Nov WTI crude oil (CLX19) on Friday closed down by -0.15 (-0.28%), Dec Brent crude oil (CBZ19) closed down by -0.49 (-0.82%), and Nov RBOB gasoline (RBX19) closed up by +0.0005 (+0.03%). The energy complex settled mixed Friday as a slump in the dollar index to a 1-3/4 month low was offset by weakness in China's economy that raises energy demand concerns.

Nov nat-gas rallied to a 2-week high Wednesday 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. High U.S. nat-gas production continues to be a bearish factor with lower-48 nat-gas production Friday up +8.9% y/y at 93.901 bcf/d. Strong U.S. nat-gas output has caused U.S. nat-gas inventories to rise sharply in recent mont... Read more
