Intermarket Confirmation For Interest Rates
In recent weeks we have witnessed rates break above 1.40% and crude oil achieve its highest level since 2014. One of many missing pieces for the intermarket puzzle is the Copper/Gold ratio, which has been chopping sideways since risk assets peaked back in May. This week, we got an upward resolution, which suggests that base metals will continue to outperform precious metals. But it also suggests we’re entering an environment conducive to higher rates and higher prices for commodities, in general. This is a constructive pattern breakout that supports the global growth and reflation narratives.
