Gulf Coast, NYH Oil Products Rally behind Futures Advance
BURLINGTON, Vt. (DTN) -- Spot market oil product prices at the Texas Gulf
Coast and in New York Harbor are higher Thursday with cash market pricing
benchmarks March RBOB and ULSD futures on the New York Mercantile Exchange
posting a third session of advances.
Open market trading has been limited at the Gulf and the Harbor this morning.
Futures market bulls maintain control of oil products providing a fresh
boost in both ULSD and RBOB paper, while March crude oil is failing to keep an
upside pace with product prices.
Futures market speculators are convinced aggressive output cuts by the
Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries coupled with a resolution to
the U.S.-China trade war will boost global economies and underpin oil demand.
March WTI futures were off a fraction trading $53.88 bbl at press time,
reversing gears off a $54.68 bbl session high. The March RBOB contract was
2.54cts on positive ground at $1.4905 gallon, and spot month ULSD futures were
1.18cts higher printing $1.9508 gallon at last check.
