• Crude oil prices fell yesterday due to global negative cues
WTI for the October contract went down by almost 4%, registering at $44.15/ barrel, whereas Brent on the other hand went down almost equal to WTI for the same month contract registering it at $47.58/ barrel

Outlook: Crude prices are yesterday gone down as the global scenario for both Brent crude & WTI crude is on down side. As per the Bloomberg’s survey, crude stockpiles are expected to move up for the second consecutive week. Already last week’s pileup was the biggest since multi- months; consecutive pile-up in the same may pull down prices further. With the end of the summer driving season, demand for the products side has got stalled in the US, lowering down the profitability of the refiners. Thus, refiners went down for the seasonal maintenance, due to which crude stockpiles are expected to rise this time also. Products side demand remaining stable could tend consuming from the existing inventories. Talking of the Brent, same negativity continues in it, though world is having an eye on OPEC’s Doha meeting. Not much positive outcome is expected from the same, as they had earlier signaled not reducing their current levels till Brent doesn’t goes down below $45/ barrel. Iran’s nuke deal is also expected to get cleared by March, 2016, as the IAEA extends their deadline by 3 months.Prices today are expected to remain on downside, as we can witness the early morning negativity in WTI, which is down by almost a percent. As per EIA’s STEO report, the average price of WTI is expected move down by 40 cents then what they fixed it earlier.
