OPEC+ to stick to production plans

The Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) and their allies (OPEC+) have concluded two days of discussion regarding the future of oil production on Thursday the 30th of June 2022.

At the group’s previous meeting (2 June 2022), OPEC+ had agreed to increase production by 648 000 barrels per day in July and then again in August. This being a noteable increase from the 432 000 barrels per day rise in output for June.

The OPEC+ meeting has seen an affirmation of the production increases suggested at the beginning of the month with no further changes guided.

The news has resulted in a slight selloff in Oil - Brent Crude prices, although this may also be attributed to global growth concerns currently prevalent in the marketplace.

Brent crude – technical view

The short-term rebound in Brent crude has started to fade and is looking to reverse in the near-term.

The black arrow marks yesterday’s candlestick pattern, commonly referred to as a gravestone doji in technical analysis term.

The pattern marks an intraday price reversal, suggesting the short-term end to a move higher and possible change in near-term direction. Should today’s candle close in negative territory it would suggest the confirmation of the reversal, with $106.00/barrel the initial downside support target from the move.

Traders who have been long into the rebound from oversold territory might consider locking in profits. Traders respecting the longer term uptrend still in place would, however, not consider the possible move lower as short trade opportunity. Instead our preference is to wait for weakness to play out before once again looking for long entry on a bullish price reversal closer to one of the lower support levels marked on our chart.

Only in the event that the short-term weakness in oil breaks the major lows between $98.90 and $95.50 per barrel, would we reassess our longer term trend bias for trades on the commodity.

    • Allow me to unveil the revolutionary Lifeform project – a groundbreaking development in the realm of virtual identities and avatars for the web3 world.   At its core lies a mind-bogglingly innovative concept. They've developed a state-of-the-art editor that empowers users to create hyper-realistic 3D virtual human avatars, which can serve as digital identities across the metaverse and web3 applications. Brace yourself for a staggering number – over 10 billion possible combinations of facial features and body details, all powered by the cutting-edge Unreal Engine 5, the very same technology behind blockbuster movies and top-tier video games. Impressive, isn't it? But here's the real kicker – these avatars aren't merely for virtual worlds. With Lifeform's DID solution, you can actually utilize your custom avatar as a login method and verified identity for any decentralized app or metaverse platform. It's an NFT-based digital ID that seamlessly grants you access to the entire web3 ecosystem. Remarkably, as early as March 2023, Lifeform had already become the most widely used dApp on the BNB Chain, boasting over 3 million monthly active users. This rapid adoption is a testament to the virtual identity concept's meteoric rise. On top of that, their AI analyzes user activity across blockchains, providing personalized service recommendations based on your crypto asset management strategies. It's a sleek, all-in-one web3 identity platform like no other. And the surprises don't end there. These avatars aren't limited to the metaverse; you can beam your virtual self into Zoom calls, Google Meet, online conferences – you name it. Your avatar mimics your movements and expressions in real-time, courtesy of their cutting-edge plugin. It's like being a real-life hologram! Lifeform is single-handedly bridging the gap between our physical and digital identities in an incredibly accessible manner.
