SINGAPORE, Aug 16, 2010 (AFP)
Oil prices were mixed in Asian trade Monday as concerns over the US and Chinese economies weighed on crude markets, analysts said.

New York’s main contract, light sweet crude for delivery in September, added nine cents to 75.48 dollars a barrel.

Brent North Sea crude for September delivery shed nine cents to 75.02 dollars on its last trading day.

Concerns about the US and Chinese economies, which are the world’s top two energy-consuming nations, have put a dampener on oil prices, said Tony Nunan, a risk manager with Mitsubishi Corp in Tokyo.

“The United States and China slowing down has got the markets a little concerned,” he told AFP.

He added that the outlook for both economies was “less bullish than before” and was counteracting strong economic data from Europe.

An announcement last Tuesday by the US Federal Reserve that the US recovery would be weaker than anticipated rattled global markets.

On Thursday, a surprise rise in the new US weekly jobless benefit claims added to increasing gloom over the strength of the global recovery from recession.

Slowing growth in China, the Asian powerhouse which has kept the global economy above water in the past 18 months, contributed to the worries over the global rebound.

Minyak dekati level rendah sebulan
Oleh: Bloomberg

NEW YORK (Bloomberg): Harga minyak mentah sedikit mengalami perubahan dan mendekati level rendah dalam sebulan setelah sempat jatuh pekan lalu. Perubahan ini dipicu oleh peningkatan penjualan industri ritel di AS yang lebih rendah dari estimasi analis di bulan Juli.

Kenyataan ini mengindikasikan bahwa pertumbuhan ekonomi di negara pengkonsumsi energi terbesar di dunia ini melambat.

Minyak mengakhiri pergerakan terburuk sejak 13 Agustus dipicu oleh berkurangnya jumlah pekerjaan di AS yang mendorong warga AS untuk memangkas pembelanjaan. Pasokan bahan bakar AS juga menguat untuk pekan ketujuh.

Harga kontrak minyak mentah untuk pengiriman September berada pada level US$75,63 per barel atau naik 24 sen di bursa komoditas New York Mercantile Exchange pada pukul 8:07 a.m waktu Sydney. Harga kontrak melemah 0,5% pada 13 Agustus untuk stabil pada level US$75,39, level terendah sejak 12 Juli. Harga kontrak turun 6,6% pekan ini, penurunan terbanyak sejak periode yang berakhir 2 Juli.

Harga minyak mentah untuk pengiriman September melemah 41 sen atau 0,5% menjadi US$75,11 per barel di bursa komoditas berbasis London ICE Futures Europe Exchange pada 13 Agustus. (T02/ln)
