Crude Oil Prices May Extend Gains on Inventories Drawdown

Crude Oil Prices May Extend Gains on Inventories Drawdown

Talking Points:

  • Crude oil prices soars as API data amplifies OPEC news-flow
  • Gold prices left range-bound despite hawkish Yellen comments
  • EIA oil inventories data, year-end flows in the spotlight ahead

Crude oil posted the largest daily increase in three weeks after API inventory data amplified supportive OPEC news-flow. The report pointed to a drawdown of 4.15 million barrels last week. The official EIA report set to cross the wires in the coming hours is expected to show a more modest 2.43 million barrel drawdown. An upside surprise echoing the API assessment may offer prices a further upside nudge.

Meanwhile,a modest pullback courtesy of Fed Chair Yellen failed to gain enough momentum to pull gold prices out of a narrow consolidation range staked out after prices hit a ten-month low last week. A lull in headline event risk and thinning pre-holiday liquidity conditions may open the door for a correction of "Trump trade" moves, hinting at the possibility of a bounce driven by profit-taking.
