Oil prices fell down more than 1.5%, raising fears for slow demand

Do we have to fear for slow demand now that oil prices fell more than 1.5 percent?! U.S. West Texas Intermediate crude CLc1 settled down 97 cents or 1.96 percent to $48.59 a barrel. Brent crude futures LCOc1 were down 80 cents or 1.52 percent to $51.90 a barrel.

 

 

U.S. stock indexes fell sharply on Thursday, with the Dow and the Nasdaq posting triple-digit point declines, as investors fretted over escalating tensions between the U.S. and North Korea. The falling U.S. stock market translated to weakness in the oil market, that raised concerns about demand. The demand picture gets murky as stocks go down. Gold has stayed up so that confirms my suspicions it’s a fear trade.

 

 

On the supply side, Russian oil producer Gazprom Neft considers it "economically feasible" to resume production in mature fields after a global agreement among OPEC and non-OPEC countries expires, a representative of the company said. And while the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries raised its outlook for oil demand in 2018 and cut its forecasts for output from rivals next year, yet another increase in the group's production suggested the market will remain in surplus despite efforts to limit supply.

  • General Motors to lay off 1,100 workers
    06 Mar 2017

    General Motors promised us other things but that’s how it all turned to be, even if it said it will invest $1 billion in U.S. factories now it announced to temporarily cut off 1,100 workers in May as its Lansing Delta Township assembly plant in Michigan shifts production to Tennessee. Last year it added 800 jobs at its spring hill, Tennessee plant to build the new version of GMC Acadia SUV.  The Lansing plant will continue building the Buick Enclave and Chevrolet Traverse after it retools for a month. GM also has announced other U.S. factory cuts. U.S. President Donald Trump ha...

  • Ford to pay $10.1 million to settle the sexual harassment scandal
    17 Aug 2017

    Workers from two Chicago plants have sued Ford Motor Co. for sexual and racial harassment. After an investigation made by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission the company agreed to pay $10.1 million to settle the scandal. The investigation yielded reasonable cause that personnel at the Chicago Assembly Plant and the Chicago Stamping Plant had subjected African-American and female employees to racial and sexual harassment -- violating Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The agency also said the company retaliated against employees who complained about harassment or discr...

  • The creator of the first modern SUV: Ford GT40, dies at 92 years old
    16 Aug 2017

    American Motors couldn’t offer enough money to subject the original Jeep Cherokee, the first modern SUV - to a traditional durability testing program ahead of its late 1983 launch, but its chief engineer Roy Lunn, who died in 2017, Aug 5th, at 92 years, steered around the obstacle by securing credentials for the punishing Paris-Dakar Rally. Lunn's engineering team prepared two Cherokees for the event, not to compete but simply to run the brutal desert course and monitor how the Cherokee's "uni-frame" body would take the constant pounding over the bruising, potholed 6,20...
