Crude Oil, Gold, Silver & Copper Markets
Commentary: Commodities are waiting for the BOJ and FOMC meets and may move today after the central banks policy announcements. PE
Gold at 1317.20 is little changed in the last 3 trading sessions and may move little before the FOMC policy statement Wednesday afternoon. So, as long as the support at 1310-1300 holds, the chances of seeing 1330 is still in view.
Silver 19.23 held Tuesday, but resistance at 19.30 must be broken on the Northside, or the range bound movement in 18.50-19.30 may continue longer in here.
Brent Crude at 46.54 and WTI Crude Oil at 44.89 work to stay above respective supports of 45.00 and 42.50. Should the supports hold in here, then could see a bounce to 50.00 for Brent Crude and 46.00 for WTI Crude Oil near term.
Copper 2.158 has been trading around the same marks at 2.15-17 for the last 5 sessions, but may see 2.20 – 2.25 in the near term. 1st support lies at 2.12.
