Welcome to futures io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.


You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Leading up to the Doha talks oil goes up
Doha talks fall through, no agreement is reached to cutback output, oil goes up
Kuwait oil workers stop strike , increasing oil supply, oil goes up
Oil Inventory numbers come out today, inventory is up, oil goes up


i think i'm pretty close to identifying a pattern here....

hi Aufidius - today the headline was 2080K vs. Exp. 2750K. Distillate also seemed to be much lower than the expected.

When is the last time you saw a move like this on a smaller than expected inventory increase?

My point is that we seems to have a bias to the upside. almost all news is being taken as positive for oil at this point. I'm curious to see what happens if someone actually cuts production, although i doubt it will happen.

Understood about your point. I was merely trying to understand why you said 'inventories are up' and whether I was missing something.

Will this have any bearing on price of oil ?


Quoting 
Total machine sales were down 13% worldwide, and 14% lower in the Asia/Pacific segment that includes China.

Sales in the resources industries segment, primarily responsible for equipment used in mining and quarries, were down 25% globally.

And in construction industries, sales were down 9%. But there was a 7% increase in the Asia/Pacific region, which was the only stat that was up on a 3-month basis.

Quoting 
The world’s largest energy companies are sidelining big ideas that they touted just a couple of years ago as the future of the industry.

From Australia to the U.S. Gulf Coast, the casualties include ultra-deep-water drilling projects, huge boats that serve as floating liquefied natural gas factories and technology that could drastically reduce emissions from burning fossil fuels. Royal Dutch Shell PLC, Chevron Corp. and Australia’s Woodside Petroleum Ltd. are among the big companies to pull back or delay ambitious projects.

Shell hammered home the message on Wednesday after reporting first-quarter profits that were down 83% from the same period a year before. The Anglo-Dutch oil giant said it would cut its capital spending budget another 10%, to $30 billion this year.

“To be brutally honest, any large new greenfield investment whether floating LNG, deepwater or elsewhere is under very strict critical review for cost levels and return simply because of where the industry is,” Shell Chief Financial Officer Simon Henry said in a conference call.

As of March, the oil industry has deferred or canceled $270 billion in projects since crude prices began crashing nearly two years ago, according to estimates from Norway-based consultancy Rystad Energy. The bulk of those spending cuts have involved high-tech projects once seen as crucial to sustaining global energy supplies.
