Daily (01.03.2019): EU carbon prices topped €22 a tonne on Thursday, rising for the fifth consecutive day

Brent crude price reversed trend, turning bearish on Thursday, influenced by lower factory output reported by the two Asia’s biggest economies – China and Japan. The record level of U.S. crude stockpiles also weighed on prices. On top of that, the lack of a deal after the two-day summit between U.S. president Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un left the financial markets under pressure. Brent crude edged 0.5% down at $66.03 a barrel. Nevertheless, OPEC-led supply cuts and last week’s decline in crude U.S. crude imports to a two-decade low supported WTI crude price, which inched 0.5% up at $57.22 a barrel.
