Top Market Segment to Watch Out Today:
GOLD: Gold was up on Monday morning in Asia as some countries from the Group of Seven (G-7) plan to ban bullion imports from Russia, which might tighten supplies.
Gold futures were up 0.37% to $1,837.05 by 11:59 PM ET (3:59 AM GMT). The dollar, which normally moves inversely to gold, on Monday morning.
US: U.S. President Joe Biden told allies “We have to stay together” against Russia on Sunday as G7 leaders gathered for a summit dominated by war in Ukraine and its impact on food and energy supplies and the global economy.
At the start of the meeting in the Bavarian Alps, four of the Group of Seven rich nations moved to ban imports of Russian gold to tighten the sanctions squeeze on Moscow and cut off its means of financing the invasion of Ukraine.
But it was not clear whether there was G7 consensus on the plan, with European Council President Charles Michel saying the issue would need to be handled carefully and discussed further.
Britain, the United States, Japan and Canada agreed the ban on new Russian gold imports, the British government said on Sunday.
Eurozone: British Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s government will press ahead on Monday with legislation to scrap rules on post-Brexit trade with Northern Ireland, setting up further clashes with the European Union.
The legislation, which would unilaterally replace parts of the post-Brexit deal that was agreed in 2020 by Britain and the EU, is due to be sent back to parliament’s lower house for a so-called second reading.
Foreign minister Liz Truss said London’s priority was to protect a 1998 peace deal that Ireland, the United States and other countries have said could be put at risk by replacing parts of the Northern Ireland Protocol.
“This legislation will fix the problems the Protocol has created, ensuring that goods can flow freely within the UK, while avoiding a hard border and safeguarding the EU Single Market,” Truss said in a statement on Sunday.
