U.S. Crude Oil (WTI) traded above the $63 handle on Tuesday, as the American Petroleum Institute (API) reported an exceptionally large draw of 11.19 million barrels of U.S. crude oil inventories for the week ending 5th January, against an expectation of 3.89 million barrels. This is the sixth week in a row that API has reported large draws. Oil prices have also been supported by a year of production cuts led by the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) and Russia. The cuts, which started in January 2017, are scheduled to continue through 2018.

Attention will now turn to the Energy Information Administration (EIA) inventory data due on Wednesday. If the large draw is replicated, it would be the biggest decline in inventories for this time of the year since 1999.
