Current trend

The price of Brent crude oil has been falling over three trading sessions in a row. The price remains under pressure as results of the meeting of Venezuelan and Saudi Arabian oil ministers were quite disappointing. They failed to reach any agreement during Sunday’s meeting, and volumes of oil production remained unchanged. Moreover, the timing of a possible emergency OPEC meeting, requested by Nigeria and Venezuela, was not confirmed.
