CRUDE OIL & GOLD TALKING POINTS:

  • Crude oil prices rose with stocks as US shelved Mexico import tariffs
  • Gold prices down as bond yields, US Dollar advance in risk-on trade
  • Sentiment likely to remain in focus, stock index futures point upward

Sentiment-linked crude oil prices gapped higher alongside bellwether S&P 500 futures at the start of the trading week as news that the US has shelved a plan to impose tariffs on imports from Mexico buoyed overall risk appetite. Gold prices fell the upbeat mood cooled Fed rate cut speculation, sending the US Dollar higher alongside bond yields and undercutting the appeal of non-interest-bearing and anti-fiat assets.

CRUDE OIL MAY CONTINUE HIGHER AS GOLD FALLS IN RISK-ON TRADE

Looking ahead, a relatively muted offering on the economic data docket might broad-based trends in the markets’ mood in focus. Futures tracking Wall Street stock benchmark are pointing convincingly higher, hinting that the risk-on tilt may extend from Asia Pacific trade into European and US hours. That might bode ill for gold as crude oil continues to recover.
