Options Play: Unleaded Demand Outpacing Supply

 

RBOB Unleaded Gasoline, A Bi-Product of WTI Crude Oil Is Being Consumed At Faster Clip Than Last Year At This Time.

 

Fundamentally, consumers are using Unleaded Gasoline currently at a clip that is well ahead of last year at this time. In fact, before it's all said and done we could have an all-time record year in terms of demand for the bi-product of Crude Oil.  

Prices for WTI Crude Oil itself are low enough now that we are exporting our black gold out of the Gulf Of Mexico to countries like China, Germany, and France. Not surprising considering we frack and drill the highest quality in he world.

Technically, on the daily chart below I have placed my favorite technical indicators.  I call this combination of indicators the "10/20/50/BB/ Trend Finder" strategy. They are the 10 day Simple Moving Average (SMA, red line), the 20 day Simple Moving Average (SMA, green line), and the 50 day Simple Moving Average (SMA, royal blue line). I have also added the Bollinger Bands (BB's, light blue shaded area) and Candlesticks (red and green bars with the wicks).

At the current price for WTI Crude Oil on the daily chart below the market is holding just above the near term support of the 10 day SMA. Notice the 10 day SMA has recently crossed up and over the 20 day SMA which was the start of a PRINCIPAL TREND up. 

This PRICIPAL TREND up occurs after the 10 day SMA crosses up and over the 20 day SMA. The PRINCIPAL TREND up continues as both indicators point upward on fairly sharp angles and the market uses the 10 day SMA as support, bouncing up and off of he indicator to make new highs each time the market pulls down.

 

 

 

My indicators on the daily RBOB Unleaded Gasoline chart below show me a market that is poised to make new highs if it can close above the previous high. As it stands now, after 5 up days out 5 trading days and a cross of the 10 day SMA up and over the 20 day SMA the first two items of a PRINCIPAL TREND have occurred; the cross and the support. 

 

I figured this out by placing my favorite indicators on the charts and studying them which I found at: http://www.markethead.com/2.0/free_trial.asp?ap=mmckinne , which is a web application that we have developed for our clients called MARKETHEAD where I get about 80% of all my research from. That means I get both technical and fundamental research from this web app and I am a veteran series 3 Broker of 18 years. So if I'm using it then maybe my readers should check it out. Yes?

Options Play: Crude Freeze Reality

Options Play: Crude Freeze Reality

With OPEC Producing At Maximum Capacity, How Does A Freeze Help Prices?

 

Fundamentally, on the surface, the meeting of the OPEC Cartel in Doha this past weekend was a failure for Crude Oil bulls. No agreement was made to freeze Crude Oil production. Mainly because Saudi Arabia and Iran were unable to get on the same page.

To me it's a fiasco. If they were to freeze production and they are producing at maximum capacity how does that help prices?

Technically, on the daily chart below I have placed my favorite technical indicators.  I call this combination of indicators the "10/20/50/BB/ Trend Finder" strategy. They are the 10 day Simple Moving Average (SMA, red line), the 20 day Simple Moving Average (SMA, green line), and the 50 day Simple Moving Average (SMA, royal blue line). I have also added the Bollinger Bands (BB's, light blue shaded area) and Candlesticks (red and green bars with the wicks).

At the current price on the chart below the market is holding just above the near term support of the 10 day SMA. Notice the 10 day SMA has just crossed up and over the 20 day SMA indicating a potential buy. However, if the 10 day SMA doesn't hold as support the market could go back to the bottom of the range indicated by the bottom line of the BB's.

 

My favorite indicators on the monthly chart below show me a market that is desperate to find a bottom. After taking out the previous low of $35/barrel back in 2009, I don't see a bottom on the chart. Also notice how the market has bumped up against the resistance of the 10 period SMA, leaving the PRINCIPAL trend down in effect. 

 

I figured this out by placing my favorite indicators on the charts and studying them which I found at: http://www.markethead.com/2.0/free_trial.asp?ap=mmckinne , which is a web application that we have developed for our clients called MARKETHEAD where I get about 80% of all my research from.

