Crude Oil, Gold Aim Higher as Risky Assets Mount Relief Rally

Crude Oil, Gold Aim Higher as Risky Assets Mount Relief Rally

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

Talking Points

Commodity prices are on the upswing to start the trading week as risk sentiment mounts a cautious recovery after three consecutive weeks of aggressive selling. In the absence of top-tier economic data or significant Eurozone-linked news flow, the catalyst appears to have come by way of supportive overnight comments from Chinese Premier Wen Jiaobao, who said Beijing will maintain an active fiscal policy focused on stabilizing economic growth. The remarksstoked hopes that China will undertake stimulus measures to boost its own performance and by extension that of the global economy at large.

Looking ahead, the absence of major scheduled event risk through the end of US trading hours suggests the corrective advance is likely to continue. Indeed, S&P 500 stock index futures are pointing firmly higher ahead of the opening bell on Wall Street, arguing for a near-term upside scenario for growth-geared crude oil and copper prices. Gold and silver likewise stand to gain if the rebound in the risk space dents safe-haven demand for the US Dollar. With that in mind, disappointment in the largely fruitless G8 summit over the weekend is likely to keep a lid on the festivities considering none of the headwinds battering risky assets recently have materially changed.

WTI Crude Oil (NY Close): $91.48 // -1.08 // -1.17%

As with the S&P 500, prices are staging an intraday recovery from support at 90.49 to challenge resistance at 92.51, a former support marked by the December 16 low. A break above this boundary exposes the February 2 low at 95.41. Alternatively, a break of support targets 88.55.
