Gold price trading higher for second day in a row after the impressive rebound from weekly low at $1,486 as risk-off returns to markets as a no-deal Brexit looks now as a possible scenario. On the US-China trade tensions front, the situation is getting darker ahead of the negotiations restart later this week, as China said it would retaliate after US Government put Chinese technology companies on blacklist. The negotiations starting on Thursday, ahead of an increase in U.S. tariffs on $250 billion worth of Chinese imports, to 30% from 25% on 15th October 2019. Under these circumstances investor’s appetite turned to safe-haven assets such as gold and Yen. According to World Gold Council, the global gold-backed ETFs hit an all-time high, adding 75.2 metric tons of gold in September to a total of 2,808 metric tons.
Investors await the release of minutes from September FOMC meeting due today.
