Oil has benefited from the recent dollar decline, with both UKOil (Brent) and USOil (WTI) CFDs moving into the neutral areas between their blue bands (green rectangles). However, the supply shock pressures caused by Russia's invasion of Ukraine in February this year persist. In addition, President Biden's visit to Saudi Arabia failed to secure a deal to boost production. Thus, the moves on a relative basis may be a bullish development on these fundamentals, but the price will need to maintain these positions.
