Over the past few days, commodity prices are showing record-break performance in the market. Although many reasons justify this price increase, the main one is the Russia-Ukraine war.
Despite the fact, that gold and palladium are going down nowadays yet there has been a positive increase in some commodities like Gold and Silver as well. So, let’s look at the commodity prices of 20 April and discuss each of them in detail.
1- WTI Oil
The Ukraine-Russia war has shown its impact on crude oil as well. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude oil has fallen to around 5% this week after the IMF has cut the growth outlook. Currently, it stands at 102.34 USD per Barrel in the oil market.
Moreover, oil prices have increased by 4.0% in the last week. Though from the price chart, we can see a major downfall but there is a prediction that the oil industry will continue to uplift in the upcoming days.
Not only this, the price charts have shown a 4.89% decrease in the prices as compared to the last week. Although the demand and supply of natural gas are high nowadays, its prices are decreasing at the same time.
While other commodities are having a tough time with their prices, gold is the one that has set up its eyes in the sky. With a tremendous increase of 2000 dollars, gold prices have been skyrocketing over a couple of days.
