In today’s video we update our analysis on WTI futures, after it hit out bullish target at the October 2018 high. The FOMC minutes released at 19:00 BST has seen the dollar rise and further weigh on commodities, which saw an important reversal candle on copper prices. Therefore, the basic theory here is that should the Fed’s minutes present more details for tapering, it could strengthen the dollar, and further weigh on copper and oil.

We also update out analysis on America International Group (AIG) as it broke an important support level to suggest its next leg lower is finally underway.
