Fundamentals

  • Atlanta US Federal Reserve President Raphael Bostic said on Friday he is hopeful that the momentum of the US economy will carry it through the next wave of the pandemic, and said he remains open to accelerating the pace of the central bank's bond taper.

  • Japan's retail sales rose for the first time in three months in October, though less than expected, and the underlying private consumption trend pointed to persistent strains on a fragile economic recovery despite an easing of COVID-19 curbs.

  • Physical gold demand picked up in major Asian hubs last week helped by a retreat in prices, with dealers in India preparing for a likely spurt in buying as the wedding season gathers pace.
