Current trend

On Thursday, the instrument slightly strengthened, despite API and EIA data, reflecting a significant increase in commercial oil reserves in the United States. According to yesterday's report by the Ministry of Energy, oil and petroleum products reserves in the United States rose by 10.27 million barrels over the week, while experts at Bloomberg predicted growth of no more than 3.2 million barrels. Today it is the eighth weekly increase in a row. The data of the Ministry of Energy, as well as the data of the American Petroleum Institute, published the day before, indicate a strong market glut.

Today at 20:00 (GMT+2) the publication of the Baker Hughes report on active oil platforms in the USA is expected. If the drilling activity in the states continues to grow, then WTI will break down the psychological support of 55.00 and continue to decline.
