Brent Oil Rises: Is Reliance on Stock Market Demand Working?

Published 06/18/2024, 05:22 AM
The commodity market was adjusted moderately on Tuesday morning after the price of Brent crude oil rose by 2% the day before. A barrel of the North Sea variety is at about 84 USD.
The main support factor currently is the improving prospects for global demand. Additionally, there are expectations that global oil producers will restrain supply.
The latest oil market reports from OPEC+, the International Energy Agency and the US Department of Energy suggest a steady increase in energy demand in the second half of 2024.
Yesterday's surge in Brent's price was also supported by an increase in the value of the entire range of risky assets. This is due to reduced inflationary pressures in the world's largest economies. Such signals strengthen the bet on lowering the cost of lending in the coming months.
The proposal is underpinned by the collaborative efforts of key OPEC+ member countries, including Russia and Iraq, which have confirmed their intentions to adhere to the agreed production quotas. Saudi Arabia has also expressed its readiness to adjust production volumes to fully account for market conditions.
