What Causes and Influences the Price Of Crude Oil?
One of the primary causes of the price of crude oil is global economic activity, especially Asian economic activity. Two markers of economic activity tied to the price of oil are the Hang Seng (HSI) and FTSE 100 (FTSE) stock market indexes. As the HSI and FTSE go up, the price of crude oil will go up.
Other influences on the price of crude oil are certain currency exchange rates. The EU Euro (EUR), Canadian dollar (CAD) and Singapore dollar (SGD) versus the US dollar are good indicators of where the price of crude oil is going. As the EUR, CAD and SGD strengthen versus the USD, the price of crude oil will go up.
