Solid Gold ~ Minyak Mendekati $ 40 Setelah Melemah Ke Bear Market

Minyak diperdagangkan mendekati $ 40 per barel sebelum rilis data mingguan cadangan minyak oleh pemerintah AS dan setelah jatuh ke bear market terhadap kekhawatiran bahwa berlimpahnya pasokan global akan bertahan.

Minyak berjangka naik 0,4 persen di New York setelah jatuh di bawah $ 40 pada hari Senin untuk pertama kalinya sejak April. Sementara persediaan minyak mentah dan bensin diperkirakan akan menurun, dan akan tetap pada tingkat musiman tertinggi dalam setidaknya dua dekade terakhir. Nigeria telah melanjutkan kembali pembayaran kepada mantan militan karena pemerintah berusaha untuk mendirikan sebuah gencatan senjata setelah serangan yang memangkas produksi ke level terendah sejak 1989.

Minyak mentah West Texas Intermediate untuk pengiriman September berada di $ 40,21 per barel di New York Mercantile Exchange, naik 15 sen, pada pukul 10:22 pagi waktu Hong Kong. Kontrak WTI turun $ 1,54, atau 3,7 persen, ke $ 40,06 pada hari Senin, penutupan terendah sejak 18 April. Jumlah volume perdagangan sekitar 52 persen di bawah rata-rata 100-hari.

Minyak Brent untuk pengiriman Oktober bertambah 25 sen menjadi $ 42,39 per barel di ICE Futures Europe exchange yang berbasis di London. Kontrak Brent turun $ 1,39 menjadi $ 42,14 per barel pada hari Senin. Acuan global diperdagangkan untuk bulan Oktober lebih besar $ 1,37 dari WTI.(Solid Gold)

Oil traded near $40 a barrel before weekly U.S. government stockpile data and after falling into a bear market on concern the global supply glut will persist.

Futures added 0.4 percent in New York after dropping below $40 on Monday for the first time since April. While crude and gasoline inventories are forecast to have declined, they will remain at the highest seasonal level in at least two decades. Nigeria has resumed payments to former militants as the government seeks to establish a cease-fire after attacks cut output to the lowest since 1989.

Oil has tumbled more than 20 percent from its peak in June, meeting the common definition of a bear market and ending a recovery that saw prices almost double from a 12-year low in February. The supply overhang is upsetting industry expectations, with BP Plc, Royal Dutch Shell Plc and Exxon Mobil Corp. reporting second-quarter earnings last week that were worse than estimated.

West Texas Intermediate for September delivery was at $40.21 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange, up 15 cents, at 10:22 a.m. Hong Kong time. The contract slid $1.54, or 3.7 percent, to $40.06 on Monday, the lowest close since April 18. Total volume traded was about 52 percent below the 100-day average.

Brent for October settlement added 25 cents to $42.39 a barrel on the London-based ICE Futures Europe exchange. The contract dropped $1.39 to $42.14 a barrel on Monday. The global benchmark traded at a premium of $1.37 to WTI for October. (Solid Gold)
