Gold & Oil prices continue to mount amidst US-China’s trade ceasefire

December 04, 2018 (MLN): Gold prices went up on Tuesday, after hitting a more than one-month high earlier in the session, as the dollar weakened after the United States and China agreed to a temporary trade ceasefire for at least 90 days.

Spot gold climbed 0.4 percent to $1,235.78 per ounce at 0400 GMT. Prices touched a peak of $1,236.01 earlier in the session, their highest since November 02, whereas U.S. gold futures were little changed at $1,240.3 per ounce.

Oil prices also scaled upwards on Tuesday, attaining most of the gains from the expected OPEC-led supply cuts and a mandated reduction in Canadian output.

U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures were at $53.33 per barrel at 0604 GMT, up 48 cents, or 0.7 percent, from their last close, while International Brent crude oil futures were up 51 cents, or 0.8 percent, at $62.20 per barrel.
