Crude Oil (USOUSD, XTIUSD) BUY – 10th August 2021

Crude Oil (USOUSD, XTIUSD) BUY – 10th August 2021 (Closed)

Afternoon team,

Crude oil has sold off due to concerns about the Delta variant of the covid-19 virus. This could have been an overreaction in the market as crude oil sold off alongside gold prices which have recovered slightly.

The USDCAD has set up a possible head and shoulders formation, therefore we see the possibility of a recovery on crude prices leading into the OPEC oil report later this week – this may set up a trade on the USDCAD later today.

Technically there is a double bottom structure therefore we are expecting a bounce at these lows.
