The USD/JPY is trading close to the 110.00 handle in early Wednesday action following Tuesday's drop-and-bounce as broader markets roiled following a notable ramp-up in the trade war rhetoric between the US and China. Another round of tariffs from the US targeting $200 billion more in Chinese goods is expected to make its way into headlines soon, pending a write up by the US Treasury Department, and market risk appetite evaporated yesterday as traders balk at the prospect of US President Donald Trump bringing a trade war one step closer. The Bank of Japan (BoJ) released their latest...

Wednesday, 13 June 2018 07:56 WIB | DOLLAR Dolar AS

The dollar approached a three-week high against the yen and stood tall against the euro on Wednesday ahead of the Federal Reserve's policy meeting, which could give clues on how many more rate hikes might come out of the U.S. this year.

Wednesday, 13 June 2018 07:34 WIB | Minyak WTI Brent Oil,

The American Petroleum Institute was said to report nationwide crude inventories rose by 833,000 barrels last week. Russia is said to propose that OPEC and its allies be allowed to return production to October 2016 levels, with the producers proportionally sharing out a 1.8 million barrel-a-day...

Gold falls below $1,300 to finish at one-week low
Wednesday, 13 June 2018 01:45 WIB | GOLD EMAS

Gold prices fell below $1,300 an ounce on Tuesday, as an agreement between the U.S. and North Korea aimed at denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula muted demand for the haven metal, ahead of an expected interest-rate hike by the Federal Reserve. The move came as a report showed U.S. consumer inflation is trending higher, a signal that markets believe will push the Federal Reserve into raising interest rates this week and possibly again later this year. August gold fell $3.80, or 0.2%, to settle at $1,299.40 an ounce, after tapping a high near $1,305 during the session. Source : Marketwatch
