I don't understand why oil & gold stocks rose today. They have both been in a steady decline in the last week or so but both reversed commodity stocks reversed today.
My question is, why? Was it because of the futures price? (If so where do I find these prices?) Is it because the financials didn't fare well today so investors wanted to move their money elsewhere?
The news on tv just mentioned gold and oil commodities lost some ground, but then I see the commodities chart (on tv) and it shows them on the up in green territory. Now I'm really confused! If someone could answer this for me it would be a great help.
