CME: Morning Crude Oil Market Report for Tuesday July 3rd

August crude oil prices traded sharply higher during the initial morning hours, supported by hopes for more global central bank intervention to stimulate growth and better than expected Chinese service sector data overnight. Other crude specific fundamentals supporting the morning gain come from the ongoing oil workers strike in Norway that has reduced North Sea output and a growing fear premium in the market in response to reports that Iranian lawmakers have drafted a bill to cut oil tanker traffic in the Straits of Hormuz. Expectations for this week's delayed EIA crude stocks report are for a draw in the range of 2.25 to 2.5 million barrels.
