MARKET ROUNDUP
Precious metals prices edged up in quiet trading yesterday as weak U.S. retail sales cut into the dollar's gains ahead of Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke's Congressional testimony.

IN FOCUS
Holdings in the SPDR Gold Trust, the world's largest gold-backed exchange traded fund, stood at 1266.11 tonnes by July 16, down by 3.62 tonnes from the previous business day.

Holdings in the world's largest silver backed exchange-traded fund iShares Silver Trust stood at 9696.71 tonnes by July 16, unchanged from the previous business day. Gold experts have further cut back price forecasts for the metal this year after a sluggish first half, a quarterly Reuters poll showed on Monday, while gains in the dollar and a dearth of physical demand are likely to clip any attempted return to last September's record high for the rest of the year. Workers rescued after being trapped underground in a Waihi gold mine are in good health and happy, the general manager of the mine says. Rescue teams freed all 28 miners, some of whom were trapped for seven hours, after a fire broke out at 5am in a truck engine at Newmont Waihi Gold's Trio underground mine.

FUNDAMENTAL OUTLOOK
Precious metals prices are trading higher today ahead of Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke's Congressional testimony which is expected to provide clues on whether the central bank will launch more monetary stimulus. Gold looks good for the day.

MARKET ROUNDUP
Industrial metals price edged lower yesterday as a weak euro and worries over the euro zone debt crisis weighed, and as investors grew concerned over whether a presentation by the U.S. Federal Reserve chairman this week would yield any clues on monetary easing.

IN FOCUS
Copper junior Rambler Metals on Monday said it had successfully made the transition from producing an initial run of gold, to producing copper in concentrate, and had sold the first lot of 600 t from its Ming mine. National Aluminium Company (Nalco) has joined the fray along with a clutch of Japanese firms to operate a 2.25 lakhtonne smelter unit in Indonesia, said sources close to the development. Dia Bras achieved record-breaking production in the second quarter of 2012. The Company reached a total of 323,396 tonnes of ore processed (compared to 37,408 in 2011) of zinc from all operations, representing a 765% increase year-overyear. These substantial increases in production have resulted in record production figures in the second quarter and the first half of 2012. Anticipating possible untoward incidents anytime soon at the mothballed nickel refinery located in Nonoc Island off Surigao City, health authorities here are recommending the destruction of the old processing plant. Australian-based Mining giant BHP Billiton - the world's largest diversified miner - is considering a withdrawal from aluminum and nickel operations as part of a general retreat from non-profitable side projects by key mining players.

FUNDAMENTAL OUTLOOK
Industrial metals prices are trading higher on international bourses today. In the evening session we have the industrial production data to be released by the US. Any positive data reported is likely to support prices of industrial metals. Nickel in particular looks good for the day.

Crude oil tanker earnings on the major Middle East route slid to their lowest levels in nine months on Monday as a glut of vessels and slowing demand battered rates.

FUNDAMENTAL OUTLOOK
Crude oil prices are trading firm on NYMEX today. A positive industrial production data if reported by the US is likely to limit the downside in crude oil prices.

OPEC's petroleum exports jumped in value by 40 percent in 2011 year-on-year and the producers' GDP climbed 18 percent, according to their latest report, before a further increase in supplies this year that could bolster income further.

India's biggest buyer of Iranian oil, MRPL, has bought Azeri, Saudi and Emirati crude to replace imports from Iran in July and it may halt purchases from Tehran altogether as sanctions make shipments more difficult, industry sources said on Monday.
