WTI now down by 1.32% on the day

Shale worries continue to creep in every time oil prices move higher, and the market is suddenly feeling a little better about Middle East tensions in Syria. The market is taking the strikes as a "one and done" deal, and though the equities market is a little more cautious, the oil market is responding quite favourably.
