The dollar edged up on Friday but was set for its biggest weekly fall since the start of June, as a sentiment boost from better-than-expected jobs data in the United States was tempered by surging coronavirus cases. The U.S. Labor Department said on Thursday that payrolls surged in June but the reaction in currencies was limited. Even after two months of job recovery from May, the U.S. economy has regained just over a third of an historic plunge of 20.787 million jobs lost in April. Against a basket of currencies, the dollar rose less than 0.1%, to 97.249 at 13:53 GMT. Friday saw its...

Gold Holds Drop on Vaccine Developments, Factory Data
Thursday, 2 July 2020 11:23 WIB | GOLD EMAS

Gold held a decline after positive coronavirus vaccine developments and better-than-expected U.S. manufacturing data lifted sentiment and damped demand for the haven asset. An early trial of an experimental shot from Pfizer Inc. and BioNtech SE showed it was safe, and prompted patients to produce antibodies. Separately, the Institute for Supply Management said its gauge jumped in June to the highest in more than a year, signaling the resumption of growth as lockdowns ended. Meanwhile, Federal Reserve officials showed no readiness at their June meeting to...

Thursday, 2 July 2020 08:42 WIB | DOLLAR

The dollar was on the defensive against more growth-sensitive currencies on Thursday, following upbeat U.S. and European economic data but renewed worries about the coronavirus blunted more aggressive risk taking. The market sentiment gained an additional boost from the news that a COVID-19 vaccine developed by German biotech firm BioNTech and U.S. pharmaceutical giant Pfizer has shown potential and was found to be well tolerated in early stage human trials. Sterling traded at $1.2477, flat in early Thursday trade but having gained 1.1% so far this week. The Australian dollar fetched...

Oil Edges Lower With Virus Fear Offset by U.S. Stockpiles Draw
Thursday, 2 July 2020 08:10 WIB | Minyak WTI Brent

Oil edged lower as the re-imposition of anti-virus measures in parts of the U.S. was partially offset by a bigger-than-expected draw in American crude stockpiles and plunging output from OPEC producers. Futures in New York traded near $40 a barrel dipped after rising 1.4% Wednesday as the Energy Information Administration reported U.S. inventories shrunk by 7.2 million barrels last week, the most this year. Sentiment was also aided by a survey showing OPEC output fell to the least since 1991 last month. The coronavirus continues to run rampant through the...
