Sunward Trading分析师Hideshi Matsunaga表示:“在WTI跌破关键支撑位50美元/桶后，投资者出脱了空头头寸，本月早些时候他们曾数次这样做。而利比亚的减产以及欧佩克+进一步减产的预期也为油价提供了支持。”

Oil rises on short-covering, hopes for deeper output cut by OPEC+
Crude prices inched higher on Wednesday as investors covered short positions after three sessions of losses and eyed potential supply cuts.
Brent crude rose 33 cents, or 0.6%, to $55.28 a barrel by 0513 GMT, while U.S. West Texas Intermediate crude gained 41 cents, or 0.8%, to $50.31 a barrel. Still, prices are down nearly 7% since last Thursday’s close.
“Investors unwound short positions after WTI dipped below a key support level of $50, as they have done a few times earlier this month,” said Hideshi Matsunaga, analyst at Sunward Trading.
“The reduction in Libya’s output and expectations for additional production cuts by the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) and OPEC+ are also lending support,” he said.
“A weekly close below $55.00 a barrel on Brent crude will have the alarm bells ringing amongst the OPEC+ grouping,” Jeffrey Halley, senior market analyst at OANDA said in a note.
“Some sort of price stabilization measures is inevitable should Brent crude prices continue falling,” he added.
