Crude Closes Near Three-Year High as Focus Remains on Iran Deal - Bloomberg

Crude Closes Near Three-Year High as Focus Remains on Iran Deal - Bloomberg:

"Crude settled near a three-year high as investors gauged the potential of a U.S. exit from the Iran nuclear deal.


Futures ended the session 0.2 percent higher, closing above $68 a barrel for a third time this week. French President Emmanuel Macron’s prediction that the U.S. will pull out of the Iran nuclear accord stoked concerns about a renewal of sanctions that would slash crude exports from OPEC’s third-largest producer. U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said Thursday that there’s been no decision on the nuclear deal.
