    COT: Broad-based but fading dollar selling in week to Jan 16
    Broad-based dollar selling, but on a smaller scale than the previous two weeks, helped increase the non-commercial dollar short to $11.5 billion in the week to January 16. A small reduction in the record euro long and JPY short covering were the two main drivers with additional buying of AUD and MXN also seen.

    The International Energy Agency has released its monthly Oil Market Report. Just like Opec in their report yesterday they have once again raised non-Opec production growth siting explosive growth in the US with additional barrels coming from Brazil and Canada. It highlights the potential risk to current prices given the impact on non-Opec producers ability to increase production. The next question is whether demand growth will begin to see adjustments with crude oil trading at a three year high.
    In our Q1 outlook released yesterday i highlighted these risks and together with the record speculative long we see the oil market risk skewed towards lower prices this quarter.

    Gold taking full advantage of current dollar weakness — #SaxoStrats
    Gold has now moved within striking distance of the next area of resistance. Despite overstretched momentum indicators a correction remains elusive at this stage with gold being supported by continued dollar weakness and steady real yields amid rising inflation focus. Tail end protection against the risk of a stock market correction also seen as a factor.
