#Oil benchmark Brent rose for a second day on Tuesday, remaining within range of a four-year high reached during the previous session.
Looming U.S. sanctions against Iran and the unwillingness or inability of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) and top oil producer Russia to raise output to offset the loss of Iranian supply have spurred prices higher.
Brent crude futures (LCOc1) were at $81.42 per barrel at 0315 GMT, up 22 cents, or 0.3 percent, and close to the intraday peak reached the previous day of $81.48, the highest since November 2014.
U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures (CLc1) were at $72.26 a barrel, up 28 cents, or 0.3 percent from their last settlement.
The United States from Nov. 4 will target Iran's oil exports with sanctions, and Washington is putting pressure on governments and companies around the world to fall in line and cut purchases from Tehran.
"Iran will lose sizeable export volumes, and given OPEC+ reluctance raise output, the market is ill-equipped to fill the supply gap," Harry Tchilinguirian, Global Head of Commodity Markets Strategy at French bank BNP Paribas (PA:BNPP), told the Reuters Global Oil Forum on Tuesday.
OPEC+ is the name given to the group of oil producers, including Russia, that agreed to curtail output starting in 2017.
While Britain, China, France, Germany, Russia and Iran on Tuesday said they were determined to develop payment mechanisms to continue trading despite the sanctions by the United States, most analysts expect Washington's actions to knock between 1 million and 1.5 million barrels per day (bpd) of crude oil supplies out of markets.

WILL OPEC ACT?
U.S. President Donald Trump has demanded that OPEC and Russia increase their supplies to make up for the expected fall in Iranian exports. Iran is the third-largest producer in OPEC.
OPEC and Russia, however, have so far rebuffed such calls.
"Any formal decision on oil output by the producer group, barring an extraordinary meeting, will only take place at the December meeting. Thus the window period for oil prices to potentially extend gains is quite

#A former Facebook contract employee has lodged a suit against the company, alleging that content moderators who face mental trauma after reviewing distressing images on the platform are not being properly protected by the social networking giant.
Facebook moderators under contract are "bombarded" with "thousands of videos, images and livestreamed broadcasts of child sexual abuse, rape, torture, bestiality, beheadings, suicide and murder," the lawsuit said.
"Facebook is ignoring its duty to provide a safe workplace and instead creating a revolving door of contractors who are irreparably traumatized by what they witnessed on the job," Korey Nelson, a lawyer for former Facebook contract employee Selena Scola, said in a statement on Monday.

#The United States and China imposed fresh tariffs on each other's goods on Monday as the world's biggest economies showed no signs of backing down from an increasingly bitter trade dispute that is expected to knock global economic growth.
Soon after the new duties went into effect, China accused the U.S. of engaging in "trade bullyism" and said it was intimidating other countries to submit to its will, the official Xinhua news agency said, reiterating China's willingness to fight if necessary.
But Beijing also said it was willing to restart trade negotiations with the United States if the talks are "based on mutual respect and equality," Xinhua said, citing a white paper on the dispute published by China's State Council.
U.S. tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods and retaliatory tariffs by Beijing on $60 billion worth of U.S. products took effect at midday Asian time, though the initial level of the duties was not as high as earlier feared.

#A reshuffling of Wall Street benchmark industry sectors that transferred high-flying FANG stocks like Facebook Inc (O:FB) and Google-parent Alphabet Inc (O:GOOGL) out of the technology label may be a boon to some under-the-radar companies that used to compete with them for investor attention.
Companies such as Cisco Systems Inc (O:CSCO), Juniper Networks Inc (N:JNPR), Xerox Corp (N:XRX), Akamai Technologies Inc (O:AKAM), and Texas Instruments Inc (O:TXN) that do not often grab headlines could be among the unexpected winners from the largest reclassification of companies on Wall Street since 1999, fund managers say.
That is because fund managers who are looking for technology exposure may be willing to add positions in companies that they previously overlooked now that Alphabet and Facebook have been regrouped into the new communications services sector and are no longer an option.
"At the end of the day, there are a lot of investors who are very sector-aware," said Steve Chiavarone, a portfolio manager at Federated Investors in New York.

قالت شركة تك بيرو كورب #اليابانية# المتخصصة في العملات الرقمية يوم الجمعة إنها تقدر حاليا قيمة عملات سُرقت من بورصة تابعة لها في عملية قرصنة الأسبوع الماضي بنحو 62 مليون دولار.
لكن الشركة أشارت إلى أن المبلغ مرشح للزيادة نظرا لأنه من المنتظر معرفة الأرقام الدقيقة فقط فور استعادة السيطرة الكاملة على خادم أجهزة الكمبيوتر الخاص بالشركة.
وقدرت الشركة في البداية المبلغ المسروق بنحو 6.7 مليار ين (59.48 مليون دولار) حين أعلنت عن حادث القرصنة الذي تعرضت له بورصة زايف التابعة لها يوم الخميس.
وفي بيان صحفي نُشر يوم الجمعة، قالت الشركة التي تتخذ من أوساكا مقرا إنها خلُصت إلى أنه جرت سرقة خمسة آلاف و966.1 بتكوين وستة ملايين و236 ألفا و 810.1 موناكوين و42 ألفا و327.1 بتكوين كاش.
أضافت أنه استنادا إلى أسعار الإغلاق في الثامن من سبتمبر أيلول لكل عملة، تصل القيمة الإجمالية إلى نحو سبعة مليارات ين (62.10 مليون دولار) مضيفة أن نحو 4.5 مليار ين هي أصول لعملائها.

