"Commercial tensions and general fears of the market Pressioram oil today," said Bill Baruch, president of Blue Line futures.
The indices of U.S. stock sank into a wide settlement, because of the escalation of trade tensions between the US and China.
Losses in American oil prices were limited by the likelihood that an outage of 360,000 bpd in Syncrude unit in Canada continued during the month of July. The interruption should limit the oil that comes to Cushing's, Oklahoma, the delivery point for future U.S. contracts. Source: G1, globe.
