Crude Oil Prices Extend Drop But Chart Setup Hints at Bounce

Crude Oil Prices Extend Drop But Chart Setup Hints at Bounce

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

Talking Points:

  • Crude oil prices pressured but chart setup hints at recovery potential
  • Gold prices continue to sink as US election boosts Fed rate hike bets
  • Fed-speak returns to the spotlight, may boost post-election dynamics

Gold prices continue to face heavy selling pressure as traders price in a steeper Fed rate hike path in the aftermath of last week’s US presidential election. Crude oil finished last week on the defensive after the IEA warned a global supply glut may persist despite OPEC efforts to negotiate coordinated output cuts. Bets on a more aggressive Fed tightening effort may have also contributed, driving the US Dollar higher and putting de-facto pressure on USD-denominated commodity prices. Fed-speak enters the spotlight in the hours ahead, with comments echoing officials’ cautiously hawkish tone ahead of last week’s vote likely to bode ill for precious metals and energy prices alike.
