CRUDE OIL PRICE FORECAST: BEARISH

  • Crude oil prices drop most in two months amid oversupply concerns
  • Slowing global growth to weigh on demand as US output stays brisk
  • ECB and IMF guidance, Q2 earnings, US GDP may prolong selloff

Get the latest crude oil forecast to see what will drive prices in the third quarter!

Crude oil prices turned sharply lower last week, suffering the largest drop in two months. Building oversupply concerns appear to be the underlying catalyst for weakness as slowing global growth cools uptake expectations while US output continues to register near record highs.

Short-term volatility aside, this has been a driving narrative for some time. The JPMorgan PMI gauge of global economic activity growth peaked in February 2018 and has trended lower since. Not surprisingly, an IEA measure of worldwide crude demand topped along with prices a mere seven months thereafter.

The recent renewal of an OPEC-led supply cut scheme has not noticeably helped. That is not surprising. Prices were likewise unimpressed when the arrangement was previously refreshed in late 2018 and only began a lasting rebound when growing Fed rate cut speculation buoyed broader risk appetite.

CRUDE OIL PRICES AT RISK AS GLOBAL GROWTH OUTLOOK SOURS FURTHER

The week ahead seemingly offers ample fodder for the selloff to continue. The IMF is likely to downgrade its global economic performance forecasts, an ECB policy announcement is expected to set the stage for easing amid the slowdown, and US GDP growth is seen hitting a three-year low in the second quarter.

A steady stream of high-profile corporate earnings releases might add to downside pressure. Bottom-line results have topped forecasts by an average of nearly 5 percent thus far in the second-quarter reporting season, with close to 15 percent of the bellwether S&P 500 in the rearview.

Markets have been more taken with decidedly downbeat forward guidance however. Some of the world’s top firms have warned that the latent effects of past Fed tightening, ongoing trade wars and geopolitical jitters like US-Iran saber-rattling and Brexit uncertainty will translate into business cycle downturn.
