Many experts are saying that these corrections in oil are related to it’s inventory but I would like to relate it with stock market. If stock market rebounds from here oil price will also be going up.
Oil may can make a little more correction but if dollar gives support it can again move upward. At 89 oil gets a good short-term support. But the rate hike episodes those are due in many countries, unless those are cleared, it will not be good to assume a long up move in oil from here.
I see more down side in Gold from here. I am not sure but sometime I feel all the action is now shifting into Silver this may be one of the main cause of this type of negative performance of Gold. Economies are improving their positions so they are shying away from Gold. The only hope right now I see for Gold is the use of gold as an inflation hedge.