#The U.S. dollar was slightly higher against other currencies on Friday while the Japanese yen was lower as investors eyed trade war tensions.
The U.S. dollar index, which measures the greenback’s strength against a basket of six major currencies, rose 0.10% to 93.56 as of 5:41 AM ET (9:41 GMT). The index fell more than 1% over the week, as investors moved away from the greenback in light of U.S.-China trade war worry.
On Wednesday Premier Li Keqiang said Beijing will not engage in competitive currency devaluation, as China and Washington dug deeper into a trade war dispute.
Earlier in the week China said it will impose new tariffs on U.S. goods worth $60 billion, effective September 24. The new tariffs are in response to U.S. tariffs on Monday of 10% on $200 billion in Chinese goods, which will go up to 25% at the end of the year.
Elsewhere, the dollar rose against the safe-haven yen, with USD/JPY up 0.24% to 112.74 despite Japan’s inflation data coming in at an unexpected seven-month high.
The pound slumped amid Brexit uncertainty, with GBP/USD falling 0.51% to 1.3194. EUR/USD rose 0.04% to 1.1781 after Eurozone manufacturing PMI came in lower than expected.
The Australian dollar was flat, with AUD/USD down 0.03% to 0.7290. Ratings agency S&P affirmed Australia’s sovereign rating at AAA and raised the outlook from negative to stable on Thursday, with an improved fiscal outlook stable commodity prices cited as the reasons for the upgrade.
Meanwhile NZD/USD jumped 1.26% to 0.6694 after Moody reaffirmed the country’s AAA rating.

#Asian stocks extended gains on Friday thanks to Wall Street scoring all-time highs, as investors gravitated to the view that the latest exchange of tariffs between the United States and China may be less damaging than initially feared.
A rally in Chinese markets helped lift the MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan 1.15 percent, buoyed in part by expectations that Beijing will pump more stimulus into its economy to weather the trade war. The MSCI index has rebounded 4.6 percent from a 14-month low on Sept. 12.
The upbeat mood is seen pushing up European shares, with financial spread-betters seeing Britain's FTSE, France's CAC 40 and Germany's DAX rising 0.3-0.4 percent.
Chinese shares, which had been hit the hardest by the trade war, rallied. The CSI 300 index of Shanghai and Shenzen shares, which slumped to a two-year low last week, rose 2.4 percent, on course for its largest weekly gain in more than two years.
"China has unveiled a series of steps to support the economy this week, starting with accelerating infrastructure spending," said Wang Shenshen, strategist at Tokai Tokyo Research.
"Yesterday we had guidelines to boost consumption, announced both by the Communist Party and the government...And there's talk of cuts in import tariffs. So the policy direction to boost domestic demand is clear," she said.
Japan's Nikkei rose 0.8 percent, hitting an eight-month high. (T)
On Wall Street, trade-sensitive industrial stocks led the gains on Thursday. The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 0.95 percent while the S&P 500 gained 0.78 percent, both hitting record highs. (N)
The latest rally comes after new U.S. and Chinese tariffs on each other's goods were set at lower rates this week than previously expected, raising hopes that hostilities between the world's two largest economies may be easing.

#ارتفعت أسعار الذهب يوم الخميس مع تراجع الدولار في ظل انحسار التوترات التجارية بين الولايات المتحدة والصين، لكن المستثمرين ما زالوا يتوخون الحذر قبل اجتماع مجلس الاحتياطي الاتحادي (البنك المركزي الأمريكي) الأسبوع المقبل.
وزاد الذهب في المعاملات الفورية 0.1 بالمئة إلى 1204.69 دولار للأوقية (الأونصة) بحلول الساعة 0628 بتوقيت جرينتش، بعد صعوده 0.5 بالمئة في الجلسة السابقة.
وارتفع الذهب في العقود الأمريكية الآجلة 0.1 بالمئة إلى 1209.30 دولار للأوقية.
وفي وقت سابق هذا الأسبوع، فرضت واشنطن رسوما نسبتها عشرة بالمئة على سلع صينية بقيمة 200 مليار دولار، بينما ردت الصين بفرض رسوم على سلع أمريكية بقيمة نحو 60 مليار دولار بنسب مخفضة عن المقترحة في السابق.
وأقبل المستثمرون على شراء الدولار اعتقادا منهم بأن الولايات المتحدة أقل تضررا من النزاع. لكن الضعف الذي اعترى العملة الأمريكية يشير إلى أن المخاوف من التوترات التجارية انحسرت مع اعتبار أن مستويات الرسوم أقل مما كان يخشاه البعض.
وحوم مؤشر الدولار، الذي يقيس أداء العملة الأمريكية أمام سلة من العملات الرئيسية ، قرب أدنى مستوياته في سبعة أسابيع.
ومن المتوقع على نطاق واسع أن يرفع البنك المركزي الأمريكي أسعار الفائدة الرئيسية في اجتماعه الأسبوع المقبل، ويوضح مسار الزيادات في المستقبل.
ومن بين المعادن النفيسة الأخرى، ارتفعت الفضة في المعاملات الفورية 0.7 بالمئة إلى 14.28 دولار للأوقية، بعدما لامست أعلى مستوى لها في أسبوعين عند 14.35 دولار في وقت سابق من الجلسة.
وزاد البلاديوم 0.4 بالمئة إلى 1039.10 دولار للأوقية، ليحوم قرب أعلى مستوياته في خمسة أشهر البالغ 1041.70 دولار الذي سجله أمس الأربعاء.
وصعد البلاتين 0.3 بالمئة إلى 823.20 دولار للأوقية، بعد أن بلغ أعلى مستوياته منذ 13 أغسطس آب عند 826.40 دولار في الجلسة السابقة.

