Copper prices touched a 2 month low of $6,580 per tonne over concerns of slowdown of Chinese infrastructure spending. Build up of copper inventories was also the cause for further bearishness.

Expect Crude Oil to Trade Positive


Oil prices settled slightly lower on Wednesday after U.S. government data showed rising domestic crude production, a surprise build in U.S. stockpiles and a decline in monthly Chinese crude imports, a triple blow that was offset somewhat by rising tensions in the Middle East. The EIA also said crude stocks increased by 2.2 million barrels, shocking the market after analysts polled by Reuters had forecast a 2.9 million – barrel draw and industry group the American Petroleum Institute on Tuesday reported a decline of 1.6 million barrel. China’s October oil imports fell to just 7.3 million bpd from a near record – high of about 9 million bpd in September, according to data from the General Administration of Customs.

The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries’ 2017 World Oil  Outlook showed the group predicts demand for its crude will rise more  slowly than previously expected in the next two years, as higher prices  from its supply policy stimulate output growth from rival producers.

How Introduction of Options will affect Commodity Markets

Finally, the wait is over for Commodities Market as MCX is all set to launch Options in Gold in the month of October. This will be a game changer for the commodities market as it will result in the participation of new players in the market as it carries low risk with it as compares to Futures.

Let’s have a basic understanding of Option First.

An option is a financial derivative that represents a contract sold by one party (the option writer) to another party (the option holder). The contract offers the buyer the right, but not the obligation, to buy (call) or sell (put) a security or other financial asset at an agreed-upon price (the strike price) during a certain period of time or on a specific date (exercise date).

Main Advantage of Option over Future

In future trading, the trader is exposed to big losses whichever side of the contract you are on. If you have the obligation to buy an underlying security at a fixed price and the security moves significantly above that fixed price, then you could lose substantial sums. Conversely, if you have the obligation to sell an underlying security at a fixed price and the security moves significantly below that fixed price then you could experience sizable losses.

If you are writing options contracts and taking on an obligation to either buy or sell an underlying security at a fixed price, then you are exposed to similar risks. However, you can trade options purely by buying contracts and not writing them. This means that you can limit your potential losses on each and every trade you make to the amount of money you invest in buying specific contracts. Whenever you buy options contracts, the worst case scenario is that they expire worthless and you lose your initial investment.
