    WCU: Commodities fired up by fading dollar
    April was the best month for commodities since December 2010. A strong rally in oil, a speculative frenzy in China and continued demand for precious metals triggered a 7.5% return on the Bloomberg Commodity index.

The net-longs in silver and WTI crude oil hit a new record and an 11 month high respectively.

    Brent perkier than WTI, copper attempts a buy signal
    Brent crude oil is faring better than its US counterpart in clawing back from the lows reached this year, and it threatened to take out an important Fibonacci level ($37.39/barrel) on Friday. Gold is looking constructive, silver less clever, and copper is trying to send a buy signal. Meanwhile, there's not much to see in farm commodities.
