Crude descends $0.59

Posted on: November 07, 2016

Last Friday finished the week off on a pessimistic note where Crude WTI Prompt contracts continued their losing streak with a $0.59 loss and final close of $44.07. The influence of OPEC hearsay statements was all too evident when Saudi Arabia had allegedly threatened to increase production if a cut could not be agreed upon, shortly afterwards the comment was confirmed as false by Mohammed Barkindo, OPEC Secretary-General; however, the statement was enough to take crude on a ride to $43.50 lows until bouncing back slightly after the General’s response.

Baker Hughes published their US rig counts with a further increase of 9 rigs to 450 total. As America returns to work we will likely experience violent swings in commodity pricing with election day upon us.
