Gold Reached Two-Month Peak as Trump Uncertainty Looms



Gold climbed on Monday, hitting its highest in two months as uncertainty regarding the economic policies of U.S. President Donald Trump pressured investors to turn to safer assets. Uncertainty concerning Trump's policies drove the dollar to a 1-? month low against a basket of currencies.

Spot gold was 0.56 percent higher at $1,216.33 per ounce. It previously reached $1,219.43, its highest since Nov. 22. U.S. gold futures was up at $1,215.60. The precious metal ended one percent higher last week for its fourth consecutive week of gains and longest stretch of weekly rises since July. Data from the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) showed that speculators increased their net long positions in COMEX gold contracts for a second week in the week to Jan. 17.

Among other precious metals, silver climbed 0.93 percent to $17.19 and platinum added 0.77 percent to $983.50. Palladium was 1.57 percent lower at $776.00, as it previously hit $795.60, its highest since May 2015.

Australia Inflation Gains 0.5% On Quarter In Q4



Consumer prices in Australia advanced 0.5 percent on quarter in the fourth quarter of 2016, the Australian Bureau of Statistics said on Wednesday.

That was beneath expectations for 0.7 percent, which would have been unchanged from the previous three months.

The most significant price rises in Q4 were tobacco (+7.4 percent), automotive fuel (+6.7 percent) and restaurant meals (+1.1 percent).

These rises were partially offset by falls in furnishings, household equipment and services (-0.8 percent) and communication (-0.8 percent).

Vegetables rose 2.5 percent in Q4 as adverse weather conditions in major growing areas affected supply for particular vegetables (potatoes, capsicums, broccoli and cauliflower). Offsetting these rises are price falls for salad vegetables, tomatoes, lettuce and celery.

The most significant offsetting price falls in Q4 were international holiday travel and accommodation (-2.6 percent), accessories (-5.1 percent) and waters, soft drinks and juices (-3.2 percent).

On a yearly basis, inflation gained 1.5 percent -0 again shy of forecasts for 1.6 percent but up from 1.3 percent in the three months prior.

The Reserve Bank of Australia's trimmed mean was up 0.4 percent on quarter and 1.6 percent on year, while the weighted median gained 0.4 percent on month and 1.5 percent on year.

Also on Wednesday, Westpac Bank said that its leading economic indicator for the Australian economy jumped in December, rising 0.44 percent last month.

That follows the upwardly revised 0.03 percent gain in November (originally 0.02 percent).

The six-month growth rate climbed from flat in November to 1.28 percent in December; in all, the index has been above trend in five straight months.

Dollar, U.S. Yields Higher Amid Uncertainty on Trump?s Protectionist Stance



The dollar held gains as Treasury yields rebounded, lifting the greenback from recent lows against the yen and euro amid unease regarding U.S. President Donald Trump's protectionist stance. The dollar index dropped as low as 99.922 on Tuesday, as the initial enthusiasm tempered by Trump's inaugural speech from the previous week was pointing towards trade protectionism. The index was last at 100.270.

The U.S. currency was 0.1 percent higher, it had added nearly one percent the day earlier, jumping from 112.520, its lowest since late November. The euro was steady at $1.0730. The common currency has shed nearly 0.3 percent overnight, retreating from a near seven-week peak of $1.0755. The pound was 0.1 percent higher. It had weakened to as low as $1.2420 overnight before rebounding after the British Supreme Court ruled that the government will pass through parliament.

The Australian dollar climbed 0.2 percent at $0.7591. However, the dollar's overnight rise kept the Aussie away from a 10-week peak of $0.7609 touched the day earlier. U.S. Treasury yields rose as investors seized equities on better outlook on latest corporate profits, reducing their safe-haven demand for bonds triggered by Trump's protectionist trade stance.

Strong Quarterly Results, Upbeat 2017 Forecast Boost Boeing Shares



Boeing Co. reported positive quarterly profit and operating cash and issued an optimistic outlook for the performance of the company in 2017 as it benefits from its aggressive cost-cutting measures, increasing productivity and President Donald Trump's pro-growth stance.

The company's stock surged almost 5% to $168.50 on Wednesday after the firm reported it is projecting to generate a record $10.75 billion in operating cash this 2017.

The total is higher compared to the record $10.5 billion in 2016 and is significantly higher than the $10.4 billion that analysts had projected for the current year.

Boeing projected core earnings of $9.10 to $9.30 per share this year, up from the $7.24 in 2016. It expects to deliver around 760-764 commercial carriers in 2017 and surpass its 748 deliveries in 2016.

After experiencing a slowdown in orders for new jetliners, Boeing has concentrated on streamlining plants to reduce costs and increase profits. The company also took advantage of the lower cost of parts for its 787 jet as the plane hit crucial production milestones, as it delivered its 500th 787 jet in December.

CEO Dennis Muilenburg said an increase in cost-savings and productivity was behind the company's strong performance and revenue guidance. He assured that the progress will not slow down in these aspects.

Dollar Climbs as Focus on U.S. GDP



The dollar inched up and rebounded from a seven-week low on optimism regarding the U.S. economic outlook and corporate earnings, however the protectionist policies of U.S. President Donald Trump raised unease for global trade. The dollar index was last at 100.47. The index made a rebound overnight, after slipping to a seven-week low of 99.793.

U.S. equities and Treasury yields have increased in the past few weeks, driven by the upbeat U.S. economic outlook and Trump's indications of raised public spending, but concerns on potentially new barriers have added pressure to the dollar in the last two weeks. The U.S. currency is on course to weaken 0.2 percent against the basket of currencies of its trade-weighted rivals for the week. Investors are concerned about Trump's plans to build a U.S-Mexican border wall to prevent illegal immigration. The Mexican peso weakened more than 0.5 percent versus the dollar after reports of the border tax.

The dollar last fell 0.1 percent against the Japanese currency to 114.40 yen. The greenback rebounded overnight from a low of 113.045 to 114.860, climbing 1.1 percent. The euro was last at $1.0681 versus the dollar, after falling from the day's peak of $1.0766, a level near a seven-week peak.

It made intraday high at 35.32 and low at 35.25 marks.
Intraday bias remains bearish till the time pair holds key resistance at 35.33 marks.

Dollar Edges Down on Flat U.S. Growth Data



The dollar edged down on Monday, retreating from a one-week peak against a basket of currencies as Treasury yields fell on data which showed that the U.S. expanded at a slower-than-expected pace. The greenback fell 0.35 percent at 114.660 against the Japanese yen after climbing to 115.380, its highest since Jan 20.

The latest data released showed that U.S. gross domestic product expanded at a 1.9 percent annualised pace in the last three months of 2016, in comparison to a 3.5 percent rate in the third quarter. The dollar index against a basket of major currencies declined to a seven-week low of 99.793 before climbing to a one-week peak of 100.820 a day after. The index was last 0.2 percent off at 100.350. Focus on the market is between U.S. President Donald Trump's protectionist angle, perceived as negative for the dollar, and prospects of fiscal stimulus under the new administration, seen as positive for the greenback.

The euro strengthened and was last 0.3 percent higher at $1.0733. The pound rose 0.3 percent at $1.2593 versus a relatively weaker dollar while the Australian dollar climbed 0.1 percent at $0.7555.
