Commentary

Brent closed down 0.20 last night to $62.59, WTI closed at $59.29, up 0.09. In oil you have the emergence of the U.S. which is now included in every single oil commentary, having become a factor the market cannot ignore any longer. The established OPEC order is changing as the old heads we have known so long are getting superseded. Another Monday and another statement from OPEC that they see demand increasing this year. I can only assume that guy I told you about who trades flat price in his undies from home fell asleep with his finger on the LIFT button at this mundane statement.

Fuel Oil Market (February 12)

The front crack opened at -10.20, strengthening to -9.60, before weakening to -9.65. The Cal 19 was valued at -14.50.

Asia's fuel oil market held steady on Monday amid limited trade activity in the physical and paper markets
