Commercial Traders Halt Crude Oil Slide

Commercial Traders Defend $80 per Barrel Support in Crude Oil Futures

Commitment of Traders Report Shows Commercials as Willing Buyers on Crude Oil Decline

The crude oil market has been digesting excess supply due to Iranian oil flowing east, rather than west and the Saudi’s crude oil production filling the westward supply gap. See Global Glut Going Nowhere.
The market finally gave way to fundamentals and fell after spending March and April above $100 per barrel. Like most markets, swings tend to go too far in either direction and that is what we’re seeing now.
Commercial traders have been active buyers below $90 per barrel and I expect this to continue. We will be buying August crude oil futures and placing a protective sell stop below the swing low of  $81.39.
