On the global oil market, the price of November futures for the North Sea petroleum mix of mark Brent Crude Oil lowered by $0.32, down to $108.32 a barrel. The price of light WTI oil futures dropped by $0.47, down to $102.66 a barrel.

On the world’s Forex market, the uncertainty with the US budget won’t allow the dollar to go up. At the same time, there are no favorable macroeconomic factors for the euro to advance either.
