Asian shares ticked higher on Wednesday as more upbeat signals from Sino-U.S. trade talks fanned hopes of an imminent end to tariff hostilities, which helped offset concerns about a slowing U.S. economy. Nikkei is currently trading at 23,438, up 64.45 points by 0.28%.

Precious Metals

Gold for February delivery GCG20, +0.16%, the most active contract on Comex, fell $6.60, or 0.4%, to end Wednesday at $1,460.80 an ounce, as buoyant demand for U.S. stocks ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday kept pressure on the precious metal.

Base Metals

The three-month nickel price on the London Metal Exchange was lower at the close of trading on Wednesday November 27, falling by a little more than 1% on thin turnover, while strength in the US economy did little to boost risk-off sentiment toward the base metals complex.

Crude Oil

Oil prices slipped Wednesday after official U.S. inventory data posted an unexpected rise in the latest week but remain near their highest levels in about eight weeks.
