The markets have reemerged from the risks and now waiting to get positive information related to the US Sino trade talks during the G20 meeting. One of the key factors having a strong impact on crude is the decline in demand.

A weaker dollar against major currencies also created a support line for it and other macroeconomic factors were supporting the rates.
