WTI analysis – 13 April 2020

By: Ahura Chalki

WTI started a week with a light positive reaction to the news that OPEC plus agreed to cut the supply by 9.7 Mbd. However, outlook still is not that bright which has to be. While IEA has been confirmed of 30% lower demand in the market on its latest report, current agreement cutting the supply for $10, while almost all main storages around the globe are full already, so this reduction cannot convince the investors and traders that still we will have any balance between the demand and supply. Oversupply in the market still will keep the pressure on the prices.

What I can see at the moment is that only positive headlines from coronavirus can help the market to recover a bit, if Germany, Italy and Spain, as their governors told at the weekend, start to reopen some parts of industries, otherwise, the market will be weaker.
