Crude Oil WTI Futures Market News and Commentary


Jan WTI crude oil (CLF19) on Tuesday closed up by +$0.65 per barrel (+1.27%) and Feb Brent crude (CBG19) closed up +$0.60 (+1.00%). Jan RBOB gasoline (RBF19) closed up by +2.09 cents per gallon (+1.47). Crude prices moved higher Tuesday after Libya declared force majeure at its Sharara oil field when an armed group forced a production halt at the oil field that will cause a loss of -315,000 bpd of crude output. Another bullish factor is the outlook for smaller global crude production after Russian Energy Minister Novak said Russia will cut its oil production by 50,000 to 60,000 bpd starting in Jan. Finally, signs that China and the U.S are continuing trade talks eased global trade tensions and fueled a rally in global equity markets, which improves confidence in the economic outlook that may lead to improved energy demand. Crude prices fell back from their best levels Tuesday after the dollar index rose to a 4-week high.
