Solid Gold Berjangka ~ Minyak Mentah Berada Dibawah $ 53 per barel

minyak8Solid Gold Berjangka ~ Minyak berada di bawah level $ 53 per barel karena data industri AS menunjukkan stok minyak mentah diperluas, mengimbangi pengurangan dari produsen OPEC termasuk Irak.

Kontrak sedikit berubah di New York setelah jatuh 1,7 persen pada Januari, penurunan bulanan pertama sejak Oktober. Persediaan minyak mentah AS meningkat 5,83 juta barel pekan lalu, menurut laporan American Petroleum Institute, Selasa. Data pemerintah hari Rabu juga diperkirakan akan menunjukkan stok diperluas. Irak, produsen terbesar kedua OPEC, mengurangi outputnya dengan 180.000 barel per hari mulai Januari, kata Falah al-Amri, direktur umum dari negara perusahaan pemasaran minyak.

Harga minyak menguat hampir 15 persen dalam dua bulan terakhir tahun 2016 seiring Organisasi Negara Pengekspor Minyak menyepakati perjanjian pada 30 November lalu untuk mengurangi pasokan, dengan 11 negara lain termasuk Rusia bergabung dengan kesepakatan kurang dari dua minggu kemudian. Sementara produsen minyak di Timur Tengah melaksanakan pemangkasan, pengebor AS menargetkan minyak mentah telah meningkatkan jumlah rig bangsa ke level tertingginya sejak November 2015.

Minyak mentah West Texas Intermediate (WTI) untuk pengiriman Maret turun 3 sen ke level $ 52,78 per barel di New York Mercantile Exchange pada pukul 11:06 pagi waktu Sydney. Kontrak hari Selasa naik 18 sen atau 0,3 persen, ke level $ 52,81 per barel. Total volume perdagangan sekitar 80 persen di bawah 100-hari rata-rata.

Brent untuk pengiriman Maret menguat 47 sen atau 0,9 persen, ke level $ 55,70 per barel di ICE Futures Europe exchange yang berbasis di London sebelum berakhir Selasa. Minyak mentah acuan global ditutup dengan premi $ 2,89 untuk WTI. Semakin aktif kontrak untuk bulan April ditutup 26 sen lebih tinggi pada level $ 55,58 per barel. (Solid Gold Berjangka)

Oil held below $53 a barrel as U.S. industry data showed crude stockpiles expanded, offsetting cuts from OPEC producers including Iraq.

Futures were little changed in New York after falling 1.7 percent in January, the first monthly decline since October. U.S. crude inventories increased by 5.83 million barrels last week, the American Petroleum Institute was said to report Tuesday. Government data Wednesday is also forecast to show stockpiles expanded. Iraq, OPEC�s second-largest producer, reduced output by 180,000 barrels a day in January, according to Falah al-Amri, director general of the state oil marketing company.

Oil advanced almost 15 percent the last two months of 2016 as the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries agreed on Nov. 30 to reduce supply, with 11 other nations including Russia joining the deal less than two weeks later. While Middle East producers implement the cuts, U.S. drillers targeting crude have increased the nation�s rig count to the highest level since November 2015.

West Texas Intermediate for March delivery fell 3 cents to $52.78 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange at 11:06 a.m. in Sydney. The contract Tuesday gained 18 cents, or 0.3 percent, to $52.81 a barrel. Total volume traded was about 80 percent below the 100-day average.

Brent for March settlement climbed 47 cents, or 0.9 percent, to $55.70 a barrel on the London-based ICE Futures Europe exchange before expiring Tuesday. The global benchmark crude closed at a $2.89 premium to WTI. The more-active April contract closed 26 cents higher at $55.58 a barrel.
