MCX and COMEX Weekly Review
Gold prices were minor changed on Friday after resurgent United State nonfarm payrolls data that showed employment leaping from a 17-month low as milder weather boosted activity in sectors like construction. It was a good United State jobs number, yes. But more importantly, will it prompt the Fed to rethink its patient stance on
rate hikes? For investors in gold though, it raised the question of whether it may just be another thing to tilt the Federal Reserve, accused by some of being too dovish of late, the other way. Gold future for June delivery, traded on the Comex division of the New York Mercantile Exchange, settled the official trading session up $1.30, or 0.1%, at $1,295.60 per ounce.
Crude oil price rose 1.88%, after strong U. S jobs data; Shale Still in Focus
Crude oil price capped its longest winning streak in almost last 18 months as global supplies strained and positive United State economic indicators bolstered the demand outlook. Crude oil futures price gained 4.9 percent for the week, joining a U.S. stock-market rally that approached an all-time high on Friday. Already boosted by fresh signs of OPEC production cuts, crude was further buoyed by a monthly employment report that topped estimates. Friday’s
expectation was enough for traders to shrug off the biggest jump in American drilling activity since May 2018

International Market review
Earnings reporting season for 2019’s first quarter is getting under way and promising to bring renewed volatility to stocks in Canada and the U.S., as some forecasters are expecting year-over-year earnings growth to dip into negative territory. To add to the anxiety, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) cut its global growth forecast, and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) said its leading economic index fell in February to its weakest reading since this expansion began in 2009. But major equity markets mostly held their ground as improving economic data in the U.S. and China – and progress in their trade talks – continued to ease fears of outright recession. Notably, while the IMF was downgrading its global outlook, it raised its 2019 forecast for China.
Most European equity markets finished slightly down. Investors were troubled by weaker trade data from Germany, and by U.S. threats of tariffs on $11 billion of imported goods because of subsidies to aircraft maker Airbus. The potential move would be in addition to previously threatened tariffs on European autos. As expected, due to the economic uncertainty, the European Central Bank made no changes to its monetary policy or forward interest rate guidance at its meeting. But better economic data from Italy suggested that the county’s brief recession may have ended. U.K. data was also better than expected but may be explained by stockpiling in anticipation of Brexit.
An agreement to extend the deadline to October 31 avoided Britain crashing out of the European Union this week in a “hard Brexit”, but may be worse economically in the long-run as it drags out the uncertainty. Stock markets in Asia also finished mostly in the red, while Japan made a small gain.
