Blue Lacy Advisors, LLC, - Middle of November Crude Oil Market Commentary
Minneapolis, MN | November 14, 2022 | By: Steve Sinos, Blue Lacy Advisors, LLC
Despite being a volatile week for prices, we are still facing the same fundamental balances as last week. Most of the action seems to have been driven by expiry and even the models are calculating the same projected volatility for the upcoming weeks.
Positioning was more bullish this week than in recent weeks. Speculative traders abandoned more shorts and added more longs. Many traders are holding long positions (in the top decile), but that translates into an average of 2,475 lots long, which is near the bottom of the distribution. So, it appears to be a tentative bunch that holds the net long position of 41k contracts.
