◆ The ECB moved further into negative rates at -0.5% and will electronically create of €20 billion euros every month to buy bonds; gold rose from €1,362/oz to €1,394/oz prior to giving back gains

◆ Gold has had back to back gains after rising on Wednesday and yesterday but it shed the ECB gains later in the session on fresh hints of progress in the U.S.-China trade dispute

◆ The ECB ‘bazooka’ has increased expectations for a dovish stance from the U.S. central bank at its meeting next week and the Fed is increasingly expected to also revert to quantitative easing and move to negative rates as demanded by President Trump who called Fed officials “boneheads” this week

◆ Palladium sets all-time high on supply angst; record high of $1,621.55/oz; Gold and silver will likely also reach record highs in the coming months
