As Crude oil extends declines in risk-off market sentiment, how much is a barrel of WTI & Brent crude oil? Find out on the 9 February Crude Oil Price Technical Forecast.
9 February, GKFX – Crude oil continued its recent slide yesterday, WTI crude last seen going for 60.50/barrel in Asia trading, with Brent crude near 64.30/barrel.
Oil has followed equities and other commodities’ cues lately, dumping down the charts as risk aversion continues to grip traders across all markets, with positive economic growth in the US sparking rounds of inflation fears across the board and sending bond yields into multi-year highs, despite a notable lack of willingness from central banks outside of the US to begin discussing rate increases.
Coupled with the increase in US crude output that has seen the US pump and process more oil than ever before, surpassing their own previous record of 10 billion barrels/day as well as the total output capacity of Saudi Arabia, significant downside pressure continues to pile onto the energy source.
