Crude Oil Bounce off Support – Supply Cut Looms
Arslan Butt • 1 min read
On Friday, the WTI crude oil prices rose amid expectations of supply cuts from OPEC, although record US production moved. As per US investment bank Jefferies, “The Saudis have already indicated they will reduce output by 500,000 bpd in December, and early indications are that OPEC will target 1+ million bpd of production cuts at the next General Meeting on December 6”. It’s mostly because of abundant supply as EIA reached another record last week at 11.7 million bpd.
