Oil Stabilized After Short-Term Supply Crunch
Good morning dear traders! Are you ready for a new trading day? Let’s see what news is worth mentioning today:
Events that take place:
Microsoft, Google, Twitter, Coca-Cola, General Electrics, and General Motors earnings reports.
Oil performs well
Oil stabilized as traders assessed a short-term supply crunch in the crude oil market and a broad appetite for risky assets, including commodities. However, it’s still influenced by fundamental factors.
Investors are weighing fears about the impact of the global economic downturn and monetary tightening on plants to cut supply. They also await further details on the US plan to cap Russian oil prices.
In addition, the poor economic outlook for China, the largest importer of crude oil, added to concerns. The country's GDP posted a mixed relusts in the third quarter, with strict Covid-19 controls and a downturn in the real estate market continuing to weigh on growth and, consequently, oil demand.
Now Brent's price is consolidating between 92.50 and 88.00. In the short term, it slowly continues its downtrend. We can expect the price to fall to 88.00 and then to 86.00. In case of reversal, 95.30 is the nearest target.
