By Isabel Kua SINGAPORE (Reuters) - Oil prices inched lower on Tuesday as Hungary resisted a European Union push for a ban on Russian oil imports, a move that would tighten global supply, with investors taking profits on a recent rally. Brent crude futures fell 11 cents, or 0.1%, to $114.13 a barrel by 0602 GMT, and U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures slid 22 cents, or 0.2%, to $113.98 a barrel. Both benchmarks gained more than 2% on Monday, following a 4% jump on Friday. EU foreign ministers failed on Monday in their effort to pressure Budapest to lift its veto of a proposed oil embargo on Russia following the country's invasion of Ukraine. An embargo would require approval from all EU nations. On the supply side, U.S. producers are ramping up in order to replenish inventories that have dwindled in the wake of Russia's war on Ukraine - which Moscow calls "a special military operation" - and recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. Oil output in the Permian Basin in Texas and New Mexico, the biggest U.S. shale oil producer, is due to rise 88,000 barrels per day (bpd) to a record 5.219 million bpd in June, the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) said on Monday. Still, overall sentiment on prices remained bullish amid optimism about demand recovery in China as it looks to ease COVID restrictions that have hurt its economy, analysts said. "All supply data suggest dips will be shallow despite potential demand destruction from China's lockdown but even in that view, we are seeing the light at the end of the lockdown tunnel trade," said Stephen Innes, managing partner at SPI Asset Management, in a note. Shanghai on Tuesday achieved the long-awaited milestone of three consecutive days with no new COVID-19 cases outside quarantine zones and set out on Monday its clearest timetable yet for exiting a lockdown now in its seventh week. Further supporting prices was the "intensifying geopolitical tension" between EU and Russia as Sweden and Finland seek to join NATO, CMC Markets analyst Tina Teng said. "This could cause a retaliation action by Russia to further cut gas supply," she added. Stockpiles in the Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR) fell to 538 million barrels, the lowest since 1987, data from the U.S. Department of Energy showed on Monday, underlining tight supply.

By Florence Tan SINGAPORE (Reuters) - Oil prices slipped on Monday, along with stock markets in Asia, sparked by weak China data and fears a global recession could dampen oil demand, with investors eying European Union talks on a Russian oil embargo that could tighten global supplies. Brent crude lost 41 cents, or 0.4%, to $111.98 a barrel by 0603 GMT. U.S. West Texas Intermediate crude was at $109.24 a barrel, down 53 cents, or 0.5%. Both contracts briefly turned positive after falling more than $1 earlier in the session. "The broader risk-off sentiment sparked by the recession fears, and China's lockdowns are the major factors that pressure the oil price," CMC Markets analyst Tina Teng said. Global financial markets have also been spooked by concerns over interest rate hikes and recession worries as tighter and wider COVID-19 lockdowns in China led to slower export growth in the world's No. 2 economy in April. Crude imports by China, the world's top oil importer, rose nearly 7% in April from a year earlier although imports for the first four months fell 4.8% on year. A price cut by Saudi Arabia also reflected worries over global oil demand, Teng said. Saudi Arabia, world's top oil exporter, lowered crude prices for Asia and Europe for June on Sunday. EU RUSSIA OIL EMBARGO Last week, the European Commission proposed a phased embargo on Russian oil as part of its toughest-yet package of sanctions over the conflict in Ukraine, boosting Brent and WTI prices for the second straight week. However, the proposal requires a unanimous vote among EU members this week. The EU proposal was followed by a pledge by G7 nations on Sunday to ban or phase out Russian oil imports. Washington also imposed new sanctions against Gazprombank executives and other businesses. Japan, part of G7 and one of the world's top five crude importers, will ban Russian crude imports "in principle", Prime Minister Fumio Kishida said on Sunday. "It seems inevitable that both the EU and Japan will be competing for more non-Russia supplies in the future, and this is underpinning prices," said Jeffrey Halley, OANDA's senior analyst, in a note. Bulgaria's Deputy Prime Minister, however, said on Sunday that his country would veto EU oil sanctions on Russia if it does not get a derogation from the proposed ban. "The talks will continue tomorrow, on Tuesday too, a meeting of the leaders may be needed to conclude them. Our position is very clear. If there be a derogation for some of the countries, we want to get a derogation too," Vassilev told national BNT television. Bulgaria had earlier said it would seek an exemption from the proposed Russian oil ban if such opt-outs were allowed, but it was not clear if it was seeking a full exemption or a delay similar to the one proposed on Friday for Hungary, Slovakia and the Czech Republic.

