Crude Oil, Gold, Silver & Copper Markets

Note: Except for the industrial metals, all commodities are weak in here.

Gold at 1313.99 moved lower, as lower safe haven demand and anxiety over the coming central bank actions keep the participants away. The support of 1310-1300 is expected to hold for the next 1-3 sessions.

Silver at 18.9590 is ranged between 18.75-19.30 for the last 5 sessions, it can expand to 18.50-19.30. At 18.50 buyers will come in.

Brent Crude at 46.32, and WTI Crude Oil at 43.66 trading at lower end of their ranges of 45.00-50.00 and 42.50-47.00 respectively, and since no new developments or data is expected in here, they will be ranged.

Copper at 2.1620 extend gains after the Chinese demand boost, see test at 2.20 – 2.25 near term. 1st support is at 2.12.
