Oil traders are losing a key weekly report on supplies because of the U.S. government shutdown, threatening to reduce market volume and boost volatility.

Traders already lost a separate weekly government report on hedge funds’ holdings of futures and options positions. The EIA stoppage may add uncertainty to the market, potentially discouraging data-driven traders from placing bets and increasing market volatility.

Oil and gas markets may be more volatile as the reports are suspended and traders speculate on changes in supplies, according to Bob Yawger, director of the futures division at Mizuho Securities USA Inc. in New York.

Oh, what a shame.

Yes, many corporations depend upon the government being open to make a profit. Eventually, the GOP will be hearing the screams from these corporations to open the government back up.

Contrary to Oblamer's Chicken Little approach to the govt shutdown & debt ceiling, this may be a good short-term benefit of the govt shutdown. These speculator vultures have been making money at our expense too long so let them suffer for awhile.

I guess those poor, underpaid speculators and hedge fund traders will just have to make do with the weekly reports from Platts and the API when they make their wagers, er, I mean trades.

And when they don't know, they'll assume inventories are low and that will push prices up.

I see another excuse coming for higher prices at the pump. With less data the gamblers aren't going to bet as much. It seems that should help us; not hurt us. They will blame this to raise prices on us.

Government Numbers like Unemployment at 7.3 % (Collecting Unemployment) and another 7% (Not Collecting Unemployment) for a total of 14.3% unemployment and growing numbers on the Not Collecting side. How many lies do you want to hear?
