Gold, Crude Oil May Rebound on US 4Q GDP Upgrade

Gold, Crude Oil May Rebound on US 4Q GDP Upgrade

Commodity prices are lagging firming risk appetite but an upward revision may spark a catch-up advance, with oil chasing stocks higher as gold gains on stimulus bets.

Talking Points

  • Crude Oil, Copper May Follow Risk Trends Higher on US GDP Upgrade
  • Gold and Silver Have Scope to Recovery on Global Stimulus Outlook

Commodity prices are showing notably mixed cues in European trade despite a pickup in risk appetite across European stock exchanges on the back of global monetary stimulus outlook. The Fed’s Ben Bernanke and the ECB’s Mario Draghi both signalled a commitment to continued accommodation while Japan’s Shinzo Abe formally nominated vocally dovish Asian Development Bank President Haruhiko Kuroda to take over as Governor of the BOJ.

Reticence may evaporate after revised fourth-quarter US GDP figures cross the wires however. Economists’ forecasts point to a revision higher, showing the economy added 0.5 percent. Initial estimates showed output shrank 0.1 percent. The outcome is likely to be interpreted in the context of the looming “sequester” spending cuts set to trigger on Friday, with a relatively firm result set to boost risk appetite amid hopes the world’s top economy will be able to withstand another dose of austerity.

WTI Crude Oil (NY Close): $92.76 // +0.13 // +0.14%

Prices are retesting support-turned-resistance at 92.80, the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement. A break back above this barrier exposes the 23.6% level at 94.87. Near-term support is at 91.13, the 50.0% Fib, with a drop beneath that targeting the 61.8% retracement at 89.45.
