2. Precious Metals Market Insight

 

Gold 

Fundamental Analysis: 

Gold prices fell slightly yesterday, as investors took profits on gold after the latest economic data tempered inflation expectations.

Meanwhile, Federal Reserve officials generally supported a rate hike in March. However, the lower dollar and U.S. stocks supported a sharp rebound from the lows, and geopolitical concerns also boosted gold’s appeal.

The focus of the day is on the “horror data” retail sales, consumer confidence and Chinese trade account data.

Technical Analysis:

(Gold 1-hour chart) 

Trading Strategies: 

Gold is focused on the 1812-line today. If the price of gold runs steadily below the 1812-line, then it will pay attention to the support strength of the two positions of 1793 and 1804. If the gold price breaks above the 1812-line, it will open up a further upward space. At that time, pay attention to the suppression of 1831-line.

3. Commodities Market Insight 

WTI Crude Oil 

Fundamental Analysis: 

Oil prices edged lower yesterday as investors worried about the big U.S. interest rate hike and took profits after two straight days of gains, but expectations that a strong economic recovery will boost demand at a time of tightening supply limited losses.

Technical Analysis:
