MTECHTIPS;-Gold Prices Drop as Beijing Underscores Commitment to Reform

MTECHTIPS-Gold prices fell Monday morning in Asia, a day after Chinese President Xi Jinping gave a speech about his government’s determination to engage in economic reforms amid an escalating trade war between Beijing and Washington. Gold futures for December delivery were down by 0.15% to $1,204.90 per troy ounce at 1:20 AM ET (05:20 GMT) on the Comex division of the New York Mercantile Exchange. Xi told UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres in Beijing that “China’s determination to fully deepen reforms will not change. We are willing to use practical actions to drive all parties to jointly adhere to trade liberalization and facilitation and build an open world economy.” The U.S. and China slapped 25% tariffs on $16 billion worth of products on each other in late August, rattling markets, while Reports suggested that the Trump administration was prepared to impose tariffs on an additional $200 billion of Chinese goods as soon as this week. In other news, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said on Sunday that his country’s relationship with China had returned to a “normal track”. The leader of the world’s third largest economy, Abe, is expected to visit the world’s second largest, China, at the end of October. Abe also said last Friday that the financial conversation with China was “extremely good” and both countries will keep on cooperating in macro-economic policies and measures
