WTI hits the rocks..but for how long?

Recommended Posts

Have been quietly going long on oil and have loved the volatility. However, WTI has paused for a breather since Monday and has gone off sideways. This has surprised me a little as Brent has not followed quite the same path. OK so stocks of WTI are larger than expected, but Heating, Diesel and Gasoline are not and the net imports are still 1.6 million or so. Point being there is still significant demand, but not for WTI. All this has caused a bit of head scratching and further research. So maybe it's just speculation combined with politics. Either way a reversal was due, but for how long? Markets are otherwise in pretty good shape and seemingly Bullish. We shall see. Am holding on to a long position for now as I took profits on Monday.

@786Trader,  just caught this snippet of an interview from IG on twitter but can't find the full version on IG Youtube yet.

Thanks for the info Casey. As usual differing arguments. Oil was battered on Friday, but is recovering. Demand outlook may be downgraded, but not by much. Also oil is still at fair price. Venezuela, Iran, Iraq, Saudi on steriods plus the ever calm Russians and Trump, are rarely anything but  volatile. Oil is political. Price will rise some more. that's the position according to my reckoning.

Thanks Casey. 

Still trying to balance, or is that juggle opposing opinions and data streams. 

Really appreciate the info, some reinforces and other casts doubt..........

Good luck to you, ()tempered with good judgement).

@786Trader,  that's always the way, without two sides to the story there wouldn't be two sides to the trade.

    • Brent Crude rally ends, time for the big Bear!
      "Looks to me like my question as to whether the the 25 April turn was a rally end or a simple retrace may have been answered as Brent price dropped hard through the supporting lower channel line.  I would like to see the recent lows broken to confirm but odds are that this market is now heading down.  Could this mean that Stocks have also topped out?"
