WTI (Western Texas Intermediary)

We are only showing the most recent forecasts from the last leg down.

The reason for the drop which blinded most analysts back then, where many, which caused some large oil hedgefunds to be in the red,  and which caused

many longer term investors to overstay their long positions.

1] Dollar kept going up, due to interest cuts, and may go up further as a flight to safety, and more interest hikes. As the dollar goes up oil goes down, this is to not strain other economies.

2] Iran embargo was meant to fail, and it did. However the embargo caused a massive over supply of oil.

3] Continued Shale efficiencies dumbfounded the investors and analysts. Shale producers will get even more efficient in the future.

4] Russia will not be able to significantly cut down production until spring of 2019, due to pipes freezing if production is significantly cut during freezing month.

5] Right now we have no catalyst to make a case for a bottom.

Risk Disclosure

DISCLAIMER: Futures, stocks and options trading involves substantial risk of loss and is not suitable for every investor. The valuation of futures, stocks and options may fluctuate, and, as a result, clients may lose more than their original investment. The impact of seasonal and geopolitical events is already factored into market prices. The highly leveraged nature of futures trading means that small market movements will have a great impact on your trading account and this can work against you, leading to large losses or can work for you, leading to large gains.

If the market moves against you, you may sustain a total loss greater than the amount you deposited into your account. You are responsible for all the risks and financial resources you use and for the chosen trading system. You should not engage in trading unless you fully understand the nature of the transactions you are entering into and the extent of your exposure to loss. If you do not fully understand these risks you must seek independent advice from your financial adviser.
