Just wondering what makes you think oil is recovering? So far, I still see oversupplied all the way without any clue of balancing. Whenever OPEC reduces production, Russia and shale oil increase their production. Furthermore, we see more and more large scale new oil fields been discovered and ready for production as long as market allows it. On the other hand, other form of energy continues to decrease costs and increase production efficiency. In long term, I really don't see how oil could recover. Perhaps, any recovery could be just short term re-balancing.
