Oil falls below $97 per barrel as ample supplies weigh on US crude prices

Associated Press -- The price of oil slipped back below $97 a barrel Tuesday after a sharp rise the day before as supply remains ample and demand tepid.

Benchmark oil for March delivery was down 13 cents to $96.90 at midday Bangkok time in electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange. The contract on Monday gained $1.31 to finish at $97.03 a barrel on the Nymex as the euro strengthened against the dollar.

A strong euro tends to result in higher oil prices by making crude priced in dollars cheaper for traders using currencies other than the greenback.

They get the quick profits whenever they want it and then it takes weeks before the price returns and we suffer the whole time.

over the years I read articles about why the market MOVED any direction that day. The reasons are usually chosen from a small handful of choices. When will a journalist write before the trading day underway what they think the market will do in the coming trading session?
