Crude oil price dip as trade tension looms between US-China. Trend volatile.

Review
Yesterday, Crude oil prices slips in international market WTI Crude settled at $61.40 while Brent settled at $69.79 per barrel. At MCX Crude oil settled negative at 4264 per barrel with the loss of 1.89%. After a sharp recovery from lower levels on Monday, crude oil prices slips again yesterday as trade tensions looming between US-China and which is indicating for lower global demand. But U.S. sanctions on Iran and Venezuela is balancing oil in international markets. The United States re-imposed sanctions on Iran in November last year, demanding all countries stop importing oil from the country. Iran has said it will defy the sanctions and continue to export oil. Most analysts expect its crude export to fall to little more than 500,000 barrels per day, down from around 1 million bpd in April, as governments largely bow to American pressure. Washington has also slapped sanctions on Venezuelan oil exports, further disrupting crude supply. We expect crude oil to show strength and will test resistance of $62.50. Crude oil is having support at $61.20-60.80 and resistance at $61.90-62.50.

Base metals slips; Copper head towards February low as trade tension loom. Trend volatile.

Review
Yesterday, base metal prices settled mixed in international market. 3M LME copper settled at $6158 per metric ton down by 1.33% from previous close. Base metal prices shows volatility in yesterday’s trading session as trade tension loom between US-China. Copper prices fell on Tuesday towards 2-1/2 month lows hit last week on worries about demand after U.S. President Donald Trump said he would raise tariffs on Chinese goods before U.S-China trade talks. The sell-off on the LME is a delayed reaction to Trump's comments over the weekend about higher tariffs, one copper trader said, adding that a break of the 200-day moving average around $6,190 had fuelled downward momentum. We expect base metal remain volatile and any positive comment from US-China trade official will support prices in international markets. Weakness in rupee will support prices in domestic markets. Today, Copper is having support around 427-424 while resistance at 435-441. Nickel will trade in a range of 824-858, Zinc will trade in a range of 212-220, and Lead will trade in a range of 128-133 while Aluminium trade in a range of 144-149.

Lower arrival in domestic mandies due to Akshay Tritya and parliamentary elections, and weakness in rupee support agriculture commodities in domestic markets.
