Precious metal Prices Languish at 2018 Lows despite Dollar U-Turn
Precious metal prices continued to languish at year-to-date lows despite the dollar turning negative and rising geopolitical tensions amid growing fears of a U.S.-China trade war. Yellow metals fell as the dollar posted a fresh 2018 high before profit taking sparked a reversal pressuring the greenback lower. Raising the prospect of a tit-for-tat trade war between the world’s two largest economies, Beijing ignored Trump’s threats, however, vowing to immediately impose penalties of the “same scale” on American goods.
Oil Prices Settle 2.7% Lower on Growing Fears of OPEC Output Hike
Crude oil prices settled lower as data pointing to an ongoing expansion in U.S. output and fears that Saudi Arabia and Russia were set to hike production weighed on sentiment. Pointing to signs of an expansion in U.S. output, the number of oil rigs operating in the US increased for a fourth-straight week, rising by 1 to 863, according to data from energy services firm Baker Hughes. Crude oil Traders fear that an uptick in global output would slow the rebalancing in oil markets as the production-cut agreement has proved effective in slashing the glut in global crude supplies.
Base Metal Is Conspicuously Tight-Lipped on U.S.-China Rift
China could respond to Friday’s U.S. tariffs by cutting imports of raw materials, hurting corporate revenue and weighing on metals prices. A full-out trade war between the U.S. and China could negatively affect the metals and mining sector in several ways. U.S. tariffs on a huge range of equipment and parts could feed inflation, driving up miner’s costs. If it also hikes domestic production of resources like copper or coal, the boost to supply could be a double-whammy for prices. Base metals prices in three months on the London Metal Exchange were for the most part lower on the morning of Friday June 15.
