- Oil prices plunged on Friday as OPEC and its allies failed to reach an agreement on production cuts.
- “Crude has become a bigger problem for markets than the coronavirus. It will be virtually impossible for the SPX to sustainably bounce if Brent continues to crater,” Vital Knowledge founder Adam Crisafulli said Sunday.
- Morgan Stanley forecasts Brent falling to $35 per barrel in the second quarter, with WTI trading as low as $30 per barrel. The firm’s prior forecast had Brent at $57.50 and WTI at $52.50.
