Oil prices edged lower on Monday as data showed Saudi Arabian exports fell to the lowest in five months despite record output, while a resurgence in U.S. drilling activity seen earlier this month seemed to fizzle out. Both international and U.S. crude futures posted their third consecutive weekly losses last week on expectations of increased exports from Iran following a deal to ease sanctions against the OPEC producer. Brent September crude was 14 cents lower at $56.96 a barrel by 0708 GMT. The benchmark fell nearly 3 percent last week and more than 10 percent for the month. U.S. crude futures, also known as West Texas Intermediate (WTI), were down 7 cents at $50.82 on Monday, after falling more than 3 percent last week and more than 14 percent in July. The August contract expires on Tuesday. Saudi Arabia's crude oil exports fell in May to their lowest since December, with official data showing daily shipments stood at 6.935 million barrels a day (bpd) compared with 7.737 million bpd in April.

The U.S dollar held firm in Asia on Monday as investors looked ahead to higher interest rates from the Federal Reserve, while gold slumped to five-year lows as a lack of global inflation left little to hedge against. The precious metal XAU= ran into a wave of selling in Asia that drove it down almost 4 percent at one stage to as deep as $1,088.05 an ounce. It was last at $1,107.70. "It looks like someone was taking advantage of the low liquidity environment at the moment. It's a bit of speculative selling going on," said Victor Thianpiriya, analyst at ANZ Bank in Singapore. Nearly 900,000 lots were traded on a key contract XAU9999=SGEX on the Shanghai Gold Exchange, compared to less than 27,000 lots on Friday, Reuters data showed. Prior to Monday, volume for July had averaged less than 30,000 lots. Activity was light elsewhere with Japan on holiday and a dearth of major data in the diary, leading to a cautious session for stocks in Asia. Financial spreadbetters expected European bourses to open with gains of 0.1 to 0.2 percent. More»

Crude futures fell from 2015 peaks in choppy trading on Friday, but Brent's 9.6 percent weekly gain was its biggest in more than five years as Middle East turmoil and signs of lower U.S. production lifted prices. U.S. crude also retreated from its 2015 high, but registered a fifth straight weekly gain, which at 7.9 percent was the biggest since it jumped 13.5 percent in the week to Feb. 25 2011. Brent June crude fell 53 cents to settle at $63.45 a barrel, having swung from $62.95 to $64.50 after hitting $64.95, its 2015 high, on Thursday. Brent's second straight weekly gain, the fourth in five weeks, was its biggest since a 9.9 percent rally in the week to Oct. 16, 2009. U.S. May crude, expiring on Tuesday, fell 97 cents to settle at $55.74. It reached a 2015 peak of $57.42 on Thursday. Yemen's escalating conflict sparked Thursday's rally and on Friday military units protecting the Masila oilfields withdrew. More»

The dollar took back some ground lost after a surprisingly weak U.S. retail sales report, while the Australian dollar edged lower on Wednesday after downbeat Chinese economic data. China's annual economic growth slowed to a six-year low of 7.0 percent in the first quarter, with other key indicators slumping to new multi-year lows. Retail sales, industrial output and fixed asset investment growth rates all missed analyst expectations, with fixed-asset investment - a key economic demand driver in China - at its lowest level since 2000, while industrial output posted its weakest rise since the global financial crisis in 2008. "Some of the details were disappointing, but overall, the China data did not change anyone's expectations," said Masashi Murata, senior currency strategist at Brown Brothers Harriman in Tokyo. Other market participants said there was relief that the headline growth figure was not worse, and that helped push up U.S. Treasury yields and gave the dollar some support. More»

The dollar took a step back on Wednesday but retained a bulk of its overnight gains after currency bulls scooped up the greenback following the tumble induced by weak U.S. non-farm payrolls late last week. The dollar was down 0.2 percent at 120.09 yen JPY= after jumping 0.6 percent the previous day, when currency markets returned to full strength following the Easter holidays. The greenback was back at a level prior to Friday's much weaker-than-expected U.S. jobs data release, which took it down to as low as 118.71 yen by cooling prospects of an earlier interest rate hike by the Federal Reserve. Market reaction was mostly muted to the Bank of Japan's decision to stand pat on monetary policy. "The dollar dipped a little but the reaction was a token one as most in the market expected the BOJ to keep policy steady," said Bart Wakabayashi, head of forex at State Street in Tokyo. More»

