Fundamentals: China has moved to reflect the recovery in oil prices after announcing its second consecutive price rise to retail fuel prices. Similarly, as Brent looks set to record its first monthly gain since July 2014, Oman will raise its April crude OSP by $9.48 to $56.21/bbl according to Reuters calculations. The belief that oil prices have bottomed out and are on the road to recovery was reflected by the latest Reuters poll which raised its 2015 average crude prices for the first time since August last year to $59/bbl Brent and $54.50 WTI. Meanwhile, increasing storage plays and rapidly dwindling capacity at Cushing is expected to boost stockpiles on the US Gulf Coast in the coming weeks.
