BofA - Global Energy Weekly: Oil Macro Bulls Battle Micro Bears…

May 23, 2021:  We have long argued oil was capped at $70/bbl in 2021… The combination of easy monetary and fiscal policy, a roaring Chinese economy, and growing global infrastructure spending plans have all conjured up a turbocharged macro outlook for many raw materials from bulks to metals to agriculture in recent months.

Yet Brent crude oil has barely broken $70/bbl a couple of times this year, our target for 2Q21, despite record copper and iron ore prices. The relatively modest recovery in oil is due to two main reasons. First, global oil demand remains at ~95mn b/d for 2Q21 (IEA), or 4% below the ......read more