By Huw Jones LONDON (Reuters) - Stocks edged higher on Wednesday, but gains were capped by questions over how far real bond yields will rise as investors sifted through disappointing Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) earnings and war continued in Ukraine. The STOXX index of 600 European companies gained 0.4% to 458.17 points. The MSCI all country stock index was 0.2% firmer. Investors kept a wary eye on the 10-year Treasury Inflation-Protected Securities (TIPS), whose yields briefly broke above negative territory on Tuesday for the first time since March 2020. A rise in real yields poses a fresh headwind for risky assets such as stocks, especially big tech firms which report earnings next week, now more closely scrutinised after Netflix shares sank on Tuesday evening after news it was losing subscribers. Tech-heavy Nasdaq futures were down 0.6 percent, with S&P500 futures shedding 0.3% "You are going to have to see real yields in much more positive territory before they make stock markets less attractive," said Michael Hewson, chief market analyst at CMC Markets. "The bigger question the markets are wrestling with at the moment is has inflation peaked? If inflation has peaked, then maybe it's a good time to buy bonds again, which is why we are seeing so much uncertainty as to the future direction of the stock markets," Hewson said. The dollar climbed to a fresh two-decade peak to the yen, buoyed as the Bank of Japan stepped into the market again to defend its ultra low interest rate policy. Data is beginning to emerge from the International Monetary Fund this week on how much the two-month old war in Ukraine is hitting the global economy. The U.S. Federal Reserve issues its "Beige Book" of economic conditions from late February to early April on Wednesday. "We expect the pace of economic activity eased slightly to a modest pace," UniCredit analysts said in a note. In Europe, German producer prices hit a record high amid war in Ukraine. In an election which has rattled French bonds, President Emmanuel Macron and far-right candidate Marine Le Pen will face each other in a televised debate on Wednesday evening. Macron, however, appears to be pulling ahead of Le Pen in the polls ahead of Sunday's final round in the election. ASIA SHARES RISE MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan rose 0.3%, its first positive session in a week. Japan's Nikkei rose 0.8%, like other markets in the region tracking Tuesday's gains on Wall Street where the three main benchmarks had their best days in over a month, helped by several strong earnings results. The Nasdaq closed up 2.2%. China bucked the regional trend as Chinese blue chips shed 1.5% after the central bank kept its benchmark lending rates unchanged, despite frequent government pledges to support a slowing economy hit by the worst COVID-19 outbreak in two years. That decision in contrast helped the Chinese yuan recover after hitting its lowest since October in early trade. "Investors were looking for stimulus from China but the PBOC didn't deliver today," said Carlos Casanova. "Markets inevitably are going to interpret that in a negative way with the lockdowns extending into April and beyond, meaning the worst months for economic data are ahead of us." The yield on a highly -traded contract of China's 10-year government bond fell below U.S. 10-year Treasury yield for the first time since 2010 on earlier this month, and Chinese 10 year yields were last around 2.85%. Benchmark 10-year Treasury yields were within a whisker of 3% on Wednesday - though were little changed on the day. Yield differentials are also a factor for Japan, where the central bank on Wednesday offered to buy an unlimited amount of 10-year Japanese government bonds (JGB) at 0.25%, in its third move since February to defend its yield target. This yield curve control has sent the yen to 20-year lows against the dollar, but the dollar retreated 0.2% on the yen on Wednesday amid some nerves that intervention - verbal or otherwise - from Japanese authorities could drive a bounce. Oil prices rebounded from sharp losses in the previous session as concerns about tighter supplies from Russia and Libya dominated. Brent crude futures rose 1.2% to $108.55 a barrel. Spot gold fell 0.4% to its lowest in a week dragged down by higher yields.

