23 Jun, 2022

The sharp fall in the price of crude oil on Wednesday has added to the worries of the traders, whose effect is also visible on the market. Watch our special report to know what will happen next. 

On June 20, shares of Oil and Natural Gas Corporation and Oil India fell, mirroring the sharp drop in global crude oil prices.

Brent crude oil prices fell more than 5% on Friday and have fallen nearly 10% in the last few days due to growing concerns about global demand for the commodity.

Despite persistent supply-side issues, rising bets on a recession in the United States and the European Union over the next 12 months, as well as slowing demand in China, have forced traders to reduce their optimism for the commodity.
