Gold Price Flat before Fed, Oil Price Rises on Lower Stockpile

Gold Price Flat before Fed, Oil Price Rises on Lower Stockpile

Talking Points:

  • Gold price stayed unchanged as investors awaited US FOMC meeting
  • Oil price rose following lower than expected inventory data from the API
  • Copper price also traded flat as USD held gains before event risk

Oil price rose after inventory data from the American Petroleum Institute showed on Tuesday that crude stockpile rose by 1.5 million barrels last week, about half of what was expected. Official production and inventory figures will be released by the U.S. government's Energy Information Administration on Wednesday. This inventory data is expected to show a fifth straight week of increase.

Copper pricetraded sideways as the USD held gains before Federal Reserve’s meeting. Copper premiums for China shipments have hit the lowest this year and physical market seems to be in no hurry to stock it up. Moreover, factories have swapped copper for its cheaper substitute – aluminium – with the help of technological innovation.

Gold price reached the lowest in nearly two weeks yesterday and was largely unchanged today as investors waited for the outcome of the Federal Reserve policy meeting. A statement is likely issued at 1800 GMT. Save haven demand has boosted gold to be the top performing asset since the start of this year, but that may change after FOMC’s decision.
