Preço do petróleo cai devido a receios com a procura mundial
- In yesterday's session a risk-off mood dominated investor sentiment. Stock indices declined across the globe and the price of safe assets (such as U.S. Treasuries, Japanese yen, Swiss franc and gold) rose.
- This move was triggered by somewhat lower economic sentiment data in the U.S. and in the euro area (May's manufacturing PMI fell to 50.6 and 47.7, respectively) and higher fears of a further escalation in trade tensions between the U.S. and China.
- Euro area sovereign yields were little changed as the release of the accounts of the last ECB meeting offered few new information. The medium-term economic outlook remains positive, although risks continue tilted to the downside.
- In oil markets, the price of the barrel of Brent decreased more than 6% amid concerns on global demand growth. Also, the weekly release of the U.S. DOE showed an increase in U.S. oil inventories.
