By Ole S. Hansen, Head of Commodity Strategy, Saxo Bank | August 18, 2019
Global growth concerns and ample supply of key commodities have been the main drivers behind the weakness seen across the sector so far this quarter. Precious metals remain the exception with gold responding strongly to the ongoing collapse in global bond yields.
The trade war between the US and China remains one of the main drivers behind global growth concerns. This in turn impacts the demand prospects for growth-dependent commodities ranging from crude oil and industrial metals to some agricultural products. As a result, the market has been “pumping and mostly dumping” as news from Washington and Beijing continued to alternate between hope and despair. Such volatile market conditions have not been helped by lower liquidity during the peak ......read more

Dubai, United Arab Emirates - 14, August 2019: The negative Q2 growth print is the perfect example of the power of credit impulse. However, contrary to an increasing number of market participants that consider the UK economy is already in recession that began in April, we think that Q3 GDP growth bounce is on the cards. We explain you why.
The UK growth is like a bouncing ball: in the first quarter, it grew by 0.5%, higher than the average of the G7 countries, and in the second quarter, it went into negative territory at minus 0.2%, rising fears that recession has started. This downturn resulted from factory shutdowns and the fallout from pre-Brexit stockpiling. However, more fundamentally, the disappointing Q2 growth print reflects the lack of new ......read more
