Gold Prices Up on Rate Cut Expectations

Gold prices gained on Friday in Asia on rate cut expectations, but gains were capped by a rebound in U.S. stocks.

Gold Busts Above $1,350 as Iran Tension, Fed Outlook Spur Demand

Gold smashed above $1,350 an ounce to a 14-month high as rising geopolitical tensions bolster haven demand ahead of next week's Federal Reserve meeting, when policy makers may move closer to cutting rates.

US Blames Iran for Attacks on 2 Oil Tankers in Gulf of Oman

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is blaming Iran for Thursday's attacks on two oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman, off the Iranian coast. One of the tankers was set on fire and sent up smoke thick and black enough to be seen by satellites in space. Pompeo said the U.S. based its determination that Iran was behind the attacks on intelligence, the weapons used, and what he called the "level of expertise" needed to carry out such an operation. The secretary noted that Iran was behind other...

Gold pares gains on stronger dollar, posts a modest weekly decline

Gold futures pared much of their earlier gains Friday as a strength in the dollar dulled the dollar-denominated metal's appeal to investors. Prices still logged their highest settlement since last Friday. For the week, they fell by 0.1%, with the haven metal failing to get a significant boost on the back of tensions in the Middle East and Hong Kong. "The fact that gold has managed to trade over $1,340 is a positive sign for next week," said Chintan Karnani, chief market analyst at Insignia...

Seeking Brexit Support, May Offers Vote on New Referendum
Wednesday, 22 May 2019 00:03 WIB | GLOBAL |Global

In a major concession, British Prime Minister Theresa May on Tuesday offered U.K. lawmakers the chance to vote on whether to hold a new referendum on the country's membership in the European Union ” but only if it backs her thrice-rejected Brexit agreement.

May made the offer as part of attempts to persuade Parliament to back a divorce agreement that will allow the U.K. to leave the EU in an orderly fashion.

She plans to ask the House of Commons to vote in early June on a withdrawal agreement bill, in what she called a "last chance" to seal a Brexit deal.

In a speech Tuesday, May said the bill would include "a requirement to vote on whether to hold a second referendum and this must take place before the Withdrawal Agreement can be ratified."

But the Brexit referendum will only happen if Parliament backs the EU withdrawal bill and it becomes law, something that still seems unlikely.

Britain was due to leave the EU on March 29, but the bloc extended the deadline until Oct. 31 amid the political impasse. Talks on securing a compromise on the Brexit deal between May's Conservatives and the opposition Labour Party broke down last week.
