LONG USOIL: OPEC MONTHLY REPORT: BREXIT, DEMAND > SUPPLY IN 2017

FX:USOIL   Crude Oil (WTI)
- IMO             key take aways from the report was the highlighting of brexit as a downside risk and readjusting global growth as a result - despite the UK being only 4% of world GDP.
Nonetheless OPEC went on to stress that oil             supply side is likely to abate over the next year with demand excess reducing supply stocks - this is likely going to see an increased price in oil             over the medium term.
Non- OPEC supply is expected to fall both in 2016 and 2017, whilst demand they expect to stand still in 2017 at 1.2 million B/D growth - the same as 2016's forecast.

- Further, I expect upside in the near term based on risk-on money flows into oil             are likely to take hold, as safe havens take a rest and risk assets rally ( oil             in the past 2 years can be considered relatively risky).
We also see the Oil             futures market trading contango, with July 17 contracts trading significantly above spot at 51.45.

OPEC's analysis in mind, the contango futures structure and the near-term risk-on markets ($ weakness) oil             is a buy with a $49 target for WTI in the near term.
