Oil

Recommended Posts

 Interesting oil chart from Michael Boutros's webinar this morning. 

 

He has taken the price action of the recovery after the 2009 major low and placed it on top of the most recent 2016 major low.

Good correlation and flagging up a possible correction coming soon.

I remember trading 3LOI ETF at the beginning of last year when we were around the 32 USD mark. Probably a massively bad tradeidea but I went in a bit big and rode it out, booked profit, saw a pull back and ringed and repeat. Obviously you don’t want to hold too much with time decay but all in all... we had a good holiday that year.

A look at the weekly chart of US Oil shows the 74 level is significant previous support turned resistance and the gap up to start the week shows a willingness to keep testing the zone.

Will be interesting to see how seriously the middle eastern OPEC countries take Trump's not so veiled threat that US military support in the region is not unconditional in his recent tweet and stating OPEC was a cartel and the price of oil was too high.

    • APAC brief - 21 Mar
      Market action proves it again: this market hinges on the Fed: The US Fed has proven itself as the most important game in town for traders. The FOMC met this morning, and lo-and-behold: the dovish Fed has proven more dovish than previously thought; the patient Fed has proven more patient that previously thought. Interest rates have remained on hold, but everyone knew that was to be the case today. It was about the dot-plots, the neutral-rate, the economic projections, and the balance sheet run-off. On all accounts, the Fed has downgraded their views on the outlook. And boy, have markets responded. The S&P500 has proven its major-sensitivity to FOMC policy and whipsawed alongside a fall in US Treasury yields, as traders price-in rate cuts from the Fed in the future.


      The US Dollar sends some asset classes into a tizz: The US Dollar has tumbled across the board consequently, pushing gold prices higher. The Australian Dollar, even for all its current unattractiveness, has burst higher, to be trading back toward the 0.7150 mark. Commodity prices, especially those of thriving industrial metals, have also rallied courtesy of the weaker greenback. Emerging market currencies are collectively stronger, too. This is all coming because traders are more-or-less betting that the Fed is at the end of its hiking cycle, and financial conditions will not be constricted by policy-maker intervention. Relatively cheap money will continue to flow, as yields remain depressed, and allow for the (sometimes wonton) risk-taking conditions that markets have grown used to in the past decade.
