Gold futures finish lower for a second straight session

Gold futures fell on Wednesday for a second straight session, pressured on the heels of some strength in the U.S. dollar, even as concerns over the economic hit from COVID-19 remain. "It would appear that gold needs a clear sign of a pandemic and clear signs of severe global slowing to ignite a return of aggressive investment buying," said analysts at Zaner Metals, in a daily note. "The trade could be fearful about the potential for a sustained setback in Chinese physical gold...

Gold futures give up earlier gains to log a third straight session decline

Gold futures gave up earlier gains on Thursday to finish lower for a third straight session. "Gold prices are always sensitive to the outlook for interest rates, but it's rarely been more strongly correlated against bond yields than it is right now," said Adrian Ash, director of research at BullionVault. "So while the plunge in the stock market should keep driving gold higher, any pullback in these surging bond prices is also going to hit gold short-term," he said. Bond prices move in the...

Oil futures settle at lowest in over a year

Oil futures declined on Wednesday, with the U.S crude benchmark settling at its lowest in more than a year as global energy demand worries fed by the spread of COVID-19 pulled prices down for a fourth consecutive session. April West Texas Intermediate oil fell $1.17, or 2.3%, to settle at $48.73 barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange.

Australia Holds Key Rate, Wagers Housing Revival to Lift Spirits
Tuesday, 5 November 2019 10:50 WIB | FISCAL & MONETARY |Ekonomi AustraliaRBA

Australia kept interest rates unchanged Tuesday, betting that a rebound in property prices will increase household wealth and confidence and see consumers more willing to part with their cash.

Reserve Bank chief Philip Lowe and his board left the cash rate at 0.75% in Sydney as they monitor the ongoing impact of three reductions since June. The decision was predicted by money markets and economists and comes as policy makers struggle to accelerate economic growth and rekindle inflation.

œGiven global developments and the evidence of the spare capacity in the Australian economy, it is reasonable to expect that an extended period of low interest rates will be required in Australia, Governor Lowe said in a statement announcing the decision. The board œis prepared to ease monetary policy further if needed to support sustainable growth in the economy.

Australia gained much-needed breathing space in its easing cycle when the Federal Reserve signaled last week it was pausing rate cuts. That is likely to cool upward pressure on an Aussie dollar that Lowe has struggled to contain in order to keep his nation™s exporters competitive and hiring.

While the RBA™s three-quarters of a percentage point of rate cuts -- the same as the Fed -- and Australian government tax rebates have failed to lift flagging consumer spirits, monetary policy easing has been a boon for housing.

Prices in Melbourne surged 2.3% in October, the biggest monthly gain in almost 10 years, and have jumped 6% since bottoming in May. Sydney isn™t far behind, advancing 1.7% last month and rebounding 5.3% since May.

Yet that wealth effect hasn™t translated into improved sentiment: consumer confidence has fallen in four of the five months since the RBA resumed easing; retail sales, meanwhile, are miserable and rose just 0.2% in September from a year earlier and actually fell 0.1% in volume terms in the third quarter.
