Sr. Market Analyst at The PRICE Futures Group

Phil Flynn is writer of The Energy Report, a daily market commentary discussing oil, the Middle East, American government, economics, and their effects on the world's energies markets, as well as other commodity markets. 


The Safe Bet
Is it time to play it safe? The Saudi oil minister Khalid Al-Falih said the safe bet coming out of the OPEC meeting today is a 9-month extension of the current 1.8 million barrels a day of OPEC and non-OPEC production cuts.
OPEC And Company
While there has been some last-minute negotiating by some players like Iraq, it is likely the deal will be extended by nine months.
Selling The Reserve
The White House says they can raise 1.5 billion dollars by selling the oil out of the reserve and if passed, could slow the global oil market rebalancing.
Crude: All On Board
All other OPEC members are on board for the extension of production cuts leading to speculation that even a bigger cut might be in the works.
Geo Politics Playtime
Crude oil prices are playing the geopolitical gyration game. Events in Brazil, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Venezuela and the United States have oil prices and traders trying to price in risk in a rapidly changing political world.
Trump Slump
Oil is struggling even after the Energy Information Administration reported the 6th drawdown in crude oil in a row and the fact that U.S. oil production dipped for the first time in 13 weeks.
