As reported in the Wall Street Journal in March 2016, a number of hedge funds have turned bullish on oil. The growing opinion among financial managers was that a global crude oil oversupply dynamic was turning the corner. At the time of the Wall Street Journal article, the price of oil hovered just under $35 a barrel, and it was expected to stabilize at around $40.

By late May, this prediction had borne fruit, with the global Brent benchmark trading at over $48 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange. This sharp rise reflected a surge in oil futures related to supply issues in Canada and Africa, coupled with US production declines.
