    Blow by Blow



    Base metals,




    Gold advanced the most in more than two weeks amid speculation that China, the

    worlds biggest consumer, will take more measures to bolster the economy, boosting

    demand for the precious metal as a store of value.

    The Peoples Bank of China plans to temporarily waive a requirement for lenders to

    set aside reserves for some deposits, people with knowledge of the matter said. Gold

    surged 70 percent from December 2008 to June 2011 as central banks increased

    money supply on an unprecedented scale. Gold has rebounded almost 6 percent from

    a four-year low reached in November as China lowered interest rates last month to

    spur economic growth and Japan expanded its unprecedented stimulus program. The

    moves rekindled concern that global inflation could rise even as U.S. consumer costs

    stay below the Federal Reserves goal. Speculation that China will do more to support

    the economy is creating demand for gold. At some point with all this money in the

    system, we could see some concern about inflation. Gold futures for February delivery

    climbed 1.9 percent to settle at $1,195.30 an ounce at 1:40 p.m. on the Comex in New

    York, the biggest gain for a most-active contract since Dec. 9. Prices declined 1.9

    percent in the previous three sessions.

    Natural gas slumped below $3 per million British thermal units in New York for the

    first time since 2012 on speculation that record production will overwhelm demand

    for the heating fuel.

    Futures settled at the lowest in 27 months and have plunged 26 percent in

    December, heading for the biggest one-month drop since July 2008, as mild weather

    and record production erased a surplus to year-ago levels for the first time in two

    years. Temperatures will be mostly above average in the eastern half of the U.S.

    through Dec. 30.

    Natural gas for January delivery fell 2.3 cents, or 0.8 percent, to settle at $3.007 per

    million Btu on the New York Mercantile Exchange. Futures touched $2.973, the

    lowest intraday price since Sept. 26, 2012. Volume was 54 percent below the 100-day

    average for the time of day at 2:32 p.m. Gas dropped 13 percent this week, a fifth

    straight weekly decline.

    Time Since 2012.

    Expectations of

    Weak Chinese

    Data Squeeze


    Copper got squeezed on the expectations that the Industrial data from China due to be

    released tomorrow would remain weak. China consumes more than 40 percent of

    Copper and the debacle in its demand can crumble the non ferrous metals especially


    Meanwhile, the volumes remained laggard as the traders still remained on holidays

    due to Christmas. Gains in Dollar were troubling Dollar denominated currencies. In

    foreign exchange markets, US Dollar remained on the higher side of the spectrum

    compared to Euro.

    The Dollar is now at 28 months highs against the Euro forcing traders to bet lower on

    the commodities like Copper. These commodities have also faced crisis on account of

    growing expectations of supplies in coming days. This month, U.S. gross domestic

    product rose 5.0% in the third quarter, exceeding expectations for a growth rate of

    4.3% and up from 3.9% in the three months to June. On MCX, Copper was trading at Rs

    405.6 per kg, up 0.33 percent. The prices are expected to move lower but not

    significantly as the volumes are not progressing forward indicating lack of volatile
