Gold futures pull back from a fresh 9-year peak, but hold above $1,800 an ounce

Gold futures ended lower on Thursday, pulling back a day after scoring another settlement at the highest since September 2011, but the haven metal held ground above $1,800 an ounce after data showed weekly U.S. jobless claims remained well above one million. August gold fell $16.80, or 0.9%, to settle at $1,803.80 an ounce, a day after the most-active contract rose 0.6% to settle at $1,820.60, the highest since Sept. 14, 2011, according to FactSet data. Prices on Thursday touched a low of...

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...

South Korea Marks 70 Years Since Outbreak of War with North
Thursday, 25 June 2020 23:39 WIB | GLOBAL |Global

South Korea is commemorating the 70th anniversary of the Korean War™s outbreak amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The anniversary is not an official holiday, but the occasion is often marked with ceremonies, war photography exhibitions and tours to former battlefield sites for visiting foreign veterans.

This year, many public observances have been scaled down or canceled because of the coronavirus, which health officials say is now in its second wave in South Korea.

Kim Young-ho was among 370 Korean War veterans honored Thursday morning at a ceremony in Cheorwon County, northeast of Seoul and adjacent to the demilitarized zone that has separated the two Koreas since the early 1950s.

Seoul™s Ministry of Patriots and Veterans Affairs estimates 84,000 Korean War veterans are still alive.

In accordance with physical-distancing regulations, all participants in the event were required to wear masks and were seated a meter away from each other. Guest attendance was more limited than was the case in previous years, local officials said.

Kim said it was inevitable that the commemoration needed to be smaller because of the coronavirus but that he is more disappointed that after 70 years, the standoff between the two Koreas is still not resolved.

Faced with restrictions on in-person observances, some cultural institutions are making their Korean War anniversary exhibitions available online.

The Korean Film Archive is showing five feature-length movies about the war on its YouTube channel and will make several short films available on its video-on-demand service this month, planning official Jeon Min-hwa said, adding the screenings are meant to remind viewers that the conflict is œstill ongoing.  A peace treaty to officially end the war has still not been signed.

The National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Seoul is using its YouTube channel to display around 250 works of art that depict wartime scenes.
