Daily Commodities Trading Signals & Market Insights: February 26


- Oil Price Dynamics: Oil prices have seen a decline, with Brent crude at $81.27 a barrel and WTI at $76.14 a barrel. The strengthening of the U.S. dollar, driven by persistent high U.S. interest rates to combat inflation, is making oil more expensive for other currency holders, dampening demand.

- Market Sentiment: A recent Nvidia-led market rally has faded as expectations of prolonged high U.S. interest rates have bolstered the dollar, subsequently exerting downward pressure on commodity prices, including oil.

- Supply and Demand Balance: Oil prices fluctuate within the $70 to $90 range, influenced by the U.S. supply increase and China's wavering demand, despite OPEC+ supply cuts and ongoing geopolitical tensions.

- Geopolitical Risks: While geopolitical risks like the Yemeni Houthis' attacks on Red Sea shipping have only modestly impacted Brent prices, such events have led Goldman Sachs to raise its summer peak price forecast for oil to $87 a barrel.

- Gold Retreats Amid Rate Hike Fears: Spot gold has fallen to $2,032.32 an ounce, and gold futures to $2,041.85, as the market braces for continuous high U.S. interest rates. The focus is now on the upcoming U.S. PCE price index data, which may provide further inflation insights.

- Safe Haven Demand: Despite the downward trend, gold's losses are capped due to its status as a safe haven asset, with economic downturn fears in Japan and the UK, along with Middle East tensions, maintaining some demand.

- Industrial Metals Watch: Copper futures dipped to $3.8760 a pound, with the market's attention turning to China's PMI data, which could signal the country's economic recovery pace and impact copper demand.
