Crude Oil Prices May Break Deadlock on Inventory Data

Crude Oil Prices May Break Deadlock on Inventory Data

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

Talking Points:

  • Crude oil prices stall as traders await OPEC deal implementation
  • Weekly API oil inventories data may revive directional momentum
  • Gold prices look to ISM survey data to drive Fed path speculation

Crude oil prices remain rudderless below the $55/barrel figure as markets await news on the implementation of OPEC’s supply cut scheme. In the meantime, the private-sector estimate of weekly inventory flows from API may generate a bit of volatility.

Gold prices have stalled after rebounding to a two-week high in the final days of 2016. The spotlight now turns to December’s US ISM manufacturing survey, which may reboot speculation about the on-coming direction of Federal Reserve monetary policy.

The report is expected to show that factory sector activity grew at the fastest pace in 23 months. An upside surprise may mean little after markets spent much of the past two months pricing in a steeper Fed rate hike path. A disappointing outcome may have more market-moving potential, sending the metal upward.
