U.S. crude got two jolts this morning to go as high as $US110.33.
The first was the weak jobs report, which signaled more sluggishness in the economy but also, at least according to some pundits, a possible extension of the Fed’s bond-buying program.
Then Russian President Vladimir Putin said he was ready to help Syria’s Bashar Al-Assad defend against any U.S. attack.
So we got this chart:
Brent’s also up 0.63% to $US116.00.
