    Crude Oil Firms After API Reports Surprise Draw

    Adding to the dollar’s weakness was the consolidation of Treasury yields. After yields surged to multi-year highs last week, the rise in yields has subsided, reducing demand for the dollar. Gold improved on Tuesday, but the market posted an inside move, which typically indicates investor indecision and impending volatility. Traders said the gains were related to short-covering. New longs appeared to be scarce since the rally in the equity markets forced them to re-evaluate their reasons for being long. U.S. West Texas Intermediate and international-benchmark Brent crude oil futures settled higher on Tuesday after the American Petroleum Institute reported a surprise crude oil draw.
