Fundamental Brent analysis for January 5, 2021

On Tuesday afternoon, world oil prices shifted to growth amid expectations of an OPEC+ decision to further cut oil production in February. The current quotation of the asset is $52.05 per barrel.

The meeting of all OPEC+ countries was supposed to end yesterday, but the participants in the meeting failed to reach an agreement on the volume of reductions next month, and the debate will continue today. The meeting participants are discussing two proposals: to increase production in February by 500 thousand bpd or to keep production at the January level. Russia and Kazakhstan are in favor of increasing production by 0.5 million bpd from February, while the rest of the countries are in favor of extending production at current levels.

Oil prices are also supported by continued optimism related to the recovery in demand. The start of coronavirus vaccination in many countries gives hope for the early lifting of restrictions on movement, which, in turn, will contribute to the growth of demand for raw materials.

However, despite vaccinations, the world today is still seeing an increase in the incidence of Covid-19, which suggests that in the short term, the increase in demand will still slow down.
