    Hovers around $41

    At the time of writing, Brent futures were trading around $41 levels, The EIA weekly inventory figure printed at 9357K, which is well above the estimated number of 2525K. Consequently, oil prices took a hit a low of $40.63 levels.

    The recovery from the session lows goes unexplained; nevertheless, futures remain 1.8% lower on the day.
