Oil Market Buoyed by Strong Caixin Services PMI Performance

Oil Caixin Services PMI

Oil demand rises as Caixin Services PMI accelerates—key events, including the ADP report and Powell’s speech, impact currencies.

The latest data from the Caixin Services PMI revealed a notable uptick in services activity in March, signaling a robust economic quarter for China. The PMI reading of 52.7 surpassed market expectations, indicating accelerated growth as new business surged at the fastest rate this year. Additionally, business confidence improved, reflecting optimism among service providers.

Expectations anticipate that this acceleration in economic activity in the world’s third-largest economy will sustain higher demand for crude oil. WTI oil prices were trading around $85.50 per barrel during the Asia session, supported by positive economic indicators from China.

Looking ahead to the Europe and US sessions, market participants are eyeing key events that could impact trading dynamics:

ADP Employment Report: Market analysts anticipate a slight increase in job growth for March, with a projected figure of 148K, compared to the previous month’s reading of 140K. Any deviation from these estimates could influence the performance of the US dollar.

ISM Services PMI: Following a solid rebound in the manufacturing sector, analysts expect services activity to expand for the 15th consecutive month. Investors will also closely monitor the price component for signs of inflationary pressures.

Fed Chair Powell Speaks: Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell’s remarks at Stanford’s Business, Government, and Society Forum could inject volatility into the markets, particularly towards the end of the US session.
