    US inventory data due shortly at 16:30 CET. US Crude inventories are expected to rise for the 13th time in 14 weeks, this time by around 2.5 million barrels. Some focus on gasoline inventories after the price has risen to the highest since last August as refinery maintenance reduce supplies for a ninth straight week. The changing inventory levels between Cushing and PADD3 (Gulf of Mexico) could also trigger a reaction.

    E-trading pulls gold into forex units as commodity desks shrink

    Reuters
    The increasing use of technology on financial trading floors is driving a trend for banks to roll precious metals operations into their forex businesses as a separate unit from other commodities activities.
    Barclays on Tuesday followed similar moves by rivals Deutsche Bank, UBS, JPMorgan Chase & Co and Morgan Stanley by announcing that it would keep its gold trading business while hiving off most of its global commodities operations.
    The consolidation of interbank gold dealing and foreign exchange trading on electronic platforms is making it increasingly easy for forex traders to execute precious metals deals, allowing banks to ease cost pressures by moving the asset classes into a single business unit.

    sir, what are your thoughts on crude oil?

    WTI Crude oil under some relative price pressure today ahead of inventory data later this week which is expected to show another rise in US inventories. The crisis in Ukraine and the risk of escalating tensions between Russia and the West has interestingly triggered some speculation that Russia may not be in such a strong position despite their huge crude exports. JPM has been speculating how the US with its huge and currently by law non-exportable oil reserves could flood the market with oil if Russia should cut of supplies to the West. The bank in their analysis compares the situation with Saudi Arabia back in 1986 when they increased production rapidly and drove down the price in order to punish Russia over its war against Afghanistan. Should the US decide to deploy the same oil tactic they could see the price of prompt crude fall as low as 75 USD/barrel and this would seriously hurt Russia once again.

    The Brent benchmark backlash

    Ole Hansen
    Brent Oil is used as the benchmark for more than half of all global transactions but only a bit more than one percent originates from the four production sites which make up the benchmark.

    Correction: I mentioned half a billion contracts of Brent Crude traded daily instead of barrels of oil which is the correct measure.
