  • Gold prices were largely unchanged on Wednesday, as investors grappled with rising U.S. interest rates, although the metal drew some support from the dollar coming off a seven-week high. Comex gold futures were down 20 cents at $1,191.30 a troy ounce by 10:28AM ET. Meanwhile, spot gold was trading at $1,188.35 per ounce, down $1.50, or 0.1%. Yields on the benchmark 10-year Treasury bond rose to around 3.23%, after reaching a seven-year top of 3.261% a day earlier.
  • Crude prices edged lower on Wednesday, as investors watched Hurricane Michael, which has intensified to Category 4 storm and was barreling down on Florida. Some of the storm’s most significant early impact was to offshore energy production. U.S. producers in the Gulf cut oil production by about 40%, the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement said, as they evacuated personnel from 75 platforms in the region.
  • The world’s biggest trading houses said on Wednesday they saw oil prices not falling below $65 per barrel and possibly breaking above $100 next year as U.S. sanctions on Iran reduce crude exports from the Islamic republic. The range of views illustrates deep uncertainty among top industry players over the outlook, given the reimposition of sanctions on Iran and forecasts of slowing economies and energy demand in 2019, potentially leading to choppy trading.

  • The European Union should change its budget rules to make them more effective in bringing down public debts, EU fiscal advisers said in a report on Wednesday, urging the bloc to scrap deficit targets for countries where debt is falling. The publication of the report coincides with a row between Italy and Brussels over the country’s 2019 budget, in which the eurosceptic Italian government plans to flout EU fiscal rules to fulfill electoral promises of government largesse.
  • Despite thousands of jobs set to move to the continent due to Brexit, Britain’s financial services minister said on Wednesday he would do all he can to ensure the City of London remains a major financial center.

  • Sears Holdings Corp (O:SHLD) is preparing to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection as early as Friday, sources said on Wednesday, casting doubt over the future of what was once the world’s largest retailer. Negotiations between Sears Chief Executive Officer Eddie Lampert and the company’s special board committee are at a standstill over the committee’s refusal to approve Lampert’s rescue plan, the sources said. The committee is concerned it will be opening the company up to litigation, one source said. Sears shares were down 27 percent at 43 cents. The stock, which traded above $100 a decade ago, has fallen to less than $1 in the past year.

  • Economic policymakers gathering in Indonesia for this week’s annual meetings of the International Monetary Fund and World Bank should highlight risks to the global economy posed by rising protectionism, the host nation’s finance minister said. The prospect of a further escalation in the trade war between the United States and China – the world’s two largest economies – will haunt finance ministers, central bankers and economists flocking to the resort island of Bali to attend the meetings, which begin on Thursday.
  • The recent jump in U.S. bond yields suggests there is uncertainty among investors over future economic growth prospects, Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas President Robert Kaplan said on Tuesday. The 10-year Treasury yield, which reached a fresh multi-year high on Tuesday, is “telling me that prospects for future U.S. growth are somewhat sluggish (and) that outward growth is looking a little more uncertain,” he said at the Economic Club of New York.
  • Turkey’s private sector has agreed to cut prices on its goods by at least 10 percent across the board, Finance Minister Berat Albayrak said on Tuesday, as he called on businesses to join a national struggle to tame soaring inflation. Berat Albayrak, President Tayyip Erdogan’s son-in-law, rolled out the measures as part of a “fully fledged fight” against inflation. The announcement appeared to leave financial markets cold, however. The lira weakened slightly as he spoke in Istanbul and was at 6.1484 at 1157 GMT, a touch weaker on the day.

Comex gold futures for December delivery fell 1.27% to $1,190.30 a troy ounce as of 10:05 AM ET (14:05 GMT),.

  • Oil prices edged lower on Monday, after the U.S. said it may grant waivers to sanctions against Iran’s crude exports next month, and as Saudi Arabia was said to be replacing any potential shortfall from Iran.

