- Oil settles up after hitting 15-month highs on demand prospects
The dollar clung to small gains from overnight on Wednesday, edging back from near a five-month trough versus major peers, as a pick up in U.S. manufacturing kept bets alive for a quicker normalisation of Federal Reserve policy.
The dollar index, which measures the greenback against six rivals, hovered just below 90 after dipping to as low as 89.662 on Tuesday and approaching the lowest since Jan. 7 at 89.533.
Likewise, the euro traded at $1.2222 after pulling back from near a multi-month top overnight, when it climbed to $1.22545. Sterling also remained lower at $1.4160 after easing off a three-year high of $1.4250 reached Tuesday
Shares in Asia-Pacific were mixed in Wednesday morning trade, with official data showing higher-than-expected growth in Australia’s economy for the first quarter. Australia’s gross domestic product rose 1.8% from last quarter on a seasonally adjusted basis in the first three months of the year.
The Nikkei 225 in Japan gained 0.22% while the Topix index climbed 0.67%. In South Korea, the Kospi rose 0.25%. Hong Kong’s Hang Seng index shed 0.36%. Mainland Chinese stocks also declined as the Shanghai composite fell slightly and the Shenzhen component dipped 0.217%. Meanwhile, Australian stocks advanced, with the S&P/ASX 200 up 0.7%.
Oil prices settled higher on Tuesday, with Brent hitting above $71 and trading at its highest since March, on expectations for growing fuel demand during the summer driving season in the United States as OPEC+ agreed to boost output.
Brent crude futures for August settled up 93 cents, or 1.3%, to $70.25 a barrel after hitting $71 earlier in the session – its highest intra-day price since March 8. U.S. West Texas Intermediate crude for July was up $1.40, or 2.1%, to $67.72.
