Crude Oil downtrend opportunity based On 1.00 Lot Calculation:

  • Crude Oil rose for a second day on Wednesday, hitting $39.6, a 10 days high, as a hurricane Sally closed U.S. offshore oil and gas production and an IEA report showed U.S. crude inventories decreased. The US Dollar weakness also helped Crude Oil to go higher, too. Major opinions on the markets are that this increase of the Oil price wouldn't stay for a long time and the downside trend will carry on.
  • Despite this 2-day price increase, the Global fears about future Oil demand stay very high. Oil producers and traders are painting a bleak picture for a recovery in global fuel demand as the Covid-19 pandemic rages on, hammering economies.
  • The International Energy Agency also reduced its forecast for oil demand this year on Tuesday, because of a cautious outlook for the economic recovery from the pandemic. That came after the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) said it expects world oil demand to fall more sharply than earlier forecast.
  • Imports of oil in August into Japan, the world’s fourth-biggest importer of crude, fell by more than a quarter from a year earlier, official data showed on Wednesday.
  • Previously, China, the world's biggest importer of Crude oil, reported that it will decrease Oil imports in September after five straight months of increase.
  • Additional pressure on the Crude oil price came after Saudi Arabia and Iraq, both decreased selling for October price for Asia and the US.
