A producer meeting is to be held in Doha on Sunday and just before that crude oil prices struggled on Thursday as a result of uncertainty that is predicted after the meeting which is to be held by major producers. This weakened the commodity demand and creates flutter as the meeting is fast approaching.

  Crude oil is in great demand all over the world and major oil suppliers like Saudi Arabia, Russia and many other countries are going to meet in Qatar in the city of Doha. This is to have a chat about the oil price and to discuss on cutting down their supply to support the dipping oil price. Still there are reservations in the market doubting if they will end up in a strong agreement which will support the oil price. This led to the battling of prices on Thursday. 
  There was a statement by the International Energy Agency after a close monitoring of the market which stated that “If there is to be a production freeze, rather than a cut, the impact on physical oil supplies will be limited” 
  Brent crude on London’s ICE Future exchange dipped by $0.06 and closed at $44.11 for a barrel, while in New York Mercantile Exchange, the light sweet crude traded at $41.71 for a barrel. It dipped by $0.05 in the Globex electronic session. Sweet crude which is for delivery in May and Brent Crude in June managed to cut down their earlier losses. 
  The discussion about the stop meeting has kept financial specialists anxious as of late. Costs have mobilized by more than a third however the rally has been business sector by high instability in the midst of the absence of clarity about what can be concurred in Doha. Iran has as of now hesitated from taking an interest in any arrangement as the nation tries to expand its production to pre-sanctions levels.
  Analysts at JBC Energy Consultancy stated “On balance, we see the likelihood of a strongly-worded, formalized output freeze agreement between all participants—perhaps except Iran—as very slim. The key will be to find a wording that keeps the flame burning…and allows meeting participants to save face. It is highly unlikely to have a meaningful impact on the path of the actual physical oil supply, whatever is the outcome of the meeting."
  But as per Michael Poulsen, analyst at Global Risk Management, this meeting itself is a good signal for the market stating that there is going to be an important outcome. 
  Underscoring the proceeding with oversupply, U.S. unrefined inventories developed by more-than-anticipated 6.6 million a week ago, the Energy Information Administration said on Wednesday. The most recent expansion conveyed business stockpiles to another high of more than 536 million barrels. Be that as it may, generation fell underneath 9 million barrels a day surprisingly since September 2014.
  Nymex reformulated gas blendstock — the benchmark fuel contract — fell 1% to $1.51 a gallon. ICE gasoil changed hands at $372 a metric ton, down $5 from the past settlement.
