Gold rebounds from 5-week maximums as trade tensions relieve

Gold rebounds from 5-week maximums as trade tensions relieve

Information is not investment advice

On Monday, gold headed south, drifting away from five-week maximums after news that China and America had started talks over soaring trade tensions relieved worries over a probable all-out trade conflict.

April delivery gold futures dived 0.33% on the Comex exchange in New York being worth $1,345.4 a troy ounce.

On Friday, gold prices tacked on to a five-week maximum of $1350.40 because a weaker evergreen buck along with growing trade tensions spurred demand for the number one precious commodity.

On Monday, the Wall Street Journal informed that Beijing and Washington were discussing a possibility to improve American access to China’s markets following a week of threats to make use of trade duties.

Recent concerns that protectionist trade policies from China and the United States would result in a trade conflict have underpinned gold in the face of worries over the impact on global economic surge.

The report also revealed that the safe haven yen rebounded from 16-month maximums versus the evergreen buck and American stock futures rebounded too because investor sentiment revived.

The US dollar index, rating the greenback’s actual strength versus a basket of six leading currencies, headed south 0.15% hitting a near one-month minimum of 88.97.

Market participants cling to gold as a good store of value in times of market turmoil or geopolitical uncertainty, while a weaker greenback makes the US dollar-denominated metal more affordable for buyers of other currencies.

As for other precious metals, silver futures inched down 0.16% showing a result of $16.555 per troy ounce, while platinum futures were intact, sticking to $954.9.

As for base commodities, copper futures slumped 1.44 % hitting $2.950 a pound. As a matter of fact, recent trade fears have put pressure on prices to their weakest value since December after they reached an almost four-year maximum in 2017.
