Non-OPEC supply is expected to rise 2.20 million barrels per day, down from 2.25 million in OPEC’s September report. OPEC also trimmed forecasts for global demand growth this year.
WTI crude oil also gained support on the sentiment that the United States and China could reach a positive outcome during this week. They are avoiding any kind of further increase in trade tensions. High-level negotiators from the two sides are currently meeting in Washington.
Moreover, the White House stated that the trade talks going unexpectedly well. However, more positive headlines regarding trade increased the chances of a currency deal this week. President Donald Trump also commented that the trade talks with China are going well.
