BULLION:-
Gold The dollar index, which measures the greenback against a basket of six major currencies, was down 0.1 per cent. Stocks on major world markets edged lower on Tuesday, with a decline in the materials sector offsetting rising energy shares. US long-dated Treasury yields fell on Tuesday in choppy trading, as investors took a respite from selling bonds that took rates to multi-year highs following recent economic data and on interest rate prospects over the next year and a half. Risks to the global financial system have risen over the past six months and could increase sharply if pressures in emerging markets escalate or global trade relations deteriorate further, the IMF said on Wednesday

METALS:-
The SHFE 1811 contract also performed strongly overnight. It jumped past 107,000 yuan/mt to the highest since September and ended at 106,950 yuan/mt. The metal was voted as the most promising base metal for 2019 at this year's LME week in London, which might account for the recent increases in prices of futures. We expect LME nickel to hover at $12,800/mt today with the SHFE 1811 contract trading at 105,500-107,500 yuan/mt. Spot prices are seen at 105,000-112,000 yuan/mt. London copper rebounded above the daily moving average to a high of $6,303.5/mt and settled at $6,295/mt on Tuesday after the dollar dipped when US bond yields fell. On the technical front, LME copper managed to stand firmly above the five- and 10-day moving averages and approached the upper Bollinger band. Its MACD red line extended, reflecting the strength of longs. The SHFE 1811 contract soared to a high of 51,140 yuan/mt after it hovered at the daily moving average overnight.

ENERGY:-
Oil prices edged lower on Wednesday after the IMF lowered its global growth forecasts but prices were supported as Hurricane Michael churned towards Florida, causing the shutdown of nearly 40 percent of U.S. Gulf of Mexico crude output. Trade tensions and rising import tariffs were taking a toll on commerce, while emerging markets struggle with tighter financial conditions and capital outflows, the IMF said are peaking at the most opportunistic time given waning global growth narrative," said Stephen Innes, head of trading APAC at OANDA in Singapore. In the United States, nearly 40 percent of daily crude oil production was lost from offshore U.S. Gulf of Mexico wells on Tuesday because of platform evacuations and shut-ins ahead of Hurricane Michael

BULLION:-

Gold The dollar index, which measures the greenback against a basket of six major currencies, was down 0.1 per cent. China and the United States plunged deeper into a trade war on Tuesday after Beijing added $60 billion of US products to its import tariff list in retaliation for President Donald Trump's planned levies on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods. Asian stocks rose and US Treasury yields hovered near four-month highs on Wednesday, as investors looked past the latest escalation in the US-China trade conflict, seen by some market participants as less severe than expected. The US Senate voted overwhelmingly on Tuesday to pass a mammoth spending package including $675 billion for the Defense Department and a measure to keep the entire federal government open until Dec. 7, a step toward avoiding a Sept. 30 shutdown. 

METALS:-

London copper led the gains overnight and settled 2.36% higher at $6,091/mt when eased market worries buoyed most base metals. It broke resistance at the 40-day moving average as shorts exited, and may test pressure above at the 60-day moving average in the short run. The SHFE 1811 contract also closed higher at 49,610 yuan/mt after rising to a high of 49,730 yuan/mt. Spot premiums will remain firm at 250-310 yuan/mt today.   Both LME nickel and the SHFE 1811 contract closed slightly higher as investors reduced concerns over the China-US trade war. Fresh US tariffs imposed on Chinese goods are expected to cause limited impact on the downstream stainless steel sector as China barely exports such products to the US. We expect LME nickel to consolidate around $12,300/mt today with the 1811 contract trading at 101,500-103,000 yuan/mt. Spot prices are set at 101,500-108,000 yuan/mt today. 

ENERGY:-

Oil prices on Wednesday pulled back from gains racked up the previous day, pushed down amid a surprise climb in U.S. crude stockpiles. U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude CLc1 fell 0.20 percent, or 14 cents, to $69.71 a barrel. U.S. crude inventories rose by 1.2 million barrels to 397.1 million in the week to Sept. 14, according to data released on Tuesday by the American Petroleum Institute (API). That compared with analyst expectations for a decrease of 2.7 million barrels. Stockpiles of distillate fuels, which include diesel and heating oil, rose by 1.5 million barrels, the API data showed, compared with expectations for a 651,000-barrel gain. U.S. crude build temporarily grabbed trader attention," said Chen Kai, head of commodities research at broker Shengda Futures.

