    'You lose, I win!' Sun rages at Scott over medals snub

    Chinese juggernaut Sun Yang suffered another salty snub Tuesday after retaining his 200 metres freestyle world title on a controversial disqualification that sparked howls of protest. Briton Duncan Scott, who tied for the bronze medal, refused to shake Sun's hand on the podium -- as Australian Mack Horton had done after losing to the Chinese giant in the 400m final at the weekend. "If Sun can't respect our sport then why should I respect him?

    Tattoo twins Peaty and Dressel romp to world swim gold

    Britain's Adam Peaty completed a world treble in the men's 100 metres breaststroke Monday, while American Caeleb Dressel continued to feed his obsession for gold by romping to the 50m freestyle title. Peaty completed what was deemed a formality after smashing his own breaststroke world record at the weekend in Gwangju, South Korea, clocking 57.14 seconds to win gold -- although his forlorn expression on seeing his time told its own story. Unbeaten in five years over the distance in major competitions, Peaty turned inside world record pace but ran out of steam.

    Asia Gold: Consumers cash in on price rally, some switch to silver

    MUMBAI/BENGALURU (Reuters) - Consumers in leading Asian hubs continued to sell off physical gold this week, with some switching their holdings to silver, after a jump in prices that also attracted interest from investors betting further gains. "Demand has been muted, with most people selling off gold to take profit," said Brian Lan, managing director at Singapore dealer GoldSilver Central. In Hong Kong, gold was sold at a premium of $0.50-$1.20 an ounce, compared with a discount of 30 cents to a $1.20 premium last week.

    The Gold Rush Heats Up as Sub-Zero Yields Spread

    (Bloomberg) -- Gold, once mocked for its lack of yield and practical use, offers something the growing pile of negative-yielding bonds doesn’t -- inflation protection. Plus, it makes a great doorstop.As holders of promissory notes issued by sovereigns and companies watch the real value of their savings drain away amid central bankers’ efforts to kick-start growth, the allure of one of the oldest investment assets has become ever stronger. These five charts show just how popular gold has become -- and how closely it’s linked to the downward spiral in yields.The BreakthroughFor five years, resistance above $1,350 an ounce was too much for bullion to overcome. That changed in June, as it became clear the Federal Reserve was heading for a round of interest-rate cuts. Spot prices touched $1,453.09 on Friday, the highest level since May 2013 as global factory output slows and the market debates whether Chairman Jerome Powell will cut rates by as much as 50 basis points in July. The metal traded near $1,435, with silver climbing more than 8% this week.Really YieldingGold’s inflation-busting properties and low opportunity cost when interest rates drop have never been as important as now. The inverse relationship between bullion’s price and U.S. real rates expectations, as measured by the yield on five-year inflation-linked Treasuries, is the strongest it’s ever been. The correlation measured over 60 days hit -0.7 as bullion climbed.Below ZeroEven before accounting for the effects of inflation, the universe of bonds yielding less than nothing hit a record $13 trillion this month. Add in the corrosive effect of general price rises, and that number swells to $25 trillion. It could even top $30 trillion if the Fed cuts rates twice this year, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.Not ZeroOf course, gold doesn’t yield nothing -- it yields less than nothing. In fact, it’s probably the original negative-yielding asset. Storing gold in a vault costs money. Some firms in London, a city known as a gold-storage hub, charge private clients between 12 and 20 basis points of the value of the metal for a year’s storage in secure vaults. Big clients, like central banks, may be able to secure deals closer to 8 basis points. Similarly, holding metal in an exchange-traded fund costs money. Nevertheless, the amount of metal stored in high-security facilities registered with the London Bullion Market Association started rising in October and continued doing so through March, the last date for which data was available. That’s probably because even at -0.2%, it looks a better deal than many bonds.Not Done YetBut is the rally getting stretched? Maybe not. While hedge funds increased bullish bets on the precious metal, the aggregate long position on futures as a share of open interest is only about 36%. That’s still below the peaks of 2011, 2016 and 2017, suggesting there’s some room for prices to rise as money managers may allocate more to bullion. And while holdings in exchange-traded funds have risen this year, the total amount of bullion in funds still isn’t as high as it was at the end of 2012. And some, like Bridgewater Associates’ Ray Dalio, suggest the market may just be at the start of a period that will be very positive for gold.(Updates prices in the third paragraph.)\--With assistance from Garfield Reynolds.To contact the reporters on this story: Eddie van der Walt in London at evanderwalt@bloomberg.net;Ranjeetha Pakiam in Singapore at rpakiam@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Kristine Aquino at kaquino1@bloomberg.net, Lynn ThomassonFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

    Philomena was named by her religious father, the “Huzur” Secretary to the Maharaja of Mysore, after the saint to whom he was deeply devoted. A man of vision as well as brilliance, he and his wife, recognised their daughter’s unique gift early and put her under the tutelage of a musician-nun at a convent in Mysore (now Mysuru). Talking about those beginnings, Philomena Thumboochetty said, “I seemed to have taken to music like a fish to water.” So much so that, as a little girl, she was sent to study at the Calcutta School of Music, and took the fellowship examination offered by Trinity College London.

    Coach Jacco Verhaeren has set brutally difficult qualifying standards to make Australia's team for this month's world swimming championships team after a poor showing two years ago. Australia, a traditional powerhouse, had a disappointing campaign last time in Budapest, slumping to eighth on the medals table. Verhaeren's new selection policy means the Aussie team that competes in Gwangju is smaller than usual, but looks very strong.
