Oil prices rebounded on Friday from losses of more than 1% the previous day as investors turned cautiously optimistic over the fading risk of a U.S. debt default.
Brent futures rose 69 cents, or 0.9%, to $76.55 a barrel by 0923 GMT, while West Texas Intermediate U.S. crude climbed 56 cents, or 0.8%, to $72.42.
“I think markets have been pricing out the risks of a U.S. debt default, which translates to a more risk-on environment and some dip-buying in Brent crude from previous oversold conditions,” said Yeap Jun Rong, a market strategist at IG.
