Deforestation in Brazil, vote in Argentina endanger EU-Mercosur pact
Deforestation in Brazil, vote in Argentina endanger EU-Mercosur pact

Brazil's backsliding on Amazon conservation under right-wing President Jair Bolsonaro and a likely Peronist return to power in Argentina could delay or even derail ratification of an EU-Mercosur trade agreement that took two decades to negotiate. Deforestation has surged since Bolsonaro's election last year. Two former Brazilian environment ministers, Jose Sarney Filho and Izabella Teixeira, said Bolsonaro has rapidly undermined Brazil's hard-won reputation as a responsible food producer and a leader in world environmental forums.

Japan exports seen shrinking for 8th month in July, core inflation weak
Japan exports seen shrinking for 8th month in July, core inflation weak

Japan's exports likely fell for an eight straight month in July, a Reuters poll showed Friday, as a protracted U.S.-China trade war and weak global demand hurt shipments from the world's third-largest economy. Adding to the growing challenge for policymakers, the nation's core consumer inflation is also expected to stay at 2-year lows for the month, weighed down by softer prices of energy-related items, the poll showed. Exports in July were forecast to have shrunk 2.2% from a year earlier, which would extend a slump that began in December last year, but not as bad as a revised 6.6% decline in June.

Why Gold Looks Ready to Rally Long-Term
Why Gold Looks Ready to Rally Long-Term

Gold topped a six-year high Tuesday morning, with its spot price briefly topping $1,534, its highest level since April 2013. Gold can be challenging to value, which can make its future direction harder to predict. You could argue that gold's value is entirely derivative - whether it climbs or falls has less to do with any specific qualities that are intrinsic to the asset itself, and more to do with a series of external influences … among them, the strength of the U.S. dollar, the health of stocks, the level of interest rates, and, of course, investor sentiment.

The markets are down, but we're still up close to 10 percent for the year, so I still would say this is an ok time to dial back a little bit of that risk, because you're not in a full-fledged 20 percent correction, where that's when you don't want to be making reactionary moves," Beatty explained. So it's fair right now to make a little bit of an adjustment if you haven't.