Options Play: Unleaded Gas Prices Still Reasonable

Options Play: Unleaded Gas Prices Still Reasonable

As we head into the summer, Unleaded Gasoline prices are still fairly low at the pump.

 

Fundamentally, motor gasoline exports are still strong and domestic usage is also viable. As far as supplies are concerned, we still have large stockpiles, but not insurmountable.

Retail gasoline prices are at about $1.90/gallon in the heart of the Midwest. I believe prices could rally 20-25 cents and there would be no real impact on demand. I just don't feel like folks will cancel their summer vacation if gas is $5-10 more to fill up. On the other hand, positioned properly with an options play a 20-25 cent move over the next 2-4 weeks could translate into significant gains.

I have also added the Bollinger Bands (BB's, light blue shaded area) and Candlesticks (red and green bars with the wicks).

 

My favorite indicators show me that we have traded below the support of both the 10 day SMA and the 20 day SMA, but holding so far at the 50 day SMA. The current trend is mixed as the 10 day SMA and the 20 day SMA are pointing lower while the 50 day SMA is on an upward slope. The top line BB is pointing sideways and the bottom line BB is pointing lower. 

I figured this out by placing my favorite indicators on the charts and studying them which I found at: http://www.markethead.com/2.0/free_trial.asp?ap=mmckinne , which is a web application that we have developed for our clients called MARKETHEAD where I get about 80% of all my research from.

Option Play:  

A potential play here could be a 3 to 1 ratio strategy with call spreads vs. a put. This strategy could be called a long straddle.

Options Play: Unleaded Gas Exports Remain Strong

According to Energy Information Agency (EIA), motor gasoline exports are surging.

 

Fundamentally, we are seeing demand for Motor gasoline strong on two fronts, domestically and abroad. Domestically, Hightower reports that demand for Unleaded Gasoline is outpacing last year by more than 7% for the last four weeks. Abroad, the Energy Information Agency or EIA which is the government reporting body, stated that, "Motor gasoline was the second-largest U.S. petroleum product export in 2015, averaging 618,000 b/d and exported to 102 different countries, up 68,000 b/d from 2014". The big consumers here were Mexico, Central and South America, and Africa.

This is evident by the fact that the EIA reported a larger than expected dip in supplies this week by more than 4 million barrels. While overall supplies are still large, I expect this trend of strong demand to continue as we chew into stockpiles in the coming days and weeks.

On the daily chart above my favorite indicators show me that we are in a principal trend up which is the strongest form of an upward trend that my favorite indicators can show me. This occurs when the 10 day SMA crosses up and over the 20 day SMA as both indicators are pointing up on the chart and the market trades above the 10 day SMA.

Options Play: Unleaded Gas Prices Continue To Rally

 

As prices bounce off of the lows in RBOB, U.S. crude exports are rising and jobs in the oil industry are falling.

 

Fundamentally, RBOB Unleaded Gasoline prices continue to move higher and it would seem like a "no brainer" that prices would continue to rally. I know better. If trading was easy everyone would be rich so it's important in my view to take into consideration all the factors, bullish and bearish.

Let's look at the bullish fundamentals of the market. It seems low prices have caused U.S. crude exports to be on the rise. In fact, Bloomberg is reporting that exports are on the move from the U.S. to countries like France, Germany, the Netherlands, Israel, Panama, and yes China. In addition, we are headed into the summer months and while I firmly believe that there is no such thing as "seasonal" price moves in commodity markets, typically people drive more as the weather gets warmer and increased demand could certainly help higher prices. And finally, there is always the potential  for refinery problems as they ramp up activity converting Crude Oil to Gasoline.

On the bear side, lost jobs can't be good for demand. And this is what we are looking at in the crude industry. Low prices have forced many companies to close their doors and even into bankruptcy. In fact, USA Today reports, "Worker's in the industry are feeling the brunt. Oil and gas companies worldwide have publicly announced plans to cut more than 319,000 jobs since late 2014, according to Houston energy consultants Graves & Co.,which tracks layoffs." That sounds like the same 'ol song and dance. Other bearish fundamentals include large stockpiles and over production by OPEC and non OPEC nations.
