The Energy Report - Oil on All Fronts
Phil Flynn I Price Group - Commodities - 20.06.2014

Oil and precious metals soar as President Obama will send up to 300 advisers to Iraq and Russia builds up troops on the Ukraine border. I bet that it is making the ISIS and other Sunni-militants nervous. Brent crude led the way hitting a 9 month high with WTI being dragged along for the ride. The market rallied after the President spoke because without stronger U.S. military support the odds of the ISIS gaining more ground is high. Gold and silver broke out as the Fed will keep rates low and increasing geo-political risk in Iraq but in the Ukraine as well. Reports that the Ukraine army is rolling over pro-Russian separatists may be the motivation for Russia to build up troops on the Ukraine border. Talks of a cease-fire may be falling on deaf ears and the fighting goes on. Russia's prime minister denies the troop buildup and says that Russia is just securing the border. In the mean-time gas has been cut to the Ukraine so there has been a real disruption of supply.

That has not been the case in southern Iraq just yet but the risks of gas shortages and diesel products and the lack of oil to feed electric plants are high in Bagdad. The Baiji refinery that is under siege accounts for about one-third of the nation's refining capacity. Fox News reported that "Iraq's government insisted Thursday that security forces were still in control of the country's largest oil refinery, despite claims that Al Qaeda-aligned Sunni Muslim insurgents had raised their flag over the facility. A witness who drove past the Baiji refinery told the Associated Press that militants from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) had hung black banners on the refinery's watch towers and were manning checkpoints around the building. He said a huge fire in one of its tankers was raging at the time. The witness spoke on condition of anonymity because he feared reprisals.

An Iraqi security official said the government force protecting the refinery was still inside Thursday and that they were in regular contact with Baghdad. The refinery's workers had been evacuated to nearby villages, he said. He also said the militants took over a building just outside the refinery and were using it to fire at the government force." he Risk is going to be high going into the weekend! We will continue to buy breaks.

Nat Gas pulled pack after the EIA reported that working gas in storage was 1,719 Bcf as of Friday, June 13, 2014, according to EIA estimates. This represents a net increase of 113 Bcf from the previous week. Stocks were 706 Bcf less than last year at this time and 851 Bcf below the 5-year average of 2,570 Bcf. In the East Region, stocks were 397 Bcf below the 5-year average following net injections of 70 Bcf. Stocks in the Producing Region were 350 Bcf below the 5-year average of 981 Bcf after a net injection of 27 Bcf. Stocks in the West Region were 104 Bcf below the 5-year average after a net addition of 16 Bcf. At 1,719 Bcf, total working gas is below the 5-year historical range.

The key for our Natural Gas future is infrastructure that is lacking. Natural Gas intelligence reports billed as "America's Natural Gas Highway" has been established with the opening of a fueling station in El Paso, TX, according to fuel supplier and station developer Clean Energy Fuels Corp. of Newport Beach, CA. The completed link enables heavy-duty liquefied natural gas (LNG) truck fueling along more than 1,500 miles of Interstate Highway 10, the transcontinental highway between California and Florida.

In addition, on Tuesday Clean Energy said it had opened additional natural gas vehicle (NGV) fueling stations and/or begun construction to support a growing portfolio of NGV customers in the heavy-duty trucking, refuse and ready-mix market sectors. "One corridor at a time, our nationwide network [see Daily GPI, Aug. 25, 2011] is opening and changing how America moves," said Clean Energy CEO Andrew Littlefair. "The I-10 from Los Angeles to Houston is another link in America's goods-movement infrastructure now fueling with natural gas." The newly opened El Paso LNG fueling station will be used by EJ Madison's hauling for Cardinal Health, as announced earlier this year in a fueling agreement with Clean Energy. The fleet currently has traveled more than 500,000 miles.

EJ Madison intends to expand this fleet with an additional 30 dual-fuel LNG/diesel trucks in the coming months, according to Clean Energy. El Paso-based Clean Fuel Technologies LLC handled all conversions. Once fully deployed, this fleet is forecasted to consume approximately 36,000 diesel-gallon-equivalents (DGE) of LNG/year. Additionally in the trucking sector, Clean Energy said it has signed a multi-year fueling deal with Chavez Trucking to open another public access LNG station in West Sacramento, CA, near the state capital. Chavez plans to deploy 15 heavy-duty LNG trucks to haul bulk aggregate materials such as road-building and construction materials. The fleet will consume about 210,000 DGEs/year.

