Gold futures finish at their highest in more than 2 weeks

Gold futures settled at a more than two-week high on Thursday, as worries surrounding the spread of the coronavirus led to weakness in the U.S. stock market and a fall in bond yields, lifting the haven appeal of the precious metal. "Appetite towards the precious metal should remain supported by growing fears over the coronavirus outbreak in China," said Lukman Otunuga, senior research analyst at FXTM. "The general uncertainty is likely to accelerate the flight to safety with gold seen testing...

ECB's Draghi Warns That Uncertainty is Weighing on Sentiment
Monday, 28 January 2019 22:10 WIB | FISCAL |

The euro zone economy has performed worse than expected in recent months and global uncertainty is weighing on economic sentiment, European Central Bank President Mario Draghi said on Monday, repeating the bank's recent warnings about growth.

The ECB left policy on hold last week but warned that the bloc's growth dip may be bigger and longer than earlier feared, pointing to even more protracted policy normalization and suggesting that the bank™s next step could be to provide more support, not less.

œOver the past few months, incoming information has continued to be weaker than expected on account of softer external demand and some country and sector-specific factors, Draghi told the European Parliament™s committee on economic affairs in Brussels.

œThe persistence of uncertainties in particular relating to geopolitical factors and the threat of protectionism is weighing on economic sentiment, Draghi added.

The ECB has long guided for steady interest rates ˜through™ the summer but markets have already scaled back their expectations, pricing in a move only in mid-2020, well after Draghi leaves office in October.

The problem is that the euro zone™s three biggest economies ” Germany, France and Italy ” are barely growing. Even if this is down mostly to one off factors, the resulting drop in business confidence threatens to make the downturn self fulfilling.

œSignificant monetary policy stimulus remains essential to support the further build-up of domestic price pressures and headline inflation developments over the medium term, Draghi added. œThe Governing Council stands ready to adjust all of its instruments, as appropriate

To prop up confidence, it could offer banks another round of cheap, long-term loans to make sure they continue to lend to the real economy.

The next move could be to formally push out the date of its first rate hike, a more tricky move as it could tie the hand of the new president, who is likely to named only after European elections in late May.
