COMEX GOLD SIGNAL
INTERNATIONAL COMEX NEWS
- Gold prices were little changed on Monday as the dollar traded near 16-month highs and traders awaited U.S. inflation data due later this week. Meanwhile, Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell’s speech on Wednesday would also be closely watched as he discusses national and global economic issues. The Fed indicated earlier this month that it is still on course to hike interest rates in December.
- The race is on for liquefied natural gas (LNG) producers to build export terminals as demand soars, but the criteria for financing such mega-projects have shifted as traditional relationships with LNG consumers have begun to disintegrate. Royal Dutch Shell’s (AS:RDSa) final investment decision (FID) taken last month for a $30 billion LNG Canada project was a shot in the arm for the LNG industry, which is emerging from almost three years of low prices and investment.
- Oil rose by more than 1 percent on Monday, set for its largest one-day increase in a month after Saudi Arabia said OPEC and its partners believed demand was softening enough to warrant an output cut of 1 million barrels per day. Saudi Arabia, the world’s largest oil exporter, said on Sunday it would cut its shipments by half a million barrels per day in December due to seasonal lower demand.
- Emerging markets are already contending with U.S.-China trade tensions, policy tightening in developed countries, and a resurgent dollar. Higher oil prices are exactly what they don’t need right now. But that’s what they may get as the year draws to an end. With crude oil in a bear market, Saudi Arabia said OPEC and its allies should reverse about half the increase in output they made earlier this year as fears of shortages are supplanted by concerns about oversupply and collapsing prices. Oil futures in New York climbed as much as 1.6 percent.
- Prime Minister Theresa May’s Brexit strategy came under attack from all sides on Monday, increasing the risk that her plan for leaving the EU will be voted down by parliament and thrust the United Kingdom toward a potentially chaotic “no-deal” Brexit. In a sign that Brexit talks could go down to the wire, EU sources said they want clarity from London by the end of Wednesday at the latest if there is to be a summit this month to approve a Brexit deal.
- China will further open its economy in the face of rising protectionism, Premier Li Keqiang said as he arrived in Singapore on Monday for meetings with Asia-Pacific leaders that will focus on speeding up work on a major new trade pact. Li’s remarks in an article in Singapore’s Straits Times newspaper came as Singapore’s Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong called for more regional integration, saying multi lateralism was under threat from political pressures.
