Oil Retreats Over U.S.-China Trade Deal Comments…LIVE NEWS UPDATE BY ROYAL TRADERS


Oil was down on Tuesday morning in Asia, giving up its earlier gains from the session.

Brent oil futures fell 0.46% to $42.88 by 10:17 PM ET (3:17 AM GMT) and WTI futures slid 0.61% to $40.48.

Investors were spooked after White House trade adviser Peter Navarro told the press on Monday that the U.S.’s trade deal with China is “over”, crushing hopes of salvaging the hard-won phase one trade deal reached earlier this year.

China, one of the world’s biggest oil importers, has yet to respond to Navarro’s comments, but an escalation of U.S.-China tension threatens a delay in the global economic recovery from COVID-19, in turn increasing the risks of an oversupply.
