Crude Oil Tanks on Speculation of Supply From the US and Japan. Will WTI  Continue to

Crude oil went aggressively south on Friday and WTI has traded below US$ 75 a barrel in Asian trade today.

Japanese media are reporting that there is a possible Japan-US joint statement being prepared for an announcement in the coming days about the release of strategic petroleum reserves. China is also believed to be considering such a move.

China’s PBOC left the 1 and 5-year loan prime rate unchanged at 3.85% and 4.65% respectively. There had been commentary around a possible easing.

Currencies opened the week with AUD and NZD outperforming, while EUR, GBP, CHF and JPY weakened. The Euro has become vulnerable due to Covid restrictions rising again.

On Friday, the USD index (DXY) moved up toward the recent high and has held those levels today. The ‘big dollar’ was aided by Fed speakers Bullard, Clarida and Waller voicing hawkish views on the pace of tapering.

APAC equities were mixed in the Asian session with Korea’s Kospi index the best of the bunch, rising over 1.5% at one stage after solid trade data.

The market is awaiting a decision from US President Joe Biden on who will be the next leader of the Federal Reserve Bank. The race is between the incumbent, Jerome Powell and Governor Lael Brainard.

The White House has previously indicated that a decision will be made before the Thanksgiving holiday this Thursday. The President is due to deliver a speech on Tuesday on the economy and inflation. Speculation is rife that an announcement will be made then.

Later today, there will some home sales data from the US and a number of ECB speakers will be hitting the wires.

 
 

CRUDE OIL TECHNICAL ANALYSIS

WTI oil broke below the 55-day simple moving average (SMA), a previous low and a Fibonacci support level on a move lower last week.

On Friday and again on Monday, it bounced off a previous low at 74.96 that could continue to provide support. Further down there might be support at the pivot points of 73.14 and a previous low at 69.39. The latter currently coincides with the 200-day SMA.

On the topside, the 10 and 34-day SMAs may offer resistance before the previous highs at 81.81, 84.88 and 85.41.

    • Commodity Market Elliott Wave Analysis for Bitcoin, Bonds, Yields, USD/ DXY, Gold, Silver, Iron Ore, Copper, Uranium, Crude Oil, Natural Gas, Corn, Wheat, Soybeans, Coffee, Cocoa. Commodity Market Elliott Wave Analysis Update: Identifying the crucial turn in the USD is paramount in our analysis. However, the challenge lies in interpreting the upward movement of the USD DXY, as it can be construed in multiple ways. To gain clarity on the DXY, I examine the 10-year Yields, which indicate further upside potential. Concurrently, TLT Bonds suggest continued downside momentum. Consequently, Gold, Silver, and base metals remain susceptible to selling pressure. Additionally, the Crude oil market exhibits an upward trajectory, aligning closely with the movement of the USD DXY. Notably, Forex pairs, particularly the AUDUSD, demonstrate a direct correlation due to the interconnectedness of commodity dollars. In summary, the market pivot necessary for trading has yet to materialize and may not occur until mid-March 24. Bitcoin: Wave iv) has concluded, and Wave v) appears poised towards 55k. Dollar: Expectations point to an increase in both the Dollar and Yields, with Bonds likely to decline. Gold and Silver: Currently experiencing a corrective rally. Crude oil: Favorable for long positions in crude, while shorting gas remains advisable. Video Chapters 00:00 Bitcoin (BTC) 03:28 US Dollar Index, DXY / TLT Bonds.

    • Yeah, I think it's the mechanism behind the BGB price trend. This could go farther than one would expect. So I'll be trying to add it to my pf to help boost its healthiness in the future.
    • I don't think we can still take part in the airdrop but buying it could be the best option particularly as the market seems to be helping to create a good entry price.
