Crude Oil WTI Futures Market News and Commentary


Jan WTI crude oil (CLF19) this morning is up by +$0.86 per barrel (+1.67%) and Feb Brent crude (CBG19) is up +$0.82 (+1.36%). Jan RBOB gasoline (RBF19) is up by +1.96 cents per gallon (+1.36%). Crude prices are higher this morning on signs of smaller supplies after Tuesday afternoon's API data showed U.S. crude stockpiles fell -10.2 million bbl last week. A weaker dollar is another positive for the energy complex this morning. OPEC compliance with crude production cuts was little changed last month as OPEC Nov compliance with crude production cuts fell to 111% from 113% in October, meaning OPEC cuts were 11% more than the targeted production cut. A rally in global equity markets on improved US/Chinese trade sentiment is another supportive factor for crude prices this morning. Today's weekly EIA crude inventory report is expected to show that U.S. crude oil inventories fell -3.5 million bbl.
