Fundamental: On Wednesday, WTI Crude prices ended 0.4 percent higher to close at 62.0 per barrel after two of Saudi’s Oil tankers were sabotaged off the coast of the UAE which has raised supply concerns amid U.S. sanctions on Iran. Potential supply disruption coupled with supply cuts by OPEC supported the prices. Even the trade tension between US and China showed some signs of easing off as president Trump decided to delay imposing tariffs on imported cars and parts by up to six months avoiding further escalation of trade tension between the two nations. However, unexpected surge in U.S. crude inventory capped the gains for crude. As per reports form the Energy Information Administration (EIA), Crude inventory increased by 5.4 million barrels last week, hitting its highest levels since September 2017.
