A Shingled-Style Home in Southampton, New York, With Private Beach Access

Tuesday 13:37 GMT

Aside from having deeded access to a private ocean beach a few doors away, this 1.9-acre property in Southampton, New York, backs up to preserved parkland offering quiet and privacy with long and lovely views.

Located within the historic Murray Compound in the village of Southampton, the 6,500-square-foot home was built in 2006 and designed by local architect John Laffey. “After tearing down the original structure, the owners built a new home in the classic Southampton shingled style but with modern amenities and current building standards,” said Pat Petrillo at Sotheby’s International Realty.

Stronger Dollar, Higher Treasury Yields Weigh on Gold

Today 03:22 GMT

Some investors expect robust economic growth to lead to a quicker-than-expected pace of interest-rate increases by the Federal Reserve, potentially weighing on gold prices.

A weaker dollar has helped push prices near their highest level since August 2016 recently, as a weaker U.S. currency makes gold and other dollar-denominated commodities cheaper for overseas buyers. However, on Tuesday, the WSJ Dollar Index, which tracks the dollar against a basket of 16 other currencies, climbed 0.5% and was on track for a third straight day of gains after closing at a fresh multiyear low last Thursday.

Though well known on the British High Street, HSBC makes most of its money outside the UK, with Asia accounting for the bulk of global profits.

HSBC said its pivot to Asia in recent years was paying off, with wealth management, commercial and retail banking becoming key drivers of growth.
