Gold Prices Fall In Asia As Dollar Gains Deter, Safe-Haven Demand Eases. 
Gold prices fell in Asia on Tuesday as investors noted a stronger dollar and less appetite for safe-haven plays weighed on sentiment and as physical demand in India for the holiday season has failed to lift the futures market. Overnight, gold prices held above $1300 on Monday shrugging off an uptick in the dollar and treasury yields as safe-haven demand remained steady amid ongoing geopolitical uncertainty and concerns over the pace of U.S. interest rate hikes. Ongoing tensions over Iran, however, limited downside momentum in the precious metal while concerns over the pace of interest rate hikes beyond the widely expected year-end December rate hike strengthened sentiment on gold prices. Gold prices rose more than 2% last week after a data showed inflation missed expectations, lessening the Federal Reserve’s case to adopt an aggressive tightening stance on monetary policy. Fed chair Janet Yellen on Sunday, however, reaffirmed the Federal Reserve’s commitment to raising rates.

OPEC compliance with oil output cut deal at 86 percent: IEA head. 
The Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) has a compliance rate with their output cut pledges of about 86 percent, Fatih Birol, the executive director of the International Energy Agency (IEA), said on Tuesday. "Their compliance is about 86 percent, higher than in the past... whether or not they will continue with this plan in November it's up to them," Birol told Reuters on the sidelines of the World Knowledge Forum in Seoul. "If they do so, we may see, sometime next year, a rebalancing of the markets, as we still see a significant amount of stock in the markets which is higher than historical averages." Asked about the conflict in Iraq between the government and separatist Kurds and the United States' decision to decertify its nuclear deal with Iran, Birol said it is premature to assess the impact of these geopolitical risks on oil markets. "It is too early to say how these geopolitical developments will continue and how much they will have an impact on oil prices," Birol said.