For the refuse sector, Clean Energy said it plans to expand compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling operations with a second facility for New Haven, CT-based All American Waste. The new fueling station will be built and operated by Clean Energy. The new facility will include 40 time-fill fueling posts for providing CNG to the refuse fleet, along with two public fast-fill dispensers with four fueling hoses. Located in the heart of New Haven, the station is scheduled to open during the fourth quarter.

The Wall Street Journal reports "A federal agency on Thursday approved a natural-gas export terminal in Louisiana, marking the second time the U.S. government has signed off on such a project. The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission authorized Cameron LNG LLC, a unit of San Diego-based Sempra Energy, SRE +0.50% to operate and construct a liquefied-natural-gas export facility in Hackberry, La., just east of the Texas border. The approval focused on the project's environmental assessment. It was the last major regulatory hurdle Cameron had to overcome and mostly clears the way for the nearly $10 billion project to begin construction. Sempra expects to begin construction later this year and will export up to 1.7 billion cubic feet of natural gas a day by 2019.

In the wake of the U.S. oil and natural gas boom, companies have been scrambling in the past few years to get federal approval to export natural gas, a reversal from market trends as recent as 2008 when companies were building import terminals. There are a couple dozen export proposals in the approval process. Policy makers in Washington have sharpened their focus on natural-gas exports over the past few months as the Russia-Ukraine conflict accentuates the energy dependence of Eastern Europe, and Ukraine specifically, on Russia. Russian state gas giant Gazprom said earlier this week it was suspending natural-gas deliveries to Ukraine. Sempra Energy CEO and Chairman Debra Reed praised the development. "Today's approval is another important step in delivering natural gas to America's trading partners abroad," said Ms. Reed. "We appreciate the continued support of leaders like Senator Landrieu who are helping to move the U.S. LNG industry forward." Sen. Mary Landrieu (D., La.), chairman of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, also issued a statement that was released in coordination with Sempra's statement. "The Department of Energy should follow FERC's lead and issue the final approval for the project, and they should do so quickly."

Sempra said it plans to export gas to Japan and European nations, though it didn't specify which ones. Earlier this year, Cameron received the other needed government approval from the Energy Department, which conditionally authorized it to export natural gas to countries that aren't free-trade partners with the U.S., a category of countries that must overcome a higher regulatory burden.

The DOE now must decide whether to give a final approval for the project, a step that is considered minor compared with the department's conditional approval and FERC's environmental review. A lawsuit by companies or interest groups critical of natural-gas exports based on either environmental or price concerns could still ensue, though it is unlikely that would derail the project given it is so far along in the review process. Ms. Landrieu, who is in a tight re-election race this year, urged the department to quickly approve Cameron.

Raymond James analyst Darren Horowitz said the FERC approval was a major milestone for the Sempra-led project. "I think this project is very clear-cut," he said, noting that its 1.7 billion cubic feet of natural gas export capacity is fully subscribed. "I think this one is in good shape to not only be approved from a final investment decision standpoint, but to start getting under way in short order."

Die amerikanischen Börsen bewegten sich in der vergangenen Handelswoche kaum und notieren fast unverändert auf einem hohen Niveau. Die Notenbanksitzung der EZB brachte ebenso wenig Bewegung mit sich wie die Amtseinführung des 45. US-Präsidenten Donald Trump. Dieser bekräftigte in seiner Rede nochmals, dass eine neue Zeitrechnung am vergangenen Freitag begonnen hat. Eine Zeit, in der die USA wieder wachsen wird und die Bürger des Landes in erster Linie von diesem Wachstum profitieren werden. Die Aussage ist dabei nicht neu und der US-Aktienmarkt hat ein aufkommendes Wachstum in den USA bereits eingepreist. ... mehr

Formationstrader I S. Grass - Indizes - 23.01.2017
S&P 500 Wochenchart (mittelfristig): In der vergangenen Handelswoche setzte der S&P 500 seine enge Seitwärtskonsolidierung fort. Insgesamt hält diese Konsolidierung nun bereits 6 Wochen an. Erfahrungsgemäß nähert sich nach einer so langen sehr engen Konsolidierungszeit so langsam das Ende. Ob dieses Ende eine neue Trendbewegung oder einfach nur eine Ausdehnung der Konsolidierung in einer breitere Korrektur-Range sein wird, ist derzeit noch nicht definierbar. Bei den Indikatoren geben sowohl die Stochastik, als auch das Momentum weiterhin grünes Licht für steigende Kurse. ... mehr

