Week in Review – October 4, 2019

By Published On: October 4, 2019Categories: Crude, Daily Market News & Insights, Diesel, Gasoline

The Crude Market was down for the week.  The week opened with news of continued diplomacy in the Middle East and a strong dollar, both of which put downward pressure on the markets.  Poor manufacturing reports and general macroeconomic pessimism continued to drive markets lower through the week.  The downward trend in equities spilled over to create a looming fear of slowing oil demand.

A bearish inventory report by the EIA mid-week helped to extend the streak of crude price losses to eight days to close the week.  The reported 3.1 MMbbls build was larger than expected and counter to the API report of a 5.9 MMbbls draw.  The build showed that the market was well supplied even as Saudi production was less than optimal.  Now that Saudi production has been restored to pre-attack levels, the markets will likely feel downward pressure as they readjust supply capability.
