Gold Extends Rise as Fed Ramps Up Monetary Stimulus Amid Coronavirus Outbreak
Monday, 23 March 2020 20:52 WIB | PRECIOUS METALS |EMASGOLD

Gold futures headed higher on Monday, extending gains after the Federal Reserve unveiled an aggressive round of additional stimulus, including virtually unlimited purchases of Treasurys and mortgage-backed securities.

Gold had initially gained ground as global stocks traded lower on continued worries over the tremendous economic hit expected from the global COVID-10 pandemic. Gold extended gains, however, as U.S. stock-index futures turned higher in the wake of the Fed move.

The precious yellow metal, however, has faced some friction as a haven asset, as cash-strapped investors have been forced at times to sell bullion amid the persistent global rout in financial markets that has knocked most markets into bear-market territory. A strengthening dollar also has weighed on the price of precious metals, as the cases of the infectious disease that was first identified in Asia in December accelerates.

Gold for April delivery on Comex rose 2.4% to $1,590 an ounce, after putting in a weekly decline for the most-active contract of 2.1%, according to FactSet data. May silver jumped 4.2% to $12.90 an ounce, after a weekly decline of 14.6%. Prices last Wednesday settled at the lowest since January 2009.
