Asia: Gold, Crude Oil, Stocks, Commodities and Currency Pairs

FLASH: Gold Steady, USD Flat, Crude Oil Off, Stocks Cautious


  • Crude Oil pares gains
  • Middle East risks keep stocks in caution mode
  • Gold prices little changed as markets eye Fed outlook

Gold: Gold traded steady Tuesday as traders stayed on the sidelines ahead of a widely expected rate cut by the Fed on Wednesday.

  • Spot gold was little changed at $1,498.80 oz, as of 0535 GMT,
  • US Gold futures were down 0.4% at $1,505.6 oz.

Gold is looking for a catalyst.

Energy: Crude Oil shed some of its big gains Tuesday as the United States flagged the possible release of strategic reserves, but the threat of military action over the attacks on Saudi facilities kept prices elevated and stocks under pressure.

  • ICE Brent Crude Oil fell 0.96% to $68.39 bbl Tuesday,
  • NYMEX WTI Crude Oil futures were down 1.29% to $62.09 bbl. 

President Trump has authorized the release of emergency crude stockpiles if needed, which could ease some upward pressure on Crude Oil futures.

Equities: MSCI’s broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares sans Japan was down 0.66%. Chinese shares fell 1.07%, while Hong Kong shares off 1.18%.

Euro Stoxx 50 futures were down 0.11%, German DAX futures were down 0.02%, while FTSE futures fell 0.31%.

There is a risk-off tone,
