SOTU, Stats and the Fed

By: Matt Rosenberg / Posted on: January 30, 2018

After opening the week yesterday with all three indices finishing down, the trend is continuing this morning as the board is lit red again for crude, RBOB and HO.  Yesterday, crude finished down $0.0058 to close at $65.56 while RBOB and HO settled down by $0.0028 and $0.0312 to close at $1.9349 and $2.1048 respectively.  Multiple factors contributed to yesterday’s decline including the strength of the U.S. dollar and most importantly, supply.  Reports of rising U.S. production, increased rig counts and inventory expectations are all weighing heavily on the oil market.  Later this afternoon, the American Petroleum Institute will publish their weekly stats followed by the Energy Information Administration’s all important report tomorrow morning.
