Gold settles with a gain for the session and shorter week

Gold futures climbed on Thursday, also posting a gain for the holiday-shortened week, as concerns over the increase in COVID-19 cases in part of the world provided safe-haven support for the metal. Some of that support lacked in the U.S., where data showed better-than-expected jobs growth in June. "The employment numbers are spectacular but an 11% unemployment rate is still elevated," said Jeff Wright, executive vice president of GoldMining Inc. "COVID cases are back on rise and numerous...

Gold futures end lower a day after highest finish since 2011

Gold futures pulled back Wednesday, after settling a day earlier at their highest since 2011. "Gold remains in an uptrend but some fatigue may be kicking in," said Lukman Otunuga, senior research analyst at FXTM. Data from Automatic Data Processing Inc. Wednesday showed that U.S. private-sector employers added 2.37 million jobs in June, less than analysts expected. Still, "some optimism may return over the U.S. economy recovering quicker than expected," something that may hit haven gold, he...

Fed's Powell says risks to the U.S. economy remain, particularly from the coronavirus
Tuesday, 11 February 2020 21:04 WIB | FISCAL & MONETARY |TestimoniFederal Reserve

Some of the forces that held down U.S. economic growth last year have eased, but risks to the outlook remain, particularly from the coronavirus, Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell said Tuesday.

œWe are closely monitoring the emergence of the coronavirus, which could lead to disruptions in China that spill over to the rest of the global economy, Powell said, in testimony prepared for a House Financial Services Committee hearing later Tuesday.

The Fed™s report to Congress on monetary policy noted fragility in China™s corporate and financial sector that could leave it vulnerable to an adverse shock.

Earlier Tuesday, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, the director general of the World Health Organization, said coronavirus is œa grave threat for the rest of the world amid some signs the rate of infection may be slowing.

Although the semi-annual hearing on Fed monetary policy doesn't start until 10 a.m., the House panel decided to release the Fed chairman™s testimony a few hours early.

Worried about the health of the economy, the U.S. central bank cut interest rates by a quarter point at three successive meetings last fall, bringing its benchmark rate down to a range of 1.5%-1.75%.

These fears have eased somewhat. Over the past two policy meetings in December and January, Fed officials have left the key policy rate unchanged.

Powell said the Fed was able to hold policy steady over the past 12 weeks because some uncertainties surrounding trade had diminished recently and there were some signs that global growth œmay be stabilizing.

Fed officials believe the current accommodative stance of policy is appropriate to support growth and push inflation up to the central bank™s 2% target, Powell said.

If incoming data back up this belief, the current stance of monetary policy will remain appropriate, Powell said.
