Energy Complex Closes Lower on Global Economic Concerns and a Bearish EIA Report

Dec WTI crude oil (CLZ19) on Thursday closed down by -0.35 (-0.61%), Jan Brent crude oil (CBF20) closed down -0.09 (-0.13%), and Dec RBOB gasoline (RBZ19) closed down by -0.207 (-1.26%).

The energy complex closed lower Thursday on trade uncertainty, global growth concerns, and a larger-than-expected build in weekly EIA crude inventories.

Trade uncertainty between the U.S. and China is negative for economic growth and energy demand prospects after China's Commerce Ministry said on Thursday that removing existing tariffs was an important condition for any trade deal.

High U.S. nat-gas production continues to be a bearish factor with lower-48 nat-gas production Thursday up +10.9 y/y at 93.684 bcf/d. Strong U.S. nat-gas output has caused U.S. nat-gas inventories to rise sharply in recent months to the current level of +14.9% y/y from -22.3% y/y last March.
