Global commodity prices are on track for their biggest weekly rally in more than 50 years, as the war in Ukraine triggers a supply crisis in raw materials.
While overnight, a fire broke out at Europe’s largest nuclear power plant in Ukraine after a Russian attack, causing Asian stocks and European futures to drop sharply.

During the early hours, the futures have broken support – retesting the December swing lows at 7,099. We have started to see a bit of a bounce as we head towards the opening bell.
