As the weekend looms Oil markets remains vigilant again- check out Brent Crude this morning

The warnings surrounding an imminent Iranian attack on Isreal are keeping the oil markets on edge today. At the same time, there are also risks that such will not take place and that leads the oil markets to a rather uncertain future in the short term. On the one hand, if it does happen then oil prices could spike, but on the other, if it does not, prices could drop back next Monday. Of course, as the weekend looms it is the first of those possibilities that is leading the way. Yesterday Oil prices fell back and that saw Brent crude drop to around $89.40. It later settled $0.74 lower on the NYMEX exchange, at $89.74. However, as you can see right now, Brent is pushing higher this morning and of course that is all due to weekend risks, when the markets are closed. We have seen this dynamic a few times on a Friday recently and today looks like no exception. Brent crude for June delivery has risen to $90.56 earlier today. It is right now trading at $90.45
