Omicron worries about hitting oil prices

Investor sentiment will remain cautious after the World Health Organization warned on Tuesday that the new Covid omicron variant is spreading faster than any previous one, and that the variant may exist in most countries in the world.

At the same time, after the International Energy Agency stated that next year’s oil demand would be lower than expected, oil prices fell and were hit by the new omicron variant.

Vivek Dhar, Head of Commodity Research for Mining and Energy at Commonwealth Bank of Australia, said: “The International Energy Agency (IEA) stated that the oil market has returned to surplus this month, and this surplus will deepen early next year, and oil prices will fall overnight.

He wrote in a report on Wednesday: “The organization’s forecast is based on weakening demand related to the omicron variant of COVID-19, as well as increased oil production from OPEC+, the United States, Canada, and Brazil.”

Crude oil prices continued to fall during the Asian session. US crude oil fell 0.48% to US$70.4 per barrel.
