Early morning pressure in June heating oil prices seemed to come from a sluggish outside market tone and heat-related demand readings from the National Weather Service. The Midwest distillate market drafted support Friday on reports of a refinery outage in Ohio, and that was seen as a force limiting losses in the heating oil market. Data earlier this morning from the National Weather Service estimated heat-related demand for heating oil in the coming week to average more than 40% below normal. The Commitments of Traders Futures and Options report as of April 24th showed non-commercial traders were net long 18,778 contracts, a decrease of 1,324. Non-commercial and nonreportable traders combined held a net long position of 35,885 contracts, down 1,091 during the repot window.
