Brent Crude Oil: general review

Current trend

The report of the Energy Information Administration of the US Department of Energy showed the reduction of oil reserves in the USA by over 5.2 mln barrels which gave the prices stong growth momentum. The strengthening was supported by the monthly OPEC report published on Thursday. The main idea of the report was that the member states of the cartel and external exporters have reached consensus on the extension of OPEC+ agreement. The final decision on this matter is expected to be made in Vienna at the meeting of all member countries.

No important releases for the instrument are due today. One may pay attention to Manufacturing PMI from New York that comes before federal data (with a positive outlook). More attention should be paid to tomorrow's report of IEA on the process of fulfillment of OPEC+. During the week reports by API and EIA may also be of interest. as they may confirm or disprove the tendency for further reduction of US oil reserves.
The most likely forecast for the near future will be the continuation of upward correction of oil.

Resistance levels: 52.60, 53.00, 53.75.

Trading tips

USD/CHF: general review

Current trend

Since the middle of the previous week the pair has been in the downward correction. Both recent data from the USA (retail sales and CPI) and Switzerland (CPI and manufacturers price index) were quite weak. However, the investors worried more about the fate of the US currency which pushes the pair down. Additional interest of the market to USD is explained by the expectations of June FOMC meeting and its interest rate decision. In these terms any signs of slowdown in the US economy put considerable pressure on USD, as the market worries about postponing the interest rate increase.

Today no important statistics from Switzerland is expected. From the USA the market is waiting for the data on the number of new construction permits and houses under construction in April. The most important release will be the volume of industrial output in the USA: the indicator is expected to fall from 0.5% to 0.4% which may cause further decrease of the pair.

Support and resistance

Support levels: 0.9930, 0.9850, 0.9780, 0.9700.
Resistance levels: 1.0000, 1.0050, 1.0110, 1.0180.

Trading tips

Short positions may be opened at the market price with target at 0.9850 and stop-loss at 0.9950.
Alternatively, buy positions may be opened from the level of 1.0000 with targets at 1.0050, 1.0110 and stop-loss at 0.9960.
