 الذهب يعود  إلى ما فوق 1500 دولار مع انعكاس منحنى العائد على السندات

The interest rate and recession caused stocks to fall on both sides of the Atlantic on Wednesday as investors rushed to preserve value by buying assets thought to be less risky. German, UK and US government bonds benefited the most while gold and silver jumped, reversing earlier declines as risk appetite eased yesterday. Market participants initially shouted the convergence between the administration in Washington and China when a trade war truce was agreed.

Swinging towards easing policy bias in major central banks is putting pressure on sovereign yields and interest rates in general. This helped push the US yield curve into a two-to-ten-year reversal, and the same happened to British securities. Low borrowing costs affect banks and the financial sector, which extends to other sectors and the entire economy. The yen and the Swiss franc also rose.

Yesterday, stocks rose after Washington announced it was delaying or eliminating tariffs on some Chinese products due to be implemented from Sept. 1.
