Despite the drop in the value of the US Dollar last Friday, the price of Crude Oil has actually depreciated to $68 a barrel. This commodity currently trades inside a consolidation trend with a target level of $67.50 as the breaking point. With USD traders pricing in a downward move for the greenback, it is only natural to expect a corresponding upward movement from Crude Oil in the days ahead.

As for today, however, the forex market will likely remain inside of its current trends due to the low levels of liquidity being anticipated as a result of the bank holidays in the US and Canada. As a result, the current consolidation trend being experienced in the price of Crude Oil will likely continue, with a small downtrend in the works for today's early trading hours.
