“Some dip-buying is coming back aggressively as the volatility index drops. Also, some good buying as the short-term U.S. (interest) rate curve is easing off a bit,” said Stephen Innes, APAC trading head for OANDA.
“(Prices are) well above major support and appetite is coming back, with longer-term traders still holding and steadily buying small clips from this morning Comex open.”
