    Bullion market live updates: Perspective by Colin Shah, MD, Kama Jewelry on ‘Performance of Diamond Exports’

    “We are in a wait and watch situation for the revival of diamond exports. The last one and a half year has been of a constant economic turmoil for the Indian diamonds industry. The major blow for the industry was owing to the constant ongoing geo-political crises starting from Russia-Ukraine war to Israel-Hamas conflict. The volatility is caused by the subdued sentiment in the major Indian diamonds importing markets, the USA and China along with the growing preference for lab-grown diamonds in the international markets. 

    While the Indian diamond exports are yet to get ashore, we definitely expect the tide to be in our favour in the long haul. The exports will start to see some relief by the end of CY2024 on the downward trajectory of the rates by US Fed and reduced inflationary risks. While the market for lab-grown diamonds will co-exist with its natural counterpart, we definitely expect to see some light at the end of the tunnel for corrections in natural diamond exports.”

    Commodities Market Live Today: Gold scales to record high on expectations of US interest rate cuts in June: MOFSL’s Manav Modi

    Manav Modi, Analyst, Commodity and Currency, MOFSL: -

    Gold scaled a record high moving further above $2,100 in a rally sparked by growing bets for a U.S. interest rate cut in June and on safe-haven demand due to the conflict in the Middle East. A wider robust fundamental backdrop added support, including strong physical demand in Asia and central bank purchases. Dollar index and US 10 Yields have been very resilient during this volatility in commodities market, hovering around the 104 and 3.2% mark. The Fed chair Powell’s two day congressional testimony will be closely watched for more clarity on US interest rate path. Bets for a rate cut in June Fed meeting has increased from 40% to ~55% in a month. Gold which is looked as a store of value during times of political and financial uncertainty, has climbed by over $300 since the Israel-Hamas war. However, updates regarding cease fire and an ease off in the war will be important to keep an eye on. US Services PMI and factors data were reported lower than expectations in the previous session. After series of weaker economic data last week focus now shifts to US labour market data scheduled this week, which if reported lower than expectations it could further increase gains for bullions.

    Market live news: Here’s what Ravindra Rao, Head Commodity Research, Kotak Securities, about commodity market trends

    WTI Crude oil futures declined for the second straight day amid demand concerns from US and China. The latest data from US, the factory orders, ISM Manufacturing and Services PMIs all pointed to signs of slowing economic activity and weighed on the demand outlook from the world’s largest oil consumer. 

    Also, lack of strong stimulus signals from top crude importer China after the country set a growth target of “around 5%” for 2024 weighed on sentiments. API inventory data released earlier today showed that stocks of crude oil in the US rose by 400 thousand barrels during the previous week and investors keenly await EIA data which is expected to show to show a buildup of 2.4 million barrels.

    COMEX Gold prices rose to $2150.5 per troy ounce on Tuesday, $2 shy of the record high touched in December, as weak economic data from US raised alarms about an economic slowdown and added to rate cut bets this year. Data released yesterday showed the ISM Services PMI fell to 52.6 in February 2024 from a four-month high of 53.4 in January, while the factory orders fell by 3.6% m/m in January, the biggest decrease since April 2020. 

    US 10-year treasury plunged to a three week low, boosting the appeal for the non-yielding yellow metal. For the day, markets will be watchful of US JOLTs job opening, ADP employment change and Powell’s testimony. Caution ahead of Powell’s testimony might take some steam off the yellow metal.

    Precious metals: Gold rules above $2,120, Silver reverse gains on profit booking

    Gold maintained above $2,120, boosted by rising forecasts on a US interest rate cut in June, while safe haven demand from the West Asia crisis further tipped the scales in bullion’s favour. 

    According to the CME FedWatch tool, traders believe the Fed will begin reducing rates in June with a 68% probability. Fed President Raphael Bostic stated that he believes it will be appropriate for the Fed to approve two quarter-point rate reduction by the end of the year. 

    Physical gold demand in India was sluggish as rising local costs dampened sentiment and led buyers to postpone purchases, while premiums in top consumer China fell.

    Silver prices

    Silver prices reversed gains on profit booking after rising on prospects of the Fed cutting interest rates this year. The downturn in US manufacturing and deteriorating consumer mood caused investors to increase their wagers on the first Fed rate cut in June, which increased the appeal of keeping non-yielding assets. 

    Global silver demand is expected to rise by 1%, driven mostly by a projected record high in industrial demand and a revival in jewellery and silverware consumption. Industrial demand is predicted to increase by 4% to a record 690 million ounces, above last year’s peak.

    India’s crude oil imports from its traditional source, Saudi Arabia, inched up to a four month high in February 2024 at more than 8,33,590 barrels per day (b/d).
