Futures show solid gains on home sales

It was one of those days in the pits as the market opened positive and stayed there all day. After yesterday’s impressive construction spending report and today’s strong Home sales news, buyers appeared willing to jump back into Commodities. Many point out that we still look to be oversupplied, but by how much, should be defined as the inventory report gets released on Thursday. As we see so often, and shown by the chart below, a good deal of buying occurs after a floor appears to be defined. Hindsight being perfect of course. One should note how little we have heard from OPEC over the last few weeks during the correction. This is also typically about the time when news outlets will pick up stories on gas prices. Remember the street pricing being several days behind what the NYMEX does. All in all, the taking back of yesterdays losses today was somewhat expected as the sideways action should continue prior to the first named storm of the season. At the close, Crude gained a mere .28 to $72.86 yet RBOB jumped .0436 to $2.0261 and HEAT added .0355 to $2.0059.
