    The big bets are on for an oil and copper recovery
    While economists so often get things wrong, one has piqued my interest with a reasonably contrarian call on the mid-term rise in oil and copper, going out of his way to say these are the two commodities voted most likely to succeed.

    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.

US oil futures rose 4.5% to $51.43 a barrel, while gold futures added 0.7% to $1,205. The S&P/ASX 200 Index futures contract was unchanged at 5,885, and the NSW election could influence AUDUSD, as a Labor party win could add more volatility.