BULLION:-

The price of gold was flat as Friday’s upbeat jobs report increased expectations of a Fed rate hike in September. Expectations of higher interest rates tend to boost the dollar by making the currency more attractive to yield-seeking investors. Higher rates are a negative for gold as the precious metal, which does not pay interest, struggles to compete with yield-bearing assets when rates rise. Trade tensions with China continued, as U.S. President Donald Trump warned he would impose tariffs on $267 billion worth of Chinese imports, on top of an earlier promise of tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods. Trade worry and rate hike expectations have pushed the greenback near a one-year high, which weighed on gold. The U.S. dollar index, which measures the greenback’s strength against a basket of six major currencies, rose 0.21% to 94.84.Gold usually falls as the dollar rises, as it is denominated in the U.S. currency and is sensitive to moves in the dollar. Bullion becomes more expensive for holders of other currencies when the dollar rises and cheaper when it falls.

ENREGY:-
Oil prices rose on Monday as U.S. drilling stalled and as investors anticipated lower supply once new U.S. sanctions against Iran's crude exports kick in from November. Benchmark Brent crude oil  rose $1.09 a barrel, or 1.4 percent, to a high of $77.92 and was trading at $77.85 by 0900 GMT. U.S. light crude was 70 cents higher at $68.45. U.S. drillers cut two oil rigs last week, bringing the total count to 860, Baker Hughes said on Friday. The number of rigs drilling for oil in the United States has stalled since May, reflecting increases in well productivity but also bottlenecks and infrastructure constraints. the United States, Iranian crude oil exports are declining ahead of a November deadline for the implementation of new U.S. sanctions.

Gold Remains Near One-Year Low.

Gold prices were steady near a one-year low on Wednesday as a higher dollar and comments from Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell continued to weigh. Powell reiterated the central bank should gradually increase interest rates at his hearing at Congress on Tuesday. Trade tensions and fiscal policy made the future uncertain, he added. The Fed raised rates twice this year and is expected to raise rates at least once more before the end of the year. Higher rates are a negative for gold as the precious metal, which does not pay interest, struggles to compete with yield-bearing assets when rates rise. Gold falls as the dollar rises, as the precious metal is denominated in the U.S. currency and is sensitive to moves in the dollar.

Zinc chalked up its largest daily gain in a year, recovering from this week’s one-year low on bargain hunting and falling inventories.

Zinc on MCX settled up 4.71% at 181.15 gained on short covering tracking weakness from LME Zinc prices which pulled away from one-year lows hit earlier in the week and the metal recorded its first daily jump in seven trading days in Shanghai, tracking a rise on the London Metal Exchange (LME) amid plunging inventories. Zinc prices is down 10.1 percent so far this month in Shanghai and 11.3 percent in London on concerns about oversupply, but it had been boosted by positive data from top metals consumer China on Tuesday. in a note, adding that zinc was “one of the metals most leveraged to the housing and construction sectors. Meanwhile expectations for a rise in zinc concentrate supplies in coming years have driven down the metal price in London to one-year lows, but smelting capacity constraints suggest the sell-off is premature.

Aluminium exports record second monthly high in Jun.

China’s export volumes of unwrought aluminium and aluminium products logged its second monthly high, of all time, in June as the growth in extrusion exports exceeded the decline in flat rolled product exports, SMM research found. The total figure for the first six months of this year grew 11.3% on the year and registered 2.72 million mt. SMM found that extrusion exports in June were substantially boosted by the depreciating Chinese yuan. Export orders for aluminium coil for remelting also boomed in June on high profits.

Oil prices extend gains, buoyed by unexpected drop in U.S. gasoline stocks.

Oil prices on Thursday extended gains from the previous session, buoyed after official data showed that U.S. inventories of gasoline, diesel and heating oil unexpectedly fell last week.A Reuters poll taken before the data release had forecast that gasoline stocks would be unchanged and distillate stockpiles would show a build of around 900,000 barrels. U.S. crude stocks rose by 5.8 million barrels last week, compared with a forecast of a decline of 3.6 million barrels. Oil production reached a record 11 million barrels per day, the EIA said. The United States has added nearly 1 million bpd in production since November, thanks to rapid increases in shale drilling.

Gold Prices Edge Lower After Fed Comments.

Gold Prices were slightly lower on Wednesday and hovered near a one-year low as the dollar strengthened following Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell’s comments on Tuesday that reinforced views the central bank is on track to gradually raise interest rates. A U.S. central banker said on Tuesday that the Fed should ease away from money policy accommodation and raise interest rate to avoid inflation as data showed the U.S. economy has improved in recent months. “At a time of full employment with price stability, policy should be a neutral influence on economic activity,” Kansas City Federal Reserve Bank President Esther George said in remarks prepared for delivery to an agricultural symposium. “Gradual further increases in our policy rate will be necessary to return policy to a neutral stance, although there is considerable uncertainty about exactly how far or fast we need to go.”

