Meanwhile, crude oil prices fell on Wednesday as industry data showed a bigger-than-expected inventory build in the US where coronavirus cases continue to climb, potentially further denting demand in the world's biggest oil consumer. Brent crude fell 32 cents, or 0.7 per cent, to $44 a barrel by 0156 GMT, and U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude dropped 33 cents, or 0.8 per cent, to $41.59, Reuters data showed. Oil prices rose on Tuesday on optimism for a COVID-19 vaccine and after EU nations agreed on a 750 billion-euro ($859 billion) fund to prop up coronavirus-hit economies.
