Brent Crude Oil Price Reverse Losses, Positive Momentum Alive

Brent crude oil price managed to recover from early losses as the sentiment remains fragile after yesterday’s sharp sell-off. A rising number of coronavirus infection in the USA increase the concerns about another wave of infections that might halt the global recovery. Dismal forecasts from the Fed also weigh in investors sentiment as point that the recovery in the economy will take more time than initially anticipated, and unemployment will take years to return to pre-coronavirus levels.

US crude oil inventories rose by 5.7 million barrels the previous week to a record high at 538.1 million barrels.

OPEC+ countries agreed in April to cut crude oil production by 9.7 million barrels per day, almost 10% of global production output, while reached a fresh agreement to extend the cuts for one month to the end of July.
