Brent Crude – How Low Can it Go? (Video)

Brent and WTI crude have been on a slippery slope since OPEC and non-OPEC officials announced a deal to extend production cuts by another nine months.

In this video, Senior Market Analyst Craig Erlam discusses the cuts, explains why he believes the market may have found a temporary bottom and why data over the last 24 hours may have assisted in this.
