However, gold has acted contrary to expectations in recent months, faltering amid inflation, an increasingly hawkish stance from the Fed and a surging dollar. Gold prices went down by more than 1.5% in September, trading at as little as $1,643 per ounce and reaching a two-year low. OANDA senior analyst Edward Moya…

Emerging Markets’ Central Banks Have Increased Gold Purchases

For the longest time, investors, corporations and countries have used gold as a store of value during times of economic upheaval. While other assets and traditional currencies such as the dollar are known to depreciate when the economy stagnates, gold mostly retains its value even as economic conditions deteriorate.

With global economic conditions stagnating in recent years and experts predicting that there will likely be a recession in late 2023 or early 2024, it seems that…

The U.S. Federal Reserve has been especially hawkish in recent months as economic conditions have deteriorated, increasing benchmark interest rates for more than three months consecutively to forestall economic inflation. However, these efforts have…

Indonesia Considers Three-Step Plan to Close Coal Plants

Indonesia recently introduced three options to shut down its coal-fired power plants in an effort to meet its net-zero emissions target. The lengthy lifespan of Indonesia’s coal plants, which generate most of the country’s power, are the main obstacle to meeting the nation’s emissions goal. To address this issue, the country has established a financing platform for its renewable energy projects, which includes the program to halt the operations of its coal-fired power plants. Indonesia has also appointed PT Sarana Multi Infrastruktur, a state-owned financing company, to manage the funds. Despite the lengthy process, experts are optimistic that stakeholders will…
