GOLD PRICES UP AGAIN

GOLD PRICES UP AGAIN

REUTERS - JUNE 1, 2020 -  Gold prices rose on Monday as riots in major U.S. cities rattled investors already reeling from strained Sino-U.S. ties and boosted the demand for the safe-haven metal, with a weaker dollar lending further support.

Spot gold gained 0.9% to $1,741.61 per ounce by 0509 GMT. U.S. gold futures was up 0.3% to $1,757.50.

“Concerns about the unrest in the United States at the moment appear to be weighing on market sentiment,” said Michael McCarthy, chief strategist at CMC Markets, adding that rising tensions between the world’s top two economies further supported gold.

Protesters have flooded the streets in the United States over the death of George Floyd in police custody, in a wave of outrage sweeping a politically and racially divided nation.

The closely packed crowds and demonstrators not wearing masks have sparked fears of a resurgence of COVID-19, which has killed more than 101,000 Americans.

Meanwhile, in Asia, China’s state media and the Hong Kong government lashed out on Sunday at U.S. President Donald Trump’s pledge to end Hong Kong’s special status if Beijing imposes new national security laws on the city.

Gold is often used as a safe store of value during times of political and financial uncertainty.

Indicative of sentiment, holdings of SPDR Gold Trust, the world’s largest gold-backed exchange-traded fund, rose 0.3% to 1,123.14 tonnes on Friday, a fresh seven-year high.

Further supporting gold’s appeal, the dollar index fell 0.3% against its rivals.

Elsewhere, silver rose 2.5% to $18.29 per ounce, its highest since Feb. 25.

Speculators cut their bullish positions in COMEX gold and increased them in silver contracts in the week to May 26, the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission said on Friday.

Palladium rose 0.9% to $1,961.50 per ounce, and platinum increased 0.4% to $841.37.
