Gold and Oil Markets Report – 29 October 2017

A guest post written by DAR Wong and Chong HC

Crude Oil

WTI Crude prices exhibited good demand last week but capped beneath USD55.00 /barrel. Brent Crude has reached USD60 /barrel while U.S. WTI Crude follows suit. This week, we foresee a tight range will impose on market from USD52.00 – USD55.00 /barrel until the trend breaks beyond in either direction. . OPEC and shale oil production continues to play as catalyst role in pushing up Crude demand.


Gold prices rebound on Friday but still loiters at USD1270 /oz area. This week, we forecast the trend will be supported at USD1260 /oz in case of further drawdown. For the time being, we believe the trend is closely related to Dollar weight and might thread from USD1260 – USD1290 /oz without a sure headway yet. Focus is still laid on European fundamentals in Spain’s debacle before shifting to yellow metal at latter time.


Silver prices stabilized at USD16.80 /oz on Friday after making a fast dip at USD16.60 /oz. This week, we predict the trend will recover in sideways while consolidating from USD16.60 – USD17.10 /oz range. The study on Gold/Silver ratio chart tells the possibility of bottoming out in Gold and Silver prices, thus might expect a recovery in November in their separate trends.

Crude Palm Oil

Crude Palm Oil Futures (FCPO) on Bursa Malaysia Derivatives rose last week due to weaker Ringgit. The USD/MYR climbs to 4.24 and probably will ascend higher to 4.28 this week. January contract closed at RM2817 /MT in strong volume. This week, we foresee the trend is supported at RM2760 /MT in case of quick correction. Market bulls might reach higher to RM2900 /MT if the demand could stay above RM2800 /MT level.
