The outlook remains challenging for crude oil prices as stalling demand becomes an increasing concern.

OPEC Meeting to Garner Attention

On top of that, oil supply has picked up as OPEC+ have continued to ease production cuts as planned, whereby production has increased by as much as 1.5mbpd since June. In turn, as Brent crude futures meander around the $40/bbl mark, continued to selling may see OPEC+ look to enact deeper production cuts. As a reminder, the OPEC+ JMMC is scheduled to meet on September 17th, as such, OPEC noise will likely increase in the run up to the meeting, thus heightening headline risk for the oil complex.