The dollar weakened across the board on Monday, after much weaker-than-expected U.S. jobs data persuaded many in the market that the Federal Reserve is likely to wait until the second half of 2015 before raising interest rates. Friday's closely watched employment data showed U.S. non-farm payrolls rose by 126,000 in March, the smallest gain since December 2013 and well under the 245,000 economists had forecast. On the brighter side, average hourly earnings increased 0.3 percent. The employment data was the latest in a recent series of indicators that portrayed the U.S. economy in a less flattering light and seen making the Fed more cautious toward raising rates. "Market expectations had momentarily lurched toward a June rate hike, but such prospects have ebbed. A fifty-fifty chance of a hike in September, and that being the only tightening this year, is the view now being re-established," said Koji Fukaya, president at FPG Securities in Tokyo. More»

Oil futures climbed more than $1 a barrel on Monday, after Saudi Arabia raised prices for crude sales to Asia for a second month, signaling better demand in the region. International benchmark Brent regained ground after tumbling as much as 5 percent on Thursday, when a preliminary nuclear deal was finally reached between world powers and Iran. More Iranian oil could enter global markets if that is followed by a comprehensive deal by June. But analysts warned a ramp-up in exports could take months and would likely not happen before 2016. "While clearly a bearish headline, a final deal and full lifting of sanctions still faces a number of obstacles," Morgan Stanley analysts said in a note. "Even if a final deal is reached, we do not expect any physical market impact before 2016," the analysts said. More»

Brent crude oil shot up nearly 6 percent on Thursday after Saudi Arabia and its Gulf Arab allies began a military operation in Yemen, but the benchmark later came off its high near $60 as importers saw no immediate threat to supplies. The strike against Houthi rebels, who have driven the president from Yemen's capital Sanaa, could stoke concerns about the security of Middle East oil shipments. Oil prices jumped as traders and importers said they were worried the Saudi attack was a sign that fighting in the oil-rich Middle East was spreading and out of control. Brent futures LCOc1 rose as high as $59.71 a barrel, up almost 6 percent since their last settlement, before dipping back to $57.96 a barrel at 0638 GMT, though still up $1.48. U.S. crude CLc1 was up $1.76 at $50.97 a barrel. More»

The dollar hovered above a two-week low versus a basket of major currencies on Wednesday, pausing from the recent selloff sparked by doubts over how soon the Federal Reserve may start raising interest rates. Investors had rushed to cut long dollar positions after the Federal Reserve took a dovish tone on interest rates last week, sending the greenback crashing back from multi-year highs. The dollar index last stood at 97.152 .DXY. On Tuesday it had set a two-week low of 96.387, down roughly 4 percent from a near 12-year high of 100.39 struck in mid-March. The euro held steady near $1.0923 EUR=, having backed off from Tuesday's intraday high of $1.10295. "The price action is consistent with our expectation that longer-term oriented market participants will be keen to buy USD above $1.10 and we suspect that underlying flows from euro zone investors will continue to limit scope for EUR rallies," analysts at BNP Paribas wrote in a note to clients. Still, the euro remained well clear of a 12-year trough of $1.0457 set on March 16, having pushed higher against the dollar in the past week after the Fed signaled a more cautious outlook for U.S. economic growth and posited more gradual interest rate hikes.

Brent crude oil fell on Tuesday as the dollar regained its footing against the euro and fears of global oversupply persisted, while U.S. crude was buoyed by strong domestic economic data. The fall in Brent came after the dollar reversed early losses to rise 0.24 percent against the euro EUR=, making dollar-priced commodities more expensive in the euro zone. Brent futures for May delivery LCOc1 settled at $55.11 per barrel, down 81 cents. U.S. crude oil rose 6 cents to settle at $47.51 CLc1. The U.S. Commerce Department announced that new home sales jumped 7.8 percent to a seasonally-adjusted annual rate of 539,000 units last month, the highest since February 2008. Financial information services firm Markit said its U.S. Manufacturing Purchasing Managers' Index rose to its highest since October. "Today it seems as if the market's been catching its breath after reaching its six-year lows last week," Tradition Energy senior analyst Gene McGillian said. "The positive economic reports have helped." More»
