WTI slips towards mid-July high

WTI’s failed attempt of a rally to Monday’s $81.73 per barrel high has been followed by a drop to a one-month low at $77.60 on demand worries. The oil price slid for a fourth consecutive session as softer-than-expected flash PMIs in the Eurozone, UK and US raised concerns about future energy demand.

A fall through Wednesday’s low at $77.60 would put the $77.17 mid-July high on the map, below which meanders the 200-day simple moving average (SMA) at $75.98. The $78.65 mid-August low acts as minor resistance ahead of the minor psychological $80.00 mark.

Gold on track for fourth straight day of gains

The bullish reversal in the gold price from this week’s $1,885 per troy ounce low is taking it towards the mid-June low at $1,925 ahead of the Jackson Hole symposium where central bankers will guide markets on their interest rate outlooks.

Another potential upside target is the 55-day simple moving average (SMA) at $1,934 while support comes in along the 200-day simple moving average (SMA) at $1,910.

Natural gas futures fall towards July low

Natural gas prices are on the way down again as Australian strike risk fades. A preliminary agreement reached between Woodside Energy and unions at a major Australian liquefied natural gas (LNG) site has also pushed European gas futures prices down by around 13% on Thursday morning.

The fall through the June-to-August uptrend line at $2.598 MMBtu puts the July and early August lows at $2.481 to $2.480 on the map. If also slipped through, the 8 June high at $2.415 may also be reached. Minor resistance above the breached uptrend line can be found between the 18 August low at $2.620 and the 55-day simple moving average (SMA) at $2.656.

    • The crypto market appears to be showing signs of recovery, with significant improvements in the Sharpe Ratios of Bitcoin, BGB, and Ethereum, according to an article published on Friday.  The Sharpe Ratio, a measure used to understand the return of an investment compared to its risk, has seen a notable increase for both cryptocurrencies. Bitcoin's Sharpe Ratio has risen from -2.4 to 0.68, while Ethereum and BGB have also experienced a similar uptrend. This change signifies higher returns at lower risk, which is expected to attract more investors to the crypto market. In addition to the improved Sharpe Ratios, increased network activity and trading volume as shown on CEXs like Bitget, Binance, and a few DEXs are suggesting a healthier market state. The current trading prices of Bitcoin, reflect this overall positive market sentiment. As of Friday, Bitcoin was trading at $27,069.73, BGB at $0.454 and Ethereum at $1,677.89. These developments are significant as they indicate reduced risk in the crypto market. The increase in the Sharpe Ratios for Bitcoin, BGB, and Ethereum suggests that these cryptocurrencies are becoming less risky investments, which could potentially lead to an influx of new investors into the market.  Could this rise in Sharpe Ratios coupled with increased network activity and trading volume point towards a recovering and less risky crypto market?
