Current trend

On Friday oil quotes are correcting after recent growth to the level of 58.32 but still remain on quite high levels. The fall of oil prices is supported by the news about the beginning of repair works at Forties pipeline in the North Sea near the UK shore. The operation of the pipeline is likely to restore around Christmas which is faster than was previously expected.

Today market players are waiting for the report by Baker Hughes on active oil platforms in the USA (21:00 GMT+2). In general, market activity before the holiday is expected to be low.
