Analysis and Recommendations:

Crude Oil held fairly steady in today's session trading at 89.10. As investors looked forward to tomorrow's FOMC statement and the possibility of monetary stimulus from the US Fed.

 Markets are also eying the Chinese manufacturing PMI slated for release tomorrow for cues on demand from the top consumer of metals.  Crude oil was swinging between positive and negative territories as investors looked out for central bank’s action to support the flagging economic growth. Nymex crude oil held above $89 a barrel and was on its course to post its first monthly gain in three months. Meanwhile, EIA is likely to report a decline in crude oil inventories in its weekly inventory report scheduled for release tomorrow.
