Commodities have been among most well-known assets in 2016. However, natural resources including oil and copper are at great risk, near term losses in the absence of any real improvement in the markets.

Here are some updates for the most common and well-traded commodities for today:

Crude Oil

Crude prices dropped on Tuesday as concerns over a rebound since Friday is declining out and as traders shifted their focus to United States inventory data, as markets also expect for more hikes in record highs.

United States crude oil futures slipped 1.52% or 60 cents to $38.79 per barrel after closing the last session to a plunge of 7 cents at $39.39 per barrel. As for Brent crude, it dipped 74 cents to $40.14 per barrel.
