Futures Market Commentary


Jan WTI crude oil (CLF19) on Wednesday closed down by -$0.50 per barrel (-0.97%) and Feb Brent crude (CBG19) closed down -$0.05 (-0.08%). Jan RBOB gasoline (RBF19) closed down by -1.94 cents per gallon (-1.35%). Crude prices moved lower Wednesday after weekly EIA crude inventories fell -1.21 million bbl, a smaller decline than expectations of -3.5 million bbl, and after crude supplies at Cushing, the delivery point of WTI futures, rose +1.15 million bbl to an 11-month high. Crude prices fell further in afternoon trade on signs of unrest within OPEC after Iran's Oil Minister said "serious political disagreements" exist within OPEC. A weaker dollar on Wednesday limited losses in the energy complex.

Jan Nymex natural gas (NGF19) on Wednesday closed down sharply by -0.271 (-6.15%). Nat-gas prices tumbled to a 2-week low Wednesday as the outlook for above-normal temperatures in the U.S. prompted fund selling of nat-gas futures. NOAA is forecasting warmer-than-normal temperatures across most of the U.S. from Dec 17-21 with the Midwest seeing extreme seasonal warmth Dec 16-20. On the positive side Wednesday was a weaker dollar and expectations for Thursday's weekly EIA nat-gas inventories to fall -88 bcf, more than the 5-year average for this time of year of -79 bcf. Also, U.S. nat-gas production has dropped off as Wednesday's data showed that U.S. natural gas production in the lower 48 states fell for a third day to 78.902 million cfd, a 4-3/4 month low. U.S. nat-gas inventories remain tight at 2.991 bcf as of Nov 30, -19.5% below the 5-year average and -19.1% y/y and the lowest seasonally since 2002.
