Oil plunged several percent on Thursday. They say, the bullish rally was just too aggressive. Let's trade the dip then!
Will the oil prices rise?
The organization of the petroleum exporting countries (OPEC) and non-OPEC oil producers (Russia) will meet on July 1-2. The press conference of OPEC members is scheduled at 18:00 MT time on Monday, while the final joint press conference of all producers is expected on Tuesday at 14:00 MT time. The countries will decide on the extension of the ongoing production cuts. As the cuts failed to curb the oversupply in the first half of the year, it would be interesting to look at the next steps by OPEC+, especially by Russia and Saudi Arabia. Will the countries succeed in making the oil prices higher?
• If OPEC+ extends the production cuts, the oil prices will go up;
• If OPEC+ fails to extend the production cuts, the oil prices will go down.
