In the context that the covid-19 epidemic is still a hindrance to the prospect of improving energy demand, oil and gas prices today are still under high pressure of reducing.

When the expectation on economic stimulus and support packages is raised, doubts about the ability to absorb economic stimulus and support packages are also growing. Analysts said that after a period of stressing “fighting” with epidemics, the global commodity supply chain was broken, the consumption capacity of the economy was reduced, it would take a long time. element on one is restored.
Second, prolonged epidemics are leading to a wave of corporate bankruptcy on a large scale in many economies. This means that the economic stimulus and support packages, if enacted, will also flow into a number of corporations, large companies or some “big guys” on the stock market … instead of flowing into production sector, and so does not help improve energy demand, including crude oil. This fact makes oil prices continue to be under great pressure on the demand side.
The fact that OPEC + continues to make drastic moves to implement production reduction commitments is not high expectation when oil supply in some regions tends to increase. Meanwhile, the consumption of crude oil of some countries such as the US, China is showing signs of slowing down …
