Global oil prices went down to the lowest level in two years due to an increase of oil production by OPEC countries.

On London’s ICE, the price of Brent oil futures for November delivery went down by $1.33 and closed at $90.05 a barrel.

On the Forex market, EUR/USD is lacking activity. The pair can start a prolonged correction in case there are no significant macroeconomic events.
