Crude Oil WTI Futures Market News and Commentary

Crude Oil Extends This Week's Rally on Dollar Weakness and Smaller Global Supplies

Apr WTI crude oil (CLJ19) on Wednesday closed up +$0.71 (+1.26%) per barrel and Apr Brent crude (CBJ19) closed up +$0.63 (+0.95%). Apr RBOB gasoline (RBJ19) closed up +2.85 cents per gallon (+1.64%). The energy complex recovered from early losses Wednesday and rallied to 3-month highs after the dollar index tumbled to a 2-week low. In addition, the energy complex still has carry-over support on signs of lower global crude supplies after tanker intelligence firm Kpler reported on Tuesday that Saudi Arabian crude exports fell sharply by -1.3 million bpd in the first half of Feb compared with the same period last month. Crude oil prices on Wednesday were undercut by the consensus that Thursday's weekly EIA crude oil inventories will rise by +3.0 million bbl, the fifth consecutive weekly increase, although gasoline inventories are expected to fall -500,000 bbl. Another negative is weaker compliance with crude output cuts as Jan OPEC+ compliance with crude production cuts was only 83%. In addition, the EIA on Tuesday raised its U.S. Feb shale oil production forecast by +1.6% to 8.31 million bpd from a prior estimate of 8.18 million bpd and raised its U.S. March shale oil production estimate by 84,000 bpd (+1.0%) to 8.4 million bpd. The API reported Wednesday afternoon that U.S. crude stockpiles rose +1.26 million bbl last week.
