GOLD BOUNCES BACK ALONG WITH EURO  

Gold is recovering from recent losses along with the euro this morning. A policymaker from the European Central Bank hinted that Europe’s rescue fund could get a banking license, allowing easy access to cheap funding from the ECB. While just a small mention from one policymaker, it has been enough to snap a five-day losing streak for the euro.

Germany, which has long been the strong point in the eurozone, is starting to feel the heat from the rest of the eurozone, said Mike Jones of Bank of New Zealand. Jones said, “The economic weakness in Europe is spreading from the periphery to Germany. Even the engine of European growth is starting to lose steam, and that’s undermining European sentiment.”

The United Kingdom is also in a bad spot. Nick Parsons of National Australia Bank in London said that, by the end of the year, he expects an interest rate cut in the country and “more quantitative easing is going to be needed.” The U.K.’s economy shrank more than expected in the second quarter, showing that Britain has “deep-rooted economic problems,” Finance Minister George Osborne said.
