Gold spiked to new highs amidst reports that the president of the United States, Donald Trump was considering postponing the elections. An idea that was quickly dismissed by the US congress.

The US Gross Domestic Product has plunged by 32.9% annualized, which surprisingly is better than expected but is still the worst in history. The Federal Reserve also announced that some special lending schemes will be extended through year-end – showing the bank’s commitment to non-stop support towards reviving the economy.

Republicans and Democrats were at odds over injecting further stimulus packages – especially the all-important federal unemployment benefits. Depressed US bond-yields – regardless of YCC – have also been weighing on the dollar.

The novel Coronavirus statistics remains worrying, with daily deaths rising well above 1,100. Hopes for a vaccine remains alive with Moderna  kicking off its Phase 3 trial, racing against AstraZeneca and the University of Oxford.
