Current trend

Today, oil prices are falling amid growing reserves of "black gold" in the United States.

According to the Ministry of Energy, US commercial energy reserves rose by 2.8 million barrels in a week, which surprised investors, as analysts forecasted a decline by 2.2 million barrels. In general, the situation in the oil market can be described as moderately negative. OPEC + efforts to cut production, as well as US sanctions against Iran and Venezuela, prevent the instrument from falling. However, the uncertainty caused by fears of a global recession has a negative effect on demand.

Tomorrow at 19:00 (GMT+2), Baker Hughes will publish statistics on active rigs in the United States. Reducing the production volumes will allow the instrument to strengthen above the psychological level of 68.00.
