Comex Commodity Trading Signals and Market News – 09 September 2014

INTERNATIONAL COMMODITY NEWS :

Natural gas prices posted solid gains on Monday after investors felt forecasts for milder U.S. weather sent the commodity falling to attractively-priced levels. On the New York Mercantile Exchange, natural gas futures for delivery in October were up 1.83% at $3.863 per million British thermal units during U.S. trading. The commodity hit a session low of $3.767, and a high of $3.878. The October contract settled down 0.68% on Friday to end at $3.793 per million British thermal units. Natural gas prices took a dive last week after weather forecasts called for below-normal temperatures to move across the country this week, which should cut into demand for air conditioning and prompt thermal power plants to burn less of the commodity as a result.

Oil prices moved to nine-month lows on Monday after weak Chinese import data and Friday’s soft U.S. August jobs report stoked demand concerns, especially at a time when global supply remains ample. In the New York Mercantile Exchange, West Texas Intermediate crude oil for delivery in October traded down 1.06% at $92.30 a barrel during U.S. trading. New York-traded oil futures hit a session low of $91.81 a barrel and a high of $93.61 a barrel. The October contract settled down 1.23% at $93.29 a barrel on Friday. Nymex oil futures were likely to find support at $91.24 a barrel, the low from Jan. 9, and resistance at $95.91 a barrel, last Tuesday’s high. Data released earlier showed that China’s exports rose more than forecast in August, though imports fell unexpectedly, underlining concerns over the health of the world’s second largest economy.

Gold prices rebounded in early Asia on Tuesday with physical deman in focus ahead of a traditional season of Indian buying. On the Comex division of the New York Mercantile Exchange, gold futures for December delivery traded at $1,257.30 troy ounce, up 0.24%, after hitting an overnight session low of $1,252.20 and off a high of $1,272.50. Overnight, gold prices edged lower after the dollar moved higher as investors shrugged off Friday’s weak August jobs report and bet more upbeat economic indicators will continue to hit the wire down the road. Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen has said that slackness persists in the labor market despite an improving economy, and Friday’s data sent investors rethinking timetables as to when interest rates may rise in the U.S., seen by many taking place in 2015.

TRADING STRATEGY :

  • BUY GOLD ABOVE 1258 TGT 1262,1267 SL 1253
  • SELL GOLD BELOW 1252 TGT 1248,1243 SL 1257
