“The drone attack does not alter the weak fundamentals facing the oil market. Global economic growth has slowed down and will continue slowing as a result of the US protectionist stance and its trade wars with China, Europe, Canada and Mexico,” said Nasser Saidi, president and founder of Nasser Saidi & Associates.
“We are seeing a sharp drop in trade volumes and values and in investment and PMI [purchasing manager’s index]. The result is lower demand for oil and oil prices. Unless there is a major military confrontation in the [Arabian] Gulf that could lead to extended supply interruptions, we should not expect an impact on oil prices,” he said.
