Nach Kursrückgang: Goldhändler melden Kundenansturm

Hierzu ein aktueller Bericht auf Goldreporter.de:

Goldhändler melden Kundenansturm nach Kursrückgang

Die deutschen Edelmetallhändler melden einen starken Anstieg der Nachfrage nach Münzen und Barren, nachdem die Kurse von Gold und Silber deutlich nachgegeben haben..




US-Arbeitsmarktdaten verfehlen Erwartungen, Chancen für eine Zinserhöhung fallen erneut zurück

Die traditionelle Muppet Show geht weiter:

Payrolls Rise 156K, Missing Expectations, Unemployment Rate Rises To 5.0%




Tyler Durden's picture
With Wall Street all bulled up on the economy, expecting a print of 175K while the whipser number was decidedly higher, and closer to 200K thanks to Goldman's optimism, moments ago the BLS reported that in September the US created only 156K jobs, missing expectations, and down from the upward revised 167K in August, leaving the question of whether the Fed will hike imminently, unanswered. 

However, offsetting the September miss, last month's disappointing print of 151K was revised to 167K. At the same time, the change in total nonfarm payroll employment for July was revised down from +275,000 to +252,000. With these revisions, employment  gains in July and August combined were 7,000 less than previously reported. Over the past 3 months, job gains have averaged 192,000 per month. 
The household survey employment number of 151.968MM was 354K bigger than last month, and pushed the annual increase higher by 2.0%, the biggest since March 2016..


Gold Leads, Bonds Bleed As Jobs Miss Sends Rate-Hike Odds Tumbling




Tyler Durden's picture
The highest unemployment rate since April sent rate hike odds for November tumbling from almost 30 to around 15%. The kneejerk in stocks faded, bond yields surged, gold is leading the post-payrolls run...
Nov rate hike odds are tumbling but Dec is marginally higher..

Part-Time Jobs Soar By 430,000 As Multiple Jobholders Surge To August 2008 Levels




Tyler Durden's picture
While today's headline jobs print was somewhat disappointing, with the Establishment Survey missing the expected print of 175K, and growing by 156K, it was offset by a far higher 354K jump in the household survey which offset last month's weakness. But while the quantitative headline aspect is open to interpretation, the qualitative component of the September jobs print was downright ugly for two key reasons.
First, looking at the composition of jobs, full-time jobs declined by 5,000 to 142,296K while part-time jobs soared by 430,000...
... the biggest monthly jump since February..

US-Arbeitsmarktdaten: "The Most Important Ever" Payrolls Preview (Again)

Zur Einstimmung auf das wichtige Ereignis um 14:30 Uhr MEZ:

"The Most Important Ever" Payrolls Preview (Again)

The distribution of guesses for tomorrow's "most important payrolls print ever" or at least until next month, skews modestly to the upside after the biggest spike in ISM employment ever this week jarred some economists to become more optimistic, and side with Goldman Sachs expecting a Fed-inspiring drop in the unemployment rate, rise in average hourly earnings, and better than expected payrolls of 190K. As a result, while consensus expects a NFP rebound from 151K to 172K, the whisper number is around 200k. Anything above this would send December rate hike odds surging to the all important 70% or above, bond yields spiking and equities at the mercy of whichever way the risk parity machines were calibrated tomorrow..

Chile's Codelco delays $2.25 billion in investments on copper prices slump

Chile’s Codelco, the world's top copper miner, has once again made drastic changes to its ambitious five-year investment plan as falling copper prices continue to dry up the company’s earnings.

The state-owned miner, which faces what its chief executive Nelson Pizarro recently called its “worst crisis ever” since created in 1976, has decided to reduce its investment budget by $2.25 billion, local news site El Pulso reports (in Spanish)..

Goldcorp, Mexiko: Einigung mit Lieferanten für Peñasquito-Mine in Reichweite

Hierzu ein aktueller Bericht auf Bloomberg:

Talks to resolve Goldcorp Mexico mine blockade under way: official

By Noe Torres and Susan Taylor | MEXICO CITY/TORONTO

Negotiations are under way to resolve a week-long blockade at Goldcorp Inc's suspended Peñasquito gold mine in Mexico, a government mediator said on Wednesday.

