Oil Markets On Edge As ‘’Second Wave’’ Looms

  • Oil traders are giving OPEC+ the benefit of the doubt this week as prices soar to 3-month highs

This is helping to reduce the fear of another major oversupply situation that drove prices sharply lower from March to May. Furthermore, bullish investors are also increasing bets that OPEC+ compliance will improve in the coming months.
