The price of crude oil is continuing to hit new lows, dropping to $US117 a barrel in futures trade overnight.
At about 6.30am AEST, West Texas crude was down 59 cents to $US118.58 a barrel.
That helped boost United States stocks, with New York's Dow Jones index adding 40 points to 11,656.
Troubled mortgage finance provider Freddie Mac reported a second quarter loss of just over $US900 million, three times larger than expected.
The Australian dollar slipped further against the United States currency, buying about 90.7 US cents.

Finally, the oil price becomes to reduce.
Extually I felt this Tuesday when I visited a gas station.
The cost already is lower more then 10 cents to compare with last week's price.
But, the oil price still is high.
When I arrived Australia on Jul 2004, that time that price was about 90 cents per liter.
Nowadays almost $1.5 per liter.
