What awaits the Oil Market in February?

What awaits the Oil Market in February?

Information is not investment advice

The Backstory

Western countries are trying to find other options for oil and gas supplies after a 10th package of sanctions, which will put more pressure on Russian oil and decrease global oil supply. Italy, for example, is in talks with Libya. 

However, the lingering question is "will the reopening of the Chinese economy pool enough demand to alter the decline in the outcome of oil price in February?" 

How does this affect the Forex market?

Oil prices usually work as a leading indicator for the US dollar. Rising prices lead to inflation increase, which forces the Fed to become more hawkish. As a result, the greenback strengthens.

On the other hand, lower oil prices cool down inflation, making the Federal Reserve to act more dovish. As a result, the USD declines.

What do the charts have to say?

In light of the fundamental breakdown above, we will draw our conclusions from the outlook of price on the charts using price action.



On the daily timeframe, Brent has been steadily bearish since March, 2022, declining by over 33% from the high. At the present, price has created a downward channel and is currently retesting the trendine resistance. The presence of the 100-Day SMA at that level as a confluence simply makes a stronger case for a bearish continuation from that point.

Analysts’ Expectations:

 Direction: Bearish

Target: $80

Invalidation: $90

XTIUSD - Daily Timeframe


On the daily timeframe, XTIUSD formed a rising channel inside a downward channel. The implication of this is that the point of intersection of trendlines from both channels acts as a strong area of resistance. Considering the presence of the 100-Day SMA as an added confluence, it is only logical to expect lower prices on oil over the next couple of days.

Analysts’ Expectations:

Direction: Bearish

Target: $77

Invalidation: $82


Based on the analyses above, it is safe to expect bearish price action of the oil market.

How Will BoJ Meeting Affect the Yen

Hold onto your hats, folks! The Japanese yen took a nosedive after the Bank of Japan (BOJ) left its ultra-loose policy settings unchanged, including its closely watched yield curve control (YCC) policy. But wait, there's more! The BOJ also removed its forward guidance, which had previously pledged to keep interest rates at current or lower levels. So, what's the scoop? Market expectations had been subdued going into the meeting, but some were still hoping for tweaks to the forward guidance to prepare for an eventual exit from the bank's massive stimulus
