Crude Oil weekly uptrend opportunity based On 1.00 Lot Calculation:

  • ANALYSTS REMAIN BULLISH ON OIL PRICES: Crude oil trades above the mark of $60 as Goldman Sachs predicted Brent oil prices could advance $70 a barrel (Crude oil~$67) in the second quarter (Q2). They see Brent oil at $75 in Q3 (Crude Oil ~ $72). Morgan Stanley sees Brent oil at 70 in Q3 (Crude Oil ~ $67). Big banks in the US, including Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley, expect the oil demand to surpass the oil supply in the coming period to drain the inventories glut (oil excess) built up during the Covid-19 pandemic by the summer.
  • GLOBAL OIL STOCKPILES CONTINUED TO FALL: In addition, US oil inventories fell last week by 7.26 million barrels to stay at the lowest in almost 12 months. The Chinese oil inventories are at its lowest in a year.
  • US Stimulus to boost the US economy and therefore increase oil demand (Biden asks for $1.9 trillion, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen recommends to “ACT BIG”, referring to the amount of fiscal stimulus).
  • Covid-19 Vaccine Rollout across the world has helped the sentiment and improved beliefs that the pandemic could end by the end of this year. Meanwhile, the numbers of new daily covid-19 cases continued to fall across many countries in the world, including the U.S. and U.K., which increases beliefs that economies will open at bigger scale in the coming period.
