Decision time for Brent

Last week, Goldman released a note in which they said that they could forsee $20 per barrel for oil.  I personally cannot see this but stand to be proved wrong.

 

The chart below for Brent shows that the downside prevails and without a dip below the lows or a breakout of the current trend could see the market reach a crucial decision point mid October from a technical point of view.

 

What are investor's thoughts on Goldman's $20 and do you forsee a test of the lows?chart.png

Seriously doubt $20 will happen. I'm sticking to my prediction from a month ago which it's followed like clockwork so far:

 

"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."

 

If you believe in TA it looks like a descending triangle formed between the start of the month and now so should be seeing a further drop before too long.

 exactly what I was thinking.  I cannot imagine many producers having a B/E at $20 or below.  I think the Saudis would step in if it got anywhere near there.  Production levels in the US ar dropping so that could see a bit of a bounce with WTI (maybe!).  I expect a further cut in rigs in the US.

    • Hi does anyone know how to work out the credit received when selling a strangle in the IG platform?
    • @Toppie_Australia If you want to trade crypto use a crypto broker such as FTX and Binance their quite reputable and their margins are hugely smaller than IG. Personally I don't like the Binance platform it's just too confusing to navigate around and their id verification is a nightmare (just don't even go there).  I prefer using the 3commas platform and use the API interface to connect my brokerage accounts.   
    • I think most professional traders have that methodology and mindset its what sets us apart from the rest I don't look at the VIX, as with cycles for you, the VIX isn't of interest to me, done perfectly well without the need for it so far and that won't change going forward
