Oil Bullish or Bearish

Recommended Posts

What do you see Oil in next 3 months ? Bullish or Bearish ? Is Oil really heading towards 20 $ a barrel as major research firms of the world predict.

 

Your view please.

pc speak =

“After previous two weeks’ rather high inventory numbers (7.8M) we should see the inventories at 3.1M level. However, the actual numbers have lately deviated quite strongly from the analyst expectations.”

interpretation of the pc speak = “we’re trying to help talk these inventory numbers down… but the freakn tanks are filling up and running over…”

...close to B.E. on long scale trade (previously discussed in the Gold Bullish or Bearish thread)

 

REGARDLESS - will be 'hedging' up aggressively on short side over the next couple of weeks...

 

I’m not always right... but when I’m wrong, I’m still right ;)

 

(ps it's not apparent, but you can accurately project humility here... not hubris)

:cool:

As noted earlier, have been building a long scale trade in far far out CL futures... in the green now...

Planning to start more heavily locking it in with shorts on closer month contracts on approaches to ~46...

 

...will still build this scale trade for a couple more years ...

planning to add to it all the way down into the low teens...

 

:roll eyes:

btw - scale trades hog up capital

and

:helloooo:

take a long time ...

 

:missy:

not in my wheel house really...

Crude oil is the new widow maker. It trades heavier than a wet dawg in a New York thunderstorm. Rallies have no legs and its seems the only bid these days are the shorts with their family jewels caught in a vice grip.

 

Fwiw I’m still in this same long scale trade.

Same plan. Have capital allocated for a ‘crash’ in energy prices... which may never happen...:missy:

 

fwiw - On many levels this is a peak technology / peak infrastructure play more than it is a peak supply or peak production play . Most would equate technology / infrastructure with production. In this case, I think it's better to seg them out...

 

Getting exasperated with rolling it every quarter - but hey, that’s scale trading...

 

'Hedging' tactics have changed since last post from selected / fixed level using stops underneath to overboughts using 'limit's above... but already looking at cycles for when to shift tactics back to fixed level / stops underneath ...

 

Average net long price is down to ~ 34 - after 'successfully' trading/ (hedging and lifting) 7 of the last 4 :confused: :rofl: good downdrafts using close month contracts.

Back to work...

 

to ‘hedge’ CLV18 longs, incrementing trailing stop .10 -.30 per day with CLG18 contracts. Currently they trail about 2.50 under yesterday’s CLG18 lows ...

 

the current 'joke' around here is what how much smaller, unleveraged positions in btc have absolutely kicked this position's ass the whole way through...

:roll eyes:

 

:missy:

crammed most trailing stops to just under this weeks CLG18 low ... to ‘hedge’ CLV18 longs

 

(starting to 'imagine' an exit to this trade and starting to build a short scale trade in CL - but don't know yet when or where I would begin... summerish? mid 70's ish???.

just my imagination :doh: :)

... CL "doesn't even know me"... time to do some cycle and resonance work...)

How many currencies are, in effect, mere derivatives of the USD?

For example, the new petroyuan - (beyond being some corrupt chinese exchange startup entrepreneurs’ wet dreams,) meaningless until they take off the peg to the dollar.

Wars and rumors of wars... and... fiats and rumors of fiats...


‘Somebody’ wants 90 to 100 barrel... but


 I’m moving my hedge stops up under this run in CL ... these recent up waves appear corrective, ie not impulsive, to me...

    • Date : 23rd August 2019. MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 23rd August 2019.FX News Today A confluence of factors whipped the markets around Thursday heading into the Jackson Hole Symposium and Chair Powell’s comments Friday at 10 ET. Hawkish remarks from George (she dissented against the July easing) and Harker (who votes in 2020) weighed on Treasuries and erased early gains from Wall Street. Minutes from both Fed and ECB meetings were not quite the all out dovish signal that some had been hoping for and comments from Fed members yesterday also showed a degree of caution with regard to further easing measures. The curve in the US steepened again after inverting briefly overnight, the curve flattened and inverted further in Japan. Stock markets across Asia moved mostly higher although gains remained contained by caution. New Zealand’s central bank governor said he could afford to wait before declining on additional easing measures. Onshore Yuan set at its weakest for 11 years. Japanese core consumer inflation at a 2-year low in July. Meanwhile lingering geopolitical trade tensions and political jitters in Hong Kong, Italy and the UK add to an uncertain backdrop. US futures are also cautiously moving higher. The WTI future is trading at USD 55.37 per barrel. Charts of the DayTechnician’s Corner EURUSD returned to 3-week lows of 1.1064 today, after rallying to session highs of 1.1099 following the sub-50 US manufacturing PMI. Negative European yields appear to be taking their toll on the currency, keeping the Dollar in demand in place for relatively high yielding US Treasuries. This has likely been a major factor keeping EURUSD under pressure, especially ahead of likely ECB easing in September, and perceptions that the Fed will not be as aggressive in easing as previously thought. Key EURUSD level is the 27-month low of 1.1027 seen on August 1. USDJPY rallied to 106.64 highs. The risk-sensitive pairing can be expected to consolidate into today’s much anticipated speech from Fed chair Powell, from Jackson Hole. GBPUSD: Sterling had its best single day rally since March 13 against the Dollar. Cable’s high was 1.2273, which is the loftiest level seen since late July. The gains were sparked by comments made by German’s Merkel, who indicated that a solution to the Irish border backstop conundrum is doable by the October-31 Brexit deadline. UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson followed this up by saying at his joint press conference with France’s Macron that he was encouraged by his talks in Berlin yesterday, and that a deal, he thinks, can be done ahead of October 31. Macron, said, however, that while he has always respected the UK’s decision to leave the EU, the European project has to be protected, to which the Irish backstop remains an important part of ensuring this. Merkel’s remarks were little more than rhetorical platitudes, though enough to trigger a short squeeze in a heavy shorted currency. Main Macro Events Today   Jackson Hole Symposium – Day 2 Retail Sales ex Autos (CAD, GMT 12:30) – Retail sales are expected to have decreased in Canada, with consensus forecasts suggesting a -0.5% m/m decline should be registered in June and an unchanged ex-autos component at 0.3%. In May, Retail sales were disappointing, falling 0.1% for total sales and declining 0.3% for the ex-autos component. The decline in sales was driven by a 2.0% tumble in food and beverage stores. The report casts some doubt on the resiliency of the consumer sector to the ongoing parade of worrisome geopolitical and trade developments.
