Oil prices edged up on Tuesday, lifted by tensions in the Middle East, although rising output in the United States and shaky stock markets put a lid on further gains. Read on as this 20 March WTI Crude Oil Fundamental Forecast gives you more details.
20 March, GKFX – Crude oil took a quick dive in Monday’s trading to follow equities lower as trade war threats continue to hamper market-wide sentiment. WTI fell to 61.34 yesterday, but has steadily recovered and is now holding just above 62.30.
Trade tensions, excess supply keeping oil down
Trump’s tariffs are beginning to spiral out of control, and the impending threat of retaliation from major trading partners is beginning to cast a pallor over risk-based assets including oil, but WTI was bolstered higher following yesterday’s tumble as demand continues to strengthen, as well as ongoing tensions between Saudi Arabia and Iran, with Saudi Arabia reiterating on Friday that they would push to develop nuclear weapons if Iran does so as well.
Oversupply continues to cap oil gains looking into the future, as the US reopened drilling rigs that were closed recently, and the glut of American oil continues to power through the OPEC’s attempt to curb supply in the global markets.
