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...

Fed Officials Discuss How to Convince Markets That Interest Rates Will Stay Low For a Long Time
Thursday, 21 May 2020 02:33 WIB | FISCAL & MONETARY |The FedEkonomi AS

Federal Reserve officials in April discussed the next phase of interest rate policy ”convincing markets that rates will stay low for a long time ” but gave no sense than any changes were imminent.

Meeting minutes from that session released Wednesday said that œat upcoming meetings the Fed might want to clarify its intentions regarding interest rates.

Some officials wanted the central to make its forward guidance more explicit. For example, the Fed could specify a certain level of unemployment or inflation must be achieved before the Fed would consider raising rates from zero.

Another option was a date-based approach, indicating rates would be raised only after a specified amount of time had elapsed.

Several officials said the Fed might need to provide clarity over the central bank™s ongoing unlimited purchase of Treasurys and mortgage-backed securities.

The Fed has said these purchases are needed to keep financial markets functioning.
