Gold Futures Post Their First Gain in 3 Sessions

Gold futures climbed on Monday to score their first gain in three sessions, moving back toward the nearly nine-year high they reached on Wednesday. Investors eyed the rising number of cases in the U.S., which lifted expectations for further central bank stimulus measures to offset the effects of the pandemic's hit to the economy. August gold rose $12.20, or 0.7%, to settle at $1,814.10 an ounce. Prices on Wednesday settled at $1,820.60, the highest for a most-active contract since Sept. 14,...

Gold Futures Settle with a Modest Loss

Gold futures posted a modest loss on Tuesday, holding ground above the key $1,800 an ounce mark. Gold "definitely saw some profit taking but it is more wait and see" ahead of the next big catalyst or move, said James Hatzigiannis, chief market strategist at Ploutus Capital Advisors. There are a number of bullish developments for prices, however, including the increases in cases of coronavirus, which is supportive for the haven metal, he said. August gold fell 70 cents, or 0.04%, to settle at...

Lagarde's ECB Nomination Thrusts IMF into Early Succession Race
Wednesday, 3 July 2019 11:02 WIB | GLOBAL |Global

The nomination of Christine Lagarde as European Central Bank president on Tuesday has thrust the International Monetary Fund into an early, unanticipated search for a new leader amid a raging trade war that has darkened the outlook for global growth.

Lagarde in a brief announcement said she was "honored" by the nomination and would temporarily relinquish her duties as IMF managing director during the nomination period.

Her appointment is subject to approval by a fractious European Parliament. If approved, she would take over as ECB president from Mario Draghi on Oct. 31.

But in Washington, speculation about possible candidates was already centering on Europeans that had been viewed as contenders for the ECB job, including Bank of Finland Governor Olli Rehn, French central bank chief Francois Villeroy de Galhau, Germany's Bundesbank President Jens Weidmann, and ECB executive board member Benoit Coeure.

Some analysts also suggested that Draghi, who will turn 72 before he leaves the ECB, could be a potential IMF candidate in a sort of job-swap with Lagarde, who is 63.

Lagarde's departure would deprive the IMF of a tireless advocate for the benefits of trade, global growth that aids the poor and middle classes, and the empowerment of women.

She has spent much of this year warning about slowing global growth caused by the U.S.-China tariff war, which the IMF estimates would cut global economic output by 0.5 percent.
