The Energy Market Recap: 10 October 2011

Nov Crude Oil traded sharply higher on the session, reaching its best level since September 21st, helped by a fall in the USD and a rally in Global equity markets.

It looked like a positive response from Sunday's meeting between French and German leaders to deal with the European debt crisis went a long way to boost risk appetites.

Some traders pointed to a possible rebound in US economic growth as another factor supporting demand for Crude Oil.

A sharp sell off in the USD, down to its lowest level since September 21st, is also seen as a factor inspiring a risk-on attitude.

It is also possible that the Crude Oil market drafted support on reports that a union strike in Kuwait shut down Oil tanker traffic into local ports.
