Commodities: Crude Oil, Gold May Rise on US Consumer Confidence

Commodities: Crude Oil, Gold May Rise on US Consumer Confidence

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

Commodity prices may rise as US consumer confidence hits a 62-month high, boosting risk appetite and applying downward pressure on the US Dollar.

Talking Points

  • Commodity Prices Flat, Looking for Direction in Early European Trade
  • Crude Oil, Gold May Rise as US Consumer Confidence Stokes Risk Trends

Commodity prices are treading water in early European trade. A nudge higher into the end of the trading week may be ahead as traders look ahead to November’s gauge of US consumer confidence from the University of Michigan. Economists expect the index will edge up to 83.0, the highest reading since September 2007. Such an outcome may feed hopes that a firming US recovery will help offset downward pressure on global growth from a recession in the Eurozone and a slowdown in Asia, boosting risk appetite. In this scenario, sentiment-geared crude oil and copper prices are likely to rise along with stock prices while gold and silver find de-facto support on the back of waning haven demand for the US Dollar.
