Oil to Plummet on Fears

(Houston)

Oil is looking likely to fall sharply, and not just because the world's economy is looking soft. According to the IEA, oil supply is likely to dwarf demand next year, which will very likely lead to lower prices. Many new projects will come online, boosting oil supply far more than demand, which may only grow slightly, or even shrink if the economy heads downward. This will put more pressure on OPEC.

FINSUM : Nothing is looking bullish about oil other than geopolitical tensions (the effects of which tend to blow over quickly).
