News details:

  1. The EIA short-term energy outlook report released on Tuesday (September 10) lowered the demand and price expectations for crude oil in the next two years. The report lowered the forecast of global crude oil demand growth by 110,000 barrels per day to 890,000 barrels per day. The price of WTI crude oil is expected to be US$56.31 per barrel in 2019, which was previously expected to be US$57.87 per barrel. Goldman Sachs also lowered its forecast for crude oil growth in 2019 from 1.1 million barrels per day to 1 million barrels per day. In the early morning of Wednesday (September 11), the US crude oil inventories unexpectedly fell by 7.23 million barrels to 421.9 million barrels in the week ended September 6, far exceeding the expected decrease of 2.6 million barrels; gasoline inventories decreased by 4.46 million barrels.

  1. On Tuesday (September 10), US President Donald Trump unexpectedly announced the dismissal of US National Security Adviser Bolton and said he strongly disagreed with many of his recommendations.
