Tensions remain elevated between Israel and Hamas

Tensions remain elevated between Israel and Hamas: Sevens Report Analysts, Quoted in MarketWatch


Oil prices finish higher on talk of potential for Iran strike on Israel

“Bottom line, tensions remain elevated between Israel and Hamas and while ceasefire talks are as close as they have been yet, there remain risks of further escalation and a contagion effect in the region, particularly with Iran who recently threatened to close the Strait of Hormuz, which sees about 1/5th of the world’s seaborne oil trade flow through it,” said analysts in Sevens Report Research’s Wednesday newsletter.

Geopolitical factors remain the primary influence on the oil market

Geopolitical factors remain the primary influence on the oil market: Sevens Report Co-Editor, Tyler Richey, Quoted in Morningstar


Oil prices fall, but settle above lows, as traders monitor Middle East risks

Geopolitical factors remain the “primary influence on the oil market,” and news that Israel was withdrawing some troops from parts of Gaza was seen as a step toward de-escalation in its military conflict with Hamas, Tyler Richey, co-editor at Sevens Report Research, told MarketWatch.

However, reports on Monday indicated that there has been no progress toward a cease-fire agreement between the sides.

Also, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reportedly announced that a date has been set for an invasion of Rafah, which has been a “hotly contested issue in the ongoing talks between Israel and Hamas,” said Richey.

“The initial perception of improving geopolitical dynamics between Israel and Hamas initially weighed on oil prices [Monday], but renewed uncertainties about the potential for the military conflict to intensify” saw much of the early losses recovered before the close, Richey noted.

Data from the EIA was largely bullish

Data from the EIA was largely bullish: Sevens Report Co-Editor, Tyler Richey, Quoted in MarketWatch


Oil futures edge lower early Thursday

“Yesterday’s weekly inventory data from the EIA was largely bullish but the futures market had become overbought and there was a knee-jerk selloff in the immediate wake of the release as short-term traders booked profits on the latest breakout to new 2024 highs,” analysts at Sevens Report Research wrote in a note.

Expectations of a “higher-for longer” policy by the Federal Reserve

Expectations of a “higher-for longer” policy by the Federal Reserve: Tyler Richey Quoted in Morningstar


U.S. oil prices stretch gains into a sixth straight session

Expectations of a “higher-for longer” policy by the Federal Reserve are weighing on the demand outlook and have therefore acted as a headwind for U.S. benchmark oil prices recently, Tyler Richey, co-editor at Sevens Report Research, told MarketWatch.

However, Monday’s New York Fed Consumer Survey data showed a drop from 2.6% to 2.4% in the three-year inflation outlook, which was “received as dovish by the markets and helped support the domestic oil market to start the week,” Richey said.

On Tuesday, focus will shift to the U.S. CPI report, he said. A “hot” print would once again be a “headwind for oil prices, while a favorably ‘cool’ print could send WTI futures beyond $80” a barrel for the first time in 2024.

The Oil Market Has Seemed Skeptical

The Oil Market Has Seemed Skeptical: Tyler Richey Quoted in Morningstar


Oil prices finish higher as traders weighs risks tied to U.S. airstrikes

The oil market has “seemed skeptical of the potentially positive demand implications of the recent string of strong economic data,” though prices did move up in the wake of the better-than-expected ISM report, Tyler Richey, co-editor of Sevens Report Research, told MarketWatch.

As far as what to watch for this week, Richey said a rise in consumer demand for refined products metrics in the weekly Energy Information Administration report due out Wednesday would be a bullish development, while a return to record U.S. oil output would be “negative for prices in the near term.”

Gasoline And Distillate Fuel Supplied Fell Off A Cliff

Gasoline And Distillate Fuel Supplied Fell Off A Cliff: Tyler Richey Quoted in Morningstar


Oil futures settle lower after ‘massive’ weekly rise in U.S. oil-product inventories

Gasoline and distillate fuel supplied, which is typically viewed as an implied measure of consumer demand, “fell off a cliff.”Tyler Richey, Sevens Report Research

The roughly 20 million-barrel surge in refined product stockpiles was “largely the function of the massive drop off in deliveries around Christmas and New Year’s, which is notably typical in late December and early January,” he said.

West Texas Intermediate Crude Tested Critical 2023 Support

Oil Futures Finished Higher: Sevens Report Co-Editor, Tyler Richey, Quoted in MarketWatch


Oil futures end modestly higher after posting 7 consecutive weekly declines

Gains for the session came from a “combination of near-term oversold conditions in the futures market” after West Texas Intermediate crude tested critical 2023 support in the upper $60s last week, said Tyler Richey, co-editor at Sevens Report Research.

Oil futures finished higher on Monday after posting seven consecutive weekly declines.

Generally improving investor sentiment and risk-on money flows across other asset classes have also provided support to oil, he said.

The OPEC+ Decision Was A Clear Disappointment

The OPEC+ Decision Was A Clear Disappointment: Tyler Richey Quoted in Morningstar


Oil prices stretch loss to a 4th session in a row to settle at lowest since July

“The OPEC+ decision was a clear disappointment last week due to both the underwhelming amount of additional [oil] output curbs and the voluntary nature of the 2024 policy cuts,” said Tyler Richey, co-editor at Sevens Report Research.

“The market didn’t buy it, however, as the bears are pressing OPEC+ for more clarity on the long-term outlook for policy plans and reassurance that the group is willing to do ‘whatever it takes’ to keep oil near or above $80/barrel,” Richey told MarketWatch on Tuesday.

“Looking ahead, the price action in oil has become increasingly heavy, and if there is not some sort of positive or bullish market catalyst ahead, we are likely to see a test of the 2023 lows in the $67/barrel area” for WTI, analysts at Sevens Report Research wrote in a Tuesday note.

EIA Data Changes: Impact on Oil Inventories

EIA Data Changes: Impact on Oil Inventories: Tyler Richey Quoted in Morningstar


Why the U.S. government is changing the way it collects data on the oil market

It appears that previous data collection processes had “‘loopholes’. Which allowed certain condensates and ‘other oils’ to not be reported in inventories. But now will require them to report in total oil inventory figures,” he said.

Looking through the changes to the EIA’s data collection process, Tyler Richey, co-editor at Sevens Report Research, said it was “not very clear exactly how the data will be affected.”

The simplest takeaway is that the next effect of this change should result in oil inventories being higher than they previously were, said Richey.

The EIA in March explained the difference in its estimates of supply. As disposition had increased in its U.S. crude-oil balances it was studying the growing difference. It identified ways in which it has been “overstating disposition and understating supply.”

Tighter Financial Conditions

Tighter Financial Conditions: Tyler Richey Quoted in MarketWatch on MSN


Oil prices finish lower with concerns of an economic slowdown raising prospects for a supply surplus

The initial drop in oil upon the release of the Fed decision “seemed to be in reaction to the addition of the phrase ‘tighter financial conditions’ for households and businesses,” Tyler Richey, co-editor at Sevens Report Research told MarketWatch. The added wording “implies demand is likely to suffer in the near-to-medium term.”
“With longer-term demand expectations fading with the latest string of disappointing global economic reports we received this week, there is growing concern the physical markets will tip into a surplus in the months or quarter ahead,” said Richey.
