PVM Midday Report 14 July 2016

Published Thursday, July 14th, 2016


  1. BoE keeps interest rates on hold at historic low of 0.5%, hints at stimulus in August
  2. Singapore fuel oil stocks hit three-week high of 27.545 million bbls
  3. BoJ officials quash hopes of looming helicopter money stimulus
  4. Latest survey of British consumer confidence plunges to lowest level since 2014


Fundamentals: Oil prices are recovering some ground following yesterday’s US-stats-induced selloff as the complex takes its cues from solid gains across global stock markets and a marginally softer dollar. Elsewhere, oil stocks in Asia continue to point to a significant oversupply as evidenced by middle distillates and fuel oil inventories in Singapore rising by 63,000 bbls and 638,000 bbls respectively to fresh multi- week highs.

Technicals: The contracts are attempting a recovery but are still in most cases hemmed in by the 5 and 8 day MAs. These are key pivotal resistances and only closes above the highest of them will greenlight a slingshot leg higher. They are 45.82 WTI; 47.28 Brent; 142.69 Heat; 140.04 RBOB and 417.75 Gasoil. Watch the s/t MAs, they will they will flag the next leg. Keep exposure limited until the next leg is clear.
