- 21st April 2020 – Oil prices dip below zero as producers forced to pay to dispose of excess
It’s been a rough year so far for crude oil, even after coming into 2020 trade with a quick spike of strength on the back of increasing tensions between the US and Iran. After a quick flicker above the 65-handle, it’s pretty much been a one-way-show with prices continuing to sell-off for much of the time since. And today – a new low was set; as in a new multi-decade low as prices spilled down to $0.01/barrel.
How low can you go? At $0.01 per barrel, US is in for a long ride. It is very likely that the price dipped to critical levels leading to mass margin calls and account stops.
