The breaks were being slightly tapped perhaps a cautious move in anticipation of the day’s heavy load economic data dump and over 201 earning reports some from Tilray one of the largest medical marijuana producers. These reports may be dismal in outlook.


Many analysts conclude the commodities are trading sideways, which seems to be the case although with a bit of observation and agility one could actually maneuver quite well. As a decent number of traders are noted able to maintain a Positive ROI account while being consistent avoiding aggressive trading strategies for now.  

  • Oil: The American Petroleum Institute, API report Tuesday revealed only a draw of nearly 2.2 million barrels not enough to sustain upwards trends. with global Oil demand diminishing, a clear and present danger making headlines, it is doubtful if the day’s Crude Oil Inventories Report will provide any significant boost with the EIA, US Energy Information Administration report due.  WTI price was seen contained in a range between 56-24 -56.84 down 1.26% from the previous sessions close at 57.10 (i.e. Our predictions were spot-on). At 56.38 by the time of print 12:50 GMT. We did not say there will not be a further downside though. Hedge your positions and brace for the ride.
  • Gold: Speculators seem to be amongst the most satisfied especially all those that bought in when levels were crawling below the 1400 levels. It’s sometimes crazy how some have turned their accounts and fortunes on timing! The 13month range between 1,201.3 – 1,545.95 says it all. Caught ranging between 1,505.05 – 1,522.05 anything is possible, however in next few months Gold might be heading to the 1,600 thresholds. Today with the markets worried we may see more bets on Gold perhaps back up to 1,528.00 +
