WTI Crude Oil   

Fundamental Analysis:   

Oil prices rose more than 1% Monday 9th January 2023 after the reopening of borders in Asia boosted the outlook for fuel demand and overshadowed global recession fears.  

Monday’s recovery in oil prices comes as the U.S. Energy Department tries to buy back oil at favorable prices to replenish the Strategic Petroleum Reserve to attract producers.  

On Friday, reports emerged that the Energy Department rejected the first bids, citing a disadvantage to taxpayers. Replenishing the Strategic Petroleum Reserve will become increasingly difficult if oil prices continue to climb. The U.S. Strategic Petroleum Reserve has reached its lowest level since 1984.
