Gold sinks in Asia, remaining backed on Middle East tensions

On Friday, gold went down in Asia, while being backed due to Middle East tensions between Saudi Arabia and Iran and an approaching summit in Vietnam among Asia-Pacific nations.

December delivery gold futures slumped 0.11% in New York trading at $1,286.13 a troy ounce.

Overnight, gold climbed up to three-week maximums amid a decline in the greenback on fears that the Senate would postpone corporate tax cuts until 2019.

Gold contributed to revenues from Wednesday’s trading session after the US currency dived on reports that on Thursday Senate Republicans will suggest delaying a cut in the corporate tax rate to 20% from 35% until 2019.

The very news of a probable delay to corporate tax cuts reversed recent risk-on sentiment, driving a flight-to-safety as investors happened to unwind their bullish bets on risky assets that followed on hopes that President Trump’s tax-reform plans would be operative before year-end.
