Gold prices experienced a slight dip on Monday, due to a cocktail of bearish factors, notably a slightly firmer U.S. dollar index. The relationship between gold and the dollar is historically inverse; as the dollar strengthens, gold, priced in dollars, becomes more expensive for holders of other currencies, potentially dampening demand. This unanticipated slip in gold price comes ahead of anticipated U.S. inflation data and forthcoming comments from Federal Reserve officials. These events, as always, are highly scrutinized as they offer valuable insights into the central bank’s future interest ..read more

U.S. stock indices are currently dancing on a tightrope, balancing between optimism and fear. While there are signs of growth and recovery, external factors, such as geopolitical tensions and domestic economic concerns, are acting as counterweights.

The S&P 500, often considered a broad representation of the U.S. stock market, experienced a decline of 0.5%. In contrast, the Dow Jones Industrial Average, known for its blue-chip status, managed to eke out a slight edge upwards by 0.1%. The tech-he ..read more

The price of oil was experiencing an upward trend this Tuesday, bouncing back from a weak beginning to the week.

This action followed a court decision from the International Chamber of Commerce that was in favor of Baghdad in a case against Turkey, which argued that the country should not have allowed the supply of oil from Kurdistan to Ceyhan without the explicit conse ..read more

Friday brought another rise in Oil prices with a gain of around 4%, as record high prices were seen in US Gasoline. Investors are still rightly concerned that supplies will tighten if the EU does indeed go ahead and ban Russian imports. This was the third consecutive weekly increase in Oil prices, and also the highest close since late March. Brent dropped and it’s been a while, around 2 or 3 weeks since the highs. The volatility in oil prices is due to concerns that an EU ban on Russian oil might reduce supplies, but also there are still fears of a new wave of COVID-19 in China and other areas ..read more
