By: Ahura Chalki
Every Wednesday, eyes return to EIA weekly report. In the past three weeks, Oil inventories always raised up to break the highest ever record of 19.248M, in the 15, April weekly report, for the week ending on 10, April. For today, the expectation is a bit more than 15M, which means with lower production in the American petroleum companies, inventory levels also must be ease.
Market outlook for coming weeks still is about weaker demand while the main producer, still could not agree on any specific plan to avoid the current messed-up market, since there are plenty of barrels, which have nowhere to go.
Despite green boards in the Asian stock markets, as well as Futures, overnight correction form yesterday low of $6.40 to $14.10, in the early Asian season, could not take a long and bears toke the market control to lead it lower towards $10.72.
For now, still, there is no news or any specific announcement that can support the WTI market.
