Oil Prices Dips Ahead of Powell Speech
Friday, 23 August 2019 19:18 WIB | ENERGY |Minyak WTIMinyak MentahMinyak Brent

Oil prices traded slightly lower on Friday as markets prepped for a speech from Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell at the Jackson Hole Economic Symposium.

New York-traded West Texas Intermediate crude futures slipped just 2 cents, nearly unchanged on a percentage basis, to $55.33 a barrel by 7:44 AM ET (11:44 GMT), while Brent crude futures, the benchmark for oil prices outside the U.S., fell 12 cents, or 0.2%, to $59.80.

The speech at 10:00 AM ET (14:00 GMT) is expected to provide clues on whether the U.S. central bank will cut interest rates for a second time this year to boost the world's largest economy.

Oil markets are keen on economic stimulus to support demand for crude which has been falling amid the global slowdown.
