Oil Steadies as Political Risks Mingle With Economic Worries
Thursday, 18 April 2019 18:59 WIB | COMMODITY |MinyakWTIBrent

Oil steadied below $64 a barrel in New York as ongoing threats to supply from political crises were offset by disappointing indicators on the global economy.

West Texas Intermediate futures gained 12 cents, bringing their gain this week to 0.2 percent. A Purchasing Managers™ Index, which measures private-sector activity in the euro area, unexpectedly slid in April, and German factory numbers came in lower than forecast. Still, an escalating crisis in OPEC nation Libya threatens to add to disruptions in Venezuela and Iran at the same time that other members are deliberately restraining production.

Oil has climbed about 40 percent in New York this year as the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries and its allies cut supplies, which have been further squeezed by crises in OPEC members Venezuela and Iran, which are both subject to American sanctions. But the rally has lost steam amid fears about global economic growth, which the International Monetary Fund forecasts will this year be the weakest in a decade.

WTI for May delivery was 22 cents higher at $63.98 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange as of 12:30 p.m. London time. The contract dropped 29 cents to $63.76 on Wednesday after U.S. data showed a gain in total stockpiles of crude and refined products. Both WTI and Brent won™t trade on Friday due to Easter holidays.

Brent for June settlement gained 19 cents to $71.81 a barrel on the London-based ICE Futures Europe exchange. The contract slipped 10 cents to $71.62 on Wednesday and is on track for a 0.4 percent gain for the week. The global benchmark crude was at a premium of $7.73 to WTI for the same month.
