Brent - double bottom??

No chance this is the bottom. Some chance of an Aug/Sept rally but the headwinds are terrible for oil.

Using WTI as the benchmark you might hope for 45-50 but it'll go back to 40 afterwards and probably into the 30's. I don't think it'll hit the $30 predictions as too many people will start to buy long-term longs. You might get $32 optimistically, but more likely $35-$38.

Much lower and it's too painful for too many, both medium term, and long term. If it went under $35 for very long it's the best bet ever as it kills long term exploration spending, ignoring US Shale which is more flexible, for that reason you'll get too much money trying to pile in covertly and overtly below that price (it's really $40 imo for that breakeven point but $35 is where it becomes pushing it too much).

Best hope for oil is a collapse in the dollar as it's still pretty strongly correlated. This being a signal of weakness now when a dollar rally hammers oil and a dollar follow leads to a weak rally in oil.

 Oil is a very tough market to call at the moment.  So many variables to take into account.  I personally dont think OPEC will cut production when they next meet.  

 

I think the significant factor accross all markets will be the US FED rate hike, which I will stick my neck out and say will come this month.  Although while I think they will rise this month, the NFP figures and other economic data released before then could change things.

 

The daily brent chart looks quite bullish I think.  Obviously starting from a lower low than March's last dip.  But there is scope for a secent rise.  Key will be whether there is a similar pattern in the rise.  The daily chart seems to be in the process of forming a similar pattern.  I would expect some further consolidation and profit taking before a rise up.  Although if the downtrend continues I would certainly expect to see the previous lows tested.

Lots of variables but I've had a lot of success calling this one in advance (whether by luck or judgement).

Currently a tougher call, so I've got no positions on it, as my preference is it to follow my original prediction which was to get under $38 before rallying to $45-50 and then back down again, as it's followed it like clockwork so far. Therefore if it gets back down to $40 I'll start to consider longs again but scale in slowly. This last dip was always the tougher part of the prediction to happen (hence no positions).

(WTI obviously)

    • MON Protocol aims to be a leading developer and publisher of blockchain-native IPs and games. Their vision extends beyond traditional gaming ecosystems, as they seek to bring games and gaming characters onto the blockchain. MON is an ERC-20 fungible token that powers and governs fractionalized IP ecosystems.   30% of the total supply is allocated for community claims, emphasizing community-driven initiatives. While 29% of the total token supply is dedicated to fostering growth and sustainability within both the Pixelmon and MON Protocol communities. All one billion tokens will be fully unlocked within 48 months of the token generation event (TGE), which is anticipated to take place in Q1 2024. This gradual release underscores MON Protocol's commitment to transparency and ecosystem development. Will MON Protocol's unique approach to IP governance, combined with Bitget's strategic listing, positions it as a frontrunner in fostering community engagement and sustainable ecosystem growth?
    • Another reason I prefer DAX to other markets is that I am able to use my own profitable method on it, which I call "Reverse Trades." In it's simplest form it is a good Entry Point, which is used repeatedly for trades, for as many times as the market price returns to this Entry Point.  This is illustrated in the chart below for 22nd May. The best Reverse Trades occur when the market beats the Entry Price and then re-crosses the Entry Price. If this is not clear, feel free to write to me and I will explain in greater detail.
    • The gaming industry is one of the industries that has effectively leveraged the efficiency of blockchain technology to drive growth. A fiercely competitive sector, it takes unique innovative Ideas to stand out. When analysing the chances of infant GameFi projects to reach the heights, one project seems to have staked a claim to be soon held in the same breath as the leading projects– Param Labs. Param Labs, an AAA game and blockchain development studio is dedicated to creating top-tier blockchain-integrated games with player-owned digital assets, and is developing a modular gaming ecosystem, comprised of games and infrastructure.  Already a trending project thanks to the widespread participation of its airdrop, Param has gone on to strike partnership with Animoca Brands, a frontrunner for advancing digital property rights within gaming and the open metaverse; highlighting its wildfire-esque spread. While the buzzing community anticipate their airdrop reward, the news that it will launch on Bitget on 29th May amongst other exciting listings has spiked the anticipation. If you can relate, how excited are you with the imminent launch and what Param Labs brings to the gaming industry generally?
