Gold Gives Up Early Gains, Tracking Volatile Euro-Dollar Amid German Political Uncertainty

Gold eased Monday, giving up early gains seen amid German political uncertainty. Relative stability for the euro as Monday™s trading session progressed helped the shared currency against the dollar, dulling some of the early demand shown for the haven metal. Gold may consolidate short term after prices rallied Friday to a more than one-month high. The metal tacked on nearly 1.8% for last week, as the latest developments in the investigation into Russia™s interference in the U.S....

GBP/USD - Recovery Continues, Focus on German Politics and Brexit

GBP/USD has recovered more than 50% of its intraday losses but is struggling build momentum above 1.32 levels. The collapse of the German coalition talks and the resulting action in Asia (weak EUR, GBP) clearly indicates that investors fear "all major decisions, including Brexit negotiations" could be put on hold till the situation in Germany is sorted out. Thus, GBP could remain under pressure in Europe. The data calendar is light, but BoE Deputy Governor David Ramsden, who voted against...

Japanese Stocks Drop After Yen Advances Amid U.S. Tax Wrangle

Japanese stocks fell after the yen posted the biggest weekly gain against the dollar in more than two months as the U.S. Congress wrangled over tax reform plans. The Topix index declined after the benchmark completed its worst week in seven months, following a slide in U.S. equities on Friday. Banks dropped after U.S. 10-year Treasury yields fell, while electronics makers contributed the most to the Topix™s retreat. The yen strengthened against the euro as German Chancellor Angela...

Euro Shrugs Off German Impasse as Stocks Struggle

Lawyers of Jailed South Korean President Resign
Tuesday, 17 October 2017 03:38 WIB | GLOBAL |Global

The seven defense lawyers of ousted South Korean President Park Geun-hye resigned en masse Monday to protest what they say is a biased corruption trial.

Speaking for the first time since the start of her trial, Park, who was removed from office and arrested in March, called the proceedings against her an act of "political revenge."

Park was impeached in December by parliament and in March fired by the country's top court, following revelations of her involvement in a massive corruption scandal centered on a friend of 40 years and some of the country's top businessmen, including Samsung heir Lee Jae-yong.

She faces charges of bribery, extortion, abuse of power and other high-profile corruption charges that could potentially send her to jail for life.

The lawyers' resignations were submitted because they took issue with the extension of her detention. Last week it was extended until April 2018.

The court said Park could destroy evidence if she were released.

One of the lawyers told South Korean news agency Yonhap, "Witnessing the grand principles of presumption of innocence and trial without detention helplessly collapsing, the lawyers feel no need to get involved in future court proceedings." He said, "As we've reached a conclusion that any defense argument for the defendant is meaningless, all of us decided to resign."

Park told the court "I've come to the conclusion that it's meaningless to believe that the court will handle the case only in accordance with the constitution and conscience."

The former president has maintained that she is innocent.

Park is the first elected leader to be removed from office in South Korea since democratic rule was established in 1987.
