In light of OPEC announcements about a possible decrease of oil production in 2015, oil prices started to climb up – the NYMEX price of WTI oil futures for October went up by $1.96 at once making $94.88 a barrel while the London ICE saw the October Brent oil future go up by $1.17 and reach $99.05 a barrel.

On the Forex market, there’re no new developments with EUR/USD so far.
