    Crude oil remains under pressure the day after another US inventory report highlighted the slow progress in terms of getting stock levels down. Crude oil initially jumped Wednesday on a bigger-than-expected crude draw and slowing production growth only to drop on the realisation that the oil surplus is being moved to gasoline and diesel through surging refinery demand and overseas through a jump in exports. The focus now is on gasoline which tends to rally in during April but so far has lost 11% during the last ten sessions.
    Brent and WTI have both broken below their 200-day moving averages and for WTI crude it risks opening up for an extension towards $45.80/b via the March low at $47.05/b.
