  • Gold prices were higher on Wednesday, as political uncertainty weighed on the U.S. dollar and investors looked ahead to meeting minutes from the Federal Reserve. Comex gold futures for December delivery rose 0.20% to a one-week high of $1,202.40 a troy ounce as of 10:25 AM ET (14:25 GMT). The minutes from the Fed’s latest policy meeting come out at 2:00 PM ET (18:00 GMT), which investors will look to for clues on future monetary policy.
  • After a knee-jerk reaction to the downside, West Texas Intermediate oil held onto solid gains in North American trade on Wednesday, as weekly data showed that oil supplies in the U.S. registered a much larger-than-expected draw, although gasoline stockpiles unexpectedly increased and distillate inventories rose more than expected. Crude oil for October delivery on the New York Mercantile Exchange rose $1.63, or 2.48%, to trade at $67.47 a barrel by 10:45 AM ET (15:45 GMT) compared to $67.27 ahead of the report.

  • Agreement between Mexico and the United States on outstanding bilateral issues in the renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement could be just a few hours away, Mexican officials said on Wednesday. “We hope that we’ll have a solution in the next couple of hours, or the next couple of days,” Mexican Economy Minister Ildefonso Guajardo told reporters before entering the offices of U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer for NAFTA talks.
  • Israel’s central bank on Wednesday criticized a government plan to sharply boost defense spending, saying it would come at the expense of civilian spending and probably increase the budget deficit and state’s debt burden. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told ministers last week that to meet expected threats in the coming decade, he intends to increase defense spending by 0.2 to 0.3 percent of gross domestic product under the “2030 Security Concept”.
  • The natural state of a capitalist economy is expansion. Recessions occur when “something breaks” rather than an expansion simply dying of old age. Unfortunately, central banks have a history of pumping the brakes for too long and too hard when attempting to contain growth and inflation and are often the cause of a recession.

  • Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras hailed the end of a “modern-day Odyssey” on Tuesday after Greece emerged from nine years of bailouts, saying it should never forget the harsh lessons learned under tight financial supervision by its creditors. “This is a day of liberation,” Tsipras declared, standing on a hilltop overlooking a bay on the Ionian island of Ithaca.

  • After lying low on the Riviera through the summer break following a scandal over his bodyguard that has rocked his presidency, Emmanuel Macron embarks this week on the next wave of deep reform to France’s economy and institutions.

  • Gold is hitting new milestones of misery. Exchange-traded funds tracking the metal have bled assets for 13 consecutive weeks, the longest run in five years, investors have placed the biggest gold short on record, and bullion’s chief foe — a strong dollar — is extending its market grip. Gold’s 9 percent tumble this year belies the turmoil in emerging markets and jitters over technology companies, the anchor of the U.S. equity bull market.
  • Base metals rebounded, pushing copper back above $6,000 a metric ton, on easing trade tensions between the U.S. and China, and signs of stronger demand. Copper for three-month delivery rose 1.6 percent to $6,020 per ton as of 10:54 a.m. on the London Metal Exchange. Most other metals were also higher, with aluminum adding 2.3 percent. Copper prices extended gains on Monday after data showed orders to withdraw metal from LME warehouses increased by the most in three years.
  • Brent oil stabilized near $72 per barrel on Monday after several weeks of decline, weighed down by concerns over slowing global economic growth but supported by an expected fall in supply from Iran due to U.S. sanctions. Brent crude futures, a benchmark for international oil prices, were at $72.08 per barrel at 1336 GMT, up 25 cents. U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures were up 6 cents at $65.96 per barrel.

  • A broad cross-section of U.S. businesses has a message for the Trump administration: new tariffs on $200 billion of Chinese imports will force Americans to pay more for items they use throughout their daily lives, from cradles to coffins. Six days of public hearings on the proposed duties of up to 25 percent will start on Monday in Washington as part of President Donald Trump’s and the U.S. Trade Representative’s efforts to pressure Beijing for sweeping changes to its trade and economic policies.
  • Venezuela President Nicolas Maduro carried out one of the greatest currency devaluations in history over the weekend — a 95 percent plunge that will test the capacity of an already beleaguered population to stomach even more pain. One likely outcome is that inflation, which already was forecast to reach 1 million percent this year, will get fresh fuel from the measures. Prices are currently rising at an annualized rate of 108,000 percent, according to Bloomberg’s Café con Leche index.
  • Italian Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini said on Monday the government will stand up any against market attacks or debt downgrades that may come its way. Italian stocks and bonds have repeatedly come under pressure since the anti-establishment coalition of the right-wing League, led by Salvini, and the 5-Star Movement took office in June.

  • Gold prices hovered near a 17-month low on Monday amid lingering worries over the U.S.-China trade conflict, while a stronger U.S. dollar also put pressure on the yellow metal. Gold futures for December delivery on the Comex division of the New York Mercantile Exchange fell by $0.9, or 0.07%, to $1,224.4 a troy ounce by 1:50AM ET (05:50 GMT). Chinese authorities announced on Friday that it would impose tariffs, ranging from 5% to 35%, on $60 billion in U.S. goods that include many agriculture-related goods if the U.S. proceeded with placing more tariffs on Chinese imports.
  • Oil prices rose on Monday after Saudi crude production registered a surprising dip in July and as American shale drilling appeared to plateau. Markets also anticipated an announcement from Washington later on Monday on renewed U.S. sanctions against major oil exporter Iran. So-called “snapback” sanctions are due to be reinstated at 12:01 a.m. EDT on Tuesday, according to a U.S. Treasury official. Spot Brent crude oil futures were at $73.42 per barrel at 0653 GMT on Monday, up 21 cents, or 0.3 percent, from their last close.
  • For decades, the Friendship pipeline has delivered oil from Russia to Europe, heating German homes even in the darkest days of the Cold War. But a new pipeline that will carry gas direct from Russia under the Baltic Sea to Germany is doing rather less for friendship, driving a wedge between Germany and its allies and giving Chancellor Angela Merkel a headache. For U.S. President Donald Trump, Nord Stream 2 is a “horrific” pipeline that will increase Germany’s dependence on Russian energy.

  • More than five years into a radical plan to boost the world’s third-biggest economy, the Bank of Japan sent a message of quiet surrender last week, admitting it couldn’t stoke inflation and walking back steps intended to do so. The man leading the BOJ away from its program of unprecedented asset-buying and low or negative interest rates is the man who largely crafted the measures in the first place, bank deputy governor Masayoshi Amamiya. A fan of classical music who has recently begun to favor Russian composers, Amamiya “plays the piano, guitar and flute well,” says a person who has known him for decades.
