The rise of oil prices continued due to OPEC reports. The organization of oil producers revised its oil demand forecast for 2015. According to the released data, OPEC expects demand to go up by 1.17 million barrels a day (making it 92.32 million barrels a day) instead of a 1.15 million barrels as was set earlier.

On the Forex market, EUR/USD is holding within the same range.
