Boosted by good economic data, and the impact of futures warehouse receipt cancellation on the market was less than expected, the futures price rose again in late March, and then prepared to consolidate in the volatile range

II. Market analysis

1. International crude oil at the beginning of the year, boosted by cold weather, geopolitical factors and optimistic economic data, and investors returning to the market after the New Year holiday, international crude oil continued to rise, rising above $83/barrel. However, since then, the inventory data released by the EIA shows that the U.S. crude oil inventory is still abundant, and the demand for heating oil continues to be weak. In addition, the demand for heating oil will gradually fall as the temperature rises, the U.S. macroeconomic data is poor and the dollar is stronger, and the oil price begins to fall from a high level. Subsequently, as the Central Bank of China raised the reserve ratio and controlled the extent of credit expansion, US President Barack Obama issued a proposal to limit bank risk-taking, the financial market was full of bad news, and the demand for crude oil was still weak, and the oil price fell continuously. Affected by favorable economic data and geopolitical factors in early February, international crude oil rose strongly, rising nearly 6% in two days. However, the market fundamentals remained weak, investors took profits, and the debt problems of euro zone countries triggered market concerns. The international crude oil market was large. At present, China's imports of raw materials such as yuan coal mainly from Mongolia fell sharply, falling below the $70 integer mark at one time, down nearly 8%. In order to avoid poisoning and loss of data, after that, affected by factors such as the storm hit the eastern part of the United States, the strike of French refineries, the weakness of the dollar and the rise of U.S. stocks, as well as investors' fear that Iran's nuclear program may cause tension, the international crude oil fluctuated upward and broke through the integer level of $80. However, the intertwining of economic data makes the trend of crude oil lack directional guidance. The continuous increase of crude oil inventory and the continuous decrease of refined oil inventory also make the market confused about whether the demand for crude oil really recovers, and the oil price fluctuates and consolidates at a high level. Although the oil price rose sharply at the end of March and early April, the crude oil inventory is still high, the demand has not fully recovered, and the trend of crude oil in the later stage may continue to be high and volatile
