FXStreet (Edinburgh) - Crude oil prices have managed to revert the initial negative start and they’re now advancing beyond the $47.00 mark per barrel. WTI shrugged off IEA’s warning Prices for the WTI keep its march north today, recovering from the earlier drop in response to the IEA’s report stating that the global supply glut could stay longer than previously estimated. In addition, poor trade balance figures from the Chinese economy have been weighing on sentiment since early trade, somehow capping the upside. Ahead in the week, traders will remain vigilant on the events in the Middle East, as well as the EIA weekly report on crude inventories and the US oil rig count from driller Baker Hughes on Friday.
