Technicals On Commodity And Correlations Charts Between Eur/USD vs Oil and Oil vs Baltic Dry Index

Posted on CNBC.com

  • The price of a barrel of crude could lose another $20 and the broader commodity market could slump by a third as the recent downtrend is set to intensify, Phil Roberts, technical analyst from Barclays Capital, told CNBC.

    The commodity market is still very much pricing in a further slow down and the signs we're seeing at the moment suggest that the process is intensifying rather than diminishing," Roberts said while taking a technical look at the Goldman Sachs Commodities Index.

    The GSCI, which tracks a broad basket of commodities including oil, wheat and lean hogs, could lose another 30 percent to 40 percent, according to Roberts.

And ironically, dearest Kathy has loaded two simple charts indicating the correlation of oil prices and EUR/USD. see: http://www.kathylien.com/site/us-dollar/why-is-the-eurusd-not-rallying

There are two charts to note, the daily chart: http://www.kathylien.com/site/wp-content/uploads/2008/10/eurusdoil101608_daily.jpg and the hourly chart http://www.kathylien.com/site/wp-content/uploads/2008/10/eurusdoil101608.jpg

And lastly, I would also note the correlation chart drawn on the oil and BDI from Kathy also. See posting http://www.kathylien.com/site/us-dollar/chiming-in-on-the-baltic-dry-index for the correlation chart: http://www.kathylien.com/site/wp-content/uploads/2008/10/baltic101608.jpg
