Oil prices fall on signs of rising supplies, ebbing confidence on global economy
Thursday, 1 November 2018 08:42 WIB | ENERGY |MinyakWTIBrentOil,

Oil prices fell early on Thursday, extending losses in previous sessions, amid signs of rising supply and growing concerns that demand might weaken on the prospect of a global economic slowdown.

The Brent crude January futures contract lost 44 cents, or 0.32 percent, to trade at $74.72 per barrel by GMT 0054 GMT. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures fell 46 cents to $65.01 a barrel.

Both benchmarks posted their worst monthly performance since July 2016 on Wednesday, with Brent falling 8.8 percent for the month and WTI dropping 10.9 percent.

Thursday™s drops came after U.S. Energy Information Administration data showed crude oil inventories climbed for a sixth straight week.

Meanwhile a Reuters survey found the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) boosted oil production in October to its highest since 2016, as higher output led by the UAE and Libya more than offset a cut in Iranian shipments due to U.S. sanctions, set to start on Nov. 4.
