GOLD TRADING FORECAST TODAY
INTERNATIONAL COMEX NEWS
- Gold seems to depend, at least for now, on one factor: China. Prices of the yellow metal remained in negative territory for a seventh straight session on Tuesday. The dip, however, was modest as buying emerged at the lower level on news that China had targeted slower growth for 2019 amid its unresolved trade war with the United States. Gold futures for April delivery settled down $2.80 at $1,284.70 per ounce on the Comex division of the New York Mercantile Exchange.
- Malaysia will present legal and technical arguments this week against an EU plan to limit the use of palm oil, the head of the country’s marketing agency said on Tuesday, opposing a move that could lead to an eventual ban on the edible oil. The European Commission last month said the use of palm oil in motor fuel should be phased out because oil palm cultivation led to deforestation.
- Oil prices fell nearly 1 percent on Wednesday as bullish output forecasts by two big U.S. producers and a build in U.S. crude stockpiles outweighed ongoing OPEC-led efforts to rein in crude production. International Brent futures were down 55 cents, or 0.8 percent, at $65.31 a barrel at 0209 GMT. U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures were at $56.05 per barrel, down 51 cents, or 0.9 percent.
- Britain’s 800-year-old parliament has a big decision to make, and little time to make it. After months of drama and delay, the country’s fate could be decided next week in a series of Brexit votes in which lawmakers must choose one of two wood-panelled corridors to shuffle down inside the neo-gothic Westminster palace. Each vote, known as a division, takes about 15 minutes. If it takes too long, the Serjeant-at-Arms, dressed in shiny black shoes, knee-high socks and a long woollen suit, will be sent bearing a ceremonial sword to investigate.
- Bank of Japan board member Yutaka Harada said on Wednesday the central bank must ramp up stimulus without delay if risks to the economy threaten achievement of its inflation target. Harada, a vocal advocate of aggressive monetary easing, said Japan’s economy was facing growing risks, including from slowing demand in China, simmering trade tensions, volatile stock price moves and weak private consumption.
- Britain’s scheduled departure from the European Union on March 29 will be delayed by a few months, a Reuters poll found, and a majority of economists say the two sides will eventually agree a free-trade deal. Prime Minister Theresa May is seeking to rework the Brexit deal she agreed with EU leaders and has raised the possibility of a delay of the departure date until June. All but three of 54 economists who answered an extra question in the Feb. 28-March 5 poll said the more than four-decade marriage between Britain and the EU would not be dissolved in a little over three weeks time as planned.
