Crude oil

Last week, EIA and IEA released monthly reports, OPEC monthly reports have not yet been released. From the balance sheet, EIA and IEA have both revised up global demand growth and non-OPEC supply. However, the upward revision of demand is mainly due to the correction of demand in the second quarter, and the balance of supply and demand has also improved throughout the year. As in the previous month, both major organizations believe that the oil market will enter a stage of shortage in the third quarter.

The main repair countries are the United States and Brazil, with 200,000 barrels/day and 150,000 barrels per day. EIA expects US crude oil output to decline by 600,000 barrels/day this year, up 70,000 barrels/day from last month. IEA's non-OPEC supply is expected to decline by 2.98 million barrels/day in 2020, up 190,000 barrels/day from last month, and all major production areas around the world have slightly increased.

OPEC output: EIA caliber OPEC output fell by 1.6 million barrels/day to 22.71 million barrels/day in June, among which the countries with the largest declines were Saudi Arabia, Iraq and Nigeria, which decreased by 75, 50 and 150,000 barrels/day respectively. IEA caliber June OPEC output fell 1.9 million barrels per day to 22.19 million barrels per day, OPEC's overall compliance rate has reached 112%.

Call on OPEC: EIA's estimated COO for 2020 is 24.32 million barrels/day, up 80,000 barrels/day from the previous month. According to the EIA balance sheet, the difference between supply and demand in the first to fourth quarters is 5.5 million barrels/day, 7.9 million barrels/day, -3.4 million barrels/day, -3.1 million barrels/day. The IEA estimates that the COO in 2020 will be 24.22 million barrels/day, up 170,000 barrels/day from the previous month, and the COO will be 2180, 1640, 2820, and 30.4 million barrels/day in the first to fourth quarters.

Trading Strategy

1. Arbitrage: Last week, the overall inventory of the port was accumulated but the coarse powder was still falling. The decline in pig iron was not obvious. The sales of construction materials rebounded last week. It is necessary to continue to observe the recovery of construction material demand after the rainy season. The rebound in demand will support the production of pig iron. From the perspective of iron ore supply, the supply pressure is expected to ease after the end of the Australian impulse. The overall market is expected to run strongly, and it is recommended to cash and carry arbitrage on 2101-2105.

2. Option strategy: It is recommended to consider selling 2009 put options, that is I2009-P-750. (For reference only)


The repair has not been fulfilled, and the downstream polyester has accumulated pressure and reduced the burden

Prospects of the balance sheet: Under the background that PTA still has processing profits, the possibility of additional overhauls at Yisheng and Tongkun has decreased. Combined with the reduction of polyester production, it will remove the warehouse in June and accumulate quickly in July. In terms of operation, it is advised to wait and see for unilateral strategy; for the strategy across varieties, it is estimated that PTA in July will accumulate a small amount of warehouse. The performance of the cross-species may be weak, but the willingness of the upstream factory to maintain and control should still be judged based on the change in processing fees; for strategy across period, Yisheng Tongkun's July-August maintenance assumptions are still high after cashing. The warehouse receipt pressure is still there, and maintains expectations of selling 2009 and buying 2101. It is advised to wait and see, as well as focus on PTA factory inspection and fulfillment wishes of July to August, and the downstream restocking space.
