Gold rallies more than 1%
On Thursday, gold jumped over 1%, thus getting back to the psychologically crucial mark of $1,200 because a rout in global stock markets underpinned worries over soaring bond gains, speeding down global growth, not to mention trade clashes.
December delivery gold futures jumped by 1.16% on the Comex exchange being worth $1,207.30. On Wednesday, the yellow metal had concluded at $1,189.30.

Hopes for soaring interest rates will most probably remain a headwind for the yellow metal. Interest rate hikes as well as higher American bond gains dampen appeal for the most popular precious commodity that doesn’t offer yields.
December delivery silver futures rallied by 0.59% hitting $14.41 a troy ounce.
On Wednesday, gold was nearly intact, sticking with a four-month minimum because better-than-anticipated economic data from China kept global appetite for risky assets healthy and also tamed demand for havens…
