Gold, WTI crude oil Q4 outlook

The surge in bond yields finally began to take its toll on gold prices as the end of gold with, with gold falling against basket of currencies alongside the US dollar. And that paints a grim picture for bulls at the beginning of Q4. Yet it has been a very different story for WTI crude oil which has rallied 30% in Q4. But can we really expect a similar performance in Q4?

WTI analysis: Crude oil in spotlight – Technical Tuesday

Investors’ focus will remain on oil prices after their recent sharp gains amid the ongoing supply cuts by the OPEC and allies, and in light of today’s bullish reversal. Owing to concerns over a crude supply deficit, there is a good chance we could see oil prices climb above $100 and thus stoke inflationary worries further.

WTI crude oil, ASX 200 analysis: Asian Open – 26/09/2023

Price action remains choppy on WTI crude oil's daily timeframe, which further backs up the case that last week's bearish reversal candle marked the beginning of a correction. The question now is how deep can it retrace before dip buyers seek to return in force? The ASX 200 has shown tentative signs of stability above 7,000, but given the bearish breakdown seen last week we prefer to seek bearish setups around resistance levels.

WTI crude oil finally set to mean revert? Asian Open - 20/09/2023

Whilst WTI crude oil made light work of breaking above $90, it faltered around $95 and left a potential key reversal day below historical highs. And with the potential for the Fed to be more hawkish than money markets are currently pricing in, it could shake the bullish oil tree and trigger a correction against its strong trend.

EUR/USD headed for 105? WTI crude oil hits YTD high: Asian Open

The ECB delivered a relatively dovish hike whilst US data once again outperformed. And that was the perfect catalyst to send EUR/USD to a 4-low (and speculative positioning suggests there may be further downside to come). WTI crude oil rose above $90, and it appears to have more fuel in the tank to perhaps head for the October high.

WTI crude oil, AUD/USD analysis: Asian Open – 28/08/2023

Jerome Powell delivered a slightly more hawkish message than expected at Jackson Hole, by suggesting that the Fed may need to raise rates at least one more time. This helped the US dollar rise for a sixth week and send the 2-year yield to a 17-year high. Still, we see the potential for AUD/USD to hold above key support and WTI crude oil rise to $82.

WTI crude oil analysis: Asian Open – 8th July 2023

Monday's trade saw WTI hand back almost all of Friday’s gain and produce a 2-bar reversal pattern (dark cloud cover). And with that comes the potential for a deeper pullback, so long as prices remain beneath yesterday’s high. For today, we'll keep a close eye on the January high, which is likely to be a pivotal level today.
