Oil prices also went down due to reports that Iraq, second-biggest OPEC oil producer in the world, was lowering its oil costs for Asian and European deliveries. On the NYMEX, the price of the WTI oil future for November went down by $0.08 and stopped at $85.74 a barrel. On London’s ICE, the price of November Brent oil futures dropped by $1.32 and closed at $88.89 a barrel.

On the global Forex market, EUR/USD is experiencing a further correction.
