    Gold Reaches 4-Week Peak as Dollar Slips

    [​IMG]

    Gold climbed to its highest level in four weeks as the U.S. dollar fell from its 14-year high it previously touched. Spot gold rose 0.4 percent at $1,167.98 per ounce.

    U.S. gold futures were up 0.3 percent to $1,168.70 an ounce. The dollar index edged down 0.5 percent to 102.170. The relatively weaker dollar lifted gold prices higher. The precious metal is priced in dollars and also becomes cheaper for foreign buyers when the U.S. currency weakens. Gold imports to Turkey increased to 36.7 tonnes in December, higher from 4.65 tonnes during the same period in the previous year, according to data from the Istanbul bourse. Perth Mint's sales of gold products climbed in December as sales of silver more than halved.

    Holdings of the SPDR Gold Trust fell by nearly 14 percent since the U.S. presidential election in November. It was last unchanged at 813.87 tonnes.

    Bitcoin Slides Over 23% After Scaling Record-High Levels

    [​IMG]

    The bitcoin fell as much as 23% after bordering a historic high earlier in the trading session.

    According to Coindesk data, the cryptocurrency exchanged as low as $887.47, retreating from the day's peak price of $1, 153.02. The high for the session was close to the $1,165.89 hit on November 30, 2013. The price managed to regain footing from the low to around $973.89.

    Still, the digital currency managed to top its high on some cryptocurrency exchanges. In contrast to CoinDesk price index which takes into account a number of bitcoin exchanges, individual exchanges reported their own highest prices were surpassed. Among these was the BTC China.

    Experts say the rally surge in bitcoin prices created a 'volatile little bubble' which has now broken down. Despite this, industry experts say the long-term outlook for the e-currency continues to be positive. Bitcoin prices are anticipated to regain footing and steady close to the $850 to $1, 000 range depending on the conditions.

    Australia Building Approvals Climb 7.0% In November

    [​IMG]

    The total number of building approvals in Australia issued in November jumped a seasonally adjusted 7.0 percent on month in November, the Australian Bureau of Statistics said on Monday - coming in at 17,569 while rising for the first time in three months.

    The headline figure beat forecasts for an increase of 4.5 percent following the upwardly revised 11.8 percent contraction in October (originally -12.6 percent).

    On a yearly basis, approvals were down 4.8 percent - but that also topped expectations for a decline of 5.7 percent following the 24.9 percent decline in the previous month.

    Approvals issued for private sector houses fell 0.2 percent and has fallen in two straight months.

    Approvals for private sector dwellings excluding houses surged 18.5 percent in November after falling for three straight months.

    The value of total building approved rose 2.3 percent in November following a fall of 29.0 percent in the previous month.

    The value of residential building rose 5.6 percent after falling for three months, while the value of non-residential building fell 3.7 percent and has fallen for two months.

    Also on Monday: . The construction sector in Australia continued to contract in December, albeit at a slower pace, the latest survey from the Australian Industry Group showed with a Performance of Construction Index score of 47.0.

    That's up from 46.6 in November, although it remains beneath the boom-or-bust line of 50 that separates expansion from contraction.

    Among the individual components of the survey, activity, new orders and employment all contracted. "The lower level of new orders suggests we cannot expect a sustained turnaround over the first few months of 2017," said Ai Group head of policy Peter Burn in a statement. .

    The total number of job ads in Australia was down 1.9 percent on month in December after rising 1.7 percent in November, ANZ Bank said.

    Gold Prices Flat on U.S. Rate Hike Expectations

    [​IMG]

    Gold prices were under pressure early on Monday, after slipping from a one-month peak the previous week on prospects of further interest rate hikes, as investors focus on more outlooks from the U.S. Federal Reserve. Spot gold was stable at $1,173.06 per ounce. U.S. gold futures were flat at $1,173.80 per ounce.

