Natural Gas and Oil Forecast: Prices Fall Less Than 1%, Downtrend Expected?

FXEmpire.com -

Market Overview

Oil prices declined in early Asian trading on Tuesday, with expectations of sustained U.S. inflation and higher interest rates dampening consumer and industrial demand.

Both benchmarks fell less than 1% on Monday as Federal Reserve officials awaited clearer signs of slowing inflation before considering rate cuts. Analysts noted fears of weaker demand due to delayed rate cuts.

Political uncertainties in Iran and Saudi Arabia had little impact on the market. Investors are now focusing on the upcoming OPEC+ meeting on June 1, which will address output policy and potential extensions of voluntary production cuts.
