Week in Review – October 18, 2019

The Crude Market was down for the week, however, we are seeing some gains in morning trading on Friday.  The week started with the hopes of a partial trade deal between the U.S. and China being delayed which brought prices lower.  The markets remained flat through the week as they waited on inventory numbers that were delayed by a day due to the Monday Columbus Day holiday.

The EIA report on Thursday confirmed a large crude build reported by the API which was offset by draws in products.  Also, on Thursday, bullish news of a possible Brexit deal drove the dollar down which helped to support oil prices.  Markets are continuing gains from Thursday in early trading on Friday.
