ZFX: Oil prices bounce back? Sentiment turns supportive

WALL33

Wednesday (April 22) Review

  

  • The oil prices finally bounced back after the dramatic drop earlier. The June WTI crude futures was up 19% mainly due to the expectation of a further production cut from OPEC+. Oil inventories surged less than expected, and tensions have been heightened between the US and Iran after Trump’s instruction, also triggering the rebound. In addition, the market is looking forward to the new economic stimulus package from the US. The three major Wall Street indexes all rose, regaining Tuesday’s lost ground, as risk appetite improved across markets.

 

  • EIA report showed that the crude oil inventories last week surged by 15 million barrels, roughly in line with expectations. The figures to some extent stabilized the oil prices as it eliminated some extremely bearish expectations.

 

  • The global outbreak of new coronavirus remains a key concern for investors, with more than 2.6 million confirmed cases worldwide and more than 180000 deaths. Although some countries have passed the peak period, the WHO warns that the new coronavirus will still exist for a long period of time.

 

  • Pelosi, Speaker of the US House of Representatives, said that the Congress will pass a nearly $500 billion economic stimulus plan on Thursday. On the other hand, President Trump revealed that the next step would be the stimulus packages of infrastructure.

 

  • Trump said that the United States is now safely restarting economic activities and will encourage each state to release the lockdown measures by step.

 

 

ZFX analyst Jacob Leung said that the recent fluctuations in market are mainly due to the collapse of oil prices, so stable oil prices will definitely help the market sentiment. However, obviously market sentiment is extremely sensitive over the past few months, and even if oil-producers become more proactive in discussing production cuts, the imbalance issue in the oil market may not be resolved in the short term. On the whole, the pandemic or the oil situation will still be expected to be uncertain until the mid of May.
