The only limiting factor whose influence disappears, it’s grown to 7.2 million barrels of crude oil inventories in the United States, published on Wednesday, March 3, the us Department of energy. But the farther behind, leaving these data, the more bidders you remember about the General euphoria, which is now present in the financial markets, and bolder is tested for strength the mark of $70 per barrel Brent.
Today, March 5, markets can get an extra dose of optimism. First, it is associated with the completion of the ninth round of trade negotiations between the US and China.
