Gold futures log highest finish since September 2011

Gold futures marked their highest finish in nearly nine years, after climbing to nearly $1,810 an ounce during Tuesday's session. Prices had seen a "routine downside correction following recent gains" in early Tuesday action, that was "once again seen as a value-buying opportunity in the yellow metal, on strong notions more price appreciation lies ahead," said Jim Wyckoff, senior analyst at Kitco.com, in a market update. August gold rose $16.40, or 0.9%, to settle at $1,809.90 an ounce. That...

Gold futures up a fourth straight session to mark another finish at the highest since 2011

Gold futures climbed for a fourth straight session on Wednesday to mark another finish at their highest since September 2011. The move for gold above $1,800 is not surprising given "so many positive price drivers in its favor, with the key player being negative real rates," said Peter Spina, president and chief executive officer at GoldSeek.com. He does not expect to see a meaningful pullback in gold until it breaks past $2,000. On Wednesday, August gold rose $10.70, or 0.6%, to settle at...

Gold Prices Extend Climb to 9-Year High as Traders See Few Limits to Central-Bank Stimulus

Gold futures climbed on Wednesday, building on their highest settlement since September 2011 a day earlier and supported by the prospect of a lengthy period of government and central bank stimulus to support economies harmed by the COVID-19 pandemic. On Tuesday, the Federal Reserve's No. 2, Richard Clarida, did little to disabuse investors of the view that the Fed would do whatever it takes to limit the damage from the viral outbreak.

Fed Chair Powell Says Strong Job Market Can Reduce U.S. Racial Inequality
Tuesday, 16 June 2020 23:19 WIB | FISCAL & MONETARY |The Fed

The best way the Federal Reserve can help reduce racial inequality is to return the U.S. labor market to its pre-coronavirus strength, U.S. Fed Chair Jerome Powell said on Tuesday, as he sidestepped questions over whether the Fed itself contributes to the problem.

Anger over racism and inequality has swept the country since the police killing of George Floyd May 25 in Minneapolis, with people protesting en masse despite the ongoing threat of infection during the coronavirus pandemic.

The unrest has sharpened the public focus on economic plight of black and Latino families, who on average continue to earn less, have higher unemployment, and are harder hit when economic shocks like the coronavirus hit. In May, while white unemployment fell, black unemployment rose.

The œbest single thing that the Fed can do to address inequality, Powell told the Senate Banking Committee, is to œtry to get the labor market back to where it was in February, when unemployment was 3.5%.

But when Senator Sherrod Brown asked Powell for an open-ended study of how the Fed™s policies contribute to systemic racism, Powell said he would get back to him after conferring with his colleagues.

On Friday the Fed's lone black policymaker, Atlanta Fed President Raphael Bostic, said here institutionalized racism constrains economic growth.
