The OPEC+ Decision Was A Clear Disappointment

The OPEC+ Decision Was A Clear Disappointment: Tyler Richey Quoted in Morningstar

Oil prices stretch loss to a 4th session in a row to settle at lowest since July

“The OPEC+ decision was a clear disappointment last week due to both the underwhelming amount of additional [oil] output curbs and the voluntary nature of the 2024 policy cuts,” said Tyler Richey, co-editor at Sevens Report Research.

“The market didn’t buy it, however, as the bears are pressing OPEC+ for more clarity on the long-term outlook for policy plans and reassurance that the group is willing to do ‘whatever it takes’ to keep oil near or above $80/barrel,” Richey told MarketWatch on Tuesday.

“Looking ahead, the price action in oil has become increasingly heavy, and if there is not some sort of positive or bullish market catalyst ahead, we are likely to see a test of the 2023 lows in the $67/barrel area” for WTI, analysts at Sevens Report Research wrote in a Tuesday note.
