Crude Oil moves lower
Crude oil prices were down on Wednesday. WTI Crude was down to $57.56 a barrel while Brent Crude price for May was at $60.62 per barrel. News reports claim the prices were volatile owing to blockage in the Suez Canal. “It is perhaps too early to start speculating about the outcome of next week’s OPEC meeting. Still, the weakness in oil this week seems to have validated the cautious view expressed by Saudi Arabia at the last meeting. It increases the probability of yet another rollover of current production levels,” said Stephen Innes, Chief Global Market Strategist at Axi.