By Uday Sampath Kumar and Chavi Mehta (Reuters) -Elon Musk took aim at Twitter (NYSE:TWTR) with a $41 billion cash offer on Thursday, with the Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) CEO and billionaire entrepreneur saying the social media giant needs to be taken private to grow and become a platform for free speech. "Twitter has extraordinary potential. I will unlock it," Musk, who is already the company's second-largest shareholder, said in a letter to Twitter's board on Wednesday. The offer was made public in a regulatory filing on Thursday. Musk's offer price of $54.20 per share represents a 38% premium to Twitter's April 1 close, the last trading day before his 9.1% stake in the social media platform was made public. Musk rejected an invitation to join Twitter's board this week after disclosing his stake, a move which analysts said signaled his takeover intentions as a board seat would have limited his shareholding to just under 15%. He told Twitter it was his best and final offer and said he would reconsider his investment if the board rejects it. "Since making my investment I now realize the company will neither thrive nor serve this societal imperative in its current form. Twitter needs to be transformed as a private company," Musk said in his letter to Twitter Chairman Bret Taylor. Musk, who calls himself a free-speech absolutist, has been critical of the social media platform and its policies, and recently ran a poll on Twitter asking users if they believed it adheres to the principle of free speech. Twitter will review the offer with advice from Goldman Sachs (NYSE:GS) and Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati, a source told Reuters. Shares in Twitter rose about 5% in pre-market trading to $48.30 in New York, where they were the most actively traded, while Tesla stock fell by about 2%. Based on its Wednesday closing price of $45.85, Twitter's share price reaction implied a 29% chance of Musk clinching a deal. The total deal value of $41 billion was calculated based on 763.58 million shares outstanding, according to Refinitiv data. Musk said U.S. investment bank Morgan Stanley (NYSE:MS) was acting as financial adviser for his offer. However, he did not say how he would finance the transaction if it goes ahead. "We think Musk could look to fund the transaction, if approved, through a combination of debt financing and potentially Tesla shares. Given the size of the transaction (about $43B), we think it is conceivable that some Tesla shares could be sold given much of his wealth is tied to the company," CFRA Research analyst Angelo Zino said. Musk, the richest person in the world according to a tally by Forbes, sold more than $15 billion worth of his Tesla shares, about 10% of his stake in the electric vehicle maker, late last year to settle a tax obligation. 'SERIAL UNDERPERFORMER' Twitter's lower-than-expected user additions in recent months have raised doubts about its growth prospects, even as it pursues big projects such as audio chat rooms and newsletters. "The big question for the Twitter board now is whether to accept a very generous offer for a business that has been a serial underperformer and tends to treat its users with indifference," Michael Hewson, Chief Market analyst at CMC Markets, said after the announcement of Musk's offer. Musk has amassed more than 80 million followers since joining Twitter in 2009 and has used it to make several announcements, including teasing a go-private deal for Tesla that landed him in hot water with regulators. He has also been sued by former Twitter shareholders who claim they missed out on the recent run-up in its stock price because he waited too long to disclose his stake. "If he really wants to take Twitter private his past run-ins with regulators might not pose an obstacle – but it might make potential financing sources leery of providing the cash for the deal – unless he is willing to pledge a large portion of his Tesla holdings to collateralize the debt," Howard Fischer, a partner at law firm Moses & Singer and former senior trial counsel at the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Musk's move also raises the question of whether other bidders might emerge for Twitter, although the initial share price reaction did not suggest this was widely expected. "It would be hard for any other bidders/consortium to emerge and the Twitter board will be forced likely to accept this bid and/or run an active process to sell Twitter," Wedbush Securities analyst Daniel Ives wrote in a client note. "There will be host of questions around financing, regulatory, balancing Musk's time (Tesla, SpaceX) in the coming days but ultimately based on this filing it is a now or never bid for Twitter to accept," Ives said.

By Bozorgmehr Sharafedin LONDON (Reuters) -Oil prices fell around $7 a barrel on Monday as investors pinned hopes on diplomatic efforts between Ukraine and Russia to end their conflict, while a surge in COVID-19 cases in China spooked the markets. Brent was down by $6.78, or 6%, at $105.89 a barrel at 1358 GMT and U.S. crude fell $7.01, or 6.4%, to $102.32. Both benchmarks have surged since Russia's Feb. 24 invasion of Ukraine and are up roughly 40% in the year to date. Ukrainian and Russian negotiators are set to talk again on Monday via video link. Negotiators had given their most upbeat assessments after weekend negotiations, suggesting there could be positive results within days. "Beside new talks between Ukraine and Russia, I guess new lockdowns in China are the reason for a negative start of the week for crude oil," said UBS analyst Giovanni Staunovo. A northeastern Chinese province on Monday imposed a rare travel ban on its population as the region's Omicron outbreak helped drive China's tally of new local COVID-19 cases so far this year higher than the total in 2021. "Oil prices might continue moderating this week as investors have been digesting the impact of sanctions on Russia, along with parties showing signs of negotiation towards (a) ceasefire," said Tina Teng, an analyst at CMC Markets. Russia's output of oil and gas condensate rose to 11.12 million barrels per day (bpd) so far in March, two sources familiar with production data told Reuters, despite sanctions. The United States has announced a ban on Russian oil imports and Britain said it would phase them out by the end of 2022. Russia is the world's top exporter of crude and oil products combined, shipping about 7 million bpd or 7% of global supplies. A senior minister said British Prime Minister Boris Johnson was trying to persuade Saudi Arabia to increase its oil output, while International Energy Agency (IEA) chief Fatih Birol urged oil-producing countries to pump more. India said it would take "appropriate" steps to calm the rise in oil prices, indicating the country could release more oil from its national stocks if required. Indian officials also said New Delhi was considering a Russian offer to buy its crude oil and other commodities at discounted prices via a rupee-rouble transaction. Meanwhile, investors are watching this week's meeting of the U.S. Federal Reserve, which is expected to start raising interest rates, a move that would boost the dollar and could push down oil prices. A stronger greenback makes dollar-denominated oil more expensive for holders of foreign currencies.

