LONDON (ICIS news)--NYMEX light sweet crude futures fell more than $3/bbl on Tuesday to take the front month December contract below $60/bbl as concerns about shrinking global demand added to a firmer US Dollar to wipe out the previous day’s gains.
By 15:10 GMT on Tuesday, December NYMEX crude had hit a low of $59.26/bbl, a loss of $3.15/bbl from Monday’s close of $62.41/bbl, before recovering to around $59.85/bbl.
At the same time, December Brent crude on ICE Futures was trading around $56.40/bbl, having hit a low of $55.86/bbl, a loss of $3.22/bbl from the previous close.