Copper prices edged lower pushed down by a stronger dollar and fears that demand will be damaged by a global trade war and weaker economic growth in China.

Copper on MCX settled down -0.85% at 417.85 on fresh selling tracking weakness from LME copper prices which was depressed by a stronger US dollar to a low of around $6,150/mt. However, we expect copper prices to see limited downward room in the short term as the union at Escondida rejected BHP’s offer and a threat of strike remains. While Concerns over the US-China trade disputes and weak Chinese economic data weighed on market sentiment and copper prices.

Zinc recovered on short covering after prices remained under pressure amid worries over Washington-Beijing trade war curbing demand.

Zinc on MCX settled up 1.29% at 173 gained on short covering as support seen after LME zinc prices halted its downward trend while sentiments still remain weak with pressure from a rising US dollar. Zinc prices are likely to gain some support from shrinking social inventories across Shanghai, Guangdong and Tianjin. We expect the contract to strengthen today given LME zinc’s strong performance. Last night the US dollar index gained 0.48% to close at 94.96 on Federal Reserve Board chairman Jerome Powell’s remarks that back more rate increases as the economy is growing “considerably stronger”.

Oil prices drop amid surprise jump in U.S. stockpiles.

Oil prices dropped on Wednesday after an industry group reported that U.S. crude inventories rose last week, defying analyst expectations for a significant reduction.U.S. West Texas Intermediate crude was down 36 cents, or 0.5 percent, at $67.72. It settled up 2 cents at $68.08 a barrel the session before, coming off a nearly one-month low. The benchmarks had steadied after big declines on Monday and last week as supply disruptions in Venezuela came to the fore and as analysts had been forecasting a decline of 3.6 million barrels in U.S. inventories for the week through July 13. But the specter of oversupply quickly returned, with a rise of more than 600,000 barrels in U.S. crude stockpiles, reported by the American Petroleum Institute late on Tuesday.

Gold Falls as Lower Dollar, Data Weigh.

Gold prices inched down on Monday, despite a lower U.S. dollar as data supported expectations of a Fed interest rate increase. Gold was weighed down by economic data pointing to an increase in Federal Reserve interest rates. Retail sales increased by 0.5% for the fifth month in a row, according to the U.S. Commerce Department. The Fed raised rates twice this year and is expected to raise rates at least once more before the end of the year. Higher rates are a negative for gold as the precious metal, which does not pay interest, struggles to compete with yield-bearing assets when rates rise. Investors were also paying attention to any news of the meeting between U.S. President Donald Trump Russian President Vladimir Putin at their one-on-one meeting in Helsinki on Monday. Meanwhile the dollar was lower.

East China spot aluminium trading thin amid a seasonal lull.

Spot aluminium trading in east China was thin on Monday July 16 despite the tumble in prices, SMM learned. This was because downstream consumers purchased only on demand during a seasonal lull. The SHFE 1807 contract initially fell on the morning of its last trading day. Transactions in Shanghai were mostly heard at 13,850-13,870 yuan/mt with discounts of 10-0 yuan/mt against the 1807 contract. Sellers in east China were willing to offload their cargoes as inventory of primary aluminium across the region increased over the weekend. Traders mostly kept on the sidelines. Prices in Guangdong slumped this morning with most transactions done at 13,940 yuan/mt. Overall trading in the south China province was decent as some traders believed the market may have hit the bottom.

Anhui secondary refined lead output misses expectation.

Secondary refined lead supply in Anhui province fell short of earlier expectations due to the unexpected maintenance work at one large-scale smelter, SMM learned. A large smelter in the Jieshou area suspended production from Thursday July 12 to undertake maintenance for about half a month. Output at another large smelter in Jieshou was also limited by maintenance of its production line. Recovered production at some secondary refined lead smelters in Taihe was also unstable given the supply shortage of secondary lead materials.

Oil Prices Edge Up After Slumping More Than 4% Following Mnuchin’s Comments.

Oil prices rebounded on Tuesday after plunging more than 4% in the previous session as U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said the U.S. is considering waivers on Iran sanctions for some crude importers.Mnuchin told reporters that the U.S. wants to avoid disrupting global oil markets and is considering waivers for countries that need more time to wind down imports of oil from Iran while reimposing sanctions against Tehran. President Donald Trump withdrew the U.S. from the 2015 Iran nuclear deal and restored sanctions on Tehran in May. “We want people to reduce oil purchases to zero, but in certain cases if people can’t do that overnight, we’ll consider exceptions,” Mnuchin said. His comments contradicted some U.S. officials’ comments earlier that said there would be no exemptions.

