Oil prices were weighed down at the start of the week by weak economic data from China. At the weekend, the official purchasing managers’ index for industry fell below the growth limit of 50 points. On Monday, the corresponding indicator from the business magazine Caixin disappointed expectations. China is one of the largest oil consuming countries in the world.

Oil prices are still at a high level, but have recently struggled with the search for direction. During the course of the day, prices usually fluctuate greatly, which can also be attributed to major uncertainties. Supply has been tight for a long time because of the Ukraine war, while demand is being weighed down by fears of a recession.
