WTI and Brent Crude Oil

WTI Crude Oil

The West Texas Intermediate Crude Oil market has done very little during the trading session again on Monday as we continue to see the market chop back and forth. We are essentially stuck between the 50 day EMA on the bottom and the 200 day EMA on the top. If that is going to be the case, then it is likely that what we are going to see is a market that continues to look for some type of longer-term catalyst. Right now, we simply do not have one. We have a lot of things going on at the same time that they seem to be canceling each other out.

Brent markets of course are doing the same thing, as we have no real drive to go in one direction or another. As long as the US dollar continues to struggle, it is likely that we will see a bit of upward pressure, but at the same time we have to worry about whether or not there is enough demand, and of course whether or not there is going to be compliance when it comes to OPEC countries. So far, the compliance has been relatively strong so that has been one of the boosts higher and of course with the US dollar certainly that helps to. However, and this is a huge thing, demand is most certainly down as the lack of air travel alone has taken a huge chunk out of it.
