    Goldman Says Case to Diversify With Gold ‘as Strong as Ever’

    (Bloomberg) -- Goldman Sachs Group Inc. said investors should diversify their long-term bond holdings with gold, citing “fear-driven demand” for the precious metal.“Gold cannot fully replace government bonds in a portfolio, but the case to reallocate a portion of normal bond exposure to gold is as strong as ever,” Goldman analysts including Sabine Schels said in a note Friday. “We still see upside in gold as late cycle concerns and heightened political uncertainty will likely support investment demand” for bullion as a defensive asset.The precious metal climbed to a six-year high in September as the Federal Reserve cut borrowing costs and the total pile of debt yielding less than zero climbed to a record $17 trillion, boosting the appeal of non-interest bearing gold.Hedge funds and other large speculators boosted their bullish bets on the precious metal by 8.9% in the week ended Dec. 3, government data showed Friday. That’s the biggest gain since late September.Gold has fallen more than 6% from the peak to close at $1,460.17 in the spot market Friday.While Goldman said the correction on bullion prices has further room to run, the bank is still sticking to its forecast prices will climb to $1,600 over the next year.(Adds hedge fund position in fourth paragraph.)\--With assistance from Marvin G.

    Gold Rally Foiled Again as Payrolls Torpedo Weekly Gain

    (Bloomberg) -- Just when it looked like gold’s rally had gotten back on track, the U.S. payrolls report came along.The number of jobs added to the economy jumped 266,000 last month, the most since January, according to a government report Friday that topped all estimates in a Bloomberg survey calling for 180,000 jobs.Gold has struggled to sustain recent rallies as resilient U.S. economic data and bets on progress toward a U.S.-China trade deal limit demand for the metal as a haven. That weakens the case for more cuts on U.S. borrowing costs, further damping the appeal of the non-interest-bearing precious metal. Prices are down more than 6% from a six-year high reached in September.The jobs report “is a blow-away number: It means there will be no more interest-rate cut, which is bearish for gold,” says Phil Streible, senior market strategist at RJO Futures.Bullion futures for February delivery fell 1.2% to settle at $1,465.10 an ounce at 1:30 p.m. on the Comex in New York. Prices slipped 0.5% for the week.The jobless rate dipped to 3.5%, matching the lowest since 1969. Average hourly earnings climbed 3.1% from a year earlier, exceeding projections, and the prior month was revised higher.Earlier Friday, equities rose after China said it’s in the process of waiving retaliatory tariffs on imports of U.S. pork and soy by domestic companies. That’s a procedural step that may also signal a broader trade agreement with the U.S. is drawing closer.“China is waiving some tariffs, which means we’re close to an agreement,” also weighing on gold, Streible said.To contact the reporter on this story: Yvonne Yue Li in New York at yli1490@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Luzi Ann Javier at ljavier@bloomberg.net, Joe Richter, Christine BuurmaFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.
