Energy Report - 1.6.17

The EIA report came out on Crude Oil on Thursday, January 5, 2017. Overall crude oil inventories decreased 7.051million barrels on expectations of a decrease of 2 million barrels while Cushing, Oklahoma inventories increased by a larger than expected 1.074 million barrels. Traders were looking for an increase of 200,000 barrels. Gasoline inventories rose by 8.307 million barrels; expectations were for an increase of 1million barrels. Distillates inventories increased by 10.051 million barrels; traders were looking for a decline of 800,000 barrels. The report sent Crude Oil to the low of the day at 52.79. Crude Oil then rebounded on reports that Saudi Arabia has cut its output by 486,000 barrels. If this is true their production would be at 10.051 million barrels, which puts them in compliance with their production cut obligation.  Crude tested support at the 21 DMA this week and it has contained the selling pressure.  If Crude Oil can trade above 53.85, it can test resistance at 54.51 and then 55.24. A breakdown below 53.35 could lead to another test of the 21 DMA (52.66), and then 51.47.
