  • Oil's drop chills Asian stocks, inflation data boosts dollar
    Asian shares were mostly lower on Friday as a sharp overnight pullback in crude oil prices dampened risk appetite, while the dollar was firm after upbeat U.S. data tilted expectations back toward an early interest rate hike by the Federal Reserve. Strong factory output data and a weaker yen pushed Tokyo's Nikkei (.N225) to a fresh 15-year high but the market was last flat as profit taking kicked in. MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan was down 0.1 percent after advancing to a five-month high on Wednesday.
  • Brent rises above $61, set for biggest monthly gain since 2009
    Crude oil futures rebounded on Friday, with Brent heading for its biggest monthly gain since May 2009, as supply outages in the North Sea and renewed fears of gas supply disruption in Europe supported prices. A reduction in rig counts and expectations for better oil demand have helped Brent prices rise by around 15 percent so far this month from January's close of $52.99. Brent crude (LCOc1) rose 98 cents to $61.03 a barrel by 0055 ET. Elsewhere in Europe, gas supply talks between the European Union, Ukraine and Russia will be held in Brussels on Monday after President Vladimir Putin warned that Russia would halt gas supplies to Ukraine that can cause disruptions in deliveries to Europe.
  • Lower gasoline prices dampen U.S. consumer inflation
    U.S. consumer prices fell over the past year for the first time since 2009 as gasoline prices continued to tumble, which could allow a cautious Federal Reserve more room to hold off on raising interest rates. Other data on Thursday showed a rebound in business investment spending plans and a steadily firming labor market, suggesting the move into deflation territory would be brief. In addition, gasoline prices have been rising in recent weeks. "We believe the Fed will wait until September before achieving liftoff on interest rates and, even then, the process of normalization will move at a glacial pace," said Diane Swonk, chief economist at Mesirow Financial in Chicago.