    The dollar index inched up 0.1 percent at 102.27. The latest data showed that U.S. employment climbed less than expected in December however, a rebound in wages indicated sustained labor market momentum which sets the economy for robust growth and more interest rate hikes in 2017. Hedge funds and money managers trimmed their bullish position in COMEX gold contracts for the eighth consecutive week in the week to Jan. 3, according to the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) data.

    Gold demand in Asia picked up last week on wedding season purchases in India, as prices moved to a premium in the country for the first time in more than a month. Traders anticipate demand to strengthen as a result of the upcoming Chinese New Year.

    Alibaba Chairman Meets with Trump to Discuss U.S. Job Creation

    [​IMG]

    Jack Ma, the chairman of Chinese giant Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. met with U.S. President-elect Donald Trump to talk on how the online retailer could aid in generating one million new jobs in America.

    The e-commerce company said the posts would be created through Alibaba adding around one million small and medium-sized enterprises across its platforms. The additional commerce is estimated to add the matching number of employees.

    Other top executives from other firms have met with the incoming U.S. leader in his headquarters in New York with a pledge to create jobs. However, Ma's sit-down with Trump comes after Trump threatened to slap high tariffs on trade with China and accused the country of stealing job opportunities from Americans. Alibaba has also been penciled back on the U.S. Notorious Markets list, after it was deemed that the company did not put in enough effort to tackle counterfeits in its Taobao website.

    Alibaba is now attempting to grow a positive working tie with Trump as it looks to expand internationally.

    The company's shares advanced 0.9% and closed at $94.72.

    Fxwirepro: Singapore Dollar Marginally Lower in Early Hours of Asia, Bias Remains Neutral

    [​IMG]

    USD/SGD is currently trading around 1.4370 marks.

    It made intraday high at 1.4373 and low at 1.4355 levels.

    Intraday bias remains neutral for the moment.

    A daily close above 1.4361 will test key resistances at 1.4392, 1.4437, 1.4506, 1.4568, 1.4686 and 1.4851 levels respectively.

    Alternatively, a consistent close below 1.4361 will drag the parity down towards key supports at 1.4317/1.4269/1.4219/1.4150/1.4046/1.3972/1.3819/1.3775/1.3704/1.3646 levels respectively.

    Important to note here that 20D, 30D and 55D EMA heads up and confirms the bullish trend in a daily chart. We prefer to take long position in USD/SGD only above 1.4383, stop loss 1.4317 and target of 1.4500.

    U.S. Stock Closed Mixed Ahead of Trump Conference

    [​IMG]

    U.S. stocks finished mixed, as the dollar weakened against the yen while investors were cautious ahead of U.S. President-elect Donald Trump's news conference. The Nasdaq Composite hit an intraday high, extending its rally as healthcare stocks advanced for the sixth consecutive session.

    The Dow Jones industrial average edged down 0.2 percent to 19,855.53, the S&P 500 was little changed at 2,268.90 while the Nasdaq Composite climbed 0.4 percent to 5,551.82. Caution surrounded the financial markets as the elation regarding Trump's anticipated pro-growth policies faded with Congress holding hearings for his proposed cabinet members. Delta Air Lines Inc. is scheduled to begin the S&P 500 earnings season, with analysts predicting profits for firms in the index grew by 3.8 percent the last quarter.

    Seven of the 11 major S&P sectors gained, led by advances of 0.69 percent in industrials. However, the 0.66 percent rise of the financials gave the largest boost. Healthcare stocks was 0.44 percent higher while biotechs climbed 0.5 percent. The Russell 2000 rose by one percent to pull up its post-election advances back towards 15 percent. The measure gained as much as 20 percent in the months following Trump's victory.

    Gold Edged Higher After Trump Conference

    [​IMG]

    Gold inched higher to hold near 7-week peaks it hit in the previous session, while the dollar fell after Donald Trump gave some form of clarity regarding future fiscal policies during his first press conference as U.S. president-elect. U.S. gold futures were down 0.2 percent to $1,193.70 an ounce. Spot gold climbed 0.2 percent at $1,193.31 an ounce.

