Oil Inventories

Refinery Inputs Near Seasonal Low…Oil Inventories Grow…For Now

“Davidson” submits:

Q3 hedge fund letters, conference, scoops etc

A lot of forecasts for recession are coupled to the fall in ‘oil prices’ which some investors tie to a slowing economy with the same simple interpretation of “Dr. Copper”. The US refinery industry has had an unusually long fall maintenance period which makes Refinery Inputs low for a longer period and results a period of higher US Crude Inv build. It is this build which now sits above the 5yr mov avg which has caused a fair amount of negative forecasting. The short and simple is that the perceived excess supply/weakening economy and economic/market peak based on this short-term spike in US inventories is very likely to disappear in short order. I would be very careful of trying to bet on further oil price weakness or a falling stock market.

Economic data up-trending currently is going to shock any investor who has taken a pessimistic view of markets in my opinion.
