crude oil price fell on weak demand concerns 5 March 2024

Fundamental Analysis

  • Warm Winter Chill: Crude oil price saw a modest decline on Monday with anticipated prolonged voluntary output reductions by the OPEC+ coalition through mid-year being offset by challenges in demand. Despite OPEC+ announcement to extend cuts, the ending of mild winter in the Northern Hemisphere which could reduce demand counteracts the impact of the OPEC+ announcement. 

Technical Analysis

  • Technical Breakout: Crude oil price was traded lower and broke below the support level 79.50. MACD which indicate ongoing bearish momentum signal with short term bearish market structure suggest the commodity to extend its losses towards the next support level. 

  • Resistance and Targets: Should the bullish momentum persist; the price would head towards the subsequent support level 77.90 and potential breaks below the level as well. However, failure to break below accompanied by bullish signal like a bullish engulfing pattern suggest potential rebound for the commodity.
