Current trend

Today, Brent Crude continued to decline amid US readiness to provide sanctions relief for consumers of Iranian oil.

The US authorities are forced to make adjustments to the strategy on the Iranian issue in the run-up to mid-term congressional elections. The high price of oil does not suit Donald Trump, so the presidential administration is considering the possibility of individual relaxation. In addition, the United States is actively using its strategic partner, Saudi Arabia, to put pressure on the hydrocarbon market. Earlier, Saudi Minister of Energy, Industry and Mineral Resources, Khalid al-Falih, made a number of statements according to which his country could increase oil production in November, as it has the necessary capacities for this.

Today, trading on the market is limited on the occasion of Columbus Day celebrations. Tomorrow (at 22:30 GMT+2), API will publish data on the weekly change in reserves of commercial oil in the US. Given the drop in drilling activity, reserves may decline, but now a political factor is a key issue for pricing.
