Gold Spot

Gold slipped on Thursday, weighed down by a stronger dollar and higher U.S. Treasury yields, although the prospect of further fiscal stimulus under a Democrat administration capped the losses. The dollar index rebounded from a multi-year low, making bullion less attractive for other currency holders.

Stocks, U.S. yields climb after Democrats win control of the Senate

Bond prices dropped and stocks hit record highs on Thursday as investors bet Democratic control of the U.S. Congress would enable President-elect Joe Biden to borrow and spend heavily, while higher yields helped a bruised dollar recover from near three-year lows. The bullish sentiment remained throughout the day even as the top two Democrats in Congress called for President Donald Trump to be removed from office, one day after his supporters stormed and vandalized the U.S. Capitol in a rampage that left four people dead.

UK job market strengthened in December for first time in three months – REC

Britain’s job market strengthened for the first time in three months in December, before a renewed lockdown this month, with an increase in permanent hiring and a small rise in the number of vacancies, a monthly survey of recruiters showed on Friday. Growth in permanent hiring remained modest, reflecting ongoing headwinds from the COVID-19 pandemic and Britain’s departure from the European Union.

Dollar downtrend takes breather amid higher yields as jobs report looms

The dollar held on to its biggest gain in more than two months against major peers on Friday as a rise in U.S. yields triggered some unwinding of bearish bets on the currency. The greenback bounced off a nearly three-year low, with traders taking profits against the euro in particular, following a slide in the dollar index of nearly 7% in 2020 and as much as 0.9% in the new year amid expectations of U.S. fiscal stimulus.

特朗普任期接近尾声,美国对伊朗实施新制裁

美国周二将一家生产钢铁产品的中国公司,12家伊朗钢铁和金属制造商以及一家主要伊朗金属和矿业控股公司的三家外国销售代理商列入黑名单,以剥夺伊朗的收入作为美国总统唐纳德·特朗普(Donald Trump)学期结束。 美国财政部在一份声明中将这家位于中国的公司命名为开封平煤新碳材料技术有限公司(KFCC),称其专门从事碳材料的生产,2019年12月- 2020年6月向伊朗钢铁公司提供了数千公吨的材料。

12月日本服务业活动下降11个月-PMI

私人机构的一项调查显示,日本服务业的活动延续了跌势,延续至12月的第11个月,原因是新一轮冠状病毒感染导致业务状况萎缩。 该数据发布之前,日本政府在12月削减了对私人消费的看法,由于国内旅游业等部门表现疲弱,私人消费占日本国内生产总值(GDP)的约55%。 最终的Jibun Bank日本服务采购经理人指数(PMI)从上个月的最终47.8下降至经季节性调整的47.7。

美国工厂活动接近2-1 / 2年高; COVID-19冲击供应链

由于冠状病毒大流行继续将需求从服务转移到商品上,美国工厂活动在12月接近2-1 / 2年的最高水平,尽管新感染的激增正在导致供应链的瓶颈。 ISM的全国工厂活动指数上月升至60.7。 这是自2018年8月以来的最高水平,随后是11月的57.5点。
