Oil and fuel oil hedging market update

19 Apr 2017 12:02 GMT

By the Oil Desk at Freight Investor Services.



By the Oil Desk at Freight Investor Services Ltd.

Brent closed down 0.47 last night to $54.89 and WTI closed at $52.41 down 0.24. API showed us that we can expect a draw on crude, build on gasoline and draw on distillates - which isn't surprising seeing as summer grade gasoline is now in season in the USA. What will be interesting is the more finite details, product demand for example. I imagine that we will see an increase in refinery utilisation this evening and this can only be on the back of hope that Summer driving season will bring with it a million Ford F-150 pickup trucks queuing around the block to fill their thirsty V8's with delicious 98RON gasoline, right? Mmmm. I mean, one can hope I suppose, but if prices are stable across the barrel then why would someone from Ohio drive to Florida instead of hopping on a plane? Sterling saw itself pick up quite dramatically yesterday as Theresa decided she will call a snap election. Punchy. So watch cable as I think this is just some short covering. We shall see. I see us bouncing around $55 all day until the inevitable schizo's pile in after stats. Good day.
