Hedge funds and money managers raised their bullish positions on U.S Crude in the latest week as oil prices surged on improved demand outlook after the U.S. delayed tariffs on Chinese goods. 

Meanwhile funds and money managers trimmed their bullish bets on comex gold and cut net long positions in silver contracts in the latest week.
