CME Group’s preliminary readings for Crude Oil futures markets noted traders increased their open interest positions for the fourth session in a row on Wednesday, this time by more than 39K contracts, the largest single day build so far this year. On the other hand, volume extended the erratic performance and went down by around 421.5K contracts.
