Gold prices rebounded on Tuesday, as US yields moved lower and the dollar eases against most major currencies. New that US trade representatives called off a trade meeting, as differences where too wide at this current juncture. Stock prices moved lower, which buoyed treasury prices and lowered yields paving the way for higher gold prices. Without a trade agreement President Trump said he would increase tariffs to 25% from the current levels of 10%.

US Officials Call of Trade Meeting

Officials from the United States Trade Representative’s office were set to meet with two Chinese vice ministers this week to try to resolve trade differences before the March 1 deadline, but the meeting was called off, according to CNBC. Should Beijing and Washington fail to agree on a permanent solution, President Donald Trump has said he will reinforce punitive tariffs on roughly half of all Chinese exports to the U.S. The issue with trade has reduced Chinese GDP to 6.4% year over year which is the lowest in more than a decade. Trade issues are also weighing on the United States which is taking some of the wind out of the US stock market. Traders where hoping for news of a trade agreement with China to lift stock prices back up to the all-time highs.
