May 13, 2019, | SQUARED DIRECT – Despite heightened concerns over US-China relations, Gold prices traded mostly sideways last week with a slight bias to the upside. The price action revealed that investors showed little interest in the asset as a safe-haven investment. Instead, they preferred to hedge against stock market risk in the more-liquid Japanese Yen and US Treasuries.
