A floor in oil prices?

Oil prices remain under pressure as traders continue to price in a slower global economy next year and the prospect of deeper recessions. China’s efforts to reduce restrictions are probably preventing a much steeper decline in the oil price, although this won’t be without disruption as Covid spreads like wildfire throughout the country after such a long period of zero-Covid measures.

Then there’s also the pledge by the White House to restock the SPR once oil falls to around $70 a barrel, only a couple of dollars below where it is now, which could in theory put even a temporary floor under the price considering how much it’s been drawn down this year.

Gold awaiting the Fed meeting

Gold appears to be steadying ahead of the inflation data from the US and, of course, the Fed meeting next week. The jobs report was a setback and one that could stand in the way of another break higher before the Fed meeting. The inflation data tomorrow and on Wednesday could give the yellow metal a boost but it’s the fear of entrenched inflation that could nudge the terminal rate higher. Investors will want to hear what the Fed has to say on the nasty wages surprise last week.
