Virus aid: Where things stand in high-level Washington talks

After more than a week's worth of meetings, at least some clarity is emerging in the bipartisan Washington talks on a huge COVID-19 response bill. An exchange of offers Tuesday and a meeting devoted to the U.S. Postal Service on Wednesday indicates a long slog remains, but the White House is offering some movement in House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's direction on aid to states and local governments and unemployment insurance benefits. Pelosi is staking out a hard line on extending a $600-per-week supplemental pandemic federal jobless benefit, which lapsed last week.

Trump vs. TikTok: An Opening Salvo against Chinese Tech

Aboard Air Force One on Friday, President Trump told reporters, "As far as TikTok is concerned, we're banning them from the United States." But as events progressed, the White House seemed to be offering the popular video-sharing app's owners an off-ramp. They're now in talks with Microsoft, which wants to acquire the app, and Trump has set a September 15 deadline for the companies to reach an agreement. (He also says any deal should include a payment to the Treasury.) Otherwise, he says, the U.S. government will ban the app.Before last weekend's news, there already was bipartisan agreement around doing something about TikTok. Over the weekend, Senator Chuck Schumer forcefully denounced...

Stunned by gold's record rise? There's more to come, analysts say

The speed at which gold has broken above $2,000 an ounce has left some in the market fearing a correction, but many analysts predict more gains as the coronavirus crisis spurs investors to buy into bullion's relative safety. Taking out the totemic $2,000 barrier means investors must change their reference points, said Frederic Panizzutti at Swiss precious metals dealers MKS. A hoarding spree has fuelled the rally, with investors adding 922 tonnes of gold worth $60 billion at current prices to their stockpiles in exchange-traded funds this year, according to the World Gold Council.

U.S. testing for the coronavirus is dropping even as infections remain high and the death toll rises by more than 1,000 a day, a worrisome trend that officials attribute largely to Americans getting discouraged over having to wait hours to get a test and days or weeks to find out the results. An Associated Press analysis found that the number of tests per day slid 3.6% over the past two weeks to 750,000, with the count falling in 22 states. "There's a sense of desperation that we need to do something else," said Dr. Ashish Jha, director of Harvard's Global Health Institute.
