LONDON (ICIS)--Crude prices fell by more than $1/bbl on Monday to take Brent crude on ICE Futures below $112/bbl on the back of concerns over the eurozone economy which resulted in the euro losing ground to the US dollar.
By 16:15 GMT, February Brent crude had hit a low of $111.80/bbl, a loss of $1.26/bbl from Friday’s close of $113.06/bbl, before recovering to around $111.95/bbl.
At the same time, February NYMEX light sweet crude futures were trading around $100.30/bbl, having hit a low of $100.10/bbl, a loss of $1.46/bbl from the previous close of $101.56/bbl.
