Commodities: Crude Oil Rebound May Falter as Earnings Enter Spotlight

The recent recovery in crude oil prices may unravel as traders tune into the beginning of the corporate earnings season for guidance on risk appetite trends.

Talking Points

  • Oil Rebound May Unravel as Sentiment Looks to Q4 Earnings for Direction
  • Gold and Silver Prices Find De-Facto Support as US Dollar Corrects Lower

Sentiment-linked crude oil is on the upswing along with a narrow improvement in risk appetite in European hours, with regional shares edging higher. Gold and silver are likewise trading higher as the US Dollar corrects lower, offering de-facto support to anti-fiat assets. Copper is little-changed.

All eyes are on the US earnings calendar, with reports from cycle-sensitive Alcoa Inc and Monsanto Co in focus. Traders will be looking for the companies’ guidance to help shape the outlook for global demand heading into 2013, which may prove formative for risk appetite. S&P 500 futures are little-changed ahead of the opening bell on Wall Street, hinting investors remain non-committal for the time being.

WTI Crude Oil (NY Close): $93.19 // +0.10 // +0.11%

Prices put in a Hanging Man candlestick below resistance at 93.25, the 100% Fibonacci expansion, hinting a move lower is ahead. Near-term support is in the 91.23-92.01 area, marked by the 61.8% and 76.4% Fibs respectively. This barrier is reinforced by the formerly broken top of a rising channel top set from early November.A drop below 91.23 exposes the 90.00 figure. Alternatively, a reversal above 93.25 aims for the 123.6% expansion at 94.51.
