OIL

West Texas Intermediate (WTI) oil prices have declined for the second session in a row, standing near $78.20 per barrel, despite OPEC+ countries, including Russia, extending voluntary cuts amounting to 2.2 million barrels per day to support prices. Geopolitically, ceasefire talks in Gaza facilitated by Hamas and Egyptian mediators continue without Israeli participation, amid demands for a hostage list from Hamas. Meanwhile, the Houthi authority in Yemen has imposed new maritime entry regulations. Concurrently, China aims to rejuvenate its economy post-COVID-19 by transforming its development model and addressing overcapacity, targeting a 5% growth rate for 2024 to potentially boost crude oil consumption and stabilize prices.
