Oil Falls Amid Uncertainty Over Trade War and OPEC Supply Cuts
Friday, 8 November 2019 19:50 WIB | COMMODITY |MinyakWTIBrent

Oil fell as traders awaited more concrete signs that the U.S. and China are resolving their trade dispute, and amid concerns that OPEC and its partners won™t deepen output curbs to prevent a glut.

Futures lost as much as 1.9% in New York. The U.S. and China have agreed to roll back tariffs on each other™s goods in phases as they work toward a deal, giving some relief to the outlook for oil demand. Yet American crude inventories jumped last week, and delegates from the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries and its allies say the group™s biggest producers aren™t pushing for further intervention to clear up a global excess.

Oil has fallen almost 15% since hitting this year™s peak in April as the trade spat sapped crude consumption and global supplies expanded. OPEC and its partners will likely keep output steady when they meet next month as markets are on track to re-balance, according to Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and Trafigura Group Ltd.

WTI for December delivery declined 94 cents to $56.21 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange as of 11:02 a.m. London time. The contract rose 80 cents to $57.15 on Thursday.

Brent for January settlement fell 93 cents, or 1.5%, to $61.36 a barrel on the London-based ICE Futures Europe Exchange. The contract is down 0.5% this week. The global benchmark crude traded at a premium of $5.07 to WTI.
