Doesn't seem to be much interest in WTI here, but if you're into breakouts there's a nice descending wedge here just waiting to break out for you.usoil-h1-ig-group-limited.png

massive potential for oil to drop to 5280 after NYSE open

I'm about to be short squeezed on WTI.  Fell asleep before API numbers yesterday, after a week of full of bad trading decisions.  My short position will not force close until around $60.0 

Barring any geopolitical tension, do you think we can come back down to $57.2 (where I opened the short).  Or is this about to rise much more?  If I close it now I lose a significant amount of money (for me anyways).  Would you advise I deposit more money to keep the position alive in the hope that it comes back to 57.2 or close to it?  

@Caseynoteswould really appreciate your input. Also @elle if you would be so kind to chime in.

I guess it's too late to say "never short crude" especially when the US & Iran are making noise !  Price in an upward channel short term  in my opinion.  Some overhead resistance. $60 has been a price @ which a lot of OPEC & others seem to want.

Yes the inventory short fall in the data yesterday cause a lot of surprise and a jump in price.

WTI has just reached an area of previous consolidation in March and May so may well pause here and consider it's options. Oil traders will probably want to look closely at the US GDP figures tomorrow and the G20 over the weekend before making any big bets so the possibility of a turn around remains. Your stop is in a reasonable position at 60 and if price were to overrun it up into clear space you really wouldn't want to remain short anyway.

Thanks for your prompt replies.   Happy trading :) I'll just have to sit and wait, painful as it may be.

The 4 hours candles are 'walking above' the Bollinger.  a backtest of the past 2 years shows that this will almost certainly not end well for me.  Took the loss, and now I'm out of the position.  

Public service announcement: DO NOT FALL ASLEEP DURING BIG NEWS ON AN OPEN TRADE!

The prelim data proved correct, inventories today  -12.8M, while the expected figure was  -2.7M.

WTI jumped to just short of 60 before pulling back.

Its crazy that its not rallying much more.  This is the biggest drawdown in inventory since Sept 2016.  Its a pretty big deal.

Oil likes round numbers and 60 was also previous resistance so a likely place for sellers to congregate, whether there are enough sell orders waiting there as yet unfilled for another attack on 60, if the news events to come (US GDP and the G20 meeting) warrants it, remains to be seen.

Been trading US Crude for a while - whilst Iran/global concerns are supporting prices in the short term ultimately demand concerns will push prices back down to 5000 levels.

    • Where can I find a list of the US ETFs which are tradable with IG? I can't receive market data for those via the API (same as for stocks), correct?
    • US Dollar - The World's Reserve Currency: The US Dollar as the world's reserve currency is an issue which causes mix reactions and thoughts. When the US Dollar  became the reserve currency there was no Euro or Chinese Renminbi. Since their introduction it has eaten into the US Dollar's world dominance and as a result has led to it declining from the 70%-80% range to the 60% range. If one remembers, the UK Pound Sterling, once was the world's reserve currency but it now only accounts for around 4% at the moment. So things can change and it is not a given that the US Dollar will remain the world's reserve currency forever. It will have to earn that right which it may well do.  The US Dollar’s share of global central bank reserves hit a 5-year low, according to the International Monetary Fund. Now is this the beginning of a significant change here? Is the US, the world superpower it once was? There is no doubt it is the mightiest country in the world at this moment in time in terms of economics but imagine if the US Dollar lost its reserve currency status. This would have a large impact on the economics within the US.  I do not envisage the US losing its status anytime soon but if things continue to get worse and other countries find ways to conduct international transactions / transfers / payments without the need to hold US Dollars, and an alternative arises then who knows. 
    • Going back to my FTSE analysis I see things as follows: 2 scenarios present themselves, other than fresh ATHs that is: 1) the move down to the turn on Thursday was a wave 1 (blue) off a larger scale wave 2 (purple) that should retrace, maybe in a complex fashion with a lot of whip saw price action maybe not, let's see; 2) the recent rally and drop to a new low was a 1-2 (red), which indicates a much stronger leg down is immanent. The #2 scenario would only be valid if price holds below the previous high (circa 7300).  I favour the #1 scenario. There was PMD on the 4H chart at wave 1 (blue), which suggests this is a turning point.  Also the 4H chart shows a 1-5 wave down to the 1 blue, which would be motive and suggests a trend change to the bearish side. There was strong NMD at wave 2 (Purple) which is consistent with a large scale retrace move. Just as with the US large caps, after the stop and turn up there was a sharp retrace drop to the Fib 76/78% zone before the current rally.  As the FTSE was in out of hours at the end of the week this market has not rallied as hard as the US markets.  Also we may yet see fresh ATHs on US large caps while the FTSE100 only puts in a counter trend rally. If we do see fresh ATHs on US large caps and only a retrace on FTSE and probably Dax and Nikkei as well then comparing these markets will be instructive for calling that top on US large caps.  We may, alternatively, see only a retrace on US large caps too if the top of the market in already in. Conclusion: we can anticipate a bullish period on all major indices BUT should guard against a quick reversal on FTSE 100 that would set up scenario #2.  Either way this market looks to have topped out so the coming months though to the Autumn will be critical to deciding things on all indices, and likely quite a few other markets. I am Long the FTSE 100, coincident with my Dow Longs and will swing this up for now but my bearish bias for the long term will keep we watchful for a break down of this rally and I will not be pyramiding this one, far too risky until things are resolved.
