2. Precious Metals Market Insight   

Gold   

Fundamental Analysis:   

Gold prices retreated from one-week highs touched earlier in the session on Tuesday, driven by expectations that major central banks will tighten monetary policy aggressively as the dollar and U.S. bond yields climbed. 

The focus this week will be on Thursday’s ECB meeting, where the central bank is expected to raise rates by 75 basis points.  

USD jumped to a 20-year high after data showed the U.S. service sector rebounded for a second straight month in August due to order growth and strong employment, while supply bottlenecks and price pressures eased. 

Indicator U.S. Treasury yields rose to the highest since June on expectations that the Federal Reserve will continue to raise interest rates. 

Higher U.S. bond yields have raised the opportunity cost of holding gold.

3. Commodities Market Insight   

WTI Crude Oil   

Fundamental Analysis:

Oil prices fell on Tuesday, 6th September 2022, as the prospect of more interest rate hikes and new crown sealing measures that will weaken fuel demand reignited market concerns, reversing two days of gains from OPEC+’s first production cut target since 2020. 

USD rose about 0.6% on better-than-expected U.S. services data, which also put pressure on oil prices. 

The service sector activity data fueled expectations that the Federal Reserve will continue to raise interest rates, which could trigger a recession and bring down fuel demand. 

The foreign policy chief of the European Union (EU) said on Monday, 5th September 2022, that he is not hopeful of a swift resumption of the Iran nuclear deal.  

OPEC+ decided on Monday, 5th September 2022, to cut its October production target by 100,000 bpd. 

Oil prices rose on last Friday, 2nd September 2022, ahead of the meeting and also moved higher after the results were released. 

Due to the Labor Day holiday, the weekly inventory reports from the American Petroleum Institute (API) and the Energy Information Administration (EIA) will be released on Wednesday and Thursday, one day later than usual.
