Commodity outlook: Sell crude oil rise, by natural gas on dips

Base metals continued to trade flat for yet another session.|
Sep 26, 2019, 05.04 PM IST
Gold prices has been trading with a positive bias from the past few sessions due to the increase in uncertainty and weak US economic numbers. President trump commented that a deal to end a nearly 15-month trade war with China could happen sooner than people think and that the Chinese were making big agricultural purchases from the US.

Base metals continued to trade flat for yet another session as market participants refrained from taking big positions ahead of a week-long holiday in China starting October 1. Every time the market thinks a deal may not be too far away, prices pick up.
