    WTI Crude oil under some relative price pressure today ahead of inventory data later this week which is expected to show another rise in US inventories. The crisis in Ukraine and the risk of escalating tensions between Russia and the West has interestingly triggered some speculation that Russia may not be in such a strong position despite their huge crude exports. JPM has been speculating how the US with its huge and currently by law non-exportable oil reserves could flood the market with oil if Russia should cut of supplies to the West. The bank in their analysis compares the situation with Saudi Arabia back in 1986 when they increased production rapidly and drove down the price in order to punish Russia over its war against Afghanistan. Should the US decide to deploy the same oil tactic they could see the price of prompt crude fall as low as 75 USD/barrel and this would seriously hurt Russia once again.

    The Brent benchmark backlash

    Ole Hansen
    Brent Oil is used as the benchmark for more than half of all global transactions but only a bit more than one percent originates from the four production sites which make up the benchmark.

    Correction: I mentioned half a billion contracts of Brent Crude traded daily instead of barrels of oil which is the correct measure.

    Ukraine crisis: could the gas be cut off?

    Angus Walker
    As Ukrainian forces retake territory occupied by pro-Russian militias, the crisis is heating up. Russia could retaliate by cutting off gas supplies to Ukraine and Europe. Around a third of Europe's gas comes from Russia with forty percent pumped through Ukraine.

    Traders are worried about being caught short in the crude oil market at the moment. This continue to support both WTI and Brent with the North Sea variety now trading back up to 110 USD/barrel for the first time in six weeks. Rising supply from Libya and the slowing demand from China are not front page news at the moment while the Ukraine crisis continue. In the US crude inventories are expected to rise again but falling gasoline inventories due to strong demand and specifics related to Cushing continue to support WTI Crude. https://www.tradingfloor.com/posts/us-eia-weekly-petroleum-status-report-2356230

    Gold has been on the defensive during Asian trading following a very ugly day yesterday. The news that Ukrainian forces had launched special operations and Putin's warning about a civil war only helped to stabilize the price and not attract new buying. For now the market is back in neutral after the positive sentiment built up over the past week was wiped out in a matter of minutes. The change in sentiment has been driven by improved US economic data this week but also a report from the World Gold Council yesterday did some damage as it estimated that China may have 1,000 tons of gold tied up in trade financing deals. This puts into doubt the future demand from China should the government intensify its attempt to crackdown on using commodities to raise finance. Resistance is today's pivot at 1304.6 followed by 1313. Support at 1293 and 1282
