Crude Oil price climbs

Crude oil prices moved higher once again on Wednesday. US WTI crude breached the $60 mark to trade at $60.46 per barrel, up 0.5%. Brent crude futures gained 0.4% to sit at $63.95 per barrel, according to Reuters. “Crude prices continued to drift higher most of the EU and NY sessions, reacting to the buoyant macro-outlook. However, momentum is still capped by new vaccine health concerns as the Adenoviral vector vaccine may have a problem and the continuing lockdown effects as traders await clear evidence of rising global demand,” said Stephen Innes, Chief Global Market Strategist at Axi.
