Gold futures fall for the session, gain 0.4% for the week
Saturday, 16 November 2019 02:01 WIB | PRECIOUS METALS | Spot EmasEMASGOLD

Gold futures declined on Friday, as optimism that phase one of a U.S.-China trade deal will soon be reached, and strength in the U.S. stock market dulled haven demand for the metal.

For the week, however, gold tacked on 0.4%. "Despite this recent bout of counterintuitive losses, gold looks strong both technically and, more importantly, from a fundamental point of view," said Mark O'Byrne, research director at GoldCore.

"From a technical point of view, gold looks very bullish with a series of higher lows and higher highs and with the long term moving averages looking good," he said. "From a fundamental point of view, global demand is strong as seen with central bank becoming net buyers and strong retail investment demand as seen in very robust demand for gold [exchange-traded funds]."

December gold lost $4.90, or 0.3%, to settle at $1,468.50 an ounce.
