The recent attack on the Saudi oil production facilities in Abqaiq and Khurais caused the price of Crude Oil (@CL) to spike. Rising up to 18%, CL prices have broken out of daily consolidation, into overhead supply. This Saudi attack brings uncertainty in crude prices, and I share my analysis in today’s update.
While the daily price has broken our consolidation range, the weekly price has also broken it’s consolidation triangle. This was the bullish move we expected from CL, but definitely not the reason behind it.
It’s difficult to trade when global economic events occur, causing volatility to spike and prices to rise. But with the right training in risk management, you minimize any risk potential and are always ready for unintended consequences.
The potential consequences to this sudden move in oil will be noticeable. Look for oil exporting nations to benefit (CAD) and for oil importing nations to suffer (EUR). Risk-off currencies like USD and JPY will benefit while AUD and NZD would suffer.
Bottom line, the price of Crude will probably stay higher, and continue to increase if the break of supply isn’t fixed soon. This Saudi attack brings uncertainty in crude prices, that’s for sure. But if you know how to manage risk, you know how to trade. Learn to trade the Hawkeye way.
