Market Overview
Gold prices are correcting slightly but silver
continues to outperform gold. U.S Q1 GDP
forecasts are now near 0.2% implying the
Fed will wait longer before it raises rates.
This will continue to underpin precious
metals in the short to medium term
Base metals trade mixed today as a
weaker dollar supported prices. Weaker
U.S. housing data may however cap some
of the gains today. The global zinc market
saw a larger surplus of 48,400 tonnes in
February compared with a surplus of
17,400 tonnes in January
Crude oil prices continue to trade lower as
the workers strike in Kuwait ended and US
API inventories rose more than forecast.
EIA data later today will provide further
