Crude Oil WTI Futures Market News and Commentary


Jan WTI crude oil (CLF19) this morning is up by +$0.75 per barrel (+1.47%) and Feb Brent crude (CBG19) is up +$0.54 (+0.90%). Jan RBOB gasoline (RBF19) is up by +1.12 cents per gallon (+0.79%). Crude prices are higher this morning due to a weaker dollar and the action by Libya to declare force majeure at its Sharara oil field after 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 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 has 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.
