The EUR/USD pair is making gains, approaching multi-month highs around 1.0960, driven by a weakened USD and Christine Lagarde's somewhat hawkish remarks before the European Parliament. Minor housing data from the U.S., specifically New Home Sales for October, came in below expectations but didn't significantly impact the pair. Lagarde, President of the...
Can oil reverse after OPEC+ meeting?
2023-07-04 • Updated
Saudi Arabia and Russia, two of the world's largest oil producers, have decided to extend cuts to their oil production to support oil prices and boost income. This move comes despite weakened demand due to the sluggish economy. The voluntary reductions, which will continue through next year, have had a limited impact on oil prices, providing some relief to consumers worldwide and allowing US drivers to fill their tanks more affordably. The extension of cuts by Saudi Arabia indicates the uncertain outlook for fuel demand, even as travel increases. Both countries require sustained high oil revenue for their economic objectives. Russia, in particular, faces the challenge of Western sanctions, resulting in lower export revenue. Let's now see whatever clue the price action may hold for us.
US Dollar - H4 Timeframe
We will look at the US Dollar majorly because the Crude oil CFDs I will analyze in this piece are all paired against the US Dollar. The price action, as seen on the attached chart, shows the price leaning on a support trendline which sits perfectly within the vicinity of the 50 and 100 period moving averages; this suggests the likelihood of a bullish price action from the Dollar, which may be short-lived nonetheless.
XTIUSD - H4 Timeframe
XTIUSD (US Oil) is currently trading within a consolidation pattern. The main reason why I am going to be somewhat conservative on my risk exposure in this trade is the fact that the Dollar seems to be prepping for a bullish recovery, which could negatively impact the price action here and cause a rejection from the resistance trendline I have drawn on the attached chart. To avoid unpleasant experiences, I will patiently wait for a break out of the consolidation zone before taking in trade in the direction of the breakout. Remember, a missed trade is much better than a lost one - protect yourself, folks!
XBRUSD - H4 Timeframe
XBRUSD is creating a similar price action to what we have just seen on XTIUSD and will, as a result, be treated similarly. I expect to see the price break out of the zone before taking a position. This breakout will be the trigger required before taking a market stake.

Hey folks, it’s a wrap to yet another month in the 2023 calendar, and I’m guessing you know what that means - time for another episode in the “What To Trade” series. For December, I will be mapping out trade more cautiously as the market volatility often drops
Gold prices, reaching the highest since May 5, are consolidating as traders await the US PCE Price Index, a key inflation indicator. The upcoming data could impact the Fed's policy, influencing the demand for the US Dollar and providing direction for gold.
