What a U.S. Rate Cut Could Mean for Gold Prices
June 11, 2019

Stocks surged last Friday following a U.S. jobs report that, to put it mildly, fell far below expectations. At first this might seem counterintuitive. Shouldn’t signs of a slowing economy act as a wet blanket on Wall Street?

Global Manufacturers Just Shrank for the First Time in Seven Years
June 4, 2019

Perhaps surprising no one, global manufacturers are now in contraction mode for the first time since 2012. That’s according to the most recent reading of the sector’s health, the purchasing manager’s index (PMI), which headed lower for a record 13th straight month in May. The PMI posted 49.8, down from 50.4 a month earlier. As a reminder, anything above 50.0 indicates expansion; anything below, contraction.

How to Limit Your Exposure to the U.S.-China Trade War
May 9, 2019

The U.S. economy is growing at one of the fastest rates in the developed world right now, and unemployment hit a nearly 50-year low of 3.6 percent in April.
