Crude is steady as OPEC cuts counter ascending American supplies

On Thursday, crude markets didn’t change because soaring American crude output as well as inventories were countered by hopes that OPEC will extend an everlasting output cut during a gathering at the end of this month.

Brent crude futures LCOc1 hit $61.98 a barrel, just 11 cents above their previous close.

American West Texas Intermediate crude futures reached $55.37 a barrel, gaining 4 cents from their last settlement.

Crude definitely shrugged off a sudden ascend in the American crude inventory data, and both contracts eked out minor revenues, as senior market analyst at futures brokerage OANDA in Singapore, Jeffrey Halley explained.

Notwithstanding these slight revenues, WTI and Brent have lost approximately 4% in value since reaching 2015 maximums the previous week, suppressed partly by soaring crude availability in the US.

American crude inventories edged up for a second week in a row versus experts’ expectations in a Reuters survey for a tumble of 2.2 million barrels.
