Gold and Oil Markets Report – 12 Feb 2018

A guest post written by DAR Wong and Chong HC

Crude Oil

WTI Crude prices come down to USD59 /barrel as predicted last week. Dollar recovery has weighed on Crude prices but we expect the bargain-hunting will emerge at USD58 – USD59 /barrel region. Some short-covering may occur this week and market prices will probably trade from USD58 to USD62 /barrel. However, beware of plunge beneath USD58 /barrel that could land at USD55 /barrel if demand loosens.


Gold prices have shown correction on week-chart and probably will trade in sideways to lower trend in coming weeks. Technically, we expect the market to be supported at USD1310 /oz as mentioned in previous report. Temporary recovery might reach USD1335 /oz before the next bear trend. Range is expected to be rather tight this week as traders adjust their positions in the range from USD1310 – USD1335 /oz region.


Silver prices have been supported at USD16.2 /oz last week despite selling pressure in market. This week, we forecast the trend will move into recovery as range is expected from USD16.20 – USD16.80 /oz. In case of driving below the USD16.20 /oz support, the trend may visit USD15.80 /oz before encountering new bargain-hunting in market.

Crude Palm Oil

Crude Palm Oil Futures (FCPO) on Bursa Malaysia Derivatives closed with a recovery sign on week-chart. Edible oil traded higher last week and supported FCPO demand. April contract closed at RM2515 /MT on Friday. This week, we foresee the trend may consolidate from RM2470 to RM2520 /MT before gathering new strength to surge. It’s a good opportunity to pick bottom but piercing above RM2520 /MT will indicate a new uptrend.
