Gold scores a pop from historic oil outage
Monday, 16 September 2019 20:44 WIB | PRECIOUS METALS |GOLDEMASSILVER

Gold futures headed solidly higher on Monday after an attack on Saudi Arabian oil production sent oil prices skyrocketing and investors turning to haven assets, including bonds and precious metals.

December gold on Comex gained $9.70, or 0.7%, to $1,509.20 an ounce, after registering on Friday a weekly decline of 1.1%. Silver for December delivery added 32 cents, or 1.8%, to trade at $17.885 an ounce, following a weekly loss of 3%, according to FactSet data.

The gain for oil comes after Saudi oil production facilities on Saturday were hit by a drone attack according to Saudi Arabian officials, which knocked out 5.7 million barrels of daily production, representing some 5% of global production. The event, described by commodity experts as the largest-ever single disruption to crude output, has rattled markets because spikes in oil prices can hobble global economies. The kingdom has been racing to restore roughly one-third of the disrupted production.
