Week in Review – November 15, 2019
The Crude Market was down for the week. The market was up and down to start the week as it tried to figure out what to make of pessimistic trade news and OPEC’s jawboning to start the week. Traders seemed to latch onto bullish inventory news reported by the API late Wednesday of a surprise small draw.
API estimates did not come to fruition as the EIA reported a larger-than-expected build in crude stock. However, the market did realize the first draw at Cushing in seven weeks. This mixed news seems to be driving markets sideways this morning.
