Current trend

The price of Brent crude oil continues falling while trading at its 11-year lows.

The price remains under pressure amid significant excess of supply on the market as major oil-producing countries try to compensate a reduction in profits by increasing exporting volumes. Furthermore, amid increasing exports demand for oil is falling due to slowing Chinese economy. In addition, the price is pressured by strengthening US Dollar as all transactions are processed in Dollars.

Therefore, growth in prices is unlikely until the Chinese economy recovers or the USD weakens. However, considering some overbought in the USD, an upward correction in oil prices can be expected.
