Brent “does not believe” OPEC+

December 4, 2023

By RoboForex Analytical Department

Brent oil prices fell to 78.30 USD per barrel on Monday.

Despite OPEC+ decisions at the November meeting, oil prices are falling. The issue is that the actual parameters of OPEC+ quotas turned out to be lower than investors expected. This does not cancel out the Cartel’s powerful support on prices. However, the market cannot cope with emotional reactions.

Escalating tensions in the Middle East observed last weekend may bolster the oil quotes. The factor of a strong US dollar is working oppositely. While the USD is rising, commodity assets appear less attractive to buyers.
