Oil Pares Slump as China Tariff Delay Follows Signs of Iran Thaw
Thursday, 12 September 2019 08:31 WIB | ENERGY |Minyak WTIMinyak MentahMinyak Brent

Donald Trump is stirring up the oil market again as a move to delay the next tariff increase on China pushed prices higher hours after they collapsed on signs he's prepared to ease sanctions against top producer Iran.

Futures added as much as 0.9% in New York after falling 2.9% on Wednesday, the biggest drop in four weeks. Trump said he was postponing the imposition of extra tariffs on Chinese goods by two weeks, offering a glimmer of hope for global demand. The U.S. President discussed moderating penalties on Iran at the Oval Office on Monday to help secure a meeting with his counterpart Hassan Rouhani later this month, according to three people familiar with the matter.

West Texas Intermediate crude for October delivery rose 51 cents to $56.26 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange as of 9:05 a.m. in Singapore. The contract fell $1.65 to $55.75 on Wednesday, the lowest since Sept. 3.

Brent for November settlement gained 46 cents, or 0.8%, to $61.27 a barrel on the ICE Futures Europe Exchange. The contract decreased $1.57 to $60.81 on Wednesday. The global benchmark traded at a $5.10 premium to WTI for the same month.
