Crude Oil Prices May Resume Decline on API Inventory Data

Crude Oil Prices May Resume Decline on API Inventory Data

2017-06-20 04:37:00
Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

Talking Points:

  • Crude oil prices may resume down move on API inventory data
  • Gold prices fall after hawkish comments from NY Fed’s Dudley
  • More Fed-speak may compound pressure on precious metals

Crude oil prices have stalled absent fresh fodder to drive trend development after sinking to a six-week low. Weekly API inventory flow figures may break the deadlock when they cross the wires later today. A smaller draw than the 1.13 million barrel outflow expected to be reported in analogous, official EIA data on Wednesday may revive selling pressure.

Gold prices fell as the US Dollar rose alongside front-end Treasury bond yields, sapping demand for non-interest-bearing and anti-fiat assets. The move followed comments from New York Fed President Bill Dudley, who is often seen as of a bellwether on the rate-setting FOMC committee. He expressed confidence in the durability of the US economic expansion, triggering a hawkish shift in policy expectations.

Looking ahead, another busy day on the Fed-speak front may continue to weigh on prices if policymakers’ tone mirrors the confident posture on display in last week’s policy announcement. Comments from Vice Chair Stanley Fischer as well as Boston and Dallas Fed branch presidents Eric Rosengren and Robert Kaplan (respectively) are on the docket.

CRUDE OIL TECHNICAL ANALYSISCrude oil prices are in digestion mode at key support in the 43.79-44.10 area (channel floor, May 5 low, 38.2% Fibonacci expansion).

Alternatively, a turn back above the 45.09-32 zone (23.6% Fib, May 4 low) exposes the 46.69-47.12 region (June 12 high, chart inflection point) anew.
