Brent crude futures gained 0.1% to sit at $63.27 per barrel, according to Reuters. “Positioning is much cleaner, although the market remains directionally long oil. However, the sudden calm and drop in volatility have attracted passive investors back to the fray as the market structure around prompt spreads start to tighten and the dollar begins to roll over,” said Stephen Innes, Chief Global Market Strategist at Axi.
