Oil prices remain under pressure due to deadly coronavirus spread reports. Over the past day, new cases of virus infection have been reported in 15 countries. In total, the virus was confirmed in almost 4.5 cases with 107 lethalities. Investors fear that a deadly virus epidemic could seriously harm the world's second largest economy. This will have a negative impact on energy demand.
According to S&P Global Platts, OPEC countries are discussing ways to stabilize the market in the event of further spread of the virus and lower oil prices. Both an extension of the current agreement and a reduction in production quotas are being considered.
In the coming days, investors should follow the publication of weekly industry reports in the United States. Today the API data will be presented. On Wednesday, the US Department of Energy report will be released.
