WTI Сrude Oil: general analysis

Sorting by categories


Current trend

Yesterday, the price of "black gold" declined due to growth forecast for oil production in the United States for 2019.

The US Department of Energy predicts an increase in shale oil production next year of 0.3 million barrels per day. In the second half of 2019, a loosing of transport restrictions in the Permian basin is planned, which will lead to a significant increase in production and export. In addition, on Wednesday, the instrument was under pressure from the API report, which reflected an increase by 9.75 million barrels a week. After Hurricane Michael, activity in the Gulf of Mexico declined, which kept oil prices from further falling. Experts consider the idle time to be short, and the share of production insignificant, so investors expect the resumption of price decrease before the end of this week.
