Crude Oil rates
Crude oil prices slipped nearly 1.50% last week and WTI slipped below $90 per barrel on a weekly closing basis amid strong gains in the dollar index and global recession fears.
The dollar index surged and reached six week highs amid aggressive interest rate hike plans of the U.S. Federal Reserve. Strength in the dollar index and the U.S. bond yields pushed oil prices lower. Crude oil also plunged amid downbeat economic data from China, EU and UK.
The US-Iran nuclear deal talks also pushed oil prices lower last week.
However, record exports by the United States and a surprise decline in the oil inventories by more than 7 million barrels supported prices at lower levels.
Crude oil prices also hold their support levels after OPEC+ said it will cut output from September if prices remain lower due to weak global oil demand.
