Current trend

Today, oil price slightly strengthened, and at the moment it is testing the key resistance at 69.00.

Last Friday, Baker Hughes US Oil Rig Count grew 7 units over the past week. The market ignored the publication, as most investors fear a tightening of US-China tension, which will affect the demand negatively. However, the market’s expectations are ambiguous. On the one hand, Saudi Arabia, Russia, and the US plan to increase production, while supplies from Iran and Venezuela will be significantly reduced.

On November 4, the second block of anti-Iran sanctions against the energy sector of the country will come into force. Last week, Washington announced the readiness to take the stringent measures against countries that would continue cooperation with Iran. At the moment, US intention to reduce the purchase of Iranian oil to zero supports the instrument.

In the next 2 days, there is a lack of macroeconomic releases which may affect the instrument’s dynamics. On Wednesday, at 22:30 (GMT+2), API Weekly Crude Oil Stock release is due.
