Broad based commodity weakness today
00:00, 30 August 2013
Broad based commodity weakness today after last nights UK Parliament vote against military action in Syria. US crude oil lower, while gold and silver prices slipping back with gold sliding back below $1,400 after yesterday's US GDP revision raised the prospects of the Fed tapering its asset purchase program in September. Equity markets slightly lower but subdued as European economic data continues to point to inherent weakness across the continent.
