Crude Oil Prices Rise Despite Oversupply Worries, US CPI on Tap

Crude Oil Prices Rise Despite Oversupply Worries, US CPI on Tap

Talking Points:

Crude oil prices turned higher even as the IEA warned that global market rebalancing has become less certain. The agency cited increasing OPEC output despite a cartel-led production cut effort even as more swing supply – particularly from the US – comes online. This has derailed efforts to drain bloated stockpiles.

Seemingly counter-intuitive price action may reflect corrective flows triggered by the passage of the last bit of major event risk for the week. The Baker Hughes rig count report is on tap but this rarely generates a significant response. Indeed, the WTI benchmark’s average move in the 30 minutes after the weekly release is a mere 0.03 percent.

The knock-on impact of US Dollar volatility may emerge as a catalyst into the week-end as June’s CPI data is released. The report is expected to show that year-on-year inflation slowed to 1.7 percent, marking the fourth consecutive month of deceleration and the weakest reading since November 2016. A soft print may cool Fed rate hike bets, pushing the currency lower.

A significant inverse correlation between the greenback and the WTI contract has been rebuilt in recent weeks and now stands at -0.78 on rolling 20-day studies, the highest since March 2016. This hints that a weaker US currency may echo as higher oil prices. The response from gold prices is likely to be far more directly positive in this scenario as a dovish policy view boosts the appeal of anti-fiat assets.

CRUDE OIL TECHNICAL ANALYSISCrude oil prices are attempting to rebuild upside momentum after holding up on a retest of support at 45.32.
