The price of oil rose today, while reaching the highest level in nearly a month, which was supported by strong German data, policies of central banks and tensions in the Middle East.

Add that to affect the dynamics of trade concerns about supply disruptions following the Israeli air strikes on Syria, although the effect of this somewhat weakened.
Economists note that oil and other risk-sensitive assets such as stocks, have been supported by renewed optimism about the global economy, largely due to measures to support from central banks. We remind that the Reserve Bank of Australia cut interest rates by 25 basis points to a record low of 2.75%. On Monday, the head of the European Central Bank (ECB), Mario Draghi said the ECB to cut rates again if need be.
