Gold Ends the Week Broadly Flat After Jobs Report Fails to Inpire
Gold prices rose moderately into the weekend but were still down nearly 1% on the week as the onset of caution across financial markets in the last two days didn’t quite erase the bullishness of the previous three. Prices for almost all assets have been supported this week by further moves by central banks to add liquidity and loosen policy in response to concerns about the impact of the novel coronavirus on the Chinese economy and consequently the world economy.The impact of those supportive measures, which have included massive liquidity injections in China, coupled with interest rate cuts in Brazil, Thailand and, on Friday, Russia, has been amplified by a string of economic data from the U.S. which have shown the U.S. economy in decent health.
Oil rises after Russia supports possible supply cuts
Oil prices climbed on Friday after Russia said it backs a recommendation for OPEC and other producers to deepen output cuts amid falling demand for crude as China battles the coronavirus epidemic that has hit global markets. Chinese President Xi Jinping declared a “people’s war” on the epidemic as China’s Hubei province, where Wuhan is located, reported 69 new deaths, taking the total in the country to more than 600. Impact of the coronavirus on the oil market remains largely a Chinese demand story with weakening jet fuel demand and economic run cuts, but demand destruction outside of China has been minimal.
China Reneges on Commodity Deals, Worsening Trade Chaos
Global commodity trade plunged deeper into chaos as Chinese companies started walking away from purchase contracts because of the spread of the deadly coronavirus.
A Chinese buyer of liquefied natural gas and a copper importer declared what’s known as force majeure — meaning they are reneging on deals as the virus constrains their ability to take deliveries. The cancellations are among the first known cases of the legal clause being invoked in commodity contracts due to the epidemic. Hours later, it emerged that Chinese copper smelter Guangxi Nanguo had also declared the same get-out clause, refusing to take delivery of raw materials.
