Oil inches down as inventory data counters trade deal hopes
LONDON- Oil prices ticked down on Wednesday as data suggesting a smaller-than-expected fall in U.S. crude inventories countered support from hopes for a U.S.-China trade deal.
Brent crude futures were down 46 cents at $61.68 a barrel by 1042 GMT.
U.S. West Texas Intermediate crude fell 3 cents to $53.87 a barrel. On Tuesday, it had recorded its biggest daily rise since early January.
After weeks of swelling, U.S. crude stocks fell by 812,000 barrels last week to 482 million, industry group the American Petroleum Institute said on Tuesday, a smaller fall than the 1.1 million barrel drop analysts had expected.
PVM said a price rally had run out of steam "as concerns over bulging U.S. oil stockpiles return to the fore."
