Crude Oil Settles at a 3-1/2 Month Low as the China Coronavirus Spreads

Mar WTI crude oil (CLH20) on Monday closed down -1.05 (-1.94%), Mar Brent crude oil (CBH20) closed down -1.37 (-2.30%), and Mar RBOB gasoline (RBH20) closed down -0.0152 (-1.10%).

Another bearish factor for nat-gas prices was the March/April 2020 futures spread that fell to a record low last Tuesday of -0.045, the most negative that spread has been since it started trading in 2016.
