The year started with fright, but the past month has seen quite the change-of-pace. Equity bulls have returned in the US and prices are bucking back up to fresh highs. Already, many are looking for the buy-the-dip to return with force, and given the Fed’s recent pivot, this can make sense. What hasn’t meshed with that return of the risk-on theme has been a seeming lack of volatility across the FX-space. The US Dollar has been caught in back-and-forth price action for the past four months, EUR/USD has shown a distaste for life above 1.1500 and even those previously clean trends in the Yen have come into question. In this webinar, I took a step back to look at price action setups across USD-related major pairs.

Oil prices moved down on Wednesday to as low as $ 55.97 per barrel due to a rise in output estimates from two major US producers and an increase in US crude reserves which ignored OPEC + efforts to limit crude oil production.

Edward Moya, senior market analyst at OANDA said that oil prices are likely to play tug-of-war here, with a reduction in production promising to counter the increase in production from the US.

Chevron Corp and Exxon Mobil Corp released projections for the Permian Basin duel on Tuesday which showed a rise in shale oil production.

If realized, the increase would strengthen opponents as dominant players in the West Texas and New Mexico refineries, with one-third of Permian production potentially under their control within five years.

Meanwhile the release of data from the American Petroleum Institute (API), an industry group, also showed a larger-than-expected increase in As's crude oil reserves.

US crude oil reserves rose 7.3 million barrels in the week ended March 1 to 451.5 million, compared to analysts' expectations for an increase of 1.2 million barrels, the APU said. Reserves at Cushing, Oklahoma, rose 1.1 million barrels.
