Gold Prices Top June High But Fall Short of Convincing Breakout

Gold Prices Top June High But Fall Short of Convincing Breakout

Talking Points:

  • Gold prices breach June high, fall short of convincing breakout
  • Crude oil prices may extend bounce on weekly inventory figures
  • S&P 500 futures hint at consolidation as US jobs report looms

Crude oil prices recovered and gold prices retreated from session highs yesterday after a better-than-expected US ISM Non-manufacturing survey bolstered market-wide risk appetite. Looking ahead, a relatively quiet day on the economic data docket may make for a consolidative tone as investors look ahead to Friday’s US jobs report. Indeed, S&P 500 futures are trading flat ahead of the opening bell on Wall Street, signaling a neutral posture on sentiment trends.

The weekly EIA inventories report is expected to show crude oil stockpiles were drawn down by 2.08 million barrels. Private-sector estimates released by API point to a larger 6.7 million barrel reduction, which may offer a further lift to the WTI contract. Lasting follow-through seems unlikely without support from risk appetite however.
