Gold near flat pre-Christmas; fiscal cliff in focus  NEW YORK/LONDON: Gold was barely changed in Monday's pre-Christmas session, with futures ending down a notch amid light volume and uncertainty over America's fiscal condition in the coming year.   Most commodities, including oil and copper, ended lower as the US Congress drifted without a solution toward the new year after a Republican plan to avert debilitating tax hikes and spending cuts failed to gain ground last week.   The dollar, which often moves in the opposite direction of commodities, edged higher by 2:00 p.m. EST (1900 GMT), erasing losses in the euro.   "Given the condition of other markets and the relative strength of the dollar, gold is doing pretty fine," said James Dailey, portfolio manager at TEAM Financial Asset Management in Pennsylvania.   QUIET MARKET The spot price of gold stood at $1,656.99 an ounce, versus late Friday's level of $1,656.61.   The spot price could test support at $1,631, as it may have completed a rebound from a ...

CBOT soybeans rise on short-covering ahead of holiday  CHICAGO: Soybean futures on the Chicago Board of Trade rose for a second trading day Monday in a holiday-shortened session, rebounding from last week's one-month low on technical buying and short-covering, traders said.   * US markets will be closed on Tuesday in observance of the Christmas holiday, with electronic and open-outcry trade set to resume Wednesday at 9:30 a.m. CST (1530 GMT).   * USDA delayed the release of its weekly report on US grain export inspections until ...
Soybeans, corn edge higher, but set for big weekly drops  SYDNEY: US soybeans climbed on Friday as technical buying drove a rebound from sharp losses in the previous session, but they remain on course for their biggest weekly drop in three months.   Corn edged higher after hitting a near six-month low on Thursday, but is on track to record its largest weekly loss since the week ending September 23.   Wheat firmed, having marked a near-six-month low on Thursday.   Chicago Board Of Trade January soybeans rose 0.94 percent to ...
Argentina soy prices hit one-month low on CBOT losses  BUENOS AIRES: Argentina's closing soy prices and trends on Thursday: * Soy prices fell by at least 3 percent to end at 1,850 pesos ($378) per tonne in Rosario, down from Wednesday's unofficial price of 1,910-1,950 pesos.

Gold below $1,650/oz, down 1.1pc on fund selling  NEW YORK: Gold plunged below $1,650 an ounce on Thursday, down more than 1 percent, and to its lowest since August as heavy liquidation by hedge funds and signs of an improving US economy triggered selling.   The metal broke below its 200-day moving average, which it had held for four months, as safe-haven bidding faded following a government report that showed the US economy grew at a faster-than-expected 3.1 percent annual rate in the third quarter.   Silver ...
