Headwinds remain strong for copper, industrial metals in 2020
02 January 2020
"Base metal prices are more likely to decline in 2020 than sustain gains from 4Q19, in our view. Compared with a year ago, Dr. Copper’s economic-outlook pendulum may have swung too far toward optimism vs. the pessimism seen at the onset of 2019. Sustaining the record-setting U.S. equities run appears to be a prerequisite for recovering base metals." For more information please press here.

Oil Soars as U.S. killing of Iran General Stirs fear of conflict
03 January 2020
"Oil jumped toward $70 a barrel in London after a U.S. airstrike ordered by President Donald Trump killed a top Iranian general in Iraq, intensifying fears of conflict in the world’s most important crude-producing region. Brent futures surged by more than 4% in busy trading on Friday to levels not seen since the attacks on Saudi Arabia’s oil facilities in September. The airstrike near Baghdad airport killed Qassem Soleimani, the Iranian general who led the Revolutionary Guards’ Quds force." For more information please press here.

What to expect from markets in 2020
31 December 2019
"No one saw this rally coming. In a year filled with poor economic data, trade headwinds and Brexit worries, European equities are ending on a high note, leaving all predictions in the dust with their biggest-in-a-decade gain. While many market participants say a repeat performance of 2019’s rally as unlikely, portfolio managers still see pockets of opportunities ranging from banking to energy shares, strong cash-generating companies to stocks with sustainable dividends." For more information please press here.

U.S. futures drop, havens jump on Mideast flare-up: Markets wrap
03 January 2020
"The risk-on sentiment that ushered in the new year came to an abrupt end on Friday as tensions between the U.S. and Iran escalated, sinking American equity futures with stocks and buoying haven assets including gold, the yen and Treasuries. Oil surged. Contracts for all three of the main U.S. gauges slumped after an American airstrike in Baghdad killed a top Iranian commander and the Middle Eastern country’s leader threatened “severe retaliation.” The VIX Index, a measure of expected equity price swings, jumped the most on a closing basis since August. The Stoxx Europe 600 Index also slid, though energy companies bucked the retreat after West Texas oil at one point rallied more than 4%." For more information please press here.

Gold, precious metals will need a good reason to stop advancing
02 January 2020
"Some combination of sustained dollar strength and lower stock-market volatility should be needed to hold back recovering gold prices, which elevates the metal’s inverse sensitivity to equity prices, in our view. Since the first Federal Reserve interest-rate hike in December 2015, gold has been anticipating a favorable end-game." For more information please press here.
