Bearish Factors (downwards pressure):

  • Oil prices sliding by 57% this year at time of writing, to their lowest levels in 18 years.
  • 100 million people across Europe put on lockdown, reducing global stocks and the demand.
  • Despite demand continuing to drop, Saudi Arabia and Russia have promised to flood the market with oil as they are in an all-out price war for market share.

Market Report

Gas and Power

Contract prices have decreased this week, weakened by the bearish trading within the markets.

Power demand is low and set to drop further as more businesses work remotely, which will help keep contract prices cheaper.

Gas demand is below seasonal norms and is set to drop further over the next couple of days as the temperatures continue to lift.

As the overall supply and demand outlook remains bearish as the spread of the coronavirus intensifies, contracts continue to trade lower.
