Gold settles with a gain for the session and shorter week

Gold futures climbed on Thursday, also posting a gain for the holiday-shortened week, as concerns over the increase in COVID-19 cases in part of the world provided safe-haven support for the metal. Some of that support lacked in the U.S., where data showed better-than-expected jobs growth in June. "The employment numbers are spectacular but an 11% unemployment rate is still elevated," said Jeff Wright, executive vice president of GoldMining Inc. "COVID cases are back on rise and numerous...

Gold futures end lower a day after highest finish since 2011

Gold futures pulled back Wednesday, after settling a day earlier at their highest since 2011. "Gold remains in an uptrend but some fatigue may be kicking in," said Lukman Otunuga, senior research analyst at FXTM. Data from Automatic Data Processing Inc. Wednesday showed that U.S. private-sector employers added 2.37 million jobs in June, less than analysts expected. Still, "some optimism may return over the U.S. economy recovering quicker than expected," something that may hit haven gold, he...

Australia Condemns Coronavirus Racism
Friday, 14 February 2020 23:59 WIB | GLOBAL |Global

Australia has extended its ban on travelers from mainland China for at least another week because of the coronavirus outbreak.  The country's chief medical officer has also condemned xenophobia towards Chinese Australians as the number of deaths from COVID-19  continues to grow.

Foreign nationals traveling from China are not allowed to come to Australia until at least February 22.  The ban, originally for two weeks, has been extended by seven days and is preventing thousands of Chinese students attending Australian universities and colleges. 

The restrictions also bar Chinese visitors from Australia during the usually busy summer vacation period.

The tourism industry here believes the financial impact of the coronavirus will be worse than the damage caused by the bushfire crisis.

Chinese-Australians say they have faced an increase in hostility both online and in-person since the outbreak began.  Some have said on social media that they fear for their safety.  A young boy was reportedly bullied at school by pupils demanding he be tested for the virus. 

Australia's chief medical officer Brendan Murphy says the discrimination is unacceptable.

The number of confirmed coronavirus cases in Australia remains at 15.  Six patients have recovered. 

Two planeloads of Australians flown out of the virus epicenter at Wuhan in China's Hubei Province continue to be held in quarantine on Christmas Island in the Indian Ocean and at an abandoned mining camp near the city of Darwin. No cases of the disease have been diagnosed among those in isolation.
