Week in Review – September 6, 2019

The Crude Market was up during this short trading week.  The market took a downward turn on Tuesday following US-China tariff implementation and Hurricane Dorian cutting into demand.  Markets moved higher later in the day on positive news about Brexit and economic data from China.

Reports from the API were delayed due to the short week.  The news was bearish, showing a small build in crude when the expectation was a modest draw, but traders were bullish and waited on the EIA’s report which proved the bulls right.  The EIA reported a larger than expected crude draw on Thursday, yet markets still chose to move lower. The market is down in early trading on Friday. So far, no long-term infrastructure issues have been reported following Dorians near-miss with Florida and Georgia, though the storm will continue hitting North Carolina today.
