Oil gains after strong U.S. retail sales help ease recession worries
Friday, 16 August 2019 08:28 WIB | ENERGY |MinyakWTIBrentMinyak MentahOil,Crude Oil

Crude oil prices rose on Friday after two days of declines, buoyed following data showing a rise in U.S. retail sales helped ease some concerns about a recession in the world's biggest economy.

Brent crude was up 31 cents, or 0.5%, at $58.54 a barrel at 00:47 GMT, after falling 2.1% on Thursday and 3% the previous day.

U.S. WTI crude was up 43 cents, or 0.8%, at $54.90 a barrel, having fallen 1.4% the previous session and 3.3% on Wednesday.

U.S. retail sales rose 0.7% in July as consumers bought a range of goods even as they cut back on motor vehicle purchases, according to data that came a day after a key part of the U.S. Treasury yield curve inverted for the first time since June 2007 prompting a sell-off in stocks and crude oil.

An inverted Treasury yield curve is historically a reliable predictor of looming recessions.
