U.S yields plunge giving Euro the chance to reach a 6 day high

Euro ascended to its highest point in about a week on Thursday as U.S. Treasury dropped, ending its two year high streak and with the dollar subsiding further late in the day on news that U.S. president Donald Trump was favoring Jerome Powell as the succeeding chair of the Federal Reserve.

Powell is expected to favor lower interest rates for the U.S., decreasing the value of dollar to investors.

Euro EUR= climbed to $1.1858, the highest since last Friday. Euro was reported to be higher before the news was released, having recovered from the losses earlier in the week.

The euro momentarily dwindled against the dollar following the release of U.S. jobless claims data.

Oil Prices draw higher on indications of tightening market

On Friday, oil markets edged up recuperating some of the previous day’s losses. Analysts emphasized signs of a tightening market.

Brent Crude futures LCOc1 were at $57.31 at 00:27 GMT, up by 0.1 percent or 8 cents following their last close.

U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures CLc1 were at $51.41 a barrel up by 0.2 percent or 12 cents.

The faintly higher prices came following the falls in the previous session, which market watchers explained as profit taking following four straight days of gains.

U.S. commercial crude oil stocks fell 15 percent from their March records, to 456.5 million barrels.

Part of this decline has been due to increasing exports as the result of the steep discount of WTI vs. crude Brent.

U.S. crude oil shipments have climbed from practically zero to about 2.6 million (BPD)  barrels per day in October.
