Talking Points:

Gold prices are digesting losses having slumped following the FOMCpolicy announcement. Still, the market-implied probability of another rate hike before year-end is now at just 63.2 percent, leaving ample room for greater certitude to be priced in at the expense of the yellow metal.

A lull in top-tier data flow will see this translate into a focus on Fed-speak in the day ahead. Comments from New York, Chicago and Minneapolis branch presidents Dudley, Evans and Kashkari are due. The latter is familiarly dovish so remarks from the former two ought to have the most market-moving potential.

Crude oil prices are struggling to find fresh momentum after last week’s breakout. Today’s Kurdish independence referendum may break the standstill. A vote in favor of a Kurdish state in oil-rich northern Iraq, opposed by Baghdad as well as Iran and Turkey, may boost prices amid supply disruption fears.
