Gold Spot

Gold prices edged higher in a choppy trading on Tuesday as the U.S. dollar and Treasury yields eased, while prospects of higher inflation driven by more U.S. fiscal stimulus provided further support to the metal. U.S. President-elect Joe Biden said Americans needed more economic relief from the COVID-19 pandemic and that he would deliver a plan costing “trillions” of dollars.

S&P 500 ends with slightest gain as small caps favored

The benchmark S&P 500 closed barely higher on Tuesday while shares in smaller companies soared to record highs as investors favored more economically sensitive market segments as they bet on a recovery in 2021. U.S. Treasury yields climbed and the small cap Russell 2000 finished up 1.8% at a record high, after outperforming throughout the session, along with the cyclical financial and energy sectors, which are heavily dependent on a strong economy for growth.

Oil prices extend gains after U.S. inventory drop

Oil prices rose on Wednesday, with U.S. crude gaining for a seventh day, after an industry report showed a further drop in inventories and investors shrugged off worsening developments in the pandemic. Both benchmarks are trading at the highest since February, before the coronavirus outbreak in China began spreading across the world and billions of people went into lockdowns to prevent a pandemic that is now in a deadlier second wave.

U.S. labor market losing speed as COVID-19 spirals out of control

U.S. job openings fell moderately in November, but mounting layoffs amid rampant COVID-19 infections supported views that the labor market recovery from the pandemic was stalling. The Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey, or JOLTS report from the Labor Department on Tuesday followed on the heels of news last Friday that the economy shed workers in December for the first time in eight months. The slowing labor market and a worsening public health crisis could pressure the incoming Biden administration to deliver a bigger relief package.

标准普尔500指数周二收盘几乎没有走高,而小型公司的股票飙升至历史新高,因为投资者青睐对经济更为敏感的细分市场,因为他们押注2021年复苏。美国国债收益率攀升,小盘股罗素2000收盘上涨1.8%。 创下历史新高,在整个交易时段表现出色,再加上周期性的金融和能源行业,这些行业严重依赖强劲的经济增长。


石油价格周三上涨,美国原油价格连续第七天上涨,此前一份行业报告显示库存进一步下降,投资者对大流行病恶化的状况不屑一顾。 两项基准均创下自2月以来的最高水平,当时中国的冠状病毒爆发开始在全球蔓延,数十亿人被封锁以防止目前正处于致命第二波的大流行。


美国11月的职位空缺略有下降,但在COVID-19感染猖狂的情况下,裁员人数不断增加,支持了从大流行中恢复劳动力市场的停滞的观点。 劳工部周二发布的《职位空缺和劳动力周转调查》(JOLTS)紧随上周五的消息之后,即经济在十二月份首次裁员是八个月以来。 劳动力市场增速放缓和公共卫生危机恶化可能会给拜登上任的政府施加压力,要求其提供更大的救济方案。
