Dollars and oil prices

Again, the dollar and oil prices began to show negative (-) correlation
In general, dollar and oil prices have a negative correlation. However, the change in the dollar in 2016 and 2017 did not have a significant impact on oil price volatility. When the dollar and oil prices showed a positive correlation, oil prices were affected by the supply and demand of the crude oil market rather than macro factors. In other words, the impact of the dollar since 2016 was insignificant because of concerns over oversupply. However, recently, dollar and oil prices began to show a negative correlation. This is because the oversupply has been partially resolved, but in 1985 it is too early to predict oil price surge. However, unless concerns over oversupply rise as in 2014, the negative correlation between the dollar and oil prices is likely to continue for the time being.
