    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. Elsewhere, industrial metals lagged and the agricultural sector awaited a key report due next week.

    Head of Commodity Strategy / Saxo Bank
    Denmark
    Gold is currently enjoying its longest sustained uptick since August 2012 but the failure to break resistance at $1,223/oz means that a correction may be in store. At the moment, gold looks vulnerable below $1,194/oz.

    Gold: A perfect storm of supporting news has driven the yellow metal to a three-week high this am. The dollar, equities and bond yields are all trading lower while safe-haven demand related to the last 24 hours events in Yemen have also been lending support.
    Having retraced 38.2% of the January to March sell-off the next upside target will be the 50% retracement at $1225. Only a break below $1195 will change this current bullish momentum.

    Geo-political risk makes a return to oil markets following news that Saudi Arabia has launch airstrikes within Yemen. Crude oil jumped on the news adding to the gains that Yemen had already triggered yesterday.

    Why is this tiny oil producer important? Bloomberg writes:

    The nation shares a border with Saudi Arabia, the world’s biggest crude exporter, and sits on one side of a shipping chokepoint used by crude tankers heading West from the Persian Gulf. Global oil prices jumped more than 5 percent on Thursday after regional powers began bombing rebel targets in the country that produced less than Denmark in 2013.
