Oil Set for Biggest January Gain on Record on OPEC+ Cuts, Fed
Thursday, 31 January 2019 19:02 WIB | COMMODITY |MinyakWTIBrent

Oil is headed for its biggest January gain in at least 36 years as data showed the OPEC+ coalition™s output cuts starting to kick in, while a more dovish Federal Reserve boosted markets and improved the growth outlook.

While futures in New York were little changed in early trading Thursday, they were set to rise almost 20 percent in January, the biggest gain of any January in records going back to 1983. The Fed signaled Wednesday it™s done raising rates for the time being, pushing down the dollar. U.S. oil imports from Saudi Arabia fell to the lowest since October 2017 last week, while Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak said the country cut output gradually this month and will try to increase the pace of reductions in February.

The crude benchmark in New York has rebounded this year after plunging almost 40 percent in the last quarter of 2018. Those declines prompted the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries and its allies to embark on a mission to curb output. The crisis in Venezuela is threatening to limit supplies further if it worsens, while the question of whether the U.S. and China can resolve their trade differences remains pivotal for the demand outlook.

West Texas Intermediate crude for March delivery lost 9 cents to $54.14 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange at 10:51 a.m. in London. It gained 92 cents on Wednesday to close at $54.23 and is up $8.70 so far in January.

Brent for March settlement, which expires Thursday, was 28 cents higher at $61.93 a barrel on the London-based ICE Futures Europe exchange. Futures have increased 15 percent this month, on course for the biggest gain since April 2016. The more-active April contract advanced 23 cents to $61.77. The global benchmark crude was at a $7.76 premium to WTI.
