Silver and gold prices started off the week on a pessimistic note, extending declines from Friday on a similar fundamental theme. That has been a combination of a rising US Dollar and longer-term Treasury yields, as expected. Rising rates of return in fixed-income assets can bode ill for non-yielding assets, such as silver and gold.

Meanwhile, crude oil prices experienced a volatile Monday. Energy prices started off with a burst of upside momentum after reports crossed the wires that a key storage tank in Saudi Arabia was attacked, creating supply woes. However, oil spent the rest of the day falling as it became clear that output would be unaffected.

The economic calendar docket is fairly light heading into the remaining 24 hours, especially in the United States. Oil may see some volatility around API estimates for weekly stockpiles. These will be compared to official DOE figures later in the week.

Market sentiment is looking upbeat, with most Asia-Pacific equities trading in the green on Tuesday as Treasury yields weaken. This is giving commodities some breathing space as traders await Wednesday’s US CPI data for further clues into where inflation is going. As such, silver and oil prices may consolidate ahead.
