Can OPEC send the Oil above $60, ahead of New Year’s eve?
Monday, the first trading day after OPEC+ meeting, WTI was struggling to save the gains and prepare for the next direction after more than $4 weekly gain of the past week. Now the news from trade talks, today’s API and tomorrow’s EIA reports will make the changes. Crude Oil even can test the $70 area, if phase one of trade talks could not be signed by the end of the week, or sharp decline in the EIA reports. For now, the market news is positive for WTI and support the price to hold above $58, at least.
