Crude sits close to half-year minimums
On Friday, crude prices kept to six-month minimums, held down by an everlasting supply overhang, persisting notwithstanding an OPEC-led effort to reduce output and also prop up crude markets.
Brent crude futures hit $46.97 a barrel, moderately higher than their previous settlement.
American West Texas Intermediate crude futures gained too, demonstrating $44.48 per barrel.
However, prices for both benchmarks have lost approximately 13% since late May, when producers led by the OPEC dared to extend a promise to reduce output by nearly 1.8 million barrels a day until the end of the first quarter of next year.
Soaring American crude output, especially from shale drillers, is actually contributing to the overall ineffectiveness of the OPEC-led drops.
Besides this, high exports as well as production from Russia are adding to the everlasting glut too.
Russia is supposed to export up to 61.2 million tons of crude via pipelines during the third quarter versus 60.5 million tons in the second quarter.
The Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries will hold a meeting on June 2.
This week started with the talk of the United States banning Russian oil exports, so XBR/USD saw $130 a barrel. Then the ban became reality. What does it really mean for the market?
Main news that will drive the market in the upcoming week include CB Consumer Confidence Index, Canadian GDP, and US Core PCE Price Index
The Federal Reserve (Fed) will announce its Interest Rate Decision and make a statement about the future monetary policy on Wednesday, September 21, GMT+3. After the higher-than-expected inflation numbers published on September 13, there’s almost no doubt the Federal Reserve will come up with another 75-basis-point rate hike. However, surprised by the CPI numbers, several Fed members announced the possibility of a 100-basis-point rate hike on Wednesday.
Every week we expect many interesting events that can shake the market.
