The Energy Information Administration's (EIA) Crude Oil Inventories measures the weekly change in the number of barrels of commercial crude oil held by US firms. The level of inventories influences the price of petroleum products, which can have an impact on inflation.

If the increase in crude inventories is more than expected, it implies weaker demand and is bearish for crude prices. The same can be said if a decline in inventories is less than expected.

In the reference to "If the increase in crude inventories is more than expected, it implies weaker demand and is bearish for crude prices. The same can be said if a decline in inventories is less than expected. " While this is logical, we saw that large reserves actually made Crude Oil even more expensive. Reserves were double than expected (6.466M vs 3.289m) and logically, for that reason price in USD suppose to go down. Oh, well, it did not happen! Price went up! Now, it is time for all beginner traders to understand what really moves Forex market. Top 10 banks in the world move the market! Not Fibonacci etc! When you see sharp swing out of no-where..no news no nothing... banks are moving the market! When you see good news for some currency and currency falls down.. guess what? Banks are going again YOU and logic! They see positions on the market and they go "against you"! This is why 95% of investors stay broke after few months of trading.

Alex after reading your comment I totally agree with you. If the inventory of anything increases logically the price should decrease but you gave great insight when you said the price of gasoline in the US should have gone down but it didn't. Instead the price went up. I once read this quote that said "a fact that is not so widely known is 95% of the winning is done by only 5% of the participants." After reading your post you have learned that the top 10% of the banks are really controlling what the price of gas is regardless of inventories
