WTI looks to EIA report
Prices of the WTI remain unable to resume the previous upside, as sentiment among traders stay subdued in response to the increasing US oil production and the recent pick up in US oil rig count, which rose by 12 to 759 US active oil rigs during last week, as per the latest report by driller Baker Hughes.
Adding to the selling mood, the American Petroleum Institute (API) reported late on Tuesday an increase of nearly 3.2 million barrels during last week, more than initially estimated.
In the meantime, prices of the WTI are declining for the third session in a row, already shedding more than 4% since last week’s tops beyond the $66.00 mark.
Ahead in the session, the EIA will publish its weekly report on US crude oil stockpiles ahead of the FOMC meeting.
