  • Gold hits two-week high as Chinese rate cut seen spurring buying

    Gold rose to its highest level in nearly two weeks on Monday, shrugging off the dollar’s multi-year high after an interest rate cut in Beijing lifted demand in China, the world’s second-largest gold market. Weakness in Chinese manufacturing, aggravated by high real borrowing costs and weak demand, appears to have driven the central bank to accelerate the pace of monetary easing. "Anything that helps stimulate consumer spending is gold favourable because there are more chances of higher purchases of consumer jewellery and gold bars," Mitsubishi Corp strategist Jonathan Butler said. "We do not rule out another 25-basis-point rate cut alongside further RRR (reserve requirement ratio) easing in the next three to six months if oil prices stabilise and food inflation remains under wraps," Mizuho Bank said in a note.

    Samsung Electronics introduced a flagship smartphone with a curved screen and mobile-payment system, seeking to spark sales after a painful year that saw its leadership eroded by Apple and Chinese upstarts like Xiaomi. The new Galaxy S6 and its double curved-screen variant the Galaxy S6 Edge, released on Sunday on the sidelines of an annual trade show here, outlines Samsung’s latest strategy for finding its footing: take on Apple’s iPhone head on, while bringing even more of the manufacturing process under its control. In the US, Samsung said it would be offered by all the major carriers, including Verizon Wireless, AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint.
