Analysts at the investment bank see a short term boost for prices into the third quarter of 2019.

Say there are transient risks to the upside
  • prior forecast of $66/barrel (Brent) raised to $74-$76
  • After Q3, Permian basin de-bottleneck should improve supply.
Looking for demand to improve:
  • A demand led move higher in the face of current high skepticism toward accelerating economic activity
  • volatility created by Iran-U.S. tensions
  • Nonetheless, the coming weeks may be the first window for this support to play out as the economic data calendar moves to its window of greater relevance and influences on risky assets, including oil.

Fed's Rosengren: US economy doing quite well, not having a slowdown

Comments from Rosengren There's no doubt that he won't be supporting a 50 bps cut. I think we can put that entire notion to bed. I think Powell deserves a lot of blame for that talk. The market was showing a good chance of 50 bps and he kept sending out dovish messages. The market is still showing an 18% chance of 50bps.

That quickly sent USD/CAD up to 1.3110 on the headline but the gain didn't last, in part due to details of the report that showed an odd drop in grocery store sales as a main culprit. USD/CAD retreated to 1.3070 shortly after then fell further late as Iran worries prompted a rebound in crude.
