On Wednesday, oil attempted to rally on the back of a weaker dollar and surging gold prices but at first found it difficult to do so. The Department of Energy numbers, taken by themselves, were slightly bullish. The trade had been looking for a build or increase in crude stocks of 1.5 million barrels and the increase was only 1 million barrels.  Gasoline saw a build of 300,000 barrels versus an expected increase of 1 million barrels. Distillates stocks saw a decrease of 529,000 barrels while the trade had been looking for stock levels to remain unchanged from the previous week. In a bigger time frame, the trading pattern itself remains negative with lower lows and lower highs. Also, crude oil's performance considering the weakness of the dollar and the parabolic advance of gold remains generally disappointing.  As the day unfolded, crude tracked the gold higher, however and finished out the session in the top end of the range.

Gold continued to advance in price over the past five sessions while silver remained virtually at similar prices from a week ago. The perception of a continually weakening dollar is a gold market positive while news that Dubai World, that government’s holding company, is struggling with a $59 billion repayment was also supportive to gold. Dubai World is seeking to delay repayment of all its debt and extend maturities of this debt including 3.52 billion of Islamic bonds due for repayment December 14. On this news, credit default prices soared. Dubai has $4.3 billion in interest payments due next month and another 4.9 billion in first quarter of 2010. The possible inability to satisfy this repayment is a positive for the gold.  Another positive for the gold was the intervening holiday period as players don't want to worry about short positions in the metal over a long weekend. Relative strength in gold at 84 in gold is certainly an indication that the market is  overbought while the market has yet to show other classical technical signs that would imply an intermediate trend reversal is about to unfold.

Mar Sugar                                              22.56                              23.21

Money flow in sugar remains negative while most fundamental stories remain bullish. A story that came out on Wednesday indicated that sugar may jump 36% 29 year highs because of drought damaged crops in India. Over the past year sugar has almost doubled in price. Market action remains negative however so fundamental news has probably already been baked into prices.

Money flow in coffee remains negative.

Cash market prices in soybeans moved closer to futures prices as farmers stepped up physical sales into a rising market. The weak dollar continues to support price levels for soybeans while it could be said that January futures are having trouble piercing resistance between 10.60 to 10.75.  Back on November 23, there was a huge price rejection day as prices traded as high as 10.66 only to close at 10.42.

Money flow in wheat remains negative. Wheat was higher on Wednesday for the first time more than a week on the belief that demand will improve as we head into the end of the year. Iraq was a buyer of hard red winter wheat over night. The chart pattern in wheat remains negative however with obvious chart resistance at six dollars a bushel.

Corn was also higher on Wednesday after being down for five straight sessions. Market sees good resistance at $4.20 a bushel with chart support at $3.80 a bushel.
