Crude Oil Prices Fell as China Rebuffed US Call to Cut Iran Imports

Crude Oil Prices Fell as China Rebuffed US Call to Cut Iran Imports

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

CRUDE OIL & GOLD TALKING POINTS:

  • Crude oil prices lower as China rebuffs US call to cut Iran imports
  • Gold prices corrected higher but near-term trend resistance held
  • Lull in scheduled event risk may clear the way for kneejerk volatility

Crude oil prices edged lower Friday after China said it will not follow the US’ lead in cutting imports from Iran. The re-imposition of sanctions following the Trump administration’s decision to scrap an Obama-era nuclear disarmament accord begins on Monday. Meanwhile, gold prices corrected a bit higher following the prior day’s steep losses.

STRAY HEADLINES MAY SPARK OIL, GOLD VOLATILITY

Looking ahead, a quiet start to the trading week leaves commodity prices without a readily obvious scheduled catalyst. That might make for a consolidative tone, but traders ought to be wary of the markets’ likely increased sensitivity to headline risk in this environment. For example, stray soundbites from Washington or Beijing might amplify trade war concerns and trigger knee-jerk volatility.
