Gold completed trading on Wednesday in the green zone, + 0.6%, having won back some of the positions lost at the beginning of the trading week. The quotes were restored by the dynamics of the main stock indices. The Reuters report on the possible postponement to December the signing of a foreign trade agreement between the United States and China had a negative impact on investor sentiment. The demand for defensive assets has grown, since any postponement of the date of signing may indicate that there are certain disagreements between the positions of official Beijing and Washington, which may ultimately lead to the breakdown of all previous agreements.
Today, the news on the course of trade negotiations between the USA and China will continue to have the strongest influence on the dynamics of financial markets, since there are no important events in the economic calendar. Amid a decrease in risk appetite, gold retains good opportunities for further recovery.
