Oil prices edge higher as details over Saudi supply cuts emerge

Oil prices rose on Wednesday, after reports of Saudi supply cuts to Asia. It should be also noted however, that gains were capped by a lack of detail about the reductions and because of signs of rising supplies from other producers. Indicatively U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures were last seen trading at $51.19 a barrel, up 33 cents or 0.7 percent while Brent oil futures added 38 cents to last trade at $54.02 as of 9:20 GMT. Analysts warn that there are still plenty of signs that global supplies are ample. Many observers also are still in doubt about whether planned cuts will go deep enough to rebalance a market.

The sterling also weakened ahead of the Bank of England Governor Mark Carney’s testimony due later within the day. Financial markets appear to be very cautious as the euphoria over Trump’s perceived pro-growth policies fades. Indicatively, in today’s European session, Germany’s DAX has lost 0.2 percent at 11557.00, U.K.’s FTSE 100 was last seen trading flat at 7275.50, France’s CAC 40 dipped 0.4 percent at 4866.80 while the Euro Stoxx 50 was last seen trading 0.4 percent lower at 3295.50.
