What will happen?
On Thursday, August 12, during the day members of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) and Joint Ministerial Monitoring Committee (JMMC) will discuss a range of issues regarding energy markets and, most importantly, agree on how much oil they will produce.

- On the contrary, if the price breaks through 2 pivot point level ($67.5), the target will be $60.
