News to keep you updated
This year, the US Department of Energy has repeatedly stated that it wants to begin replenishing SPR, but the price did not seem right because they set themselves a range from 68 to 72 dollars. The price ironically costs much more - about $90 per WTI. Whether the price will fall within two months is anyone's guess. However, with OPEC and Saudi Arabia still determined to rein in production, the chances of this happening are slim, even with Venezuela's oil production rising.
China has significantly increased imports of energy resources and raw materials. In September 2023, crude oil imports increased by 14.6% compared to last year's, natural gas by 8.2%, coal by 73.1%, and iron ore by 6.7%.
Total gas reserves in the EU continue to reach historical highs, with injection rates rebounding following warming in Europe. LNG receipts into the region have increased slightly, but in October, they remain near the minimum values in almost two years.

Strong gains in the so-called "Magnificent Seven" stocks - Apple, Microsoft, Alphabet, Amazon, Nvidia, Tesla, and Meta Platforms - accounted for nearly all of the S&P 500 Index's annual gain - due to their overweight in the S&P 500 index. The Magnificent Seven shares trade at an average forward price-to-earnings ratio of 33.5, compared to the S&P 500's P/E of 18.3.
BTCUSD has almost touched 31000. The price is approaching the resistance line at 31800 in the weekly timeframe.

There is a possibility of reversal, but the gold price mainly reacts to the fundamental picture. If XAUUSD breaks 1990, the next resistance will be in 2050.
