COMEX GOLD SIGNAL
INTERNATIONAL COMEX NEWS
- Gold prices rose more than 1% on Thursday, regaining the psychologically important $1,200 level as a rout in global stock markets spurred by fears over rising bond yields, slowing global growth and trade tensions bolstered safe haven demand. December gold futures were up $13.90 or 1.16% to $1,207.30 by 07:45 AM ET (11:45 GMT) on the Comex division of the New York Mercantile Exchange.
- OPEC sees the oil market as well supplied and is wary of creating a glut next year, the group’s secretary-general said on Thursday, suggesting producers are in no rush to expand a June agreement that raises output. Oil prices have rallied this year on expectations that U.S. sanctions on Iran will strain supplies by lowering shipments from OPEC’s third largest oil producer.
- Chinese oil buyers are making a beeline for a bargain across the Pacific. With Canadian oil over 60 percent cheaper than U.S. benchmark West Texas Intermediate and global marker Brent, China’s refiners are being lured to the heavy and sludgy crude. That’s because, apart from being a source of fuel, it’s also rich in bitumen — a black residue used to build everything from roads to runways and roofs.
- U.S. President Donald Trump launched a second day of criticism against the Federal Reserve on Thursday, calling its interest rate increases a “ridiculous” policy that was making it more expensive for his administration to finance its escalating deficits. “I’m paying interest at a high rate because of our Fed. And I’d like our Fed not to be so aggressive because I think they’re making a big mistake,” Trump said in a Thursday morning interview on Fox & Friends.
- White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow said in an interview with CNBC on Thursday that the Federal Reserve remained independent and U.S. President Donald Trump is not dictating policy to the Fed. His remarks came hours after Trump criticized the Fed for raising interest rates too quickly, in his second attack against the central bank in the past 24 hours.
- China drew over $17 billion in orders for a sovereign dollar bond sale of $3 billion on Thursday against a backdrop of a global market sell-off and trade war with the United States. The $3 billion deal is only the third U.S.-dollar denominated issuance by China in the last 14 years. It returned to global markets in October last year for the first time since 2004. China is selling five-year, 10-year and 30-year bonds at 30-35, 45-50, 70-75 basis points (bps) over U.S. Treasuries, respectively, according to a term sheet seen by Reuters.
