The Digital Currency Era is Upon Us

The Digital Currency Era has already taken the markets by surprise with a market cap of over $160 Billion and when we told clients about Bitcoin, some were sceptical and emailed us back with comments such as “Crazy”. Guess what?! Bitcoin smashed through $5000 and now this could be the new base and well done to those clients that had belief in us.

Top 5 Reasons for Oil to drop to 25$.

  1. The Electrical Vehicle revolution has taken the world by storm and believe it or not 70 percent of the world’s Oil is used for transportation.
  2. Alternative Energy Markets have really gone head-to-head with the Oil giants in the last 3 years and are gathering steam.
  3. The 2nd half of 2017 has seen the Oil Markets become a static demand, and just cannot gather any pace. The outlook for 2018 also looks really weak as the International Energy Agency (IEA) said the global outlook for Oil Markets in 2018 could put a dampener on hopes for higher prices.
  4. Bear Traders have been in control of the markets since 2014 due to weak demand when the price of Oil collapsed from $120 a barrel and since then every single peak in Oil price has just been sold into as simple as that and believe me Opec has not helped one bit in this process. Platinum Analysts believe that this is the “End of the Oil Era” and in the next 5-8 Years Oil could be below and stay below 20$.
  5. Platinum Analysts work with a lot of clients from the Oil and Gas Sector and trust me, they talk to us and tell us of the consistency of living on the edge due to low demand in Oil, this October the number of rigs for Oil and Gas in the North Sea, which includes the shallow waters of the United Kingdom; Norway; Denmark; Germany and the Netherlands, plunged to an all-time low. On top of those losses, companies operating from Norway to the Netherlands have also announced staff cuts.

Platinum Technical Analysis:

  1. Understand which Major Trading Pattern applies
  2. Identify the critical Supply and Demand levels, not support and resistance
  3. Confirm if you have Fibonacci Confluence
  4. Identify your Entry
  5. Have a justified Stop Loss to protect your losses
  6. Understand your Risk and Reward.

So now let’s apply all the above to our Oil trade


WEEKLY VIEW OIL: Crude Oil Trading Strategy

Since we know that the fundamentals of Oil are telling us this market has no other direction than down, turning to the technical chart, we clearly see Oil is approaching a Supply Price we should be looking to sell from. We have had 2 phases of Accumulation/Distribution before in Oil and this approach to the $54.00 could be ideal for us to short this market with a considerably small stop with a huge risk/reward in our favour.

We have also outlined the various major supply and demand areas on the chart which you should place alerts on.

How to trade OIL:

A) Short Oil @ 54.00 or the nearest zone with 120 points stop loss and a target of 26.00
