The Energy Information Administration reported yesterday that the US crude inventories rose to 534.8 million barrels in the week to March 25, which represents the seventh week of gains. U.S. crude inventories currently stand at their highest levels in more than 80 years.


“Oil prices will trend down again … $35 a barrel will be the support level. Low prices are not sustainable in the long-run. Anytime prices get close to $45-$50 a barrel, funds that have taken long positions are likely to take profits. Unless things really ignite the global economy, then people will sell-off at that level,” said Tony Nunan from Mitsubishi Corp.
