Oil, Gold & Silver Prices - Page 10 Empty Gold rises to near 13-month high

Tue Mar 08, 2016 8:04 am
Message reputation : 100% (3 votes)
Gold rose on Monday, hovering just below last week's 13-month high as the U.S. dollar turned lower, while a fall in average U.S. earnings lessened expectations the Federal Reserve could raise interest rates at its next policy meeting.

Spot gold was up 0.6 percent at $1,266.70 an ounce by 3:12 p.m. EST (2012 GMT). The metal had peaked at $1,279.60 on Friday, its strongest since February 2015, before slipping on U.S. data.

U.S. gold futures for April delivery settled down 0.5 percent at $1,264 per ounce.

A pitched battle over the right path for U.S. interest rates is expected at next week's Fed policy-setting meeting.

Oil, Gold & Silver Prices - Page 10 Empty Brent dips but holds above $40

Tue Mar 08, 2016 8:06 am
Message reputation : 100% (1 vote)
Brent crude oil prices dipped early on Tuesday, but remained over $40 a barrel after jumping to a 2016-high the previous session as more producers announced talks to support the market and as investors opened new bets on further price rises.

International benchmark Brent crude futures managed to defend $40 per barrel in early trading on Tuesday, standing at $40.51 at 0154 GMT, down 33 cents from their last settlement. On Monday, the contract had surged over 5.5 percent in intra-day trading and remains 50 percent above 2016 lows from Jan. 20.

U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures were at $37.65 a barrel, down 25 cents from their last close, but over 45 percent up from their 2016 low in February.

Oil, Gold & Silver Prices - Page 10 Empty Oil prices dip on stronger dollar, demand concerns

Wed Mar 09, 2016 8:55 am
Message reputation : 100% (2 votes)
Oil prices dipped on Wednesday, weighed down by a strengthening U.S.-dollar and concerns over slowing demand, although falling U.S. production lent crude markets some support.

U.S. crude futures were trading at $36.46 per barrel at 0219 GMT, down 4 cents from their last settlement, but still almost 40 percent above February's 2016 and multi-year low.

International Brent crude futures were at $39.54 per barrel, down 11 cents from their last close, but still some 40 percent above their January lows for this year.

Oil, Gold & Silver Prices - Page 10 Empty Oil prices rise as big producers plan to discuss output

Wed Mar 09, 2016 4:40 pm
Message reputation : 100% (2 votes)
Oil prices rose above $40 a barrel on Wednesday, driven by anticipation that the world's largest exporters could agree this month to freeze production and help erode the largest global build in unwanted crude in years.

Producers in and outside the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries plan to meet in Moscow on March 20 to discuss an output freeze, an Iraqi oil official told state newspaper Al-Sabah.

Brent crude futures rose 62 cents to $40.27 a barrel by 0930 GMT (04:30 a.m. EST), having touched three-month highs on Tuesday above $41, while U.S. crude futures were up 49 cents at $36.99.

Oil, Gold & Silver Prices - Page 10 Empty South Africa says shale gas exploration to begin in next 12 months

Wed Mar 09, 2016 5:02 pm
Message reputation : 100% (2 votes)
The South African government said on Tuesday that exploration for shale gas will begin in the next 12 months, ending years of speculation over the project.

South Africa’s semi-desert Karoo region is believed to hold at least 485 trillion cubic feet of shale gas, but drilling has been delayed by environmental and economic concerns.

“One area of real opportunity for South Africa is the exploitation of shale gas,” the government said in a statement.

“Exploration activities are scheduled to commence in the next financial year.”

The government has said that shale gas could be the answer to the country’s energy challenges, as coal-fired power stations battle to meet the rising demand for electricity.

Oil, Gold & Silver Prices - Page 10 Empty Oil prices ease off multi-month highs

Thu Mar 10, 2016 7:50 pm
Message reputation : 100% (1 vote)
Oil prices dipped on Thursday, after hitting three-month highs this week, with analysts warning that larger gains would be unwarranted as refineries enter seasonal maintenance and a global glut weighs.

Brent crude futures were at $40.75 per barrel at 1329 GMT, down 32 cents from their last close, having earlier this week peaked at $41.48, the highest level since Dec. 9.

U.S. crude was down 1 cent at $38.28 per barrel, having hit $38.51 on Tuesday, also its highest since Dec. 9.

"Fundamentally you would expect prices to weaken from here because we're about to head into peak refinery turnaround season," said Virendra Chauhan, an analyst at Energy Aspects.

Oil, Gold & Silver Prices - Page 10 Empty Gold drops as ECB cuts rates

Thu Mar 10, 2016 7:52 pm
Message reputation : 100% (2 votes)
Gold fell on Thursday after the European Central Bank cut interest rates and expanded its bond-buying programme to boost growth and inflation in the euro zone, sending the euro tumbling against the dollar and lifting European shares.

While the resulting strength in the dollar weighed on spot prices, euro-denominated gold rose 1.4 percent as the single currency slid a full cent against the U.S. unit.

Spot gold hit a low of $1,237.06 an ounce and was down 0.2 percent at $1,249.95 an ounce at 1326 GMT. U.S. gold futures for April delivery were down $6.20 an ounce at $1,252.20.

Oil, Gold & Silver Prices - Page 10 Empty Oil prices rise on weaker dollar

Fri Mar 11, 2016 8:38 am
Message reputation : 100% (1 vote)
Oil prices rose over 1 percent on Friday supported by fresh investment and a weaker dollar, which makes crude cheaper for countries using other currencies, but analysts warned that any price rally was pre-mature as a global glut remained in place.

U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures were trading at $38.29 per barrel at 0225 GMT, up 45 cents from their last close.

International Brent crude futures were at $40.55 a barrel, up half a dollar.

Traders said that the price support came from a weaker dollar, which on Thursday fell by 2.5 percent against a basket of currencies <.DXY> in volatile trading after the European Central Bank eased aggressively.

Oil, Gold & Silver Prices - Page 10 Empty The ugly side of an oil comeback

Sat Mar 12, 2016 5:42 pm
Message reputation : 100% (2 votes)
A report on Friday from the International Energy Agency (IEA) says that oil prices may have bottomed, marking a notable shift from last month’s assessment that the market remained “awash in oil.” Oil, which has risen 50% from lows in January to $38, has been driven by growing signs of contained supply.

But Jeff Currie and his team at Goldman Sachs say that relief from lowered production levels only tells one side of the story.

The S&P (^GSPC) rose on Friday as the agency pointed to declining output in ex-US non-OPEC countries and a slower-than-expected post-sanction production from Iran. The agency also sees U.S. oil production falling further, which reflects spending cuts across oil & gas companies including integrateds like Chevron (CVX) and exploration & production companies like Devon (DVN).

But Currie says “the good” is accompanied by “the bad” and “the ugly.”

Oil, Gold & Silver Prices - Page 10 Empty Think Oil Has Already Bottomed? Think Again

Sun Mar 13, 2016 6:20 pm
Message reputation : 100% (2 votes)
The IEA's Oil Market Report for March, published this morning, is providing hope and excitement for oil bulls and the battered oil and gas industry.

Although the report cautions that the strong rally in oil prices since mid-January "should not be taken as a definitive sign that the worst is necessarily over," it sees "signs that prices might have bottomed out."

However, Goldman Sachs, arguably the most closely followed investment bank in the commodity markets, isn't impressed. In a note out this morning, the Commodities Research team argues that the rally in prices may be "premature".
