Oil just had a 6-week rally, something that’s only occurred 5 times in the last 9 years

From CNBC.com staff: Oil prices have risen for sixth consecutive weeks, notching an 11% gain for crude during the rally. While a pullback could occur -- the oil trade was close to flat on Tuesday as overseas supply threats balanced higher U.S. inventories -- recent history suggests there are more gains to come, not just in oil but also in stocks.

From Wayne Duggan: Winter is over in the United States, which has historically been a good time for investors to sell natural gas. This year, seasonably cold weather in parts of the country helped support natural gas demand, but producers are also pumping out unprecedented supply.

Natural gas moves lower after weekly EIA report

From Myra P. Saefong: The U.S. Energy Information Administration reported Thursday that domestic supplies of natural gas rose by 25 billion cubic feet for the week ended April 5. The data, however, also included a downward adjustment to the previous week's total to account for a reclassification of some gas stocks. Analysts polled by S&P Global Platts had expected an increase of 33 billion cubic feet for the latest week. Total stocks now stand at 1.155 trillion cubic feet, down 183 billion cubic feet from a year ago and 485 billion below the five-year average, the government said. May natural gas NGK19, -1.63% traded at $2.697 per million British thermal units, down less than a half cent, or 0.1%, from Wednesday's settlement.

From Myra Saefong: The Energy Information Administration on Wednesday reported that U.S. crude supplies climbed by 7 million barrels for the week ended April 5. Analysts polled by S&P Global Platts expected a rise of 2.8 million barrels, following two consecutive weeks of increases. The American Petroleum Institute on Tuesday had reported a climb of 4.1 million barrels, according to sources. The EIA data, however, also showed that supplies of gasoline dropped by 7.7 million barrels, while distillates declined by 100,000 barrels last week, according to the EIA. The S&P Global Platts survey had shown expectations for supply declines of 1.9 million barrels for gasoline and 1.5 million barrels for distillates. May West Texas Intermediate crude CLK9, +0.95% was up 33 cents, or 0.5%, at 64.31 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange, little changed from before the supply data's release.

2019 Stocks increase
From Sweta Killa: Broad commodities bounced back strongly after a weak fourth quarter driven by tightening supply and optimism over demand. Additionally, Fed's dovish stance, which has kept U.S. dollar under pressure, added to the strength. A weak dollar makes dollar-denominated assets attractive for foreign investors, raising the appeal for commodities.
