Week in Review – July 22, 2022

This week saw a general downward trend, with a variety of bearish headlines keeping markets suppressed. The economy remains the focal point, with Europe, particularly under scrutiny.

Citi: Recession Could Cause Oil to Fall 40%

After a long trading holiday for US markets over the July 4 weekend, prices are trading sharply lower as traders continue pricing in the risk of an economic recession.

Week in Review – July 31, 2020

WTI Crude finished the week lower as the coronavirus pandemic continues to weigh on the economy.  A recent surge in cases across the country caused a rollback of reopening plans and rekindled fears of demand concerns in the crude market. In inventory news, a large surprise draw of 10.6 MMbbls reported by the EIA barely […]

IMO 2020 Hits, Diesel Prices Steady

For all the talk about IMO 2020, markets seem to be adapting quite well to the massive change which affects roughly 4% of the world’s oil demand. The regulation officially went into effect yesterday, requiring that all marine vessels switch from using 3.5% sulfur fuel to 0.5% sulfur fuel. While marine fuel prices have seen […]
