Oil Weekly Catalysts And Direction: Short Term Downside

See Full Report
*We think oil has started a downtrend.
*Friday's jobs number could be one catalyst but there are many.
*As important as any is a confused dollar.
*KSA may not yet be holding to their plans to end the price war, which for us would be meaningful.

We may have passed the period of supply shocks for oil and entered into a period of global weakness becoming the most important factor. We see negative stock market divergence as an early confirmation of a new oil downtrend. That said, we are going to continue to let weekly price dictate direction because we think oil is one commodity where price can define itself.
Oil Divergence From Stocks: First Time Since Oct '15
While oil outperformed this year, oil and stocks (NYSEARCA:SPY) (in blue) have been moving together. This is the first apparent divergence other than the month of October 2015.
While equity investors reacted positively to Friday's jobs report, oil sold off. We'd guess the reason is that the jobs report could mean a US rate hike which would lift the dollar and slow growth.
