What is the outlook for Brent crude oil volatility throughout July?

Brent crude oil volatility: July outlook

Dated Brent-ICE Brent crude oil futures volatility premium analysis for June shows that Brent’s implied volatility was completely unresponsive and did not react at all to the downtrend that dragged prices down and that the current divergence between Brent realized and implied volatilities remains very low.

Analyst Vito Turitto sees the inverted leverage effect and the ongoing contraction process in the Brent crude oil market as factors likely to increase volatility, with the outlook for Brent prices negative over the coming weeks.
