(July 6): Commodity investors will get critical insights into energy, metals and crop markets this week against a backdrop of better-than-expected economic data and countervailing concern over the jump in coronavirus infections. Global confirmed cases are now rising by well over 1 million per week, casting a pall over expectations raw materials demand will rebound.

The International Energy Agency leads the line-up with its monthly overview of the worldwide oil market as OPEC and allies ratchet back supplies. Crop traders will dissect the latest WASDE snapshot, with corn a particular focus. And metals markets are primed for more virus-related disruptions in Chile, which may aid copper, as well as signals of booming iron ore flows, which may hurt prices.

A brace of companies report, with numbers from Suedzucker AG, Europe’s top sugar producer, and major cocoa processor Barry Callebaut AG. And last but not least, San Francisco Federal Reserve President Mary Daly and Richmond Fed President Thomas Barkin take part on Tuesday in a discussion on the U.S. economy hosted by the National Association for Business Economics.
