WTI oil prices rose 2.1 percent on Wednesday to close at D61.6 per barrel with buying spurred by a sixth day of unrest in OPEC member Iran and strong economic data from the United States and Germany. Germany's unemployment rate hit a record low in December, underpinning a broad - based economic upswing. U.S. factory activity increased more than expected in December, a further sign of strong economic momentum. Manufacturing and construction reports also fuelled expectations for a robust U.S. economy in 2018.
