Gold has been strong over the last week on the back of a falling dollar. Normally, given the return of risk-appetite we have seen since the lows in the markets a week ago, you would expect gold to suffer. But general strength in commodities, together with the tumbling dollar has helped it higher. Spread Co offers a spread on spot gold of $1,666.1-$1,666.5.
Telco giant AT&T has been struggling to regain ground lost since the early summer after news that its planned acquisition of the US division of T-Mobile had been given a less than welcome reception from regulators. However, Deutsche Telecom – who is trying to sell the unit – is once again stressing that success here shouldn’t be seen as unobtainable. Current IG Markets price on AT&T is $28.87-$28.88.
