Latest Market News

Gold posted modest losses at the end of Thursday’s trading session, as data signaling further growth in the U.S. economy eroded demand for the yellow metal. Talk of soft physical demand in China coupled with reports of funds selling gold positions weighed on prices as well.
 
Data released earlier showed consumer confidence rose from a nine-week low as Americans grew more upbeat about the economy, while a separate report revealed jobless claims were close to their lowest level in almost seven years.
 
Thursday’s reports bolstered the dollar and helped underscore investor expectations for the U.S. economic recovery to remain on track, though the data was somewhat surprising in the aftermath of Wednesday’s comments from Federal Reserve Chairwoman Janet Yellen.
 
In a speech delivered to the Economic Club of New York on Wednesday, Yellen said monetary policy will need to remain accommodative for some time, citing slackness in the labor market and low inflation.
 
Gold’s losses on Thursday were tempered amid the latest developments over the turmoil in Ukraine. Foreign ministers from the U.S., Russia, the European Union and Ukraine held crisis talks in Geneva on Thursday in an attempt to diffuse the crisis.
 
On Wednesday, three pro-Russian separatists were killed in clashes with Ukrainian forces in the east of the country. Any escalation in tensions between Russia and the West over Ukraine could offer some upside for bullion, according to analysts.
 
Gold has climbed 7.6% this year, with much of that rise due to increased haven demand linked to Ukraine.
