HOUSTON (ICIS)--NYMEX WTI crude futures ended higher on Tuesday as geopolitical concerns brewed in the Middle East.
January NYMEX WTI established the day’s low-to-high range at $96.55-98.70/bbl early, before it settled at $98.01/bbl, up by $1.09/bbl from Monday.
The increase comes as concerns over Iran’s nuclear programme re-emerged, after the country dismissed energy and financial sanctions from the US, England and Canada.
Traders also kept close watch on political developments in Egypt and Syria.
