Crude Oil, Gold May Resume Selloff on Fed Beige Book

Crude Oil, Gold May Resume Selloff on Fed Beige Book

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

Crude oil and gold prices may come under renewed selling pressure if the Fed Beige Book survey points to an unraveling US recovery and sinks risk appetite.

Talking Points

  • Crude Oil, Copper at Risk if Fed Beige Book Rekindles Risk Aversion
  • Gold and Silver to Resume Selloff if Haven Flows Boost the US Dollar

All eyes are on the Federal Reserve Beige Book survey of regional economic conditions.Investors will look at the release in the context of growing fears about the health of the global economy that erupted into large-scale risk aversion at the start of the week. Signs of a slowdown mirroring recently disappointing US economic news-flow may reapply downward pressure on sentiment,punishing cycle-sensitive crude oil and copper prices. Gold and silver may likewise come under fire as haven flows buoy the US Dollar, applying de-facto selling pressure on anti-fiat assets. S&P 500 index futures are pointing firmly lower in early European trade, reinforcing the case for a risk-off scenario.
