Gold ends flat, then moves lower in electronic trade after Fed minutes

Gold prices finished unchanged on Wednesday, after spending much of the session losing ground on the back of strength in benchmark U.S. stock indexes. After future prices settled, minutes from the Federal Open Market Committee's July meeting showed that Federal Reserve officials shied away from saying how many more easing steps they might be willing to support this year. In electronic trading, gold for December delivery was at $1,514.30 an ounce shortly after the meeting minutes. The...

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...

Japan Says S. Korea Failed to Explain Reason for New Trade Restrictions
Tuesday, 13 August 2019 17:44 WIB | GLOBAL |Global

Japan says it does not understand why it has been removed from South Korea's list of trusted trade partners, the latest move in an escalating trade dispute between the Asian neighbors.

Seoul announced Monday that it had moved Tokyo to a new category that brings more restrictions on exports of sensitive goods. Trade Minister Sung Yun-mo said the new category was for countries that have managed their export controls in a way that violates international norms.

Japanese Trade Minister Hiroshige Seko said on Twitter Tuesday that South Korea has not adequately explained how Japan does not conform to the global export standards. 

The move is the latest in a back-and-forth trade dispute between the two countries which has included Japan dropping South Korea from its own list of preferred trading partners.

Tokyo insists its trade decisions were motivated by national security concerns, while the moves are widely seen as retaliation for recent South Korean court rulings ordering Japanese companies to compensate Koreans who were forced to work during Japan's colonial occupation of Korea.

A trade war between Japan and South Korea, the world's third and 11th largest economies, respectively, would have wide-ranging ramifications.

It could threaten global technology supply chains, since South Korea produces 70 percent of the world's memory chips.

The change is due to go into effect in September. Once it does, South Korean companies wanting to send sensitive goods to Japan will have to go through an approvals process that takes up to 15 days, up from about five days under the current system.

Japan's new policy begins August 28 at which time Japanese companies will need to seek case-by-case approval from the country's trade ministry before shipping certain products to South Korea.
