US Crude Oil Stocks

 

Data Source: EIA - US Energy Information Administration

The US crude stocks is a key factor in determining the market sentiment in the global energy sector; the US is the largest consumer of the commodity on the planet and as a result, its influence is fully understandable. The EIA, US Energy Information Administration, releases the data of the US crude stocks on weekly basis. The above data is by courtesy of the EIA.

Usually, a steep decline in the US crude stocks signals to the market that the consumption in the US is on the rise; it, more often than not, leads to the rise in the price of oil; there have been some recent exceptions, though. On the other hand, if the US crude stocks grow, the energy markets see it as consumer-apathy and the oil price tends to go down.

The above data includes that of the SPR, Strategeic Petroleum Reserve, the stocks that the US maintains for an emergency such as a war or a major geo-political event in the Middle East. where voltatility can affect the oil markets directly.

Oil Price - factors to lookout for...

The EIA - the US Energy Information Administration - has identified 7 key factors that collectively play the major role in determining the price of oil. They are as follows:

 

  • Supply by the OPEC members
  • Supply by non-OPEC members
  • Demand by OECD countries
  • Demand by non-OECD countries
  • Stocks / Inventory Counts
  • Spot prices
  • Financial markets

 

Since geo-political events affect all the above factors, it's not listed as a factor on its own.

In this context, the above charts are important to understand the fluctuations in the global oil market.

 

China's Manufacturing PMI

China, the world's second largest economy next to the US, is the world's second largest consumer of oil. In addition, China is the world's largest importer of crude oil. Therefore, its manufacturing activity is a crucial factor, when it comes to global consumption of oil; the greater the manufacturing activity, the greater demand for the commodity from China.
In this context, China's manufacturing activity, indicated by its monthly PMI, is a factor that both analysts and investors monitor just as they do with the data from the EIA, US Energy Information Administration.
