Current trend

Quotes of Brent crude oil have been going down for five weeks in a row. Today, the instrument is consolidating in a narrow price range as part of a downward correction.

Strong pressure on prices was caused by the US decision to allow South Korea, Japan and India to continue purchasing Iranian oil, despite sanctions. An additional factor was the increase in production from the three largest producers — Russia, Saudi Arabia and the United States.

Today, market participants expect the publication of a list of countries exempted from sanctions on the purchase of Iranian oil. If Turkey and China are on the list, the Brent blend could drop to USD 70 per barrel. Tomorrow at 23:30 (GMT+2), API Weekly Crude Oil Stock will be published.
