Following last night’s yuuge inventory build reported by API (+9.9m) and large rise in Cushing levels (+1.8m), DOE reported a crude build of even yuuger 10.37mm barrels (against the 7.1mm expectation) – the largest since early April 2015. Cushing saw a 1.2mm build – the most in 3 months. On the other side of the ledger, production fell for the 6th week in a row (-2.6% YoY to lowest since Nov 2014). Crude prices recovered from API’s losses as algos ran stops on the back of headlines about Saudi increases prices to Asia but DOE’s headline sent WTI back to its lows.
