Trade The Crude Oil Inventories in Live Trading Room

Join us this morning and watch us trade live the Crude Oil Inventories and Natural Gas Storage report. Click here to gain access.

The Crude Oil Inventories report is released weekly, four days after the week ends. The data reports the number of barrels of crude oil commercial firms have in inventory. Commercial firms report their inventory levels to the Energy Information Administration, but the EIA must still make some estimates to arrive at the final number. It influences the price of petroleum products which affects inflation, but also impacts growth as many industries rely on oil to produce goods.

Active traders, especially those utilizing sophisticated computers such as quantitative and algorithmic trading models love this report because of the volatility in price action it can spark. The futures market is one of the most favored by active traders because of the liquidity and leverage the exchange market offers. Crude Oil began futures trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange (NYMEX) in 1983 and is the most heavily traded commodity.

Stock traders also engage by trading exchange-traded funds (ETF) including United States Oil Fund, LP : USO, PowerShares DB Oil Fund : DBO and oil related stock companies such as Exxon Mobil Corporation: XOM, Chevron Corporation : CVX, PetroChina Company Limited : PTR and BP Plc : BP.
