Oil prices recovered today. As of 2:42 AM EST, the WTI Crude was trading at 30.23 USD/bbl up 1.99% and Brent Crude at 33.53 USD/bbl, which is 1.53% above the previous close.


According to Global Investment Outlook report published by National Bank of Abu Dhabi PJSC yesterday, the WTI crude should trade in a range between $25 a barrel and $45 a barrel for the rest of the year, although a very brief spike down towards $20 is possible.

“For at least the next few years there do appear to be solid fundamental reasons why oil prices are likely to remain in a trading range. Producers have sold less of their crude this year through forward transactions than in past years, and forward-selling would likely accelerate if prices rallied much above $40 a barrel” the bank said.
