Long Crude Trade

Hi guys,

Given the recent developments on markets since the Coronavirus outbreak and the disputes within OPEC+ crude is now in the low 20-region. Assuming this worldwide mess will get sort out, demand will pick up and that low prices will send some players into bankrupcy, I think investing long term in non-levered crude ETF is best practice. Just getting back to 30 would be a huge profit. Since I invest in pounds, I better get the one the GBP-hedged one (ticker PBRT.L).

Any thoughts? Thanks

That's the way to go, you will just need to be patient.

Everything will eventually bounce back, with the proviso that capitalism retains its current form.

A lot of people desire in their heart of hearts for a new, socialist world order.

I understand your point, there will be demand destruction, but you are basing the recovery of oil on just the demand, which will eventually come back maybe in 6 to 12 months. 
My point here is that current price levels are not sustainable for none of the 3 main players; saudis, Russia and US. Most of US's shale oil producers will go bust - most of them in Texas, which by the way is 100% Republican. Therefore, I expect Trump to move in the coming weeks to make the 3 players move a bit curtailing production.

With current environment, I see a floor at low-10s, but it is not an easy task to catch the bottom and therefore a gradual entry, like you recommended is the best way here.

 

 

Don't get me wrong, I am still shorting oil, but I believe current prices are unsustainable and that production will eventually be cut, regardless of what happens with demand.

Did not find anything actually suitable. To invest long term in oil you need ETF made of futures with long duration, while most of the available ones have 1 or 3 months. That is certainly a trap, as we are currently in contango, and therefore the long term correlation will be low.

Any ideas / ETF suggestions would really be appreciated.

Thanks

    • Breaking News - US NFPs Surge to 517k vs 185k Expectations, Unemployment Rate Falls to 3.4% Feb 3, 2023 | DailyFX Nick Cawley, Senior Strategist Source: Bloomberg   US DOLLAR (DXY) PRICE AND CHART ANALYSIS US NFPs smash expectations in January. US dollar picks up a bid. Total nonfarm payroll employment increased by 517k in January, and the unemployment rate fell to 3.4% according to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics. Hourly earnings also beat expectations. Last month’s NFP figure was also revised higher from 223k to 260k. ‘ Job growth was widespread in January, led by gains in leisure and hospitality, professional and business services, and health care. Employment also increased in government, partially reflecting the return of workers from a strike.’     The Federal Reserve hiked interest rates by 25 basis points at this Wednesday's FOMC meeting, a move fully expected, and priced in by the market. Fed chair Powell, while continuing to stress that further rises are data dependent, added a new word to his FOMC vocabulary, disinflation, sending the US dollar lower and risk markets sharply higher. Powell said that it is a ‘good thing that disinflation so far has not come at expense of labor market’, adding that ‘this disinflationary period is in early stages’. While chair Powell will still keep tightening monetary policy to break the back of inflation, financial markets are now pricing in just one more 25bp rate hike at the March meeting before a pause in Q2 and Q3, while rate cuts are now seen in Q4. FOMC Hikes Rates 25 bps as Expected, Leaves Open Further Hike Expectations The US dollar (DXY) picked up a bid post-release rising around 60 cents to 101.90 US DOLLAR (DXY) DAILY PRICE CHART – FEBRUARY 3, 2023     What is your view on the US Dollar – bullish or bearish?

    • EUR/USD, GBP/USD and USD/JPY head lower after central bank volatility This week has seen risk-off sentiment dominate the FX market, with EUR/USD and GBP/USD falling back towards Fibonacci support. Meanwhile, the USD/JPY downtrend looks to finally kick in once again.  Joshua Mahony | Senior Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Friday 03 February 2023  EUR/USD turns higher from Fibonacci support EUR/USD has managed to maintain its consistent uptrend despite the central bank fuelled volatility seen over the course of this week. Today brings a final hurdle to overcome in the form of the US jobs report, with the last pullback bringing a potentially advantageous location to look for longs in EUR/USD. With the price having dropped into a deep Fibonacci retracement level over the course of the past 24 hours, this is a notable area where the bulls could come back in to maintain the bullish trend. With that in mind, long positions remain in favour unless we see the price fall back below the $1.0802 swing low. Source: ProRealTime GBP/USD reverses back towards Fibonacci support GBP/USD has been hit hard over the past 24 hours, with the pound particularly coming under pressure in the back end of this week. While that decline has been relatively convincing in terms of momentum, the wider bullish trend remains in play. The pullback into the 76.4% Fibonacci support level of $1.2172 highlights the potential for a bullish turnaround from here. As such, keep an eye out for how the pair respects this Fibonacci level, with a break below that point signalling the potential for a continuation of this decline towards the key $1.2086. Meanwhile, watch out for a move up through the 80 threshold on the stochastic oscillator as a signal that the bulls are coming back into dominance. Source: ProRealTime USD/JPY breakdown points towards further downside USD/JPY has finally given way after a period of consolidation that took the price up towards trendline resistance. The ability to maintain that wider bearish trend brought expectations of another leg lower, which appears to be in the offing. The decline through $1.2902 support brings an end to the recent trend of higher lows seen earlier this week. As such, we appear to have set in motion a potential fresh bearish phase, with a negative outlook holding as long as the price does not rise up through the $1.3055 resistance level established on Monday. Until that happens, the bears look likely to remain in charge. Source: ProRealTime
