WTI to hit $26?

 I would not want to say one way or the other on this one.  There does seem to be a bit of a dual going on between OPEC and non-OPEC countries.  I think OPEC thought that the US would blink first but we that does not seem to be the case (yet).  Rig count is down and I expect to see it drop even further.  Production is due to drop whilst demand is expected to increase again next year.

 

I am still waiting for capitulation in the sector.  Yes there has been a reduction in drilling activity but I have yet to see any big names capitulate.

 You are right.  WTI is more bullish than Brent at the moment.  The EIA data is crucial.  You are right that all eyes will be on the fed tonight.  Watch for the Baker Hughes rig count tomorrow.  Rigs were declining then he had a few weeks of an increase and now back to a few weeks of declining numbers.

What has certainly caught my eye is the narrowing of the the spread between Crude and WTI.

I am betting it will widen a bit from here but I am keeping a close eye and will close the spread( long Brent/short WTI) if it narrows more than $1 more than the current $2.30 it is at now.

 

Any thoughts?

 I'm really not sure about oil at the moment.  I suppose if you look long term then you have to be bullish but short term anything could happen.

 

Markets are all over the place today.  I was up on my GBP/USD trade but am now back down level.  I think key at the moment is to take profits and run!

Thanks Firing Squad.

I still want to be short JPY and EUR it's just a bit scary atm.

Took a small profit on GBPJPY long I had for a while . I want to be long but I see a lot more downside in the market short term.

The Yen seems to gain when the market gets hit, not that makes much fundamental sense. But it just keeps happening.

Will have to wait a bit for those trades.

I'm short the ASX200 and that's it atm.

Would like to get long WTI at some stage as I think its bottomed. Hard to do in this environment.

Sorry, , slowest reply ever.

Obviously the trading became so disconnected from reality that it nearly got to those $25 levels. Although today is proving just how baseless the markets are at the moment. There's no good reason that justifies the size of move today in crude. API numbers built etc. One hint of QE and the markets go bananas!

There's some interesting articles on zerohedge regarding the US fed possibly intervening in the situation with US shalers.

Markets just seem to be a product of government-level meddling with currency and market wars at the moment. Compounded by mass shorting and then covering and going long.Crazy volatility.

    • hahaha, and now ... Dylan Davidson @dyl_davidson Holy ****, on the day Biden is sworn in, WHO advises laboratories around the world to reduce the cycle count in PCR Covid testing, which will result in fewer positives!!  WHO Information Notice for IVD Users 2020/05   If you have been reading the thread you will know the high cycle threshold in use for the PCR was a major cause of the very high ratio of false positives (50 - 80%) (if you haven't already have a listen to the 16 min podcast (linked in quoted post) where Harvard Prof explains the different uses for the PCR and the Lateral Flow tests and why we should be using the quick and cheap LFT).
    • I seem to remember reading somewhere that over a certain limit the buying and selling fees are no longer a flat fee and become a percentage of the sale/purchase. Is this true and if so what are the limits and how does one buy or sell above a certain value? I'm talking specifically about equities.  Couldn't find any information on this so any guidance would be welcome. Thanks!
    • I really trade! Here is a trade from this week - The Market is an ETF of the Nasdaq100 Index provided by ishares - CNX1 This was a 2 day Swing trade If you've read the above posts then this is a clear DOUBLE BOTTOM following all the rules mentioned in the posts above ENTRY - Entry was actually set for the high of the Inside bar but the market gapped up and opened at the GREEN horizontal line! which was fine As you can see the DB caused a classic W shape if fulfilled - 2RSI in the <25% Oversold zone = 1 high probability trade potential with target of the swing high of the long leg of the W - as you can see price hit that level this afternoon for a healthy return - This provided a 2R return, "IF" (and we have no control over this) I'd of been triggered in at the high of the Inside bar as planned rather than the gapped entry, the R:R was 4R if stop placed at the swing low or 11R if entry was high of the narrow range IB and stop was at the low of it! - Now in this trade - the intention was the 11R trade but the Gap caused a change of plan THIS IS WHY I TRADE BECAUSE OFTEN THESE TRADES COME OFF INTENDED AS PLANNED - this one didn't but it was still a half decent trade To prove the position - I won't be doing this ever again - very NEARLY got the high! You can SCAN the market EVERY DAY for NARROW RANGE bars - and then when they conform to trading method you employ they offer an ultra high probability trading opportunity with ultra high returns
