Crude inches down over doubts recent jump will last through fourth quarter

Crude inches down over doubts recent jump will last through fourth quarter

On Wednesday, crude slumped over caution that a price ascend, which kept unrolling for most of the third quarter wouldn’t manage to extend through the last three months of 2017.

American West Texas Intermediate crude futures CLc1 hit $50.05 a barrel, sliding 0.7% from their previous close.

Brent crude futures LCOc1 lost 0.6% being worth $55.65 a barrel.

Market participants told that the sag came over worries that a third-quarter market soar that had raised Brent to mid-2015 maximums by late September had been totally overdone.

Market experts told that market rebalancing is currently underway, and it means that demand isn’t undershooting available supply any longer.

The re-balancing appears to be an outcome of strong consumption. As for other causes one should mention efforts made by OPEC to reduce output by nearly 1.8 million barrels a day this year and the first quarter of 2018.
