Top Market Segment to Watch Out Today:
GOLD: Gold prices rose slightly on Tuesday but kept to a tight range seen this week as investors held off from making big bets ahead of a U.S. Federal Reserve meeting that is expected to result in an interest rate hike.
Pressure on gold eased slightly on Tuesday as the U.S. dollar edged lower. But the greenback stayed pinned near 20-year highs, while U.S. Treasury yields rose, ahead of an interest rate decision by the Fed.
US: Confidence among U.S. single-family homebuilders fell for the ninth straight month in September as soaring mortgage rates and persistently high prices for building materials made new housing less affordable for many first-time buyers.
The National Association of Home Builders/Wells Fargo Housing Market index dropped three points to 46 this month. Discounting the plunge during the spring of 2020 when the economy was reeling from the first wave of COVID-19, this was the lowest reading since May 2014. A reading below 50 indicates that more builders view conditions as poor rather than good.
Economists polled by Reuters had forecast the index at 47.
The Federal Reserve’s aggressive monetary policy tightening has had a significant impact on the housing market, compared to the labor market and consumer spending, where demand remains fairly strong.
Euro Zone: Britain’s low headline rate of corporation tax has failed to boost business investment, which lags behind that of all its major peers, according to a report on Tuesday which comes as the government prepares to reverse a planned rise.
Britain’s 19% corporation tax rate – the lowest in the Group of Seven (G7) large, rich nations – had been due to rise to 25% in 2023 under plans announced last year by former finance minister Rishi Sunak.
However, opposing the rise formed a major part of Liz Truss’s successful campaign to defeat Sunak in the contest to succeed Boris Johnson as Conservative Party leader and Britain’s prime minister.
New finance minister Kwasi Kwarteng is expected to confirm this in an emergency fiscal statement on Friday, where he gives more details about Truss’s plan to support the economy in the face of surging energy bills.
