Goldman backs commodities as trade war fury now met with shrugs
Published: 21 Sep 18
Commodity bull Goldman Sachs Group says raw materials are poised to gain into the end of the year as investors have now become used to trade-war tensions, growth in top economies remains strong, and consumers who’d put off purchases in recent months start buying again. Copper jumped. “This week the trade war was escalated and markets shrugged it off with copper rallying,” analysts including Jeffrey Currie said in a note received on Friday and dated Sept. 20. “The reason is the market has already factored in an extended standoff between the US and China.”

After falling for five straight months, the longest slump since 2013, gold is showing resilience, holding near $1 200 an ounce since late August and registering a small gain so far in September. The metal is getting support from signs of a sputtering rally in the greenback and indications – albeit tentative – of easing U.S. inflation pressures that could slow the Federal Reserve’s hand in raising interest rates beyond this month.
Africa needs to invest in fuel cell technology Africa needs to invest in fuel cell technology
Published: 21 Sep 18
Countries are recognising the value and future impact that fuel cells and hydrogen technologies will provide. Now is the time for Africa to join this global movement and invest in the fuel cell future, says Washington-based global advocacy organisation Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Energy Association communications and outreach director Jennifer Gangi. “Fuel cells generate electricity using an electrochemical reaction – not combustion. Aside from being efficient, reliable and quiet, fuel cells are rugged, so they can be sited in harsh terrain, extreme climates and rural areas without infrastructure to generate power for buildings, communication and mission critical equipment.”
