The price of gold continues to rise amid continuing uncertainty in US-China trade relations. On Saturday, Donald Trump noted that he had a good telephone conversation with Chinese leader Xi Jinping and the parties were able to significantly advance in trade negotiations. But the Chinese side said that during the conversation, Xi Jinping accused the United States of meddling in China’s internal affairs. Investors ambiguously evaluated the results of the negotiations and still prefer more reliable assets, fearing aggravation of relations between the countries before signing an interim foreign trade agreement. The details of this agreement remain unknown, which increases market uncertainty.
Today, in addition to geopolitical news, the focus of the market will be on macroeconomic statistics from the United States. The publication of data on basic orders for durable goods and new real estate sales for November is expected.
