Oil Prices Extend Bullish Sequence as U.S. Crude Output Narrows

Fundamental Forecast for Crude Oil: Bullish

Crude oil prices may stage a larger recovery over the days ahead as data coming out of the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) highlights the risk for a more meaningful shift in supply.

The EIA’s monthly update showed U.S. production narrowed to 9.08M b/d from 9.1M b/din March, with the slowdown led by a 5.8% contraction in the Gulf of Mexico. The recent downtick in U.S. output may keep oil afloat in July, but a broader look at the data set instills a long-term bearish outlook for energy prices especially as the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) remains unwilling to implement deeper production cuts.

After bottoming out in 2008, crude oil outputs have increased at an exponential rate, with U.S. production moving back towards the fastest pace of growth since 1970. If the resurgence in shale persists, energy prices stand at risk of trending lower in the second-half of the year as the slowdown from 2015 largely dissipates.

Keep in mind the broad outlook in weighed to the downside as USOIL preserves the downward trending channel from earlier this year, with the RSI reflecting a similar dynamic.
