Crude Oil Under Pressure – Trade War Sentiment Burdens
Arslan Butt • 1 min read
The trade war continues to dominate crude oil prices as the sentiment is still under the spotlight. As per recent updates, Beijing has warned that it will retaliate if the White House follows through on its plan to raise tariffs on Friday.
Another exciting news from Beijing, China is fully ready to protect its interests against the trade war with the United States, but China expects that the United States can resolve problems with the help of discussion rather than unilateral steps, the Chinese commerce ministry said on Thursday.
China seems to play a decisive role here as it is prepared to resolve concerns through dialogue instead of unilateral steps. This news could leave a positive impact on crude oil prices today.
