Oil and fuel oil hedging market update

19 Jun 2017 07:36 GMT

By the Oil Desk at Freight Investor Services.



By the Oil Desk at Freight Investor Services Ltd.

Brent closed Friday up $0.45 to $47.37 and WTI closed at $44.74 up $0.28. So another week is upon us and as the UK braces for the mercury to maintain 28 deg + (How will they cope!!), the oil market is cooling down. I'm sure everyone will want to know if we have hit the bottom for prices. Well, that remains to be seen. I do, however, think we may have found a floor around these levels. I mean, how much more bad news can crude take? And it is proving resilient around these levels, whether technical support is keeping a lid on things then again, we will have to wait and see. As expected, the US rig count continues to increase and whilst this is of no surprise, surely that number cannot continue to increase the further crude flat price drops. Of course there will be a time lag if this is the case, but if crude stays around these levels, I think we could see the rig rise slow down. Will this be the catalyst for a rally?
