Crude Oil
The sharp fall in spot crude oil prices over the last 10days sits in sharp contrast to macro-warranted model value. In the case of Brent, while spot has fallen 5.2%, macro fair value has risen 8.7%. For WTI, the equivalent numbers are -6.0% & +11.6%.

Commodities always come with a health warning & require strong risk management given the propensity for adverse weather, geopolitical headlines or supply shocks to spark substantial volatility. However, macro model confidence is robust & both have now triggered Divergence signals on Qi. Moreover, back-testing the current -1.1 sigma FVGs on Brent & WTI, results in hit rates in the 70-75% area with double digit average returns.
