Gasoline supplied was the most important figure in the release

Gasoline supplied was the most important figure in the release: Tyler Richey, co-editor of Sevens Report Research, Quoted in MarketWatch


Oil futures trade lower as U.S. crude supplies unexpectedly rise

Gasoline supplied was “the most important figure in the release as it is a key, high-frequency proxy for consumer gasoline demand and ultimately consumer sentiment and a gauge on general willingness to spend discretionary money,” said Tyler Richey, co-editor at Sevens Report Research. The EIA reported that gasoline supplied surged by 439,000 barrels per day to 9.315 million bpd last week, a fresh year-to-date high and the highest reading since early November of last year, he said.

There is certainly still a geopolitical fear bid in oil markets

There is certainly still a geopolitical fear bid in oil markets: Sevens Report Co-Editor, Tyler Richey, Quoted in Morningstar


Oil prices score weekly gain, breaking run of back-to-back weekly losses

“There is certainly still a geopolitical fear bid in oil markets here with [West Texas Intermediate crude] prices in the low $80s,” Tyler Richey, co-editor at Sevens Report Research, told MarketWatch. “Geopolitical worries have eased from their most tense levels seen earlier in April as the escalation in the Middle East between Israel and Iran has receded back to a still unsettling, but notably more stable level.”

Without the simmering geopolitical worries, WTI would likely be in the low-to-mid $70-a-barrel range, “at best,” as consumer demand for gasoline has been sliding in recent weeks, while OPEC+ has made no changes to output policy in some time, he said.

Hawkish central-bank policy is bad for the oil market

Hawkish central-bank policy is bad for the oil market: Tyler Richey, Sevens Report Co-Editor, Quoted in MarketWatch on MSN


Oil settles lower after rise in U.S. CPI and OPEC’s unchanged demand forecast

The initial market reaction to the consumer-price index release was a “hawkish one which saw oil prices decline to session lows,” Tyler Richey, co-editor at Sevens Report Research, told MarketWatch.

“Hawkish central-bank policy is bad for the oil market, because high interest rates over time act as a steady headwind on global growth and ultimately, that weighs on consumer-demand expectations,” he said.

The initial market reaction to the CPI release was a hawkish one

Oil prices decline to session lows: Sevens Report Co-Editor, Tyler Richey, Quoted in MarketWatch


Oil futures move up after CPI data, OPEC’s latest forecast for growth in oil demand

The initial market reaction to the CPI release was “a hawkish one, which saw oil prices decline to session lows,” said Tyler Richey, co-editor at Sevens Report Research. “Hawkish central bank policy is bad for the oil market because high interest rates over time act as a steady headwind on global growth and ultimately that weighs on consumer demand expectations.”

Looking at the reaction in the rates markets, “hawkish money flows were only modest, and investors are still pricing in a June rate cut from the Fed, just with a slight dip in confidence,” Richey said.

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.”

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.

Crude Oil Prices May Impact Inflation

Crude Oil Prices May Impact Inflation: Tom Essaye Quoted in Forbes


Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman Stocks Notch Best Days In Years Amid Israel-Hamas Conflict

Defense stocks surged while the broader market dipped Monday as Wall Street sifted through the market fallout of the conflict between Israel and Hamas, which escalated this weekend by the latter’s historic attack.

Sevens Report analyst Tom Essaye attributed this early slump to “rising geopolitical tensions,” pointing to how the related surge in crude oil prices may impact inflation and thus could keep monetary policy tighter.

The Fundamental Focus of the Oil Market Has Shifted: Oil Futures

Oil Futures Touch Fresh Highs: Sevens Report Analysts Quoted in Morningstar


Oil futures touch fresh highs for the year on bets for tighter global supplies

“The fundamental focus of the oil market has shifted from demand — more specifically concerns that a slowdown in global growth will hurt consumer spending on refined products — to the supply side as Russia and Saudi Arabia caught markets off guard with their output cut extension announcements,” analysts at Sevens Report Research wrote in Monday’s newsletter.

Factoring in the extended cuts, “many forecasts reflect deepening supply deficits in physical markets into the end of the year and that, paired with another wave of speculators getting scared out of the market by the latest OPEC+ surprise, has resulted in the latest leg higher to fresh 2023 highs in oil,” they said.

Looking ahead, the path of least resistance is higher for oil right now, with WTI “fast approaching our initial upside target of $89 [a] barrel,” the Sevens Report analysts said. “However, we remain in the camp that the onset of a recession will derail the rally.”
