Here are the 5 main price movements since the beginning of the Ukrainian war:

  1. Since the day Russia invaded Ukraine on February 24; Brent crude oil prices have risen 11 percent, despite deeper volatility and the risk of price action in the near term more skewed upwards.

  2. February 24 – March 8: Crude oil prices rise, with Brent hitting its highest level since 2008 near $ 140 a barrel. March 7: Brent hits $ 139 a barrel, the highest price since the 2008 financial crisis.

  3. March 9-16: Oil prices begin to fall from the peak closing price on March 8, after the United Arab Emirates backed up supply increases and emerged reports on U.S.-Iran talks and support sentiment.

  4. March 15: Brent crude oil price closes below $ 100 for the first time since the war began-on hopes of Ukraine-Russia peace talks, increased supply from other oil producers and concerns of declining demand from China over the COVID-19 outbreak.

  5. March 17-18: Oil prices began to rise again, soaring above $ 100 a barrel and closing at about $ 108 on Friday, March 18th. Despite the bounce, the benchmark contract ended the week about 4 percent lower on Friday, after trading in the $ 16 range for the week. Uncertainty is forecast to continue into the coming weeks driven by news flows about peace talks between Russia and Ukraine.
