Precious metals and crude oil price trends
Last Friday, affected by the panic impact of the variant epidemic in South Africa, the US strategic reserve dumped its reserves, which drove the release of crude oil reserves from many countries to the market, affecting the crude oil market supply, suppressing the plummet of crude oil prices to a certain extent, falling risk commodities, and highlighting the function of precious metals for hedging and hedging. , As the mood eased, the price of precious metals fell slightly.
The minutes of the November FOMC meeting announced by the Federal Reserve, the expectation of “early interest rate hikes” and the accelerated reduction of debt purchase expectations rose, and precious metal prices were suppressed to a certain extent last week. On Friday, the South African new crown virus variant news surface, superimposed on the crude oil reserve news surface, triggered a downward shift in risky assets, boosting the hedging demand for precious metals.
On the whole, the monetary policies of various governments have a tendency to reduce stimulus measures, and interest rate hikes tend to push up the yield of public bonds and increase the opportunity cost of holding non-interest-bearing asset gold; as the panic of the epidemic disappears, the precious metal market has pulled back sharply today. It is expected that the upside of precious metal prices will be narrowed in the short term, with weak and fluctuating prices dominated.
