Gold and Oil Markets Report – 08 May 2017

A guest post written by DAR Wong and Chong HC

Gold prices have been falling as expected last week. Market topped off USD1270 /oz since last Monday and came below USD1230 /oz on Friday. This week, we believe there will be bargain-hunting at USD1220 /oz region with valid support. Range is expected to consolidate from USD1220 – USD1250 /oz with no huge movement for the time being.

Crude Oil

WTI Crude prices have fallen below our predicted support at USD46 / barrel though the trend closed around this same region on Friday. The bears stretched beneath USD44 / barrel on Friday and short-covered. Traders are selling off the Crude inversely to increasing demand in pushing U.S. major index to new historical high. This week, we reckon the market will trade from USD44 – USD48 /barrel in mixed sentiment. Breaking below USD44 /barrel will drive down to USD42 /barrel region.


Silver prices have pierced beneath USD16.80 /oz and turns this region into current resistance. Technically, we expect support will emerge at USD16.20 – USD16.30 /oz area and push the price movement into short-covering. This week, range is expected from USD16.30 – USD16.80 /oz in whipsaw and recovery. Both Gold and Silver should reach a temporary bottom and consolidate while waiting for a new resurgence.

Crude Palm Oil

Crude Palm Oil Futures (FCPO) on Bursa Malaysia Derivatives makes a recovery on week-chart while July contract closed at RM2580 /MT on Friday. As the open-interest in Futures market is not strong enough, we expect the trend to move sideways for few days with support consolidating at RM2520 /MT region. On the hind side, the impending bulls may lead the trend higher at RM2700 /MT when the timing matures towards end of coming week.
