Silver gross longs hovering around August lows, gross shorts doubled.

In terms of speculative positioning, silver gross longs are hovering around August lows, while gross shorts have doubled over the course of the year as of May 16.Net Comex non-commercial positions as a percentage of open interest is low at just 9%. Only retail demand has bucked the trend, with strong coin sales. The US Mint reported sales of 4.087Moz in April, the highest since January 2012, but this alone is not sufficient to support prices. Silver prices have followed in the tracks of gold but, given its weak fundamentals, have endured additional pressure, tumbling to levels last reached in September 2010. Given the healthy supply backdrop, silver has struggled to draw support from either investor activity or industrial demand. Silver ETPs have held up relatively well compared with gold, with net redemptions of 148 tons in April, the first month of net outflows since November last year (155 tons). Total metal held in trust rests at 20,061 tons, 206 tons below the peak set earlier in the year. Flows have remained weak into May, albeit also at a slower pace than gold at 10 tons. China’s Silver imports were down by 25% y/y, to 195.98 tons in March, and exports rose by 44% y/y, to 109.9 tons, keeping China a net importer of silver.

Brent slips towards $103 on demand growth worries, stronger dollar.

Brent futures slipped towards $103 a barrel on Friday as disappointing US economic data revived worries over demand growth in the world’s biggest oil consumer, while a stronger dollar also pressured prices. Barring news on major supply disruption, the dollar will be a key driver for oil as investors increasingly expect the greenback’s recent surge to peter out. Brent crude had slipped 14 cents to $103.64 a barrel by 0321 GMT, with the June contract that expired in the previous session settling up 12 cents. It is expected to end the week unchanged. US oil slipped 6 cents to $95.11, after settling 86 cents higher. The contract is poised to end three straight weeks of gains. “The dollar will influence oil quite a bit over the next few sessions because at some point it will start to weaken as it has strengthened too much in recent days”. “All US economic indications in the last few days have been weak and that is raising doubts about demand.
