Oil prices keep under 70 USD
Oil prices were about at a standstill this morning. The effects of the American interest rate changes and the restriction of the Chinese financial politics are still visible at the global market. The Central Bank of the second oil importing country of the world, China, has increased the earmarked funds requirements of the commercial banks in order to narrow crediting and to avoid economy running hot. The prices are getting higher also for the American government threatening Iran with UN economic sanctions if they continue with their Nuclear programs.
