China has issued new oil product export quotas to allow oil companies to send surplus barrels overseas, particularly Sinopec, which has the highest volume among quota holders. While the exact quota volume remains undisclosed, oil companies are forecasted to export approximately 3.5 million metric tons of clean oil products in September, a 10% increase from August.
Bitcoin (BTC/USD) poised to do another leg lower
2019-11-11 • Updated
The corrective movement in Bitcoin continues to spread across the board and we are currently observing that it is finding support on the 200-hour moving average, around the 17,555 level. We have also seen that the bullish trend line projected from the lows of December 10 has been fractured, which has allowed the bears to take control of the situation.
In the most recent fundamental developments around cryptocurrency, the head of the Central Bank of Denmark has issued a warning to those who wish to invest in Bitcoins, since according to him, the BTC is a dangerous instrument because it is not regulated. On the other hand, Kuwait's finance minister has declared that he will not recognize Bitcoin and warns that financial institutions should not trade it.
However, the optimism around cryptocurrency remains high and is that according to an ING analyst, the BTC could become a "niche product" in the financial field. The RSI indicator in the H1 chart remains in negative territory, which is an indicator of a bearish continuation in the BTC/USD.
What do we expect?
According to our forecasts, the Parabolic SAR continues to show strength in the current bearish movement, although the 200-hour moving average could serve as a dynamic support for the pair. However, in case of yielding to the bears, the next target would be set at the level of 16,559. In a general plane, the spotlights continue pointing to the Fibonacci extension of 100% in 20,504.
Thanks to the incredible advancements in horizontal drilling and fracking technology, the United States has experienced a mind-blowing shale revolution. They've become the heavyweight champion of crude oil production, leaving Saudi Arabia and Russia in the dust. They even turned the tables and became net exporters of refined petroleum products in 2011.
Oil prices rebounded slightly on Friday but are still expected to show losses for the week due to concerns about slowing growth in the US and China. US crude futures rose 2.7% to $70.41 per barrel, while the Brent contract increased by 2.5% to $74.33 per barrel.
