Oil declined the most in a week with rising US crude stockpiles seen as an obstacle facing a market that is still recovering from a pandemic-induced demand slump.
Futures fell 1.6% to the lowest level in nearly two weeks in New York on Friday. A US government report showed domestic crude inventories increased for the first time since December, rising more than 4 million barrels last week. However, the data also showed refiners processed the most crude since March, an encouraging sign.
Oil slid by the most in three weeks as a stronger dollar and weak US economic data stoked concerns over an economic rebound.
Futures in New York tumbled 2.3% on Friday after a rally in oil earlier in the week pushed the benchmark into overbought territory. The US dollar strengthened, reducing the appeal of commodities priced in the currency. US consumer sentiment cooled more than forecast in January and other economic data such as sluggish retail sales and producer prices also portray the obs
Oil posted the biggest weekly gain since late September as Saudi Arabia's plan to slice output spurred a surge in physical crude buying.
Futures in New York advanced $3.72 this week and Brent oil topped $55 a barrel for the first time since February. Saudi Arabia's pledge earlier this week to cut production by 1 million barrels a day in February and March has made for a tighter supply outlook sooner than anticipated. Meanwhile, prospects for additional stimulus under a Biden administration sp
Oil rose for a seventh straight week as efforts to pass another US virus relief package added to optimism that the vaccine's rollout will provide a long-awaited boost to demand.
Futures rose 1.5% in New York on Friday, extending this week's rally to over 5%.

Oil just managed a weekly gain as an impasse in Washington over pandemic relief dimmed chances of an imminent boost to demand.
Futures in New York eased off a nine-month high alongside a broader market decline as bipartisan talks on another round of US fiscal stimulus stalled. West Texas Intermediate rose less than 1% for the week. A pullback was largely expected after Brent's rally above $50 earlier in the week, with a key technical benchmark settling in overbought territory on Thursday.
Oil rose for a fifth straight week with support from an OPEC+ deal and hopes for another round of US stimulus.
Futures in New York and London closed at fresh nine-month highs on Friday, with signs that momentum is building toward a fiscal stimulus plan that could provide an immediate demand boost, before a vaccine is widely available.

Brent oil edged lower but was on track for a fourth weekly gain -- amid signs of division among OPEC+ members just days before a key policy meeting on whether to extend production curbs.
Futures in London traded near $48 a barrel after falling 1.7% in the previous session. West Texas Intermediate dropped 2% from Wednesday, with prices not closing on Thursday due to the Thanksgiving holiday in the US.

Moderna Inc also released positive interim results from a final-stage trial and said it is close to seeking emergency authorisation. Still, further gains were limited by broader ma
Oil declined for a second session as rising Covid-19 cases threatened to derail demand with tougher restrictions in major US cities on the horizon.
Futures fell 2.4% in New York on Friday, but still posted the largest weekly gain in a month as optimism from news of a potential Covid-19 vaccine breakthrough jolted markets earlier in the week. Despite the measure of hope for the long-term, US cities from the West to East coasts have imposed stricter measures to slow surging case counts, raising
Oil pared its weekly gain as a resurgent pandemic raised the risk of further demand destruction, while the market awaits the outcome of a tightly contested US election.
Futures in New York dropped 4.3% on Friday, the largest one-day decline in more than a week. Increasing expectations over OPEC+ delaying its planned output increase in January and a post-election rally in equities helped crude prices with a strong start to the week. But a string of renewed lockdowns in Europe and record case c
Oil posted its largest monthly drop since March as renewed lockdown measures to contain the coronavirus threatened to upend a shaky demand recovery.

Hargreaves’ FY21 results confirm a period of material profit growth and cash generation. It has been a transformational period, in which all direct coal related activities ceased, HRMS profits surged and net debt was eliminated. As expected, the first 12p additional dividend has been proposed (total FY21 DPS 19.2p) and we expect this to recur for a further three years, at least. As we wrote in our recent detailed note, Hargreaves has been wholly repositioned and now has genuine momentum. The sha

Yesterday’s positive trading update confirmed that recent momentum at HRMS, Hargreaves’ German JV, has continued into the early months of the new year. It is already clear that FY’22 results will be materially ahead of previous expectations (66% PBT upgrade). Moreover, FY’21 results will be even better than anticipated (18% PBT upgrade), reflecting the current strength of commodity market conditions. Our new forecasts prudently assume that these conditions normalise during FY’22 with no lasting
Yet again, Rio managed to maintain its dividend extravagance. Although, besides mighty iron ore, the exceptional H1 results were partly also driven by aluminium and copper – where normalcy is gathering momentum. With key divisions moving in the right direction, and balance sheet flexibility being put to good use, i.e. rewarding shareholders and pursuing growth – this time via a greenfield lithium investment, Rio remains a promising large-cap mining play.
