Crude Oil Market Commentary – Blue Lacy Advisors, LLC
Minneapolis, MN | September 22, 2022 | By: Steve Sinos, Blue Lacy Advisors LLC
Implied volatility (IV) spent another week at the upper end of the previous month’s range. Across the first six months of the forward curve, at-the-money IV was above 45. For the first four months of 2023 futures, IV exceeded 50. That level of volatility roughly calculates into a daily price range of ≥$2.75/bbl. Four of the five days last week exceeded this expected volatility, with the average daily change of $3, but Friday’s close was just 18 cents below 2 Sep 22.
