Business Week reported that oil was steady amid speculation that the European Central Bank may alleviate the region’s sovereign debt crisis.

The market news is quoted as saying:

“There’s some talk that the European policy makers are putting together some new measures to ease the region’s debt crisis and that’s making the markets a little more stable,” said Tom Bentz, a broker with BNP Paribas Commodity Futures Inc. in New York. “The markets are still worried about the whole economic picture and a Greek default.”

The reintroduction of 12-month loans to banks will be discussed at the ECB’s Oct. 6 policy meeting, according to the central bank official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the information is confidential. Interest-rate cuts are likely to be discussed, though they are not on the current agenda, the official said.
