Commodities Rise on Risk Appetite Recovery, Earnings Docket in Focus

Commodities Rise on Risk Appetite Recovery, Earnings Docket in Focus

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

Talking Points

Commodity prices are pushing higher amid a broad-based recovery in risk appetite. Growth-geared crude oil and copper are following shares higher while gold and silver are on the upswing as ebbing haven demand weighs on the US Dollar. S&P 500 index futures are pointing firmly higher, pointing to more of the same ahead as Wall Street comes online.

On balance, the chipper mood appears corrective after yesterday’s sharp drop across the spectrum of risky assets. Indeed, a disappointing UK GDP print and a resoundingly weaker than expected German IFO business confidence reading published in early European hours hardly seem like supportive catalysts. The longevity of the upswing is likely to depend on the day’s busy earnings docket, with guidance from cycle-sensitive names like Caterpillar and Visa in focus. US New Home Sales data is also on tap, with expectations pointing to a print at 371,000 to mark the highest outcome since April 2010.

WTI Crude Oil (NY Close): $88.50 // +0.36 // +0.41%