Commodities-Market-1

Gold prices slipped as the dollar gains amid a strong U.S. inflation report and continued trade war concerns were cited as tailwind for the greenback.

Gold on MCX settled down -0.14% at 30105 as the dollar rose due to easing trade tensions and weak demand for the precious metal due to expectations of higher interest rates in the United States. Tensions between the United States and China eased after U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said on Thursday talks between the world’s two largest economies could be reopened if Beijing is willing to make significant changes. The Federal Reserve last month raised its benchmark overnight lending rate 25 basis points to 1.75-2.0 percent. Expectations are for another two rate rises this year and three in 2019. Investors retreating from gold can be seen in the largest gold- backed exchange-traded-fund (ETF), New York’s SPDR Gold Trust GLD, which has seen its holdings fall more than 8 percent since late April to below 26 million ounces.

Secondary lead smelters operate at higher levels in Jun on high profits.

High profit margins kept secondary lead smelters in China operating at high levels in June, SMM research found. The operating rate at secondary lead smelters came in at 48.3% in June, up 6.62 percentage points from May, 2.34 percentage points higher from the same period last year, SMM data showed. Smelters produced 137,200 mt of secondary lead in June, up 18,800 mt from May. June saw healthy profit margins on high prices of lead and low prices of battery scrap. We expect output and operating rates to continue to increase in July as small or illegal smelters are likely to ramp up production after the central government’s environmental probes end. Production at some smelters with production permits is also likely to recover after limitations from the environmental probes ease.

Aluminium inventory rebounds after 10 weeks of decline.

China’s inventory of primary aluminium across eight major markets, including SHFE warrants, inched up 17,000 mt over the weekend to stand at 1.82 million mt as of Monday July 16, SMM data showed. This marked a rebound after 10 consecutive weeks of decline, as more deliveries arrived during the weekend.

Oil Prices Edge Lower; Trump-Putin Summit In Focus.

Oil prices edged lower on Monday as traders awaited the outcome of the first offcial dialogue between U.S. President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin summit in Helsinki later in the day.”A summit between U.S. President Trump and Russian President Putin is being watched in case they say something about oil,” said Kim Kwang-rae, commodity analyst at Samsung (KS:005930) Futures in Seoul. Trump has been vocal about his dissatisfaction with higher oil prices and has urged OPEC to lower prices earlier this month. Reports that the U.S. is considering to rein in prices by tapping into its emergency crude supplies were also cited as headwind for oil prices. The continued trade concerns between the U.S. and China remained in focus, as traders fear the development could threaten global demand.

Metal Prices in Rebound Mode; Gold Prices Edge Higher -   Gold prices steadied Thursday, as the dollar gave up some of its gains, while easing trade-war concerns prompted traders to cut bearish bets on other metals. Gold prices moved off seven-month lows as the dollar struggled to hold gains, hovering just above the flatline, after data showed timid growth in consumer prices last month.et safe-haven gold struggled to make a meaningful advance as risk-appetite turned positive on the prospect of renewed U.S.-China trade talks. Bloomberg reported that U.S. and Chinese officials considered restarting the trade conversations, which could lead to a bilateral agreement. Improved sentiment on the trade-war front comes just days after the White House issued a list late Tuesday of 10% tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese imports it will assess.

LME Zinc dropped by its 6 percent downside limit in Shanghai to 20,620 yuan per tonne, the lowest since June last year. Last night the US dollar index continued to gain on steadily-rising US inflation data and trade war saga. It closed at 94.8, with a slower growth rate from Wednesday.

Secondary aluminium operating rate extends decline in Jun - Operating rate across Chinese secondary aluminium producers dropped in June due to a seasonal lull, environmental probes, stricter limits on impurities in scrap imports and sweeping tariffs on US aluminium scrap imports. June’s rate came in at 52.74%, down 5.91 percentage points month on month and 6.17 percentage points year on year. Production at most producers shrank and finished products inventory edged down. Most producers had relatively high finished products inventory as demand throughout the first six months of this year was much weaker than the same period last year. Producers, therefore, preferred to cut production and destock amid a seasonal lull in order to better manage their cashflows.

Oil Prices Slip Amid Continued Concerns of Trade War, Return of Libyan Oil - Oil prices slipped on Friday as concerns about a China-U.S. trade war and the return of Libyan oil to the market continued to be cited as catalysts for the selling.
