Oil Bubble Still Bursting
Oil prices could fall to between $35 and $40 a barrel by the end of the year, Phil Roberts from Barclays Capital told CNBC. High volatility could cause the price to tank even sooner than that or give short-lived spikes before the big drop, he added.
"We're coming down to an important support level … we're not exactly convinced that that is going to stem the flow, you may get a $5 - $10 bounce off that low," Roberts said.
There is a risk for more downside to come, he added.
