Oil prices continues to push 10 month highs

Oil futures hit their highest levels in a year as expectations of a supply deficit continued to send prices to nearly $95 a barrel on Tuesday.

U.S. West Texas Intermediate crude gained more than 1% and hit $92.43, its highest level since Nov. 4, while Brent crude futures reached $94.77, its highest level since Nov. 16 when it traded as high as $94.79.

Prices have risen for three consecutive weeks, and Reuters reports that prices are on track for their biggest quarterly increases since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in the first quarter of 2022.

Earlier this month, Saudi Arabia and Russia extended a combined supply cut of 1.3 million barrels per day to the end of the year.

The Federal Reserve is done hiking this year, even if the dot plot that’s set to release this week shows one more increase, according to Goldman Sachs. 

“On November, we think that further labor market rebalancing, better news on inflation, and the likely upcoming Q4 growth pothole will convince more participants that the FOMC can forgo a final hike this year, as we think it ultimately will,” the firm’s chief economist Jan Hatzius wrote on Saturday. 

“But we expect the dot plot to show a narrow 10-9 majority still penciling in one more hike, if only to preserve flexibility for now,” he added.

The dot plot shows where individual members expect to see rates trending over the next several years. The Fed concludes its two-day policy meeting Wednesday.
