Crude oil prices slumped over -4% on profit-taking as the decision after the OPEC/non-OPEC meeting was in line with market expectations. Recall that, after OPEC/non-OPEC announced to take coordinated action to reduce output late last year (effective January 2017), crude oil benchmarks recovered from low-40 levels in November 2016 to above US$55/bbl in January this year.

Greenback Soft on Uncertain Rate Hike Path after June

Central bank news captured the spotlight on Wednesday, with the FOMC minutes and the BOC meeting the major market movers. For the former, while policymakers basically affirmed a rate hike in June, the future rate path remained uncertain. Concerns over the US economic outlook were aggravated by the indications that the Fed’s balance sheet reduction might begin in as soon as later this year. By contrast, market sentiment was buoyed by BOC’s more upbeat comments on global and domestic growth developments.

Crude oil prices extend last week’s strength in Asia Monday. With both benchmarks holding above US$ 50/bbl, the market is awaiting the OPEC/non-OPEC meeting schedule on May 25. The market has priced in an output extension deal until March 2018. We are concerned that the deal would be incapable of revitalizing the energy prices further from current levels due to US’ rapid shale investment. In the FX market, US dollar stabilized after the selloff over the past week.

Energy and precious metal prices were generally higher over the past week, led by weakness in US dollar which was weighed down by political crisis in the White House. On the oil market, the positive sentiment was also driven by expectations that the OPEC/non-OPEC meeting, scheduled on May 25, would bring agreement of output cut extension of 18 months.