    Bullion hit a peak of $1,198.40, its best since Nov. 23. Trump's campaign calls for lower taxes and further infrastructure spending have boosted the dollar, along with a driving selloff in Treasuries, however, his protectionist remarks and the series of off-the-cuff Tweets kept many investors from adding to risky positions. Meanwhile, investors expect palladium to gain benefit from tax cuts and higher government spending in the major car markets of the U.S. and China to raise auto sales.

    Silver climbed 0.5 percent at $16.70, however, remained below Tuesday's four-week peak of $16.90. Platinum was down 0.4 percent to $974.50 from a previous two-month high at 982.60 while palladium fell 1.3 percent to $754.20 per ounce, slightly near Monday's five-week peak of $768.10.

    US court renews battle over iPhone apps monopoly

    [​IMG]

    Apple Inc. is facing a renewed battle claiming it attempted to dominate the market for iPhone applications between 2007 and 2013.

    On Thursday, a San Francisco-based appeals court in rekindled the planned class-action suit following a lower federal court judge rejected it. The panel stipulated the judge committed a mistake in stating the consumers hold insufficient standing to file a case as direct buyers of apps.

    A spokesperson for the tech giant refused to shed light on the court's verdict. Initially lodged in 2011, consumers argued Apple breached the US antitrust legislation by obligating iPhone apps to be sold at the App Store and restricting independent app developers from advertising the software outside the platform.

    Plaintiffs' lawyer Mark Rifkin said million of customers should manage to regain most of the company's 30% cut from sales in the app store.

    Although it has not yet secure a class-action status, Rifkin said they may attempt to expand the scope of the lawsuit to include those who have purchase iPhone apps to the present.

    JPMorgan Asset Management Fund Outperforms as it Kept Shorter-Maturity Securities

    [​IMG]

    JP Morgan's own $2.4 billion Global Bond Opportunities Fund has trimmed its average duration in U.S. securities to three years from more than five in July, and has leaped into the domestic debt of Russia and Brazil. Bond investors are facing some hurdles since the global-reflation trades that ignited following the November U.S. presidential election victory for a fiscal-stimulus proposal by Donald Trump.

    The firm is upbeat on the local-currency bonds of Russia and Brazil as their economies are expected to rebound, according to Stealey. The domestic debt issued by Russia returned 2.2 percent while Brazil returned 4.7 percent in the previous month as of Jan. 12, as shown by indexes compiled by Bloomberg. Brazil's 10-year notes offer a yield of nearly 11 percent while Russia's is at almost eight percent, in comparison with nearly 2.4 percent for similar-maturity U.S. debt.

    The fund's strategy includes the mix of both local currency and dollar-denominated emerging-market bonds which have been increased to 15 percent of the portfolio from 12 percent.

    High-Speed Traders Drive 80% of Bitcoin Trading

    [​IMG]

    Professional traders loaded with cutting-edge technology currently drive nearly 80 percent of bitcoin trading, resembling strategies done by some of the major players on Wall Street. Volumes followed by Bitcoinity.org have soared to a record high in January, which raises the chances for high-speed traders to gain profit.

    The market structure of the cryptocurrency provides arbitrage opportunities across multiple exchanges, zero transaction costs on Chinese venues, day and night trading, and co-location services which allow individuals to place their servers right next to the exchange. Chen Zhenguo, who founded China's biggest platform for facilitating bitcoin strategies, claimed he's generated annualized gains of 50 percent for his own account. The cryptocurrency's price fluctuations have impeded some high-speed companies, as the increasing dominance of trades raises the question of how long the opportunities will last.

    Bitcoin's current market value is around $13.5 billion, against $6.5 trillion for Chinese equities. The cryptocurrency climbed 0.1 percent to $833.92.
