    Ukraine crisis: could the gas be cut off?

    Angus Walker
    As Ukrainian forces retake territory occupied by pro-Russian militias, the crisis is heating up. Russia could retaliate by cutting off gas supplies to Ukraine and Europe. Around a third of Europe's gas comes from Russia with forty percent pumped through Ukraine.

    CME trading outage showed that man can still match the machine

    Just over a week ago, CME Group Inc suffered the worst-ever trading outage on the world's most important agricultural markets, plunging electronic screens into darkness and sending dozens of traders scrambling for Chicago's famous but now often deserted trading "pits".
    It seemed like an impossible task: replace the seamless efficiency of an electronic trading screen with hand signals and guttural shouts to execute clients' orders to trade corn, wheat or cattle during the "close", often the busiest time of the day.
    But a Reuters analysis of CME trading data on the day of the outage, April 8, showed they largely succeeded in replacing the machines in at least some markets despite the difficulties of suddenly using floor trading skills that have mostly died out.

    Traders are worried about being caught short in the crude oil market at the moment. This continue to support both WTI and Brent with the North Sea variety now trading back up to 110 USD/barrel for the first time in six weeks. Rising supply from Libya and the slowing demand from China are not front page news at the moment while the Ukraine crisis continue. In the US crude inventories are expected to rise again but falling gasoline inventories due to strong demand and specifics related to Cushing continue to support WTI Crude.

    Gold has been on the defensive during Asian trading following a very ugly day yesterday. The news that Ukrainian forces had launched special operations and Putin's warning about a civil war only helped to stabilize the price and not attract new buying. For now the market is back in neutral after the positive sentiment built up over the past week was wiped out in a matter of minutes. The change in sentiment has been driven by improved US economic data this week but also a report from the World Gold Council yesterday did some damage as it estimated that China may have 1,000 tons of gold tied up in trade financing deals. This puts into doubt the future demand from China should the government intensify its attempt to crackdown on using commodities to raise finance. Resistance is today's pivot at 1304.6 followed by 1313. Support at 1293 and 1282

    Yesterday's price action proved that 1300 is NOT a level to watch in Gold. Far more important technical levels are 1285 and 1305, then 1314 above that, where I'd be looking to short a rally today.
