Crude Oil Tumbles to Year Low as Iran Exports Oil to Private Buyers

Recalling the fact that back on November 5, the United States applied sanctions on Iran’s oil exports in response to their nuclear programs, WTI crude oil market gained bullish momentum on the news as Iran is the third biggest producer of OPEC.

But the recent stats are adding further bearish momentum in oil, especially after Iran’s oil minister was quoted as saying that “the private buyers of Iranian crude have had ‘no problems’ exporting it”, despite US sanctions targeting Iran’s oil exports.

For the moment, crude oil is on hold near $42.85 and it can rise towards $44.45. The violation of $42.35 can cause further sell-off until $40.55.

Good luck!
