WTI Crude Oil Violates Support - Global Economic Worries Dominate

WTI Crude Oil Violates Support - Global Economic Worries Dominate

"Despite several forays in WTI above our prior resistance of $55, the market continues to draft back down largely under the pressure of this week's stronger dollar", Jim Ritterbusch, president of Ritterbusch and Associates, said in a note.

At 20:00 GMT, March WTI crude oil futures are trading $53.69, down $0.87 or -1.61% and April Brent crude oil futures are at $62.00, down $0.51 or -0.83%.

Oil fell 1 percent on Wednesday after a report showed a rise in USA crude inventories, while concerns about the impact of us sanctions on Venezuela on global supplies eased.

However, US crude stocks rose last week even as refineries boosted output, while gasoline and distillate stocks increased, data from industry group the American Petroleum Institute showed on Tuesday. They closed down 1.3 percent on Monday, after earlier touching their highest since November 21 at $55.75 a barrel.

A report published by the US Energy Information Administration (EIA) last week showed that the country's oil production averaged a record 11.9 million barrels a day in November, up 345,000 from October and up almost 1.8 million compared with November 2017's average figures.

Russia has been in full compliance with its pledge to gradually cut its oil production, Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak said in a statement on Monday, adding that production fell by 47,000 barrels per day (bpd) in January from October.

Downing Street said it was a question for Mr Tusk "whether he considers the use of that kind of language helpful". It didn't take long for British and Northern Irish politicians to react to his comments.

United States sanctions on Venezuela have been viewed as supportive for prices by helping tighten global supplies. The surge comes shortly after Washington slapped sanctions on the Venezuelan state oil company PDVSA.

The producers' alliance, known as OPEC+, began cutting production from last month to avert a new supply glut. US crude was down 48 cents at $53.18.

Also dampening market sentiment still were worries about weaker global economic growth and the US-China trade dispute.

Meanwhile, hopes for thawing China-US relations have also helped ease concerns over slowing economic growth.
