On the commodities markets, WTI crude rose more than 1.20% and is trading above $74.00 a barrel, while Brent is trading nearly 1.30% higher around $77.20 a barrel thanks to higher fuel demand and declining US oil stocks. A production disruption in the US Gulf Coast following Hurricane Ida and other storms has led to a sharp decline in US and global inventory levels. An EIA report showed that US crude oil stocks fell by 3.5 million barrels last week to 414 million, their lowest level since October 2018. Elsewhere gold rose 0.40% to $ 1,750.00 / oz, while silver is trading 1.0 % lower, above $ 22.35 / oz. Cryptocurrencies moved lower following Chinese central bank actions however managed to erase some losses in the afternoon. Bitcoin trades slightly below $42,000 while Ethereum trades below $2,900 mark.

Brent (OIL) price rose sharply during today’s session and is approaching major resistance at $78.00 per barrel where July high is located. This level also coincides with the upper limit of the ascending channel. On the other hand, if sellers manage to regain control, then support at $75.00 may be at risk. Source: xStation5
