An Update On The WTI Crude Oil

On Monday, the overall market is facing thin volatility as most of the investors are already out of the market after having major trades on Friday. Consequently, the Oil is also consolidating in a small trading range of $52.22 – $52.60.


Although, we are lacking trading volume, but still the crude oil has made its move higher at $52.56, adding +0.71% for the day. Investors are still concerned about the missile strike by U.S. forces in Syria, boosting the of conflict with Syrian supporters Russia and Iran. You must be thinking why Syria is important to move the oil prices. Well, it's because of the oil reserves. Though it's not at the top of a list, but definitely makes an influence on the Oil prices.
