Crude Oil inches higher

With the Suez Canal blockage expected to cause a delay in delivery of fuel, crude oil prices moved higher after having remained volatile for the last few trading sessions. WTI Crude Oil settled at $59.31 per barrel. On the other hand, Brent Crude was trading at $62.62 a barrel. Both Brent and WTI had plunged nearly 4% in the previous session. “There was no specific news behind the sharp drop in oil overnight. The Suez Canal blockage’s transitory nature gave way to general nervousness around rising COVID -19 cases in Europe, India, and Brazil,” said Stephen Innes, Chief Global Market Strategist at Axi.
