Gold futures up a fourth straight session to mark another finish at the highest since 2011

Gold futures climbed for a fourth straight session on Wednesday to mark another finish at their highest since September 2011. The move for gold above $1,800 is not surprising given "so many positive price drivers in its favor, with the key player being negative real rates," said Peter Spina, president and chief executive officer at GoldSeek.com. He does not expect to see a meaningful pullback in gold until it breaks past $2,000. On Wednesday, August gold rose $10.70, or 0.6%, to settle at...

Gold Holds Near 2011 High on Virus Concerns, Dollar

Gold held near the highest level in almost nine years as concerns over the coronavirus pandemic drives demand for haven assets, while the dollar slipped. The number of confirmed infections in the U.S. surpassed 3 million, representing a quarter of global cases. California and Texas, the two most populous states, reported some of their largest daily rises in cases and deaths. Spot gold little changed at $1,809.01/oz at 8:09am in Singapore. On Wednesday, prices touched...

Gold Prices Extend Climb to 9-Year High as Traders See Few Limits to Central-Bank Stimulus

Gold futures climbed on Wednesday, building on their highest settlement since September 2011 a day earlier and supported by the prospect of a lengthy period of government and central bank stimulus to support economies harmed by the COVID-19 pandemic. On Tuesday, the Federal Reserve's No. 2, Richard Clarida, did little to disabuse investors of the view that the Fed would do whatever it takes to limit the damage from the viral outbreak. Precious metals have benefited from loose monetary policy...

Oil rises on improving U.S. gasoline demand

Oil prices edged up on Wednesday on signs of a recovery in gasoline consumption in the United States, but rising U.S. crude inventories and an increase in coronavirus infections limited gains. Brent crude futures rose 25 cents to $43.37 a barrel. West Texas Intermediate crude futures settled 28 cents, or 0.69%, higher at $40.90 per barrel. Both benchmarks were on track for a fourth session of daily percentage changes of less 1% in either direction, shrugging off news that OPEC member Libya...

Dollar slides as US stocks rally, but sentiment cautious

The dollar fell on Wednesday, tempering its safe-haven appeal for now, as U.S. stocks rallied, although sentiment remained cautious amid a resurgence of new coronavirus cases globally, particularly in the United States. Demand for the U.S. currency proved remarkably stable as oil prices steadied while European bourses traded in negative territory. Against a basket of its rivals, the dollar index dropped 0.5% to 96.527. The euro rose 0.6% versus the dollar to $1.1337 marginally, while a...

Qatar Seeks to Mediate Amid Tensions After US Strike in Iraq
Wednesday, 15 January 2020 23:50 WIB | GLOBAL |Global

Qatar is seeking to play a mediating role amid escalating tensions following a U.S. drone strike that killed a top Iranian general in Iraq and brought the region to the brink of an all-out war involving Washington and Tehran, the Qatari foreign minister said Wednesday.

Speaking on an official visit to Baghdad, Foreign Minister Mohammed bin Abdulrahman al-Thani said Qatar was making contacts with regional and international countries in order to de-escalate tensions. His visit to Iraq comes days after Qatar's Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani visited Tehran.

Al-Thani was scheduled to meet with Iraqi Prime Minister Adel Abdul-Mahdi and President Barham Saleh later Wednesday.

 "We discussed ways of decreasing tensions in our region and we have our common efforts and joint efforts together with our friends in Iran and America and our talks," said al-Hakim. "Our talks concentrated on Iraq not being a scene for fighting.''

Tension soared following a U.S. drone strike early this month that killed a top Iranian general, Qassem Soleimani, and senior Iraq milita commander Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis. Iran retaliated by firing a barrage of missiles that hit two bases in Iraq where American troops are based, but caused no casualties. Tensions soared further after Iran, just hours following the missile attacks, mistakenly shot down an Ukrainian passenger plane that had taken off from Tehran, killing all 176 people on board.
