Natural gas is losing ground as traders react to the EIA report, which indicated that working gas in storage increased by 74 Bcf.

The report has mostly met analyst estimates, but it looks that bulls hoped that inventory build would miss estimates by a wide margin. As a result, traders continued to take profits off the table.


WTI Oil 130624 Daily Chart

WTI oil is swinging between gains and losses as traders stay focused on Fed policy outlook after yesterday’s Fed Interest Rate Decision. Treasury yields are moving lower, providing support for oil markets. At the same time, U.S. dollar’s rebound is bearish for WTI oil.

The technical picture remains unchanged as WTI oil needs to settle above the resistance at $79.00 – $80.00 to gain momentum.

Brent Oil

A move above the $83.00 level will open the way to the test of the resistance at $84.50 – $85.00.
