It seems they are mostly dodging the crisis that started there.  I find hope in that because it means it can be contained, even if we seem to be blowing it.

Measures in China were drastic. Cant happen that in Democracy (people pleasing is the first thing politicians do). It was actually a lockdown. Lockdown in U.S.A is a jock. Its just killing small businesses(sad) and hurting the poor.

I sold some oil last week after the run up. Still a net buyer. will buy more on pullback.

I agree Eric. While I believe it was well intended, at least initially, the systematic destruction of small business was enormous, and still continues. We will be a very long time fully recovering. The picking and choosing which part of our economy to rescue seems somewhat random. Our version of a lockdown is indeed a joke. I believe vaccines and the natural immunity caused by this surge will save oil. It may take a little longer than the market seems to believe.

They are probably tired of making money.  They'll sell sand instead.  Smile   

It is an interesting turn of events.

I'm not convinced that this cut is voluntary. 

Saudi's have had rig count and spending cuts just like everyone else, and may not be able to produce what they claim. Rig count has been cut in half since Q1 of 2020, and oil production has dropped by ~1.5 MMbpd already. Wouldn't it be likely that production drops another similar amount over the next 12 months? 

   

They save face by announcing a "surprise" million barrel per day cut, impact the crude price by doing so, and then hide the fact they can't produce as much as previously touted.

Still bullish here...

That would certainly be good news for frackers that can wind it up fairly fast. Is this why OXY is up so much?

Why production would drop by same amount over next 12 months? Market is speculating for economies to open up then the demand should go up.

Still cut means Saudis see further drop in demand? Why? Unless your theory is right that they are not able to ramp up quickly which. I really doubt is the case.
