Talking Points

The price of WTI Crude Oil (CFD:USOil) has temporarily found support after this afternoons FOMC rate decision and statement. The event found the FOMC keeping rates unchanged at 0.50%; and key statements read that for the month of June “Market-based measures of inflation compensation remained low.” As such, Crude prices and other commodities such as gold have rebounded from lows put in place during the event. If prices remains supported, it opens Crude Oil up to trade back towards session highs at $43.17. Alternatively, if support falls it would suggest a continuation of the commodities daily decline.
