Commodities Are Cooling

Commodity prices are cooling off for the past few trading sessions and this is a very welcome sign with regards to overall inflation scenario. Also with concerns of U.S. economy slowing down because of lower consumer spending and weak housing sales and serious credit squeeze in the U.S. mortgage market, commodity prices have began to ease of substantially from their recent highs.

However crude oil is still trading above U.S.$70 per barrel for the past few weeks and is a major concern.
