Oil prices plunges 71% to more than 3-decade low, crashing to below zero for the time ever!

The oil prices have plunged to a more than three-decade low on Monday, crashing to below zero for the time ever

The losses in oil prices came amid falling demand due to the coronavirus pandemic, which is offsetting historic production cuts.

As being reported, WTI crude oil fell as much as 71% to $5.32 a barrel, while Brent slid 7.4% to $26 a barrel at intrasession lows.

There is little to prevent the physical market from the further acute downside path over the near term,” said Michael Tran, managing director of global energy strategy at RBC Capital Markets. “Refiners are rejecting barrels at a historic pace and with U.S. storage levels sprinting to the brim, market forces will inflict further pain until either we hit rock bottom, or COVID clears, whichever comes first, but it looks like the former.”