#صعدت أسعار النفط للجلسة الثالثة على التوالي يوم الخميس في ظل انخفاض جديد للمخزونات الأمريكية وطلب قوي على البنزين في الولايات المتحدة، كما وجدت الأسعار دعما في مؤشرات بأن منظمة البلدان المصدرة للبترول (أوبك) قد لا تزيد الإنتاج لتعويض نقص إمدادات إيران.
وبحلول الساعة 0611 بتوقيت جرينتش صعد سعر خام القياس العالمي مزيج برنت 26 سنتا أو 0.3 بالمئة إلى 79.66 دولار للبرميل بعدما زاد 0.5 بالمئة يوم الأربعاء.
وارتفع سعر خام غرب تكساس الوسيط الأمريكي 60 سنتا أو 0.8 بالمئة إلى 71.72 دولار للبرميل بعدما قفز بنحو اثنين بالمئة في الجلسة السابقة.
وقالت إدارة معلومات الطاقة يوم الأربعاء إن مخزونات الخام الأمريكية انخفضت للأسبوع الخامس على التوالي إلى أدنى مستوى في ثلاثة أعوام ونصف العام في الأسبوع المنتهي يوم 14 سبتمبر أيلول، بينما تراجعت مخزونات البنزين بمعدل أكبر من المتوقع بفعل طلب قوي في غير موسمه.
وكشفت بيانات الإدارة أن المخزونات تراجعت 2.1 مليون برميل مقارنة مع توقعات بانخفاضها 2.7 مليون برميل.
وتجتمع أوبك ومنتجون مستقلون منهم روسيا يوم الأحد في الجزائر لمناقشة كيفية توزيع زيادات الإمدادات داخل الحصص المخصصة لكل منهم لتعويض النقص في الإمدادات الإيرانية.
وأبلغت مصادر من أوبك رويترز أنه لا توجد خطط لاتخاذ إجراء فوري وأن المنتجين سيناقشون كيفية توزيع زيادة الإنتاج المتفق عليها سابقا.

#Asian stocks edged higher on Thursday and European markets looked set to follow as investors bet that robust U.S. economic growth will offset the drag from the Sino-U.S. trade war for a while longer.
After a knee-jerk reaction to new tit-for-tat tariffs announced by Washington and Beijing on Tuesday, markets now appear to be taking a somewhat longer view, reckoning the fallout will take some time to show up in corporate earnings and not produce a sharp global shock.
MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan rose 0.1 percent, while Japan's Nikkei stock index ended flat. Shares in China and Hong Kong dipped.
In Europe, spreadbetters expected London's FTSE to open 0.1 percent higher at 7,338, Frankfurt's DAX to open 0.07 percent higher at 12,227 and Paris' CAC to open 0.07 percent higher at 5,398.

#The dollar turned positive against its rivals Tuesday, as investors weighed the latest escalation in the tit-for-tat tariff dispute between the U.S. and China, while a weaker euro also lifted sentiment.
The U.S. dollar index, which measures the greenback against a trade-weighted basket of six major currencies, rose by 0.16% to 94.25, from a session low of 93.88.
China said it will impose new tariffs on U.S. goods worth $60 billion on Sept. 24, but levies would be instituted at lower rates than had been expected, according to a Reuters report.
China's tariff rate on a list of 5,207 U.S. products will range between 5% and 10%, below the previously touted 10% to 20% rate, Reuters said.
Investors seemingly took this as a sign that both sides were in no hurry to enter a full-scale trade war, as the United States also imposed tariffs at a lower rate than previously expected.
U.S. President Donald Trump announced late Monday new 10% tariffs on $200 billion in Chinese goods, below an original figure of 25% floated by the administration previously.
The trade-war proxy AUD/JPY, rose 0.71% to 80.95, while risk-sensitive USD/JPY rose 0.38% to Y112.31.
