Gold relatively flat on trade wars confusion25 Nov 2019
Gold price retreated at the start of the month when optimism built in markets around a phase one trade deal between US and China. Since then however, the two countries have not moved towards an agreement with clarity and conviction. Gold price has moved relatively sideways in the last two weeks and remains reactive to developments on the trade front.

The S&P 500 Index was unable to make last week its sixth consecutive week of gains as negative developments on the US-China trade front thwarted the bull run for US equities.

Short & Leveraged Exchange-Traded Products are only intended for investors who understand the risks involved in investing in a product with short and/or leveraged exposure and who intend to invest on a short-term basis. Any investment in short and/or leveraged products should be monitored on a regular basis (as frequently as daily) to ensure consistency with your investment strategy. You should understand that investments in short and/or leveraged exchange-traded products held for a period of longer than one day may not provide returns equivalent to the return from the relevant unleveraged investment multiplied by the relevant leverage factor. Potential losses in short and/or leveraged exchange-traded products may be magnified in comparison to investments that do not incorporate these strategies. Please refer to the section entitled “Risk Factors” in the relevant prospectus for further details of these and other risks associated with an investment in short and/or leveraged exchange-traded products. You should consult an independent investment adviser prior to making an investment in short and/or leveraged exchange-traded products in order to determine suitability to your circumstances.
