Crude oil prices were under pressure after Mario Draghi magic seemed too eased off. Oh, sure, after Mario Draghi said he was disappointed with growth and the lack of inflation, oil got a bounce. Yet, when Asian and European stocks gave up the gains, oil prices falter until a headline came out about those Chinese Military ships that are moving off of the coast of Alaska.
Crude oil prices are proving to be resilient after wiping out a 2% loss to close over 2% higher. Not even a reported 4.7 million increase in crude supply and reports that President Obama has the votes to overcome a veto on his deal to lift sanction on Iran was not enough to keep this market down.
