TFA Energy Morning Highlights – 6/07/2023
Crude oil futures in European trading hours Wednesday were little changed with prices hovering at levels prior to the weekend’s OPEC+ meeting, as sluggish economic growth continues to offset supply-side concerns.
“Crude prices are heavy as global growth concerns continue to suggest a much weaker crude demand outlook. China is scrambling to deliver a ‘basket of support measures’ and Germany factory orders were unable to rebound. It seems the Saudi-led OPEC+ production cut only deterred short-sellers for a couple of days,” said Ed Moya, senior market analyst at brokerage Oanda.
The World Bank warned Tuesday that higher rates interest and overhangs from this year’s banking crisis will significantly slow economic growth for the biggest global economies.
Traders had already raised concerns over the sluggish pace of growth in the US and a possible further rate rise over summer, while household consumption in the Eurozone area remained subdued in April, with the volume of retail sales unchanged from March levels.
German factory orders also fell a further 0.4% month-on-month in April, significantly below expectations for a 2.8% rise, driven by a decline in large-scale orders.
