Brent crude futures were trading at $70.66 per barrel on Friday, while, U.S. West Texas Intermediate futures were at $68.35 a barrel, according to Reuters. Last week WTI crude oil rates saw the biggest weekly decline in nine months. 

“Concerns as countries implement restrictive measures to curb their latest COVID-19 outbreaks continue to cloud the fuel demand outlook. However, the ongoing tensions in the Middle East between Iran and Israel helped cap the black liquid’s losses,” said Rohan Patil, Technical Analyst, Bonanza Portfolio.
