Is $57 WTI Crude Oil Sustainable?

oil pump
From Michael Lynch:

When the price of oil was over $100 a barrel, I was often derided for suggesting that level was a) elevated and b) unsustainable. (I was also derided in 2006 for suggesting in Forbes the price might go as low as $20 by 2008, which it almost did, but not because of market fundamentals as I thought but rather due to the financial crisis. Mea very culpa. But when the price soared in 2008 and I wrote columns titled "Investing for the Oil Price Collapse," the response was beyond derisive, so tongue-stuck-out-emoji.)

Biotech ETF sees Big Inflow

biotech stock
From ETF Channel Staff: Investors are actually buying and selling ''units''. These ''units'' can be traded back and forth just like stocks, but can also be created or destroyed to accommodate investor demand. Each week we monitor the week-over-week change in shares outstanding data, to keep a lookout for those ETFs experiencing notable inflows (many new units created) or outflows (many old units destroyed). Creation of new units will mean the underlying holdings of the ETF need to be purchased, while destruction of units involves selling underlying holdings, so large flows can also impact the individual components held within ETFs.

From Myra P. Saefong: Oil futures gained more ground on Wednesday after data from the Energy Information Administration revealed that U.S. crude supplies unexpectedly dropped by 8.6 million barrels.

Supplies of gasoline fell by 1.9 million barrels, while distillates edged down by 300,000 barrels last week, according to the EIA.

Japanese ETF sees noteworthy outflows

2019 Stocks increase
From ETF Channel Staff: Exchange traded funds (ETFs) trade just like stocks, but instead of ''shares'' investors are actually buying and selling ''units''. These ''units'' can be traded back and forth just like stocks, but can also be created or destroyed to accommodate investor demand. Each week we monitor the week-over-week change in shares outstanding data, to keep a lookout for those ETFs experiencing notable inflows (many new units created) or outflows (many old units destroyed). Creation of new units will mean the underlying holdings of the ETF need to be purchased, while destruction of units involves selling underlying holdings, so large flows can also impact the individual components held within ETFs.
