Gold earns in Asia on NKorea remarks on upcoming nuclear testing

Gold earns in Asia on NKorea remarks on upcoming nuclear testing

On Friday, gold edged up in Asia because market participants digested rather an alarming report that North Korea was going to test a hydrogen bomb over the Pacific Ocean. Additionally, they closely watched a policy speech on Brexit.

December delivery gold futures rallied 0.36% being worth $1,299.48 a troy ounce.

Overnight, the precious commodity tumbled abruptly because investors kept unwinding their bullish bets on gold in the wake of the Fed’s policy statement that drove expectations of a year-end rate lift.

Gold declined to a more than four-week minimum because on Wednesday a bit hawkish Fed told that it would get down to unwinding its huge portfolio of bonds in October. Moreover, the bank stressed that a year-end rate lift was still appropriate.

Gold happens to be very sensitive to fluctuations in American interest rates. It’s because they raise the opportunity cost of holding non-yielding assets, including bullion.
