Week in Review – January 24, 2020

The crude market was down for the week.  The major news driving markets this week is the Coronavirus coming from China.  The sickness has stoked the fear that people will travel less or stop travelling all together.  According to Goldman Sachs, oil markets are likely to take a hit from China’s deadly coronavirus, with aviation fuel suffering the most.  The virus that originated in Wuhan could result in global oil demand falling by up to 260 kbpd in 2020, with jet fuel accounting for around two-thirds of the loss.  The crude market is down in early trading today.
