    FXStreet (Mumbai) - Brent futures fell to a fresh 6-1/2 year low in the US session as OPEC’s reluctance to change its strategy opened doors for the oil bears to flex their muscles.

    Brent Jan futures took out the previous 2015 low of USD 42.22/barrel seen in August and fell to USD 41.78/barrel; its lowest since March 2009.

    It remains to be seen if the prices see a daily close below the previous cyclical low of USD 42.22 (August low) or witness a strong rebound to close the week higher on Friday.
