Asian Markets

In the morning session, the Asian markets saw gains, with the Nikkei and Straits Times rising by each 0.5 percent.

Oil prices

As concerns about demand were raised by China’s failing real estate market, traders reevaluated the supply risk premium associated with the Middle East’s growing tensions, which resulted in a drop in oil prices of more than one dollar per barrel on Monday.

US West Texas Intermediate crude futures declined by $1.23, or 1.6 percent, to close at $76.78 per barrel, while Brent crude futures slid $1.15, or 1.4 percent, to settle at $82.40 a barrel.

Gold Prices

As demand for the safe-haven asset increased due to growing tensions in the Middle East, gold saw a rise on Monday. Meanwhile, investors were waiting for the Federal Reserve’s policy decision later this week for further hints regarding when the country may drop interest rates for the first time this year.

Spot gold was trading at $2,025.97 an ounce, up 0.4 percent. At $2025.4, U.S. gold futures ended the day 0.4% higher

US dollar

Tuesday saw the dollar move in narrow ranges compared to its main competitors as investors watched the Federal Reserve’s monetary policy decision for indications on when the American central bank could lower interest rates.

In the Asian morning, the dollar remained stable as traders exercised caution ahead of Tuesday’s two-day FOMC meeting.
