Gold posts lowest finish in nearly 2 weeks as bond yields climb

Gold futures declined on Thursday, pressured by strength in bond yields as the Fed™s symposium of central bankers got underway in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. U.S. Treasury bonds weakened Thursday, sending the benchmark 10-year Treasury note yield up 2.4 basis points to 1.6046%. Rising bond yields can dull the luster of gold, which offers no yield. December gold fell $7.20, or 0.5%, to settle at $1,508.50 an ounce after trading as low as $1,502.10. Prices finished at the lowest for a most-active...

Gold edges lower, focus on Jackson Hole summit for rate-cut direction

Gold prices fell marginally on Thursday, lingering around the key $1,500 level, as investors awaited the Federal Reserve chair's speech at a global central bankers' conclave for clues on future U.S. interest rate cuts. Spot gold inched down 0.2% at $1,499.60 per ounce as of 07:47 GMT. U.S. gold futures were down 0.5% at $1,507.60 an ounce. If Powell says they are going to cut rates aggressively, that may not be great for gold in the short-term since equities will gain, Halley...

Three Fed policy makers voiced their resistance to the notion that the U.S. economy needs lower interest rates, and a fourth said he wanted to avoid taking further action œunless we have to, foreshadowing a sharp debate with officials...

Trump Says He Wants Russia Back at G-7 Summits

U.S. President Donald Trump said Wednesday he wants Russia back at the Group of Seven summits of the world's leading economies, even though it still controls Ukraine's Crimean Peninsula. Moscow was booted from the group over its unilateral 2014 annexation of the peninsula. As the G-7 leaders head to the French Atlantic seaside town of Biarritz for their annual meeting this weekend, Trump said it would make sense for Russian President Vladimir Putin to be part of the group again.

Pakistan, Afghanistan Vow to Improve Strained Ties
Friday, 28 June 2019 18:17 WIB | GLOBAL |Global

Afghan President Ashraf Ghani has begun a two-day official visit to Pakistan to pursue what aides say would be the normalization of the relationship between the two uneasy neighboring countries.

The Afghan leader held delegation-level talks with Prime Minister Imran Khan shortly after arriving in Islamabad as the head of a large delegation comprising cabinet ministers, advisors and Afghan business community leaders.

Khan™s office said in a post-meeting statement the two leaders "agreed to open a new chapter of friendship and cooperation ...based on mutual trust and harmony for the benefit of the two peoples and countries and for advancing the cause of peace, stability and prosperity in the region.

The discussions between the two delegations focused on strengthening mutual cooperation in a number of areas, including political, trade, economy, security, as well as peace and reconciliation efforts in Afghanistan, the statement noted.

Ghani, who is undertaking his third visit to Islamabad after taking office in 2014, is also scheduled to address a conference of Pakistani and Afghan businessmen.

Allegations that the Pakistani military supports and shelters Taliban leaders are at the center of long-running bilateral tensions and mistrust. Pakistan rejects the charges and in turn accuses the Afghan spy agency of providing refuge to militants waging terrorist attacks against the Pakistani state.

The two countries share a nearly 2,600 kilometer, largely porous border, which critics say encourages illegal movement in both directions. Pakistan is unilaterally installing a robust fence along most of the frontier and believes it would address mutual security concerns.
