Crude oil prices had a session of decline because of economic recession.

This week, US stock indexes received a boost from positive information on inflation. The consumer price index (CPI) in July was flat compared to January, mainly thanks to lower gasoline prices. Producer Price Index (PPI) unexpectedly fell. Data released on Friday continued to show that the price of goods imported into the US fell more than expected.

The series of positive data on inflation has bolstered investor confidence, leading them to begin to believe that the recent uptrend in the market is more than an ordinary bear market rally. market rally), which could be the start of a more sustainable rally.

Even so, traders are still betting on the Fed’s softening. Interest rate futures are reflecting a 55.5% chance of the Fed raising rates by 0.5 percentage points at the September meeting, instead of the 0.75 percentage point rate seen at the July meeting.

Brent crude oil futures in London fell $1.45/barrel, or 1.5%, to $98.15/barrel. WTI oil futures in New York fell $2.25/barrel, or 2.4%, to $92.09/barrel. Previously, prices of both oils rose more than 2% in Thursday’s session. Oil prices fell due to concerns that an economic recession would occur and drag down energy demand. The forecast that oil supply disruptions in the Gulf of Mexico will not last long also put downward pressure on oil prices this session.

However, the depreciating dollar and the expectation that the Fed will delay the rate hike has helped crude oil have a bullish week. Brent is up 3.5% and WTI is up 3.7% for the week.

On Thursday, Shell said it was suspending production at three deepwater oil rigs in the Gulf of Mexico. These rigs have a production capacity of 410,000 bpd. On Friday, authorities said that the damaged part of the rig would be fixed by the end of the day.

This week, the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) lowered its forecast for global oil demand in 2022, but the International Energy Agency (IEA) increased its forecast. The market is more or less torn between these conflicting forecasts.

“We are seeing an economic deceleration, but it is not clear at this time if it will be a sharp deceleration like some recent forecasts have made. Oil demand may fall, but supply is still a concern,” said Saxo Bank strategist Ole Hansen.

The European Union’s (EU) sanctions on Russian oil will continue to tighten in the near future, while the US and other developed countries are about to complete a coordinated release of strategic oil reserves. This means that the supply in the global oil market will face many downward pressures in the near future.
