On Wednesday, the WTI crude oil has taken a bullish turn to trade at 53.05, adding +0.08% for the day. There’s no doubt that almost all of the fundamentals are supporting the bearish trend in oil. But there’s something new on the table.

Fundamentals Review: Chinese Fiscal Stimulus

During the Asian session, China’s finance ministry officials said China will step up fiscal spending this year to support its economy. Remember, Chinese GDP suffered a drop from 6.5% to 6.4% a couple of days back. Well, let’s hope this fiscal stimulus boosts some business activity in China.

Consequently, crude oil prices edged up on hopes that increased Chinese fiscal stimulus will also increase the demand for crude oil by the world’s second-biggest economy.
