The U.S. House of Representatives voted Thursday to limit President Donald Trumps authority to strike Iran, a mostly symbolic move. Investors turn their focus to Americas monthly nonfarm jobs report due Friday. On Thursday, filings for...

Oil edges higher after previous day's plunge
Thursday, 9 January 2020 20:44 WIB | Minyak WTI Minyak Mentah Minyak Brent

Oil prices edged higher on Thursday, clawing back some of the sharp losses made in the previous session on the back of easing fears of an escalation in the conflict between the United States and Iran and swelling U.S. crude stocks.

Gold dropped for a second day as the U.S. and Iran stepped back from a deeper military conflict, blunting the appeal of haven assets.

Thursday, 9 January 2020 15:56 WIB | Euro Yen Safe Haven Currency DOLLAR

Safe-haven currencies such as the Japanese yen retreated on Thursday as the United States and Iran backed away from further conflict, with markets flipping back to a more risk-taking approach on hopes of a U.S.-China trade deal.

The dollar, also seen as a safe choice to park money in times...
