Current trend

Last week, oil price grew moderately due to a decline in USD.

Last Friday, comments from Jerome Powell on the lack of signs of accelerated inflation and the negative effects of the trade war with China made investors doubt in the possibility of raising rates in December. In addition, last week, the decline in oil reserves and the reduction in US oil rigs number supported the instrument in the short term.

The resumption of anti-Iranian sanctions by the US, which will take effect in November, positively affects prices. Most experts believe that its introduction will contribute to a significant reduction in exports of "black gold" in Iran.

Today, there is a lack of key macroeconomic releases, so, moderate strengthening of the instrument is expected. Tomorrow, at 22:30 (GMT+2), API Crude Oil Stocks release will be published. Considering the increasing operating costs and the decline in rig count number, the instrument will continue to strengthen in the short term.
