WTI Crude Crashes Below $50 As Hedgies Lose Faith In OPEC

• zerohedge.com by Tyler Durden

weekly loss since early March as signs that OPEC will continue with output reductions are offset by growing U.S. production and inventory gluts. Having tried and failed to spark some momentum yesterday (via Saudi jawboning and Goldman confidence), WTI Crude just plunged below $50 for the first time since March.

"It all comes down to whether OPEC can deliver inventory cuts," Bill O'Grady, chief market strategist at Confluence Investment Management in St. Louis, said by telephone. "So far we haven't seen a lot of evidence that they're succeeding."
