    Steen's Chronicle: War & Markets
    However unpalatable it may seem, the current escalation in wars and conflicts worldwide makes it necessary for us to examine geopolitical risk and particularly, how to measure it. Make no mistake, the real losers are the thousands of grieving families that have lost loved ones. But this new world order has many negative implications for the rest of us too.

    Head of Commodity Strategy / Saxo Bank
    Mixed day for commodities with geopolitics and US weather concerns supporting crude and crops while sugar and coffee at the bottom continue to correct lower.
    As i wrote earlier today the energy market is currently caught up between the outlook for increased supplies from Libya and rising US inventories on one hand and the Ukraine crisis on the other. Today focus on the latter has taken both crude oil higher by 1 percent as additional sanctions against Russia and new unrest in East Ukraine has attracted most of the attention.
    Soybeans and corn both trading higher with the bull spreads between old and new crop widening on both as old crop prices receives most of the attention.
    Gold remain rangebound and is back to 1300 USD/oz after finding support at 1287 earlier today. Just like oil the precious metals are torn between focusing on upcoming US data/events and geopolitics.
