solid gold ~ Emas Pertahankan Penurunan Karena Penguatan Dolar

solid gold ~ Emas mempertahankan kerugian setelah penurunan lima hari karena investor merenungkan kemungkinan suku bunga AS yang lebih tinggi, mengangkat dolar.

Logam untuk pengiriman segera turun sebanyak 0,4 persen menjadi $ 1,314.24 per ons, terendah sejak 2 September, dan diperdagangkan di $ 1,317.68 pada pukul 09:21 pagi di Singapura, menurut Bloomberg. Emas telah turun 2,3 persen dalam lima hari pada Selasa kemarin, sementara Indeks greenback naik 1,5 persen.

Setelah reli 25 persen pada semester pertama, kenaikan emas telah tersendat karena investor mengkaji prospek suku bunga AS yang lebih tinggi tahun ini, yang akan meredam daya tarik emas karena tidak menawarkan imbal hasil. Kemungkinan kenaikan pada bulan Desember sekarang lebih dari 50 persen dibandingkan dengan sekitar 36 persen pada awal Agustus. Kepemilikan di ETF berbasis logam turun untuk keempat kalinya dalam lima hari terakhir.(solid gold)

Gold held losses after a five-day drop as investors contemplate the possibility of higher U.S. interest rates, buoying the dollar.

The metal for immediate delivery fell as much as 0.4 percent to $1,314.24 an ounce, the lowest since Sept. 2, and traded at $1,317.68 at 9:21 a.m. in Singapore, according to Bloomberg generic pricing. The metal lost 2.3 percent in the five days to Tuesday, while a gauge of the greenback rose 1.5 percent.

After rallying 25 percent in the first half, gold�s advance has stumbled as investors weigh prospects for higher U.S. rates this year, which would damp the appeal of bullion as it doesn�t offer yields. Odds of a hike in December are now more than 50 percent compared with about 36 percent at the beginning of August, futures prices indicate. Holdings in exchange-traded funds backed by the metal dropped for a fourth time in five days.