Goldcorp, the world's No. 3 gold miner by market value, said on Monday that it shut mine operations on safety concerns from the blockade by a trucking contractor concerned about losing business due to mine efficiencies.

Talks began Tuesday night and another meeting was scheduled for Wednesday, said Julio Cesar Chavez, a Zacatecas government official and mediator in talks between Goldcorp and the trucking contractor and farmers, who have joined in the protests against Goldcorp.

"An agreement with the land owners and a trade agreement with the truckers is pending today," he said in an interview with Reuters.

Vancouver-based Goldcorp was not immediately available for comment.

There are 420 police officers at the site and they have cleared three entrances to the mine, Chavez said. One truck brought food into the mine yesterday, and protesters are now being asked to allow another truck to enter with water, he said.

In a meeting Tuesday night, truckers and a committee representing farmers asked Goldcorp to withdraw lawsuits against protesters, said Felipe Pinedo, one of the protest leaders.

Protesters are demanding jobs and payment for environmental damages and water used by the mine, Pinedo has said.

In late August, Reuters reported on a long-running leak of contaminated water, which had not been disclosed to the public, at the mine, Mexico's biggest gold deposit.

Goldcorp said it has about 750 people at the northern Mexico mine and expects to produce between 520,000 and 580,000 ounces of gold this year, equal to around 19 percent of its total forecast output of 2.8 million to 3.1 million ounces.

A contingency plan was in place that would allow mining and processing to be restarted immediately once the dispute was resolved, Goldcorp said. It did not expect the shutdown to impact 2016 production or cost estimates.

Kohle: China kommt mit dem Abbau von Überkapazitäten voran

Hierzu ein aktueller Bericht auf Mining.com:

China to reach target in cutting coal overcapacity by year-end

China’s effort to cut surplus capacity in the coal industry and, at the same time, manage pollution in most of its major cities, are paying off earlier than anticipated, with the world’s largest producer of the commodity anticipating it will reach its targets by year-end, which is earlier than planned.

In an interview with Bloomberg, Xu Shaoshi, chairman of the National Development and Reform Commission, said reducing overcapacity in the steel sector is also likely to surpass the nation’s annual goal.

By the end of August this year, coal production had fallen to 2.17 billion tons, down 10.2% from the same period in 2015. What’s more, according to the officer, China has begun importing more coal..

NexGen Energy drills 53 m of 5.37% U3O8 at Rook I

NEXGEN ASSAYS AT ARROW RETURN HOLES WITH 5 CONTINUOUS GTS GREATER THAN 100 INSIDE AND OUTSIDE THE A2 HIGH GRADE DOMAIN

NexGen Energy Ltd. has released assay results for six holes from its summer drilling program on the 100-per-cent-owned Rook I property, Athabasca basin, Saskatchewan.

At Arrow, holes drilled from both northwest to southeast (original) and southeast to northwest (scissor) directions have encountered significant high grade uranium mineralization within and outside the A2 High Grade Domain.

Highlighting this batch of results, hole AR-16-92c3 intersected two continuous intervals with grade x thicknesses ("GT" as %U3O8 x meters) of 144 and 115 that pierced 30 m below the A2 High Grade Domain. These two intervals were separated by 4 meters of core length in the hole. In addition, scissor holes AR-16-93c2 intersected a continuous GT of 279 in the Sub-Zone near the top of the A2 High Grade Domain, AR-16-91c4 returned a continuous GT of 215, and AR-16-93c1 returned a continuous GT of 163.

In the new A1 discovery area, scissor holes AR-16-91c4 and -93c2 both intersected significant intervals of uranium mineralization..

Desperate uranium miners switch to survival mode despite nuclear rebound

* Miners close pits, sell assets to reduce debt


By Geert De Clercq

LONDON, Oct 3 (Reuters) - The nuclear industry is gradually recovering from its post-Fukushima slump, but excess capacity keeps uranium prices at record lows, forcing mining companies to mothball mines, slice costs and cut debt as they struggle to survive..
