Crude Oil Prices Down as OPEC Struggles to Offset US Supply Gain

Crude Oil Prices Down as OPEC Struggles to Offset US Supply Gain

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

Talking Points:

Crude oil prices fell amid reports that compliance with the OPEC-led production cut accord fell to 92 percent in June from 110 percent in the prior month. That was compounded by the EIA saying US shale output will hit 5.58 barrels per day in August, an all-time high, as well as news ofan increase in output from Libya.

The spotlight now turns to weekly API inventory flow statistics. Official EIA data are expected to show a 4.2 million barrel outflow on Wednesday. The API print will be judged against that forecast, with a larger drawdown likely to boost prices while a smaller one may hurt them.

Gold prices rose for a second day as cooling Fed rate hike bets bolstered the appeal of non-interest-bearing and anti-fiat assets. More of the same may be ahead as another US healthcare reform effort ends in failure, triggering broad-based unwinding of the so-called “Trump trade”.
