Oil market hit by renewed global demand-side fears

Oil prices corrected sharply lower on Tuesday, April 20, with Brent sliding 1.4% to $65.72/bbl, and WTI shed 1.8% to $62.3/bbl.

Reports of the next wave of the Covid-19 pandemic, which subsided somewhat in April, are back on the agenda due a resurgence of coronavirus in India. The oil market is again concerned about global demand, as India, along with China, is one of the world's largest oil importers.
