Rally of Crude Oil Loses Steam

April 14, 2016 at 23:11 by Vladimir Vyun

Futures for crude oil fell today, leading to speculations that the commodity’s rally is losing steam. While major oil countries are going to meet this weekend for discussion Obstacle Bounce House of output freeze, analysts are skeptical about their ability to reach an agreement. Adding to oil’s woes, the International Energy Agency said that the freeze would not impact the supply glut to any noticeable degree. As for production cuts, it looks like such a deal remains a distant prospect, if possible at all. With all the negative fundamentals, many traders turned bearish on oil.

    As far as I remember, you can subscribe to such data feeds on Interactive Brokers, but it is not cheap and IB’s minimum account size is $10,000, so it is probably not worth it if you are not planning to trade with them.