Liebe Leserinnen, liebe Leser, die Titanic war nicht einfach nur Passagierschiff. Die renommierte Fachzeitschrift „The Shipbuilder“ bezeichnete sie als „praktisch unsinkbar“. Am 14. April 1912 kollidierte das Wunder der Technik mit einem Eisberg und nach weniger als drei Stunden lagen Tonnen von Stahl verteilt auf einer Länge von 269 Metern auf dem Grund des Nordatlantiks. Nichts ist unmöglich und selbst wenn es nur einziges Mal passiert, kann es weitreichende Konsequenzen haben. ... mehr

trading-house.net - Indizes - 23.01.2017
Liebe Leserinnen, liebe Leser, der Dax-Index scheint weiter nach oben in Richtung 12.000 Punkte steigen zu wollen. Dies zeigt die aktuelle Stärke des Index. Letzte Woche fiel der Index auf die 11.400 Punkte, und zügig kaufen die Marktteilnehmer den Index wieder über 11.600 Punkte. Das Jahreshoch bei 11.700 Punkten wird der nächste wichtige Punkt. Gelingt es dem Index über diesen Widerstand zu steigen, so wartet als nächstes die runde 12.000er-Marke. Bis März dürfte diese Entwicklung anhalten, bis dahin legen institutionelle Anleger neue Fondgelder an. ... mehr

Wochenausblick: Trump bestimmt die Richtung
Börse Frankfurt - Indizes - 23.01.2017
23. Januar 2017. FRANKFURT (Börse Frankfurt). Heute beginnt der offizielle Politikbetrieb der neuen US-Administration. Noch liegt nicht auf dem Tisch, welchen Themen sich Donald Trump vorrangig widmen wird. Ebenso offen ist, ob dies die Aktienmärkte schon in dieser Woche aus ihrer abwartenden Haltung herausreißt, wie Chris-Oliver Schickentanz erwartet. Die anstehende Offenlegung der Konzernbücher für das vierte Quartal birgt für den Analysten der Commerzbank indes Überraschungspotenzial. Angesichts der jüngsten globalen Konjunkturverbesserungen bestünden Chancen, dass sich die Zahlen im Durchschnitt oberhalb der bisherigen Markterwartungen bewegen werden. ... mehr

Dax-Fahrplan: DAX tritt annähernd auf der Stelle
Admiral Markets - Indizes - 23.01.2017
Der DAX ging am Montagmorgen der vergangenen Handelswoche bei 11.573 Punkten in den vorbörslichen Handel. Er startete damit rund 30 Punkte unter dem nachbörslichen Schluss der Vorwoche. In den letzten fünf Handelstagen schwankte er weiterhin um die Marke von 11.570 Punkten. Am Dienstag konnte diese nicht gehalten werden und rutschte nach unten bis in den Bereich der 10.420 Punkte ab. Nach einer Stabilisierung kehrte der DAX jedoch nach oben an vorheriges Niveau zurück. Am Mittwoch kam es dann erneut zu einer kleinen Schwächephase, die aber nicht wesentlich unter die 11.550 Punkte ging. Das Wochenhoch konnte bei 11.645 Punkten den oberen Boxbereich erreichen, jedoch nicht anhaltend überlaufen. ... mehr

Die Zinsen in der Eurozone bleiben auf bisherigen Niveau. Die EZB unter Mario Draghi hat am Donnerstag beschlossen, den Leitzins, den Einlagezinssatz und den Ausleihungssatz nicht zu verändern. Der kleine Verfallstag am Freitag brachte dem deutschen Leitindex DAX mit 4.065.630.541,00 EUR ein hohes Handelsvolumen. An der Wall Street sorgte die Amtseinführung von Donald Trump an der Wall Street nur kurzfristig für leichte Abgaben.

DAX Analyse – DAX tritt auf der Stelle!
RoboForex I B. Wachsmann - Indizes - 23.01.2017
Marktsituation DAX – 23. Januar 2017 Dass Mario Draghi seinem eingeschlagenen Weg treu bleibt ist im Nachhinein mehr als logisch und konsequent. Draghi betonte im Rahmen der Pressekonferenz, dass der EZB-Rat zu keinem Zeitpunkt darüber diskutiert habe, ob ein Tapering in Frage käme. Dabei unterstrich er abermals, dass die Reduzierung der Anleihekäufe nicht als Tapering zu verstehen sei. Damit bleibt die europäische Zentralbank dem Kurs der ultralockeren Geldpolitik treu. Dies bekräftige Draghi ebenfalls zu Beginn der Pressekonferenz als er aussagte, dass die Leitzinsen für längere Zeit auf dem aktuellen Niveau oder darunter liegen werden. ... mehr
