MCX Commodity Market News Updates Today 28 March 2013

Bullion: Gold futures were trading up on the local bourses tracking the COMEX futures that came under pressure after investors booked profits ahead of the Easter holidays this week. In the short term, the gold price is likely to be driven largely by news of developments in Cyprus. Silver futures were down on local exchanges due to weakness in COMEX futures. On COMEX, silver futures fell tracking the weakness in base metals. 

Metals: Base metals on MCX were trading lower tracking the same movement in the LME. Base metals are mostly lower on the London Metal Exchange Wednesday, drifting in thin trade as euro-zone jitters continue to depress investor sentiment.

Energy: Domestic crude oil futures were trading higher tracking gains in benchmark contracts on the New York Mercantile Exchange. The U.S. Energy Information Administration said commercial crude-oil stockpiles rose by 3.3 million barrels last week, surprising analysts that had expected a more modest 700,000-barrel increase and sending total stocks to a nine-month high of 385.9 million barrels.
