First Oil Release After OPEC Meeting
Information is not investment advice
What will happen?
US Energy Information Administration will reveal Crude oil inventories on February 9, 17:30 GMT+2. This release is considerable for Crude (XTI/USD), Brent (XBR/USD), and CAD movement. The loonie (Canadian dollar) is on the list because Canada has a sizable energy sector, and oil is still the most used energy source in the world. The release tells about changes in the number of barrels of crude oil held in inventory by commercial firms during the past week.
Possible Crude and Brent moves
One of the last releases on January 26 turned out to be bigger than expected. Usually, it is a bearish sign for oil because of the oversupply. After the release, the uptrend in XTI/USD stopped, and crude oil lost around 2% of the price, sliding from $87.50 to $85.90 per barrel.
If the tendency remains, high inventories numbers will press on US oil prices. And in the case of a massive plunge, $85.00 per barrel is the most robust support level.
How to trade on crude oil release?
Higher-than-expected numbers will press on the XBR and XTI. Moreover, USD/CAD may fall due to the major role of Canada in energy production.
- If the actual number is higher than expected – XTI and XBR will fall.
- Otherwise – XTI and XBR may rise slightly.
