Gold (XAU/USD) is declining for the second day in a row. The reason of such a dynamic is that investors have turned to stocks.
Crude stabilizes after abrupt dips
On Friday, crude managed to stabilize, following abrupt dips earlier this week, though they were still suppressed by evidence of an everlasting fuel glut notwithstanding efforts led by OPEC to tighten the market by simply holding back output.
Brent crude futures kept to $47.86 per barrel, staying intact from its previous close. It still puts Brent futures nearly 12% below its start on May 25, when an OPEC-led promise to reduce output was extended into 2018.
American West Texas Intermediate crude futures hit $45.63, also standing still from the previous close, though nearly 11% below May 25.
The tumble turned to be an outcome of oversupply notwithstanding the effort led by the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries to reduce nearly 1.8 million barrels a day of output until the first quarter of 2018.
Inventories of refined products move up notwithstanding the beginning of the high demand summer season.
Riskier currencies and stocks are in favor of investors. Surprisingly, gold rallies too. Let’s have a closer look.
Congratulations! Gold has just opened a new era... or, rather, reopened...
