Crude Oil prices ended lower yesterday after U.S Oil Inventories rose by 7.3M barrels. Lately this figure made little impact over Crude Oil prices but yesterday it came quite high compared with expectations of a 1.4M drop.
Demand for durables goods which also came surprisingly lower added to worries that demand for Oil would decrease in the near future as manufacturing declines. Crude Oil price might decline further in the short term if economic figures continue to deteriorate. Investors are worried about a possible double dip, meaning a renewed recession.
Gold price rebounded slightly during yesterday trading session. During the day it reached as low as $1156.25, but thereafter recovered and is currently trading at $1165 Gold price dropped after inflation worries began to fade and analysts begin to worry about another recession or economic slow down.
