    Crude inventories rose more than expected partly due to the current release of oil from strategic reserves while gasoline inventories drops less than expected. Overall negative with RBOB Gasoline down 0.6% following the release.

    US inventory data due shortly at 16:30 CET. US Crude inventories are expected to rise for the 13th time in 14 weeks, this time by around 2.5 million barrels. Some focus on gasoline inventories after the price has risen to the highest since last August as refinery maintenance reduce supplies for a ninth straight week. The changing inventory levels between Cushing and PADD3 (Gulf of Mexico) could also trigger a reaction.

    New home sales plummets 14.5% month-on-month to 384,000 in March in the US, far from the consensus expectation of +2.3%. Furthermore the decline in new home sales in February was revised to 4.5% from 3.3%.

    Sales declined most in the Midwest to 51,000 from 65,000, a drop of 21.5% m/m, followed by the West and South. The Northeast recorded a minor increase to 27,000 from 24,000.

    While the report surprised consensus it would not come as a shock to those watching the housing starts series, which had been signalling a drop in sales (chart 1).

    GBPUSD techs showing a bit of a momentum breakdown after the BoE minutes failed to build the hawkish case for the BoE (though they were relatively neutral - the market is simply leaning hard on sterling appreciation and needs constant input to keep the pressure higher). A bigger disappointment would be a move below the local support around 1.6775, below which recent longs have likely placed some portion of their stops. (See chart below.) The pair could be more vulnerable to downside accelerations after the most recent COT report showed net speculative sterling longs near their highest levels since 2007 as of last Tuesday and likely even longer now. Further out, a bigger breakdown awaits if 1.6700/1.6675 can't hold if/after the local support breaks.

    It's difficult not to like it. Perhaps in June or so it breaks, when the ECB finally gets around to doing something. Or perhaps the pattern will...
