    WCU: Commodity focus turns to Yemen
    Yemen was the big story of the week as a Saudi Arabian-led coalition attacked Hauthi rebels, sparking fears of a spike in tensions between Shiite Iran and its Sunni neighbours and triggering sharp gains for oil and precious metals.

A rising USD, at least until last Tuesday, combined with ample and rising supply of many key commodities have triggered this unprecedented exodus out of raw materials

    Today's Trade: ASX200 set to exceed 6000

    Trading Desk / Saxo Capital Markets
    Australia
    It’s a quiet week ahead for macro announcements although several Fed members will be giving speeches. The S&P/ASX200 continues to climb and is forming a strong uptrend, with expectations it could trade above 6,000 in the next few days. In commodities, copper recorded its largest rise in 22 months, up 3.5% to $6,045. Meanwhile, the Aussie dollar is likely to retest the key resistance level of 0.7850 as the USD continues to weaken.

The energy sector has also been hurt by the prospect of a continued rise in US inventories and the prospect of a deal with Iran, while precious metals have begun nervously looking ahead to next week's FOMC meeting.
