Yesterday, crude oil price reached a high of 59.55. In the American and Asian session, the XBRUSD pair dropped and tested a low of 57.95.
27 August 2019, OctaFX – The price of crude oil declined yesterday after Donald Trump said he was ready to meet with the President of Iran, Hassan Rouhani, in a deal likely to be brokered by Emmanuel Macron. In an interview, Macron said that he would work with both the Iranians and the US to replace the faltering deal that will incorporate the views made by the Trump administration. \
Macron also talked to Iran’s Rouhani, who said he was open to meeting with the Americans. Trump said that in case a deal was reached, the JCPOA signatories would be ready to provide financing to Iran, which has seen its economy weaken after the Trump administration started the maximum pressure campaign. Later today, the American Petroleum Institute (API) will release the inventory data of the coming week.
