OPEC’s optimistic outlook for oil demand growth helped reverse earlier losses, but uncertainties remain due to economic prospects and warnings from the International Energy Agency and the Energy Information Administration about a potential surplus and an increase in U.S. oil inventories. Upcoming data on crude oil processing in China could further negatively impact sentiment.
