Brent Crude Oil: general review

Sorting by categories


Current trend

Today, the price of Brent crude oil continues to grow, reaching a maximum value since mid-November.

The instrument was supported by a reduction in US stocks. According to yesterday's EIA report, the stock of major petroleum products declined over the week by 3.86 million barrels, while analysts had forecast growth of 2.66 million barrels. Last Tuesday, API published its weekly report, which also reflected the reduction in stocks. Additional market support is provided by OPEC actions aimed at reducing production, as well as US sanctions against Venezuela and Iran.

Tomorrow at 20:00 (GMT+2) Baker Hughes will publish statistics on active drilling rigs in the USA. Reducing drilling volumes will allow the instrument to update local maxima. However, interest in risk in all markets is formed amid events in the UK. Yesterday, Parliament rejected the Brexit without a deal with the EU. Today at 22:00 (GMT+2), a vote will be held on the postponement of Brexit. Investors believe that the delay will have a positive impact on the hydrocarbon market.
