Crude Oil, Gold May Rebound on Euro Summit and Fed Minutes Hopes

Crude Oil, Gold May Rebound on Euro Summit and Fed Minutes Hopes

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

Talking Points

  • Crude Oil, Copper May Rebound on EU FinMin Summit, Fed Minutes Outlook
  • Gold and Silver Have Room to Recover as Dollar Corrects, QE3 Hopes Return

Commodity prices are on the upswing as markets correct following Friday’s selloff in the wake of a disappointing US jobs report. Overnight data showing Chinese inflation slowed to a 29-month low at 2.2 percent is reinforcing support, hinting the world’s number-two economy and major raw materials consumer may have scope to ease monetary policy further after cutting rates last week.

Looking ahead, all eyes are on the Eurozone finance ministers’ summit set to get underway in Brussels today. The sit-down is expected to produce ratification of the operational details of Spain’s bank bailout effort and may produce a near-term bounce in assets geared to sentiment. Profit-taking on anti-risk positions with a view to the possibility that FOMC meeting minutes due to print on Wednesday may stoke QE3 expectations stands to reinforce this dynamic.

On balance, this opens the door for a larger recovery in growth-sensitive crude oil and copper prices. Meanwhile, gold and silver may find scope to rise as haven flows reverse out of the US Dollar while returning stimulus hopes boost inflation-hedge demand.

WTI Crude Oil (NY Close): $84.45 // -2.77 // -3.18%

Prices broke lower through resistance-turned-support at 85.50 after putting in a Shooting Star candlestick below the 90.00 figure. Sellers now aim to challenge the 82.10-81.19 area marked by the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion and a former range bottom, with a break below that exposing the 38.2% level at 77.83. The 85.50 level has been recast as resistance once again.
