WTI up on positive sentiment, EIA
Prices of the barrel of the American benchmark for the sweet light crude oil are advancing since Monday and keep the trade just below earlier 3-year peaks in the $66.40 region.
WTI has posted gains in six over the last seven weeks and has already advanced almost 58% since 2017 lows in the $42.00 neighborhood seen in June.
A broad-based optimism on the rebalancing of the oil market since the implementation of the output cut deal has been underpinning the sharp recovery in prices pari passu with a generalized depreciation of the greenback and an almost permanent decline in US crude oil supplies, as per weekly reports by the EIA.
Ahead of the week, the only release of note will be the usual report on US oil rig count by driller Baker Hughes on Friday.
