Gold futures rose for the eighth session in ten to the highest since June 29, as the dollar index fell to the lowest since June 24, 2016, amid a lack of data from the US, the world’s largest economy. Gold’s gains come on the back of dollar’s weakness, following a spate of disappointing US data that cut the chances of a Federal Reserve rate hike later this year. US inflation is still below the Fed’s 2% target, while political concerns mount over President Donald Trump as investigations deepen regarding Russian intervention in the last presidential elections, souring risk appetite in the markets. All this is weighing on the greenback and pushing investors towards safe havens such as gold, after Trump said yesterday his administration will follow what comes next regarding the Paris agreement. Trump added that Comey’s testimony ahead of the Senate Intelligence Committee was filled with lies before moving on to the healthcare issue, saying the country doesn’t have other choices and asserting the need to repeal and replace Obamacare noting the program could be repealed for now and replaced later.
Silver prices slid back slightly after reaching two-week high on Wednesday, following the temporary stabilization of the dollars against major currencies while demand decreased on safe havens. The dollar stopped swooning against other major currencies to hover near its 10-month nadir, resulting in a slip in Silver prices, as ECB’s meeting on Thursday is awaited for more updates. Asian Shares advanced as demand on safe havens declined, affecting Silver prices as investments move to Asian stocks. Trump said his administration will follow what comes next regarding the Paris agreement, adding that his former FBI chief James Comey presented a document containing a number of Russia allegations before his inauguration, expressing that he didn’t want to open this document, and that investigating his family’s money is a wrong thing and a breach of their privacy.
Oil futures tumbled nearly two percent in American trade even as the dollar index hit the lowest since June 24, 2016, amid a lack of data from the US, the world’s largest energy consumer, and ahead of the the Opec and non-Opec Oversight Committee’s meeting in Petersburg, Russia. A report from Russian oil company Petro-Logistics SA showed OPEC’s output rose 145 thousand bpd, surpassing 33 million barrels in June, pointing the finger at Saudi Arabia and Emirates for producing more crude recently, in addition to the exempted countries such as Nigeria and Libya. Otherwise, the Energy Information Administration released its report on US crude stocks earlier this week, showing a drawdown of 4.7 million barrels in the week ending July 14, adding to a 7.6M drawdown in the previous reading, while analysts expected only a 3.6M drop, with total stocks now reaching 490.6 million barrels remaining within the uppermost range on average in this time of year.
