1. Gold In For Longest Monthly Losing Streak Since 2013
Gold inched lower in early Friday morning, as the dollar stayed firm on expectations of rising interest rates. Meanwhile, lingering China-U.S. tensions gave the dollar an added push and subdued the yellow metal which is now headed for its fifth straight monthly decline – the metal’s longest losing streak since early 2013.The greenback, which also tends to attract safe haven bids in times of market turmoil and political tensions, drew its latest swell of support after President Donald Trump commented that he is prepared to impose tariffs on $200 billion more in Chinese imports. It should be noted that gold prices are down about 2 percent so far this month.*
