Futures Market News and Commentary

Crude Oil Prices Rally on Weak Dollar and Brexit Optimism and Shake off Bearish EIA Report

Nov WTI crude oil (CLX19) on Thursday closed up by +0.57 (+1.07%), Dec Brent crude oil (CBZ19) closed up by +0.49 (+0.82%), and Nov RBOB gasoline (RBX19) closed down -0.0023 (-0.14%). The energy complex settled mixed Thursday as a weaker dollar offset a larger-than-expected build in weekly EIA crude inventories. A slump in the dollar index to a 1-1/2 month Thursday was supportive for crude prices. Also, an easing of U.S./China trade tensions boosted crude after China's Ministry of Commerce said Thursday that China is currently working on the "Phase 1" deal with the U.S. and is discussing the next phase of trade talks and hopes it can make progress with the U.S. in removing tariffs. Brexit optimism sparked a rally in the Euro Stoxx 50 to a new 1-1/2 year high Thursday, which was supportive for economic growth and energy demand prospects, after the UK and European Union agreed on a new deal for Brexit. However, European stocks fell back and closed lower Thursday on doubts about passage o... Read more
Natural Gas Closes Higher on Cold Temps and Below-Average EIA Build

Nov Nymex natural gas (NGX19) on Thursday closed up +0.15 (+0.65%). Nov nat-gas prices on Thursday moved up towards Wednesday's 1-1/2 week high on expectations for cold weather in the U.S. to boost heating demand for nat-gas. Maxar on Thursday said it expects temperatures will be below normal across the central U.S. during Oct 22-26 before the cold temps move east from Oct 27-31. Nat-gas prices maintained their gains Thursday after the EIA reported that weekly nat-gas inventories rose 104 bcf last week, below expectations of a 108 bcf increase. High U.S. nat-gas production continues to be a bearish factor with lower-48 nat-gas production Thursday up +8.2% y/y at 93.565 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 +14.5% y/y from -22.3% y/y in March. Money managers have record high net short positions for this time of year in seven gas contracts in data going back to 2014, which provides some fuel for a po... Read more
