TFA Energy Morning Highlights – 5/26/2023  

via Brynne Kelly

Oil prices were broadly stable overnight, as the market weighed in on conflicting messages on supply from Russia and Saudi Arabia ahead of the next OPEC+ policy meeting, a stronger U.S. dollar and worries of weaker-than-expected demand growth.

The higher dollar, which has strengthened for a fifth session against a basket of major peers, with U.S. data pointing to a resilient economy even after an aggressive interest rate hike cycle by the Federal Reserve, kept a lid on upward price movement.

Worries of weaker-than-expected demand growth globally weighed on investor outlook.

"There are multiple signs that global demand growth is unlikely to come close to earlier year forecasts. China, which constitutes about half of most estimates, looks increasingly unlikely to reach anyone's estimates for 2023," Citigroup (NYSE:C) said in a client note.

Today’s July WTI Pivot Level = $72.39
