Iran and the G6 didn’t hold a press conference to announce the conclusion of an agreement. This will probably take place after the UN resolution. The text of the agreement has been handed to the UN today and the Security Council will look over it next week. For the meanwhile, the market is full of rumours that oil is trading in a sideways trend. Over the course of the day, support for quotes will come from positive statistics from China, according to which the country’s GDP in Q2 rose by 7% YOY.
Brent will trade $58-59 per barrel throughout the day, whilst WTI will be trading $52-53.50.
