Gold surges a bit in Asia after fresh NKorea missile launch
On Wednesday, gold didn’t manage to grow a lot in Asia following a fresh ballistic missile test by North Korea.
In New York, December delivery gold futures added no more than 0.02% showing an outcome of $1,293.60 per troy ounce.
Overnight, the number one precious commodity pared its revenues because reports informing that North Korea launched another ballistic missile failed to underpin safe haven demand.
Early on Wednesday North Korea dared to launch another ballistic missile from an area near Pyongyang, as South Korea’s military told, while the Japanese authorities stressed the missile fell in Japan’s exclusive economic zone.
As the Pentagon told, it was an ICBM. Japan PM Shinzo Abe called an emergency meeting of cabinet ministers over the missile test.

Riskier currencies and stocks are in favor of investors. Surprisingly, gold rallies too. Let’s have a closer look.
Congratulations! Gold has just opened a new era... or, rather, reopened...