By Huw Jones LONDON (Reuters) - Wall Street was headed for a steady start on Friday, helping stocks to consolidate record highs in Europe on the back of strong earnings and shrug off renewed selling in U.S. Treasury markets. The dollar was set for it biggest weekly rise in five months, helping to send crude oil prices down nearly 2% a barrel. U.S. Treasury markets were closed on Thursday for a holiday, but selling resumed on Friday, driven by Wednesday's news of the biggest annual rise in U.S. inflation in 31 years. Worry over interest rate hikes to quell inflation could catch up with riskier assets like stocks, analysts cautioned. "It's all about the June Fed meeting in my mind, which is almost priced in as a hike," said Peter Chatwell, head of multi-asset strategy at Mizuho in London. "We're at the inflection point whereby any further hawkish repricing of dollar rates markets is likely to weigh much more heavily on risk assets than it has in the past." In Europe, euro zone money markets priced in two full European Central Bank rate hikes by the end of next year. A Reuters poll showed the Bank of England is expected to be the first major central bank to raise rates, probably next month. U.S. stock futures were slightly firmer as shares in Johnson & Johnson (NYSE:JNJ) rose before the bell on news it was planning to break up into two companies. Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) Inc Chief Executive Officer Elon Musk sold more shares of the electric carmaker, regulatory filings showed on Friday. The world's stock prices posted their biggest fall in over a month on Wednesday on data showing the U.S. consumer price index rose 6.2% year-on-year in October, the strongest advance since November 1990. However, European shares chalked up new highs on Friday, with the STOXX index of 600 companies up 0.08%, enough to eke out a new record high for a second day running. The CAC 40 French blue chip index in Paris also clocked up a new high, helped by a rise in luxury companies following strong earnings from Cartier-owned Richemont. The MSCI All Country stock index was up 0.1% at 752.79 points, recovering its footing after Wednesday's drop in the wake of the U.S. inflation data. The index is barely six points below Tuesday's record high. "Directionally, the line of least resistance is for lower bond prices and higher yields and the stock market does not seem to care that much," said Mike Hewson, chief markets analyst at CMC Markets. Bond yields ticked up on Friday, with the 10-year U.S. Treasuries yield at 1.57%. "Inflation is obviously a risk to watch. But stock prices will face a major crash only if the Federal Reserve turns out to be completely wrong in its assessment and is forced to raise interest rates rapidly. That's not where we are now," said Norihiro Fujito, chief investment strategist at Mitsubishi UFJ (NYSE:MUFG) Morgan Stanley (NYSE:MS) Securities. OIL SLUMPS In the currency market, the dollar held firm after Wednesday's strong U.S. inflation reading fanned expectations the Fed would tighten monetary policy faster than previously thought. An index of the dollar against six other currencies was flat at 95.160, on track for its biggest weekly rise in five months. The yen was trading at 113.97 per dollar, down slightly on the day and near its four-year low hit last month, while commodity currencies such as the Australian dollar and the Canadian dollar were on a back foot. Oil prices dipped as the market grappled with a stronger U.S. dollar, along with concern over increasing U.S. inflation, and after OPEC cut its 2021 oil demand forecast due to high prices. Brent crude futures were down 1.76% at $81.40 per barrel, while U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) futures dropped 1.9% to $80.02 per barrel. Gold prices eased off Wednesday's five-month highs to $1,853 per ounce, down 0.4% on the day. Shares in Asia were largely steady, with Japan's Nikkei up 1.13%, helped by brisk earnings. MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan rose 0.62%, but mainland Chinese shares were softer, with CSI 300 index slipping 0.2%.

