LONDON.- International oil prices managed to rebound at the end of the session on both sides of the Atlantic, in a session of highs and lows against a dollar rebounding to a maximum of four months in foreign markets.
However, investors remained focused on any sign that French President Emmanuel Macron would achieve a nuclear deal with Iran, which overshadowed the bearish report that weekly inventories showed in the United States.
Futures on the benchmark WTI crude in New York rose 0.52 percent to $ 68.05 per barrel traded on the New York Mercantile Exchange.
While Brent crude for June delivery gained 0.19 percent to close at $ 74 a barrel traded on the London-based stock exchange ICE Futures Europe.
From the beginning, the data from the Energy Information Administration initially took the operators by surprise, showing a greater than expected accumulation in the US crude oil stocks. But in the end they gave more weight to France to reach a nuclear agreement with Iran.
