. Strength in the U.S. dollar following testimony from U.S. Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell that backed continued hikes in interest rates kept pressure on gold. August gold fell $12.40, or 1%, to settle at $1,227.30 an ounce, the lowest for a most-active contract since July 13, 2017, according to FactSet data. Source : Marketwatch

Gold settles with a slight gain, avoids correction territory

Gold prices settled slightly higher on Wednesday, ending a three-session streak of declines as a benchmark dollar index eased back toward session lows, allowing the yellow metal to avoid a finish in correction territory. August gold tacked on 60 cents, or less than 0.1%, to settle at $1,227.90 an ounce, giving up earlier declines that saw prices touch a low of $1,220.90. The precious commodity has thus far tumbled 9.9% since its peak on Jan. 15 at $1,362.90 an ounce, placing it near...

Gold aims to snap 2-session skid as dollar gauge sees muted action

Powell says more gradual interest-rate hikes is the 'best way forward''

Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell on Tuesday said continued gradual interest-rate hikes was the "best way forward" for monetary policy. "With a strong job market, inflation close to our objective, and the risks to the outlook roughly balanced, the FOMC believes that - for now - the best way forward is to keep gradually raising the federal funds rate," Powell said in testimony to the Senate Banking Committee. Powell said the unemployment rate is expected to fall further and the Fed's...

U.K. Services Growth Picks Up Though Warning Signs Cloud Outlook
Wednesday, 4 October 2017 15:45 WIB | EUROPE |InggrisU.K.ServicesEkonomi inggris

U.K. services activity unexpectedly accelerated in September and price pressures increased, according to a report by IHS Markit.

But the survey also showed that growth in new business fell to the weakest in more than a year and a measure of executives' confidence declined. Some firms said that clients were holding off on major investment decisions because of Brexit uncertainty.

The report paints a mixed picture for the Bank of England, where policy makers have turned hawkish and indicated they may be close to raising interest rates. While the pace of economic growth remains modest, a buildup of inflationary pressures is raising concern at the central bank.

The economy is œstruggling with the unwelcome combination of sluggish growth and rising prices, presenting a dilemma for policy makers, said Chris Williamson, chief business economist at Markit.

A services Purchasing Managers Index by Markit increased to 53.6 last month from 53.2 in August. Economists had forecast a reading of 53.2. Input costs advanced at the fastest pace in seven months.

The report, combined with weaker manufacturing and construction surveys earlier this week, suggest the economy grew 0.3 percent in the third quarter, according to Markit. That would match the pace of the previous three months.

In addition, the all-sector PMI fell to a seven-month low in September, and Markit said it's now at a level that would normally be associated with a loosening of monetary policy rather than a tightening.

œThe rise in price pressures will pour further fuel on expectations that the Bank of England will soon follow-up on its increasingly hawkish rhetoric, Williamson said. œHowever, the decision is likely to be a difficult one.
