Gold extends loss to a third session as dollar strengthens to 1 1/2-year high

Gold prices on Monday settled lower for a third straight session as a popular gauge of the dollar strengthened to its highest level in more than 17 months, weighing on demand for the precious metal. December gold lost $5.10, or 0.4%, to settle at $1,203.50 an ounce, after posting a drop of 2% last week, falling nearly 1.4% on Friday alone. Monday marked the lowest finish for a most-active contract since Oct. 10, according to FactSet data. Prices for the metal have now posted declines in six...

Gold down a fourth session as dollar index sees modest pull back from 17-month high

Gold prices ended lower Tuesday, logging a fourth straight decline and the seventh down session out of the past eight, as a popular gauge of the dollar slipped but remained near its highest level in roughly 17 months.

Gold Prices May Fall Further as US Dollar Recovery Continues

Gold prices fell even as bond yields tracked stocks lower and the priced-in rate hike path implied in Fed Funds futures flattened Friday. The US Dollar found renewed haven appeal against the risk-off backdrop, and its rise undermined the appeal of anti-fiat alternatives epitomized by the yellow metal. Looking ahead, gold may continue to suffer as risk appetite recovers. S&P 500 futures are pointing convincingly higher ahead of the opening bell on Wall Street, hinting that a recovery in...

Gold Climbs From 1-Month Low as Risk Aversion Rewakes

Gold Holds Near One-Month Low as Inflation in Focus

Gold held near the lowest in a month as investors awaited data on inflation later this week for signs that the Federal Reserve has a case for raising interest rates further. A Labor Department report on Friday showed producer prices in the U.S. rose the most since 2012 on broad gains in costs for goods and services. Consumer inflation probably rebounded in October after easing in September, according to analyst estimates before data due Wednesday.

Gold Loses Shine As Price Falls To $1200 Sweet Spot
Monday, 3 September 2018 20:38 WIB | GOLD CORNER |Gold OutlookGold Corner

Gold is losing some shine for investors as the price has plunged to a 20-month low on the back of emerging market currency depreciation.

The price dropped 3% in recent weeks - taking the price to $1200 an ounce.

The figure is a sweet spot for gold producers as profit margins are eroded by production costs.

The industry regards falling below $1200 an ounce as a trigger for slowing production which hits profits.

Prices are falling as the US dollar strengthens against weaker emerging market currencies.

Emerging market problems

The problems are the weakening Chinese yuan and Turkish lira.

Monetary policy outside America is making the problem worse.

Central banks in Europe and Japan have delayed interest rate rises to create a differentials between global interest rates and those set by the US Federal Reserve and the Bank of England.

œThe dollar™s strength has been one of the most important drivers of gold™s performance this year as confrontational trade rhetoric and sanctions has so far played in favour of the US, says trade body the World Gold Council.

Gold producers and traders are hoping the price will rebound, although the signs are $1200 an ounce seems to be a sticking point for the present.

The WGC cites a short market and global economic uncertainty as drivers that may push the price up.

The good news is gold is still floating above market lows, even though the price has sunk, and the drop is the worse losing streak since 2013, having lost 10% of value since April.

Rally looks a long shot

The thinking is a strong US dollar and strong protectionist talk from US President Donald Trump is boosting the American economy at the expense of gold.

Investors see the dollar as a better prospect for holding value than the precious metal.

But for gold to rally, the dollar will have to weaken and that doesn™t look like happening any time soon.

In fact, the yuan could drop more and add more strength to the dollar if the threatened trade war continues and Trump stacks up billions of dollars of tariffs against Chinese imports.

The latest spot price puts gold just above the $1200 threshold at $1202 as the market holds breath for a fresh week™s trading.
