Crude Oil weekly downtrend opportunity based On 1.00 Lot Calculation:

  • EVENT: LOCKDOWNS AND COVID RESTRICTIONS: India’s government faced calls for a strict, national lockdown to slow a devastating surge in new coronaviorus cases. INDIA (the third largest oil consumer in the world) experiences a new Covid- 19 pandemic wave (imposing lockdown measures and curfews). The so-called double mutation (Indian variant which is a combination of the UK and South African strains) appears to be very dangerous. New Delhi (India’s Capital) entered a lockdown. India reported more than 382,691 new daily cases on Tuesday.
    India’s oil import may fall by 1 million barrels per day to only 3.1 million barrels per day. India used to import more than 5 million barrels per day before the pandemic. India’s Covid-19 crisis has pummeled demand for transport fuels to the lowest in several months. April sales of gasoline fell to 2.14 million tons, the lowest since August. Sales of diesel, the nation’s most-used fuel, in April were the lowest since October.
    Meanwhile, Japan is facing an increase in cases and a state of emergency will be declared from April 25 to May 11 in cities including Tokyo. Japan is the fourth largest oil importer in the world. Japan is considering extending the state of emergency.
  • EVENT: NUCLEAR DEAL TALKS SEEN “CONSTRUCTIVE” BETWEEN THE U.S AND IRAN (INDIRECT TALKS BETWEEN IRAN AND THE US TO RESUME ON FRIDAY IN VIENNA): Iran said it reached an agreement with parties to the 2015 nuclear deal for the Biden administration to lift a raft of economic sanctions that could propel talks aimed at restoring the historic accord. Iran is expected to bring back around 2.5 million barrels per day of oil once sanctions are lifted. Delegates will this week meet again.
