Fuel Oil Market (April 9)

Crack opened at -10.57 but weakened to -11.30 throughout the day as brent rallied.

Over the past few weeks, the market for lower viscosity fuel oil had been boosted by concerns of tight blendstock supplies as well as ample inventories of high-viscosity fuel oil, trade sources said.

By contrast, firm buying interest for 380 cSt lifted cash premiums of the higher viscosity fuel to its highest since March 14. Four cargo trades were reported in the Singapore trading window, totalling 60,000 tonnes of 380-cst fuel oil and 20,000 tonnes of 180 cSt fuel oil.
