Insight: Oil is in another bear market - for good reason

Quick Summary AI Powered

WEST Intermediate crude oil futures fell below US$102 (RM450) a barrel Wednesday, which represents a 22% drop over the past two weeks and meeting the technical definition of a bear market.

Does it return to an equilibrium level of US$80 (RM353) a barrel, or does it rocket to US$200, like the macro doom crowd thinks?

Most of the bull case in oil revolves around the twin theses of government incompetence and socially responsible, or environmental, social, and governance (ESG) investing, both of which are restricting drilling and raising the cost of capital for oil producers, thereby reducing supply.
