Oil Prices Set for Weekly Gain as Middle East Tensions Outweigh Economic Concerns
Friday, 26 July 2019 19:12 WIB | COMMODITY |MinyakWTIBrent

Oil prices were on track for weekly gains as Middle East tensions supported prices while traders waited for the latest reading on U.S. economic growth amid hopes that central banks would tackle any weakness.

New York-traded West Texas Intermediate crude futures gained 40 cents, or 0.7%, to $56.42 a barrel by 7:42 AM ET (11:42 GMT), while Brent crude futures, the benchmark for oil prices outside the U.S., rose 34 cents, or 0.5%, to $63.73.

U.S crude was on track for weekly gains of 1.2%, while Brent was up 2.0% from a week ago.

Tensions remain escalated in the Strait of Hormuz, a key gateway for global oil shipping, in the aftermath of Iran™s seizure of a British-flagged tanker last week. Tehran has still refused to release the vessel.

Oil has been supported by the potential threat of military action that could impact supply.

Concerns over a global slowdown that could negatively impact demand for oil have limited gains in crude.

The U.S. will release the advanced reading of second-quarter gross domestic product at 8:30 AM ET (12:30 GMT) amid expectations that growth will drop to its slowest pace in more than two years.
