Since it dropped on Monday, the price of Brent crude oil is trading in a narrow range between $56.50 and $57.50 per barrel.
The fall was a result of the number of factors, namely: oversupplied markets, Greek crisis, world stock markets fall, investors running into safe-haven currencies (the Yen, USD, Frank), output increase by OPEC countries, probable increase of Iranian exports, and (possibly) coming up new world financial crisis.
The Fed yesterday was cautious about promised interest rates hikes this year, which is now even more uncertain.
