Crude Oil Prices Ignore Inventory Data as US Exports Hit Record

Crude Oil Prices Ignore Inventory Data as US Exports Hit Record

2017-06-02 09:00:00
Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

Talking Points:

  • Crude oil shrugged off well-telegraphed drop in US inventories
  • WTI fell for 3rd straight day as US oil exports rose to record high
  • Gold prices may fall if US jobs numbers stoke Fed rate hike bets

A larger-than-expected drop in US inventories failed to make an impression on crude oil prices, as expected. Stockpiles shed 6.43 million barrels, a draw well in excess of the 3 million barrel outflow predicted by analysts. The outcome was well-telegraphed by previously released API data however, robbing the official EIA release of its market-moving potential.

Rather, the markets focused on rising production in Libya and Nigeria – OPEC countries that are nonetheless exempt from its output cut scheme – as well as the US. Bloomberg reported that the cartel’s collective output jumped by 315k b/d last month while DOE figures showed US exports jumped to 1.3 million b/d last week, the highest on record. Baker Hughes rig count data is next on tap.

Gold prices edged lower as upbeat US economic data offered a lift to the US Dollar, undermining the appeal of anti-fiat alternatives. ADP reported a forceful recovery in jobs growth and an ISM survey showed manufacturing-sector activity unexpectedly accelerated last month. The spotlight now turns to the official set of US employment figures, with an upbeat result poised to hurt the yellow metal further.
