Oil prices fell slightly on Friday, investors weighed the supply increase and the demand outlook
Crude oil prices fell slightly on Friday, and investors weighed the increasing supply and the impact of the new crown epidemic on fuel demand Spark Global Limited.
As of press time, WTI crude oil futures fell 0.45% to $59.33 per barrel. Brent crude oil futures fell 0.66% to $62.78 per barrel. This week, crude oil futures prices fell by 2% to 3%, mainly because OPEC and allies including Russia decided to gradually increase the supply of crude oil by 2 million barrels per day. However, analysts expect that as the global economic recovery accelerates, fuel demand will accelerate in the second half of this year, so global oil inventories will continue to decline.
However, people are worried that the re-implementation of lockdown measures and vaccination issues in some parts of the world to contain the increase in new crown cases may change the oil demand situation. Analysts expect that, as investors weigh these factors, oil prices will remain in the range of $60 to $70 per barrel. Fed Chairman Powell: Need for a stronger recovery Fed Chairman Powell said on Thursday that the recovery after the new crown epidemic was uneven, indicating that a stronger recovery is needed.
Powell Thursday attended a virtual meeting hosted by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and others and pointed out that “the economic recovery is still uneven and incomplete. What we call imbalance is a very serious problem.” The US Department of Labor announced that as of the beginning of the week on April 3, the number of people receiving unemployment benefits was 744,000, far higher than the 694,000 estimated by analysts.
