Oil pared early gains after the Energy Information Administration reported that crude inventories unexpectedly rose 1.6 million barrels, gasoline inventories fell 600,000 barrels, and distillates fell 500,000 barrels.
The U.S. dollar index initially rose and treasuries fell on better than expected jobs data that sent the Dow, Nasdaq, and S&P higher throughout the morning, but all of those moves completely reversed after minutes from the fed’s last meeting raised caution about the state of the markets.
