WTI Crude Oil Prices Flashing Green as OPEC Hints at Deeper Cuts

WTI crude oil prices surged as OPEC indicates a deeper cut in stockpiles, and investors expect the potential Brexit deal between Britain and the Europan Union. However, gains were limited due to constant concerns of a global economic recession.
Meanwhile, news of a blast at Saudi Arabia’s Sasref refinery was cited as a tailwind for crude oil prices. The reason behind the explosion was a gas leak, but this renewed worries over supply disruptions after the September 14 attack on the kingdom’s massive Abqaiq oil processing facility that temporarily knocked out half of daily world crude production.
China now wants the United States to reduce tariffs before singing the purchase of $50 billion of American agriculture products under the phase one trade deal touted by US President Donald Trump.
China warned the United States over its interference in its internal matters and also gave a warning against the United States policy.
