December 04, 2020 14:00

Oil prices are about to close their fifth week of gains, now supported by the agreement between OPEC countries and their partners, including Russia, to gradually increase production from January 2021, expecting global demand to recover, affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.

The price of Brent futures with delivery in February traded this morning with strong increases of just over 2% and, in the middle of the session, it exceeded 49 dollars a barrel, already very close to the February 2020 levels. The WTI also registered increases of around 1% and exceeds 46 dollars, at levels of the beginning of the year.
