- Commodities broadly see strong gains as Treasury yields slide and the USD loses some of its shine, with an additional boost for crude oil coming on speculation that OPEC+ could cut production by more than 1mbpd in what would be the largest reduction since the pandemic. A final decision is to be made on Wednesday.
- WTI is +4.8% at $83.29 with a session high of $84.56. It cleared the 20-day EMA of $87.26, opening the 50-day EMA of $87.26. Most active strikes in CLX2 today have been $90/bbl and then $100/bbl calls.
- Brent is +4.2% at $88.72 with a session high of $89.82. It cleared the 20-day EMA of $88.93 and moved closer to the 50-day EMA of $92.24.
- Gold is +2.2% at $1696.7 having cleared two resistance levels, the higher being $1688.0 (Sep 21 high) to leave $1707.1 (Sep 14 high) open, and in turn testing what was deemed only a short-term corrective bounce.
