1. Forex Market Insight
EUR/USD rebounded on Thursday, 13th October 2022, closing up 0.77% at 0.9777.
It is possible that the recent rally is a position squeeze caused by premature hopes for a Fed policy adjustment, rather than a proxy for a change in trend.
The Russian-Ukrainian conflict, the uneven recovery of the pandemic, and the drought across much of the continent have combined to create severe energy shortages, high inflation, supply disruptions, and great uncertainty about the future of the European economy.

GBP Intraday Trend Analysis
The pound rallied big on Thursday, 13th October 2022, closing up 2.04% at 1.1325 on reports that the British government may make changes in its fiscal plans.
The main reasons why the pound should continue to fall in the future are declining global growth expectations, unfavorable risk sentiment, and a large current account deficit in the U.K. as it faces the risk of energy disruptions over the winter.

WTI Crude Oil
Oil prices closed about 2% higher Thursday, 13th October 2022, as lower levels of pre-winter diesel stocks sparked buying and reversed losses after higher-than-expected crude and gasoline inventories.
The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) said distillate stocks, including diesel and heating oil, fell by 4.9 million barrels to 106.1 million barrels in the week ended 7th Oct 2022, the lowest since May, compared with expectations for a 2 million barrel decline.
This prompted investors to take a dim view of the unexpected 2 million barrel increase in gasoline inventories and the larger-than-expected increase in crude oil inventories, which reached nearly 10 million barrels.
