Oil and fuel oil hedging market update

12 Jul 2017 07:57 GMT

By the Oil Desk at Freight Investor Services.



By the Oil Desk at Freight Investor Services Ltd.

Brent closed up $0.64 last night to $47.52 and WTI closed at $45.04 up $0.64. So it's Wednesday and that means another day of inaccurate data, crazy trading patterns and general market schizophrenia. The Mensa group that are API reportedly showed a whopping 8.1mn draw on crude stocks last week. If that is the case then I agree it is encouraging for the huge overhang of supply to start being absorbed via increased demand. We then had another story that EIA had "slashed" their 2018 US oil production numbers. Slashed is a bit of a strong word for what they did. I would say more like rubbing it out with one of those tiny little erasers you get on top of a pencil that does nothing apart from smudge grey lead everywhere. US production will still be at record levels next year, so it is hardly a turnaround for less crude, is it? Look, I hope that there is finally some respite for crude with EIA data later, something needs to happen to cheer the market up, but if this market thinks that EIA forecasting "lower" US production is something to behold of a bullish nature then my real name is Theresa and I like "running through fields of wheat". Stats at the usual time this week.
