Crude Oil Brent (F) Futures Market News and Commentary

Jun WTI Crude Closes at a 2-week high on Supply Concerns and Iran Tensions

June WTI crude oil (CLM19) on Monday closed up by +0.34 (+0.54%) and July Brent crude oil (CBN19) closed down by -0.24 (-0.33%). June RBOB gasoline (RBK19) closed down by -0.0374 (-1.83%). The energy complex settled mixed Monday with Jun WTI crude oil at a fresh 2-week high. Crude oil found support Monday on a weaker dollar and increased Iran tensions. In addition, Saudi Energy Minister Khalid Al-Falih urged OPEC+ members at a meeting in Jeddah over the weekend to "stay the course" on crude output cuts. Tensions with Iran intensified after President Trump tweeted on Sunday that, "If Iran wants to fight, that will be the official end of Iran." Also, Saudi Arabia ratcheted up the rhetoric as it said it does not want a war with Iran but will respond "with strength and determination" if Iran decides to start one. Last Friday afternoon's weekly data from Baker Hughes also provided carry-over support for crude prices after the data showed active U.S. oil rigs fell by -3 rigs to a 13-month low of to 802 rigs. On the negative side is concern the ongoing U.S./China trade conflict will undercut economic growth and energy demand. Last Wednesday's EIA data showed that U.S. crude oil inventories as of May 10 were +3.5% above the 5-year average, gasoline inventories were -2.4% below the 5-year average, and distillate inventories were -4.6% below the 5-year average.
