Crude Oil Price Rebound Emerges as US Output Holds Steady Coming into July

Recommended Posts


The price of oil appears to be reversing course head of the 200-Day SMA ($92.62) as it holds above the April low ($92.93), and crude may stage a larger rebound over the coming days as US production holds steady at the start of July.


The price of oil extends the rebound from the weekly low ($95.10) even as US inventories unexpectedly increase for the first time in three weeks, and crude may attempt to retrace the decline from the monthly high ($111.45) as the Relative Strength Index (RSI) bounces back ahead of oversold territory.

However, indications of slowing consumption may produce headwinds for crude as US inventories jump 8.235M in the week ending July 1 versus forecasts for a 1.043M decline, and current market conditions may keep a lid on crude prices as the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) plan to “adjust upward the monthly overall production for the month of August 2022 by 0.648 mb/d.”

It remains to be seen if OPEC will retain the current production schedule over the remainder of the year amid the weakening outlook for demand, and developments coming out of the US may influence crude prices as the recent rise in oil output appears to be stalling.

A deeper look at the figures from the Energy Information Administration (EIA) show weekly field production printing at 12,100K for the second week, and signs of limited supply may lead to a near-term rebound in the price of oil as it appears to be reversing course head of the 200-Day SMA ($92.62).

With that said, failure to test the April low ($92.93) may keep the price of oil within a defined range ahead of the next OPEC Ministerial Meeting on August 3, and crude may attempt to retrace the decline from the monthly high ($111.45) as the Relative Strength Index (RSI) bounces back ahead of oversold territory.

  • The price of oil appears to be reversing course ahead of the 200-Day SMA ($92.62) amid the failed attempt to break/close below the Fibonacci overlap around $93.50 (61.8% retracement) to $95.30 (23.6% expansion), and crude may stage a larger rebound as long as it holds above the April low ($92.93).
  • The Relative Strength Index (RSI) highlights a similar dynamic as it bounces back ahead of oversold territory, but need a close above the $104.20 (50% expansion) region to bring the $108.10 (61.8% expansion) area back on the radar.
  • A move above the 50-Day SMA ($110.10) may push the price of oil towards the monthly high ($11.45), with the next area of interest coming in around $112.80 (161.8% expansion) to $113.70 (78.6% expansion).
  • However, failure to close above the $104.20 (50% expansion) region may keep the price of oil within a defined range as the 50-Day SMA ($110.10) no longer reflects a positive slope, with a move below $100.20 (38.2% expansion) raising the scope for another run at the overlap around $93.50 (61.8% retracement) to $95.30 (23.6% expansion).

    • The new month kicked off with several stock market indices hitting record highs on Thursday. Japan's Nikkei Average, the S&P 500, and the Nasdaq all closed at fresh record peaks. The gains were buoyed by tech stocks like NVIDIA and Advanced Micro Devices. Stock markets are in an upbeat mood after US inflation figures came in line with expectations on Thursday. This helped shape forecasts for the timing of future Fed interest rate cuts. It extended the ongoing global equity rally and also pushed Treasury yields lower. The DAX also reached a new all-time high on Thursday. Europe opens today waiting for inflation data that should indicate inflation is moving back toward the 2% target. This comes after data showed inflation dropping in countries like Germany, France and Spain thanks to lower energy and food prices. The ECB has maintained record-high interest rates since September. Also on the calendar today is the US ISM manufacturing PMI.   
    • Cocoa Elliott Wave Analysis - 1 March 24 Function - Trend Mode - Impulsive Structure - Impulse Wave Position - Blue wave ‘iv’ unfolds Direction - Blue wave ‘iv’ in progress Cocoa has been a standout performer in the commodity market over the past two years, exhibiting a robust upward trend since September 2022. During this period, Cocoa prices have surged by an impressive 170%, following a discernible impulse wave pattern. Examining the daily chart, it is evident that the current rally, which commenced around the 2200 mark, is approaching its final stages. The completion of black wave 5 marked the conclusion of blue sub-wave iii at 6500. The recent downward movement indicates the emergence of blue sub-wave iv. Based on projections, blue sub-wave iv of 5 is anticipated to progress towards the significant level of 8000. A closer inspection of the sub-waves within blue wave iv reveals a potential three-wave decline, as depicted on the H4 chart. This decline from 6500 is forecasted to retrace towards the Fibonacci levels of 5489-5174. Additionally, the critical trading level of 5000 serves as another pivotal area to monitor for potential support should the ongoing dip breach the aforementioned Fibonacci zone. However, it's essential to note that the development of the wave 5 impulse pattern would be invalidated if prices were to fall below 4354. In summary, adopting a strategy of buying into the dip appears to be the most prudent approach for traders interested in Cocoa. The focus will be on purchasing opportunities towards the end of blue wave iv of 5, particularly if there's a bullish reaction observed at the identified price support levels. This analysis underscores the potential opportunities within Cocoa's current price movement and provides a framework for traders to navigate the market effectively. By incorporating Elliott Wave principles, traders can better understand the underlying market dynamics and make informed decisions to capitalize on future price movements in Cocoa.
