Gold Futures End With a Loss on Stronger Dollar

February gold fell $3.20, or 0.3%, to settle at $1,249.40 an ounce. Prices had finished Friday at their highest since July. Source : Marketwatch

Gold Prices Decline With Dollar Up a Second Straight Session

Gold prices gave up an earlier climb to finish a bit lower on Tuesday, weighed down by a second straight session of gains for the U.S. dollar. Expectations for a slowdown in the pace of future rate increases by the U.S. Federal Reserve, however, helped cap losses for the metal. Gold for February delivery on Comex fell by $2.20, or 0.2%, to settle at $1,247.20 an ounce, down from an earlier high above $1,255. March silver rose 2.3 cents, or 0.2%, to $14.628 an ounce, recouping some of its...

Wall St., Main St. Expect Gold To Keep Shining

The Labor Department reported that 155,000 new nonfarm jobs were created last month, when expectations had been for around 190,000 to 200,000. Still, the jobless rate remained at a 49-year low of 3.7%. Fourteen market...

Australia Keeps Key Rate Unchanged Amid Housing Market Slowdown
Tuesday, 4 December 2018 10:59 WIB | FISCAL & MONETARY |RBA

The Reserve Bank of Australia left its key rate unchanged at a record low Tuesday as it gauges the impact of a housing market slowdown on the nation's economy.

Governor Philip Lowe and his board left the cash at 1.5 percent, as expected and as they have since August 2016. œGrowth in household income remains low, debt levels are high and some asset prices have declined, he said in a statement.

Lowe noted that credit conditions are tighter for borrowers than they have been œfor some time, reflecting a clampdown by regulators and nervousness among lenders in the midst of an inquiry into the behavior of banks.

Australian house prices recorded their biggest monthly drop since the global financial crisis in November, reflecting the lending curbs and buyers waiting to see how far the market falls. For the RBA, the risk is whether this prompts households to cut consumption -- a key driver of the economy -- and boost savings.

On the impact of the U.S.-China trade tensions on the international outlook, Lowe said: œThe global economic expansion is continuing and unemployment rates in most advanced economies are low. There are, however, some signs of a slowdown in global trade, partly stemming from ongoing trade tensions.

The RBA chief kept his commentary on the currency pretty much unchanged. The Aussie has recovered some ground in the past three weeks, but is still down 9.2 percent from its late January peak.

A weakening housing market adds a new variable to the RBA™s policy framework as it threatens household confidence and spending. It has been using low rates to accelerate economic growth and tighten the labor market to such an extent that employers will need to offer higher wages to secure workers; that in turn will boost household incomes and inflation and should lay the ground for the first rate increase since 2010.
