The Bloomberg Commodity Index, which measures returns on raw materials, advanced 0.3 percent as oil rose with copper. Gold and U.S. natural gas prices declined.

Brent crude added 0.7 percent to $41.48 a barrel, and West Texas Intermediate rose 1.2 percent to $39.90 a barrel in New York. Oil markets have recouped their losses this year after slumping to a 12-year low last month on speculation stronger demand and falling U.S. output will ease a surplus.

Gold fell for a third day as the dollar stabilized. Bullion for delivery in three months declined 0.8 percent to $1,244.60 an ounce. Copper futures rose 0.5 percent to $2.2945 a pound.

Oil, Gold & Silver Prices - Page 11 Empty Oil market rattled by deadly Brussels blasts

on Tue Mar 22, 2016 7:56 pm
Message reputation : 100% (2 votes)
Oil prices seesawed on Tuesday, rattled by investor nervousness after deadly blasts in Brussels prompted a flight towards so-called safe-haven assets such as gold.

A suicide bomber blew himself up at Brussels airport on Tuesday killing at least 11 people and a further blast tore through a rush-hour metro train in the Belgian capital shortly afterwards, claiming 10 lives, public broadcaster VRT said.

Oil had risen earlier in the session following a drop in U.S. inventory levels that helped ease some of the concern around oversupply that could dampen future price recoveries.

Brent crude futures LCOc1 were up 5 cents at $41.59 a barrel by 1127 GMT, having risen to a session high of $41.75. Brent has gained over 50 percent from January's 12-year lows.

U.S. May crude futures CLc1 were down 6 cents at $41.46.

PetroChina Co. profit tumbled to the lowest since 1999 as the company reported a 25 billion yuan ($3.8 billion) writedown amid the crash in energy prices.

Net income at China’s biggest oil and gas producer dropped 67 percent to 35.5 billion yuan from 107 billion yuan, according to a statement sent to the Hong Kong stock exchange. Sales fell 24 percent to 1.73 trillion yuan.

The company warned in January that 2015 profit may fall 60 percent to 70 percent.

Oil, Gold & Silver Prices - Page 11 Empty Scramble for oil storage extends, suggesting excess has room to run

on Wed Mar 23, 2016 8:45 pm
Message reputation : 100% (2 votes)
Trading houses are betting on oil markets remaining oversupplied for at least two more years even as crude prices stage a recovery driven by early signs of falling production.

Traders such as Vitol, Gunvor and Glencore are looking to extend or lock in new leases on storage tanks for crude oil and refined products in key hubs as far out as the end of 2018, sources at storage firms and trading houses say.

Storing oil in a heavily oversupplied market has been a cash cow for traders and oil companies in recent years as markets bet that future oil prices will be significantly higher than current ones, in what is known as contango.

Ian Taylor, chief executive of top oil trader Vitol, said on Tuesday that "stocks of crude and products continue to build and these will weigh upon the market".

Oil, Gold & Silver Prices - Page 11 Empty The Death of Oil Demand

on Tue Mar 29, 2016 3:33 pm
Message reputation : 100% (2 votes)
Even as U.S. oil production started to slide in the second half of 2015, the downside risks to oil prices continued to dominate.

In the third quarter, broad-based manufacturing softness and financial market turmoil threatened to derail growth in developed markets, bringing some focus back to the demand side of the ledger. Annual oil demand growth proceeded to drop off in the fourth quarter from above 2 percent to 1.2 percent with acute cracks in China and advanced economies, seemingly confirming analysts' worst fears.

But Credit Suisse Group AG Global Energy Economist Jan Stuart concludes that oil demand "growth appears to be re-accelerating" in 2016, with the recent bout of softness attributable to a warm winter, subdued activity in resource-extracting industries, and persistent weakness in select sputtering emerging markets like Russia and Brazil.

"Oil demand growth is alive and well," he writes in a recent note. "We think that with hindsight this winter will look like a dip in an otherwise still unfolding fairly strong growth trend that is partly fueled by the ongoing economic recovery of in North America and Europe and longer standing trends across key emerging market economies."

