Gold and Oil Markets Report – 4 December 2017

A guest post written by DAR Wong and Chong HC

Crude Oil

WTI Crude prices traded mainly on high-side range of USD57 – USD59 /barrel after the OPEC news of continual supply cut with Russia. Oil prices might be resisted at USD60 /barrel as Dollar tends to rise towards mid-December upon projected rate hike. No clue for making a forecast in WTI Crude direction until it extends beyond the aforementioned tight range in near future.


Gold prices traded in corrective trend after topping USD1300 /oz last week. Market has revealed strong bargain hunting at USD1270 /oz and holds the trend within this range. This week, we foresee little change in the forecast as market will be swinging from USD1270 – USD1300 /oz range. However, breaking beyond the range in either direction needs to be controlled with risk management.


Silver prices dipped unexpectedly last week to USD16.20 /oz but has exhibited strong buying interest from this bottom area. This week, we foresee strong bargain-hunting at USD16.00 – USD16.20 /oz in case of further decline but upside carries huge potential of recovery. We target the trend may reverse to USD17 /oz for making a technical correction.

Crude Palm Oil

Crude Palm Oil Futures (FCPO) on Bursa Malaysia Derivatives traded in near bottom amid short week ended on Thursday. February contract closed at RM2604 /MT on Thursday after hitting RM2560 /MT low on previous day. This week, we predict the trend will recover in some demand as Ringgit strengthens. Range is expected to trade higher from RM2580 – RM2680 /MT region.
