Oil skids on concerns of rising surplus in Q1

Oil prices slid more than 1% on Friday on concerns that a global supply surplus could swell in the first quarter following a coordinated release of crude reserves among major consumers, led by the United States

Brent crude futures extended declines for a third session, 2%, to $80.57 a barrel. U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude was down 2.11%, at $76.34 a barrel. There was no settlement for WTI on Thursday because of Thanksgiving holiday.

U.S. President Joe Biden’s administration announced plans on Tuesday to release millions of barrels of oil from strategic reserves in coordination with other large consuming nations, including China, India and Japan, to try to cool prices.

Such a release is likely to swell supplies in coming months, an OPEC source said, according to the findings of a panel of experts that advises ministers of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC).

The Economic Commission Board (ECB) expects a 400,000 barrels-per-day (bpd) surplus in December, expanding to 2.3 million bpd in January and 3.7 million bpd in February if consumer nations go ahead with the release, the OPEC source said.

Forecasts of rising surplus oil clouds the outlook of the meeting between OPEC and allies, a group known as OPEC+, on Dec. 2 to decide on immediate production. The group is to decide whether it will continue raising output by 400,000 bpd in January.

That’s all about fundamental, let’s see what technical chart is says:

Support is 75.20, if respect this level price could rebound from here at current price of 76.3, If 75.20 taken out, then 72.07 is nearby Target and upward reversal point.

Upside Resistance 78.34, then 81.47
