Angolan crude oil exports are projected to stand at 1.46 mbpd in January and represents a hefty decline from the 1.8 mbpd planned in December. Staying with Angola, its budget projections for next year have indicated that it crude oil production will average 1.89 mbpd in 2016 which is slightly up from current levels. Meanwhile, Russia has signalled that it plans to increase supplies of oil-related products to Europe as it seeks to undermine rivals hoping to capture some of its market share.

Technicals: The relentless slump has been put on hold as the contracts experience a corrective rally with Brent, WTI and Gasoil following the lead set by RBOB and Heat which have climbed over important upside pivots at 124.84 and 137.45 respectively. Targets lower will be negated if these levels are below tonight’s close while rallies to the 8-day MAs are sales. These are 42.15 WTI; 45.60 Brent; 141.83 Heat; 128.93 RBOB and 433.50 Gasoil. It is not advised to be long.