  • Iran’s Oil Minister Bijan Zanganeh has dismissed as “nonsense” claims by the Saudi crown prince that Saudi Arabia can replace sanctions-hit Iranian oil in the market. “(Mohammed) bin Salman’s remarks and such bragging can only satisfy (U.S. President Donald) Trump. No one else will believe him. Iran’s oil cannot be replaced by Saudi Arabia nor any other country,” Zanganeh was quoted as saying on his ministry’s website.

  • India hopes to secure a waiver from U.S. sanctions on Iran before they take effect on Nov. 4, as it had significantly cut Iranian oil imports before the deadline, officials said on Monday.

Washington said on Friday it was considering waivers for nations that were reducing imports of Iranian oil.
  • Emerging markets were “as prepared as they can be” for changes to U.S. monetary policy as the Federal Reserve had been as “transparent” as possible, St. Louis Federal Reserve Bank President James Bullard said in Singapore on Monday.

  • Indonesia plans to use meetings between global finance ministers and central bank chiefs on the island of Bali this week to push for more clarity on the path of interest rates in advanced countries, the country’s central bank governor said on Monday.

  • U.S. job growth slowed sharply in September likely as Hurricane Florence depressed restaurant and retail payrolls, but the unemployment rate fell to near a 49-year low of 3.7 percent, pointing to a further tightening in labor market conditions. The Labor Department’s closely watched monthly employment report on Friday also showed a steady rise in wages, suggesting moderate inflation pressures, which could ease concerns about the economy overheating and keep the Federal Reserve on a path of gradual interest rate increases.
  • The United States is likely to succeed in shutting down the World Trade Organization’s supreme court because other WTO members are powerless to stop it, diplomats, lawyers and officials said at a conference in Geneva on Friday.

  • Federal Reserve Vice Chair Randal Quarles said on Thursday the world’s central banks, including the Fed, risked “quite bad” outcomes if they let themselves be influenced by political considerations. “The outcomes of central banking, particularly in monetary policy, but also in financial regulation, can turn out to be quite bad if they are too subject to the political pressures of the moment,” Quarles said at a community banking conference in St. Louis.

  • Gold prices held steady near two-week highs on Wednesday, remaining supported above the psychologically important $1,200 level even as fears over Italy’s budget woes faded, bolstering risk appetite. December gold futures were little changed at $1,207.9 by 09:39 AM ET (13:39 GMT) on the Comex division of the New York Mercantile Exchange. Prices of the yellow metal remained supported even after reports that Italy appeared to be revising its budget plans.
  • The aluminum market risks being thrown back into turmoil after the world’s largest refinery of a key raw material shut down. Norsk Hydro ASA said it will temporarily close the Alunorte alumina refinery in Brazil because of a long dispute over waste treatment. The plant was already running at just 50 percent capacity. The stoppage will increase the scarcity of alumina — a key ingredient for producing aluminum — and raising the possibility of higher metal prices filtering through the global supply chain, which would affect manufacturers like automakers and canned drink suppliers.
  • Russian President Vladimir Putin said his American counterpart’s Iran sanctions are largely to blame for current high oil prices. “President Trump considers that the price is high; he’s partly right, but let’s be honest,” Putin said at the Russian Energy Week conference in Moscow on Wednesday. “Donald, if you want to find the culprit for the rise in prices, you need to look in the mirror.”

  • Banks doing business in Estonia, which has been at the center of a money-laundering scandal involving Danske Bank , handled more than $1 trillion in cross-border flows between 2008 and 2017, according to the country’s central bank.

The scandal has forced lenders in Estonia and neighboring Latvia to shut down.
  • The U.S. economy appears strong but eventually might face shocks such as a “political crisis” or an abrupt and difficult exit by Britain from the European Union, Richmond Federal Reserve President Thomas Barkin said on Wednesday.

  • EU officials were waiting anxiously on Thursday for the eurosceptic Italian government’s decisions on its deficit targets for next year, which could challenge the bloc’s fiscal rules and further rattle markets.
