GOLD - 10 June 2019


Fundamental Highlights

Gold prices fell during early morning session by more than 1% as equities rose on strong Chinese data, and the agreement between the US and Mexico. China's overall trade surplus in May was significantly more than expected despite fears of an ongoing Sino-US trade dispute, official data showed this morning. Meanwhile, the US and Mexico struck a migration deal late last week to avert a tariff war, after US President Donald Trump previously threatened to slap a 5% import tariffs on all Mexican goods this week if Mexico did not commit to tightening its borders. On the other hand, US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said over the weekend that the US will go forward with its plan to impose more tariffs if discussions with China do not go well.
