Based on analytical reviews, volatility will continue to persist in commodity markets, especially in oil markets, in 2019. Oil prices are projected to rise slightly in the near future and will average about $70.0 per barrel, compared with $71.0 in 2018. At the same time, the risks to oil and other commodity prices are mainly reduced, given the slowdown in demand growth and increased supply. Despite volatility, prices are expected to be slightly different from their current indicators by the end of 2019.
