Energy Commodities Price Outlook

Q4 2018 prices broadly stable on doubts about current rally

Prices for Brent and WTI crude oil rallied in recent weeks on the back of resilient global growth, which is boosting demand, and signs that the oil cut deal could be extended well into 2018. That said, the Met the why particular Consensus Forecast for the energy market was upgraded only slightly this month as fundamentals for a sustained recovery in prices remain weak. Any sharp rise in oil prices should be offset by higher demand from shale producers, particularly in the United States. Moreover, most participants in the oil cut accord are still facing considerable economic imbalances and could therefore be tempted to deviate from the deal.

In Q4 2018, the Met the why particular energy price index is seen averaging 96.3, which is slightly above last month’s 96.2 and would represent a 3.3% increase from the expected 93.2 in Q4 2017. The revision reflects higher forecasts for three commodities, including WTI crude oil. However, the price projections for uranium were downgraded, while five commodities saw unchanged forecasts.
