OIL PRICES DOWN
Oil prices dipped on Tuesday, with Brent set to extend its losing streak to an eighth day, as investors remain concerned about a global glut and mild winter demand that sent prices close to 11-year lows during the previous session.
Brent LCOc1, the global benchmark, was at $37.74 at 0440 GMT, down 18 cents from its last settlement after rising slightly earlier on Tuesday.
The contract on Monday bottomed out at $36.33 a barrel, only a few cents above the $36.20 low last seen during the 2008 financial crisis. Falling below that level would take Brent to prices not seen since the middle of 2004.
