Oil Tumbles on Virus Fear While Saudis See 'Very Limited' Impact

Oil tumbled as the market opened in Asia on fears China's deadly coronavirus will crimp energy demand, prompting Saudi Arabia to say it was closely monitoring the situation. Futures in London and New York plunged more than 3% in early trading as the death toll from the outbreak in China rose and as officials extended the Lunar New Year holiday to help stem the spread of the outbreak. While Goldman Sachs Group Inc. predicted last week that global oil demand may take a hit, Saudi...

Gold eyes $1,600 as Fed meeting, new virus threat in focus this week

Gold is well supported and has room to run higher this week as analysts point to the Federal Reserve meeting and the spread of the new corona virus as the two key issues to keep an eye on. The yellow metal battled against risk-on sentiment last week but managed to hold above $1,550 an ounce level and even rise about 0.8% on the week. February Comex gold futures were last trading at $1,572.40, up 0.45% on the day. This week, analysts are keeping a close eye on the Federal Reserve interest...

Yen jumps, yuan slumps on worries China struggling to contain virus

The yen rose and the yuan fell in offshore trade on Monday as worries that China is struggling to contain the spread of a pneumonia-like virus sparked a bout of risk aversion.

U.S. Dollar Flat as Weekly Jobless Claims Rise to Five-Month High
Thursday, 14 November 2019 23:18 WIB | CURRENCIES |Aussie EuroCurrencyDOLLAR

The U.S. dollar was unmoved on Thursday as the number of Americans applying for unemployment benefits rose to an unexpected five-month high and there were no new comments on monetary policy from Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell.

Initial claims for state unemployment benefits increased 14,000 to a seasonally adjusted 225,000 for the week ended Nov. 9, the highest reading since June 22, the Labor Department said on Thursday.

The U.S. dollar index, which measures the greenback™s strength against a basket of six major currencies, was flat at 98.210 as of 10:50 AM ET (15:50 GMT). The biggest move within the basket was against the Aussie dollar, which fell 1% to its lowest in nearly a month after an abrupt weakening of the Australian labor market. That comes against the background of devastating bush fires that have also dented sentiment toward the Aussie in recent days, casting doubt over the country's long-term dependence on exports of natural resources such as coal that are widely linked to climate change.

The safe haven Japanese yen was higher with USD/JPY down 0.2% to 108.61.

Elsewhere, the euro was lower, with EUR/USD down 0.1% to 1.0996 as Germany barely escaped a recession in the third-quarter. Still, Brexit uncertainty and fallout from the U.S.-China trade war continue to cast a shadow on the bloc. Sterling was flat with GBP/USD at 1.2849.
