Crude oil closed the previous month above the barrier of $50 for the first time since February, which raised hopes for further improvement. Meanwhile, the commodity reversed and decline, invalidating the earlier breakouts above important resistance lines and levels. What does it man for black gold in broader perspective?

In the previous month crude oil gained almost 9% as declines in crude oil, gasoline and distillates inventories continued to support the price of the commodity. In that environment light crude climbed above the psychologically important barrier of $50 and closed July above it. Despite this bullish development, the price of the black gold slipped below it at the beginning of August. Is this just a bigger pullback or the first sign of a longer correction?

In recent weeks crude oil came back below the barrier of $50, which triggered declines and resulted in a drop to almost six-month lows. Despite this move, oil bulls pushed the commodity higher, which resulted in an invalidation of the breakdowns under important support levels. Is it enough to trigger further rally in the coming weeks?

Without a doubt, the previous week was the best week of 2017 for oil bulls. In that time, the black gold gained 5.48% and invalidated the earlier breakdown under the psychologically important barrier of $50. Is it enough to trigger another bigger move to the upside?

After many weeks in an exhausting consolidation oil bears finally became strong enough to push the price of crude oil lower. Thanks to the recent moves, light crude not only broke below the short-term support levels, but also declined under the barrier of $50. Does it mean that the way to lower levels is open? If so, how low could the black gold go in the coming weeks?

Although crude oil hit a fresh high at the beginning of the year, this improvement was very temporary and we saw a sharp decline on the same day. In the following days, oil bulls tried to come back to the top, but they failed and the main question is whether we will see the oil at fresh peaks in the coming weeks or not? Is it possible that the relationship between crude oil and precious metals give us clues about future moves? We invite you to check our Oil Update. Have a nice read.

The most important event for the oil market since 2008 is already behind us. Last week’s OPEC cut deal fuelled hopes among investors and produces that the global oil glut can finally begin to shrink, which pushed the price of crude oil sharply higher and resulted in a fresh 2016 high. Despite this undoubtedly positive decision, we should keep in mind that this year’s reduction was much smaller in comparison to 2008 (as a reminder, back then the cartel agreed to cut 2.2 million barrels per day). Additionally, Libya and Nigeria are exempted from making cuts and their production increased by 140,000 barrels per day in the previous month. On top of that, drilling activity in U.S. is still accelerating. Will crude oil climb any further in these circumstances? We invite you to check our Oil Update. Have a nice read.

The combination of an increasing doubts over OPEC’s ability to cut output to 32.5-33 million barrels per day, rising crude oil supplies (with the biggest rise in crude supplies in the U.S. since at least 1984 in the week ended October 28 when EIA showed that the black oil stockpiles rose by 14.4 million barrels), strengthening U.S. dollar and steadily growing number of U.S. drilling rigs pushed crude oil sharply lower, erasing almost all mid-Sep – Oct upward move. Will the nearest support zone stop oil bears? Or maybe we’ll see a test of the barrier of $40? We invite you to check our Oil Update. Have a nice read.

Without a doubt the most important event of the recent month (or even the recent years) was unexpected OPEC’s decision to limit its production to a range of 32.5-33.0 million barrels per day (OPEC's current output stands at a record 33.6 million bpd). The agreement reached in Algiers (which is expected to be implemented this year) improved oil investors’ sentiment and pushed the price of the commodity above the barrier of $50. But is it enough to break above the Jun peak? What is the current picture of the oil market? Is it possible that the relationship between crude oil and gold give us more clues about future crude oil’s moves? We invite you to check our Oil Update. Have a nice read.

Crude oil has been moving back and forth in the past few weeks. Although the commodity rebounded at the beginning of the month once again, the first resistance area was strong enough to stop further improvement. Does it mean that another bigger decline is ahead us? Or maybe it’s just a bigger pause before another attack on the level of $ 50?

Jul was the worst month for oil bulls since the beginning of the year. In the previous month, the commodity lost 14% and approached the barrier of $40. In the previous week, light crude extended losses and slipped under this important technical level after the first Aug EIA weekly report showed another build in crude oil inventories. Despite this bearish news, light crude reversed and rebounded almost immediately as investors noticed that the above-mentioned bearish numbers were overshadowed by a larger-than-expected decline in gasoline inventories. Yesterday, the commodity extended gains as speculation of potential late-September freeze from OPEC affected positively investors’ sentiment. In this environment, light crude came back above $43 and invalidated earlier breakdown under short-term support. Will this event encourage oil bulls to act later in the coming weeks?