Oil, Gold & Silver Prices - Page 11 Empty Oil slips to one-month low on unexpected U.S. demand drop

on Tue Apr 05, 2016 5:48 pm
Message reputation : 100% (3 votes)
Oil slipped to a one-month low on Tuesday after a surprise fall in gasoline demand in the United States, the world's largest oil consumer, and on doubts whether oil producers can agree an output freeze to dampen a global supply glut.

U.S. gasoline demand, one of the strongest pillars supporting oil consumption, fell in January for the first time in 14 months, U.S. Energy Information Administration data showed.

The world's largest oil producers are due to meet in Doha on April 17 to negotiate an output freeze, but a jump in Russian oil production to a 30-year high in March has cast doubt over the chances of an output cap being agreed.

Brent crude, the global oil price benchmark, was down 26 cents at $37.43 (26 pounds) a barrel at 1000 GMT, its lowest since March 4.

U.S. futures fell by 21 cents to $35.49, also a one-month low.

Oil, Gold & Silver Prices - Page 11 Empty Oil futures jump on output freeze hopes; glut hurts physical prices

on Wed Apr 06, 2016 4:06 pm
Message reputation : 100% (2 votes)
Crude futures jumped on Wednesday as hopes for an agreement among exporters to freeze output underpinned the market, although persistent global oversupply and Iran's plans to boost production pressured physical oil prices.

Oil futures recovered from one-month lows to end the previous session up after the Kuwaiti governor for the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), Nawal Al-Fuzaia, said there were "positive indications an agreement will be reached" on output during a producer meeting scheduled for April 17 in Qatar.

U.S. crude futures CLc1 jumped over a dollar, or almost 3 percent, to a high of $36.92 per barrel before easing to $36.76 per barrel at 0646 GMT. International Brent futures LCOc1 rose as high as $38.64 before easing to $38.41 a barrel, still up 54 cents from their last settlement.

Oil, Gold & Silver Prices - Page 11 Empty NYU Graduates Seeking $11 Billion of Gold

on Wed Apr 06, 2016 5:43 pm
Message reputation : 100% (3 votes)
At Blyvooruitzicht, a 77-year-old gold mine southwest of Johannesburg, almost everything had been stolen except gold-bearing ore in the looting after the operation was closed in 2013.

Now, New York University graduates Bastiat Viljoen, 31, and his brother Dane, who was an intern at Goldman Sachs Group Inc., want to revive the ailing mine, which they say may contain 9 million ounces of gold, worth almost $11 billion at current prices. They are partly financed by South African mining entrepreneur Peter Skeat.

With their backgrounds, the Viljoens and their partners would look more at home in Silicon Valley than South Africa’s rust belt of aging gold mines, some of the deepest and most dangerous in the world. The challenge at Blyvooruitzicht, which means happy prospect in Afrikaans, is formidable: to rebuild a mine and win over a restive local community, who described the area as a war zone when it was overrun by thieves and illegal miners after falling into liquidation in 2013, Johannesburg’s Sunday Times newspaper reported in 2014.

Oil, Gold & Silver Prices - Page 11 Empty Is the oil price-GDP link broken?

on Sun Apr 10, 2016 11:02 am
Message reputation : 100% (2 votes)
By February 2016, the price of oil had fallen to about 30 USD —from about 100 USD per barrel in 2014. There are three possible causes: real changes in supply, real changes in demand and changes in expectations regarding the future oil demand-supply balance.

Oil supply continued to increase in 2015, as US shale oil production was more resilient than previously thought, and countries like Iran returned to the market. In addition, OPEC, a cartel of oil exporters, is not restricting supply.

As a result, at the end of 2015, oil production had increased by about 3 percent compared to the 2014 average: from 86 to 88.5 million barrels per day. The International Energy Agency foresees that the world will be “awash in oil” in the near future[1]. This increasing supply put downward pressure on oil prices.
