Gold prices end lower on growing tensions between the U.S and China over Hong Kong

Gold futures ended lower Wednesday, but of session lows as tensions between the U.S. and China worsened after Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced that Hong Kong is no longer autonomous from China. The announcement could lead the Trump Administration to revoke special treatment for the Hong Kong economy, which is exempt from tariffs levied on Chinese imports. Jeff Wright, executive vice president of GoldMining Inc., had expected to see a "snap back" in prices with U.S.-China tensions...

Gold prices settle slightly higher Thursday

Gold prices notched a slight gain Thursday as investors focused on intensifying friction between the U.S. and China. Continued concerns about negative interest rates and a jump in flows in exchange-traded funds focused on gold also helped to push bullion higher. August gold ended $1.50, or 0.1%, higher at $1,728.30 an ounce. However, that finish was well off the intraday peak for bullion at $1,743.70 an ounce. Source: Marketwatch

Gold Prices Head Higher as China-U.S. Tensions Spur Haven Buying

Gold futures rose on Thursday as China-U.S. tensions remained in focus, driving haven buying on Wall Street. Elevated animosities between Beijing and Washington over China's human rights policies, including its relationship with Hong Kong and the treatment of a Muslim minority, have underpinned buying in haven assets. China on Thursday hardened its stance, forging ahead with a resolution to impose national-security laws on Hong Kong in a bid to suppress protests there. That action comes...

Gold Slides Below $1,700 an Ounce as Stock-Market Rally Dulls Haven Appeal

Gold lost ground Wednesday, sliding below the psychologically important $1,700-an-ounce level as an ongoing stock-market rally in response to easing COVID-19 lockdowns robbed the yellow metal of its haven appeal. Gold for June delivery on Comex dropped $12.60, or 0.7%, to $1,693 an ounce, while July silver was off 13 cents, or 0.7% at $17.465 an ounce. A dip below $1,700 could turn into a further correction, said Carsten Fritsch, analyst at Commerzbank, in a note. U.S. equities rose sharply...

Dozens Killed in Iraq as Protests Escalate
Friday, 29 November 2019 17:44 WIB | GLOBAL |Global

Iraqi security forces used live ammunition against mostly unarmed demonstrators Thursday, killing at least 40 people in one of the bloodiest days since anti-government protests began last month, security and medical officials said.

At least 25 people were killed and more than 200 wounded when security forces opened fire on protesters who had blocked key roads and bridges in the southern city of Nasiriyah.

Baghdad said it had sent military troops to restore order across southern Iraq, where protests have grown increasingly violent. Demonstrators have occupied buildings and bridges and have clashed with security forces, who have used tear gas and live ammunition almost daily since protests began.

"The scenes from Nasiriyah this morning more closely resemble a war zone than city streets and bridges. This brutal onslaught is just the latest in a long series of deadly events where Iraqi security forces meted out appalling violence against largely peaceful protesters,'' said Lynn Maalouf, the group's Middle East research director.

Al Jazeera reported that Prime Minister Adel Abdul-Mahdi fired Lieutenant-General Jamil al-Shammari less than a day after he was put in charge of bringing order to Dhi Qar, of which Nasiriyah is the capital. Local media also reported late Thursday that the governor of Dhi Qar had resigned.

In Baghdad, security forces shot and killed four people and wounded at least another 22 as protesters tried to cross the Ahrar Bridge, which leads to the Green Zone, the heavily fortified seat of Iraq's government.

The clashes came a day after protesters burned down an Iranian consulate in the holy city of Najaf. The staff at the consulate were unharmed because they had evacuated just before the attack, the state-run Islamic Republic News Agency reported Thursday. Iran Foreign Ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi called for a "responsible, strong and effective'' response to the attack.

This was the second time protesters had attacked an Iranian diplomatic mission. Earlier this month, protesters threw Molotov cocktails over the consulate walls in Karbala, but the fire did not catch.

The demonstrators are demanding an end to government corruption and what they perceive as increasing Iranian influence in Iraqi affairs.

More than 350 people have been killed and thousands more wounded since October.
