- Oil prices accelerate rise as OPEC+ calls off output talks
The U.S. dollar and other majors were mostly steady as investors wait on the minutes from the Federal Reserve’s meeting in June when it surprised markets with a hawkish shift. They are due to be published on Wednesday.
The euro held at $1.1860, more or less where it left off Friday and the yen rose a tad to 110.86 per dollar. Sterling nudged higher after Britain set plans to end COVID-19 restrictions in a fortnight, and last bought $1.3857.
The New Zealand dollar rose on Tuesday after a strong business survey pulled forward rate hike expectations there to as soon November, while its Australian counterpart crept higher ahead of its own crucial central bank policy meeting later in the day.
Most Asian share markets opened a fraction higher on Tuesday, ahead of a key decision by Australia’s central bank on its quantitative easing programme and despite ongoing concerns over the future regulation of China’s powerful technology sector.
MSCI’s broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan was up 0.05%. In Hong Kong, the Hang Seng Index was down 0.7% while China’s CSI300 was off by nearly 0.3%. Japan’s Nikkei was up 0.45% while the S&P ASX200 stood 0.21% higher. In South Korea, the Kospi 200 Index rose 0.5% in early trade.
Mainland Chinese stocks, on the other hand, declined. The Shanghai composite slipped 0.27% while the Shenzhen component dipped 0.222%.
Oil prices rose on Tuesday, driven higher after OPEC+ nations called off talks on output levels, meaning no deal to boost production has been agreed.
Brent was up 94 cents, or 1.2%, at $77.11 a barrel by , trading around 2-1/2 year highs. U.S. oil gained $1.11, or 1.5%, to $76.27 a barrel. OPEC+ ministers abandoned the talks and set no new date to resume them, after clashing last week when the United Arab Emirates rebuffed a proposed eight-month extension to output curbs.