By Huw Jones LONDON (Reuters) - Stocks advanced on Friday as strong earnings kicked off a new results season on Wall Street and fears that inflation will trigger earlier-than-expected interest rate rises eased for now. The MSCI All World Share Index was up 0.31%. U.S. stock futures were about 0.4% higher, with investors waiting for the latest U.S. retail sales figures, and inflation expectations from the University of Michigan. Earnings from Goldman Sachs (NYSE:GS) were expected to be in line with strong results on Thursday from several of its U.S. peers which propelled shares higher. "The overall mood is buy the bid, there is no alternative to equities. We have come out with this enthusiasm about earnings coming back and optimism coming through," said Kit Juckes, global fixed income strategist at SocGen. In Europe, the STOXX index of 600 European shares was up 0.3%, hitting a three-week high. Britain's FTSE 100 gained 0.2%, with the UK blue-chip index recovering all ground lost since the coronavirus pandemic began in March last year, but analysts warned over complacency in markets. "Markets have been trying to make up their mind on whether inflation is transitory, are supply chain disruptions are going to translate into higher costs," said Mike Hewson, chief markets analyst at CMC Markets. "But this week's earnings from various companies are assuaging some of those concerns that companies won't be able to pass on some of these cost rises to consumers, and that's why we are seeing the increase in risk," Hewson said. The return of optimism will be tested by next week's anticipated weaker growth data from China and the impact of strengthening oil prices on consumers going into the winter months, Hewson said. European car registrations slumped by more than a quarter in September, and Toyota Motor (NYSE:TM) Corp said it would cut global output in November as chip shortages and supply chain problems continued to dog the sector. Investors were also trying to figure out where bonds go next. "With no strong case for either direction and many investors likely to be sitting on a dismal performance as major fixed income indices are in the red year-to-date, yield volatility is likely to remain elevated in the coming months," UniCredit told clients in a note. " onerror="this.style.display='none'" class="msg-img" /> BRENT AND BITCOIN Oil prices were at multi-year highs, a drag on growth in energy-importing markets in north Asia, but good news for some energy-exporting markets in Southeast Asia. U.S. crude gained 0.9% to $82.05 a barrel, back near Monday's seven-year high of $82.18. Brent crude rose 1% to $84.91 per barrel, around its three-year high hit on Monday. [O/R] Bitcoin hit a six-month high of $60,000 on Friday, approaching the record hit in April, as traders became increasingly confident U.S. regulators would approve the launch of an exchange-traded fund based on its futures contracts. MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan gained 1.2%, and was set for a 1.7% weekly gain, which would be its best weekly performance since early September, while Japan's Nikkei surged 1.81%, led by tech stocks. Analysts largely attributed the gains in Asia to the U.S. rally. Chinese shares rose more cautiously than elsewhere with blue chips up 0.38% ahead of next week's growth figures. "We expect GDP growth to slow to 4.6% year-on-year in the third quarter from 5.6% previously, in view of persistent weakness in consumption and services amid repeated COVID outbreaks, and the fading of the low year-earlier base," said Barclays (LON:BARC) analysts in a note. In currency markets, the dollar rose again to a near three- year high versus the yen with one dollar buying 114.32 yen, the most since late 2018. The dollar index, which measures the greenback against a basket of currencies, was marginally lower on the day, at 93.89 and set for its first weekly decline versus major peers since the start of last month, having lost a little ground to sterling and the euro. The yield on benchmark 10-year Treasury notes was 1.5388%, slightly higher on the day, after trending downwards this week from Tuesday's four-month high of 1.631%.

By Naveen Thukral and Florence Tan SINGAPORE (Reuters) -Oil prices extended gains on Friday, but remained on track for their biggest weekly decline since March as travel restrictions to curb the spread of the COVID-19 Delta variant are raising concerns about fuel demand. Brent crude oil futures were up 47 cents at $71.76 a barrel at 0640 GMT while U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures rose 45 cents to $69.54 a barrel, but both contracts have given up 6% this week, the most since March. "The price action we see now is really a function of the macro picture," said Howie Lee, an economist at Singapore's OCBC bank. "The Delta variant is now really starting to hit home and you see risk aversion in many markets, not just oil." Japan is poised to expand emergency restrictions to more prefectures while China, the world's second-largest oil consumer, has imposed curbs in some cities and cancelled flights, threatening fuel demand. "At least 46 cities have advised against travelling, and authorities have suspended flights and stopped public transport. This could impact oil demand as it comes towards the end of the summer travel season," ANZ said in a report. Daily new COVID-19 cases in the United States have climbed to a six-month high. However, worries over rising tensions between Israel and Iran limited the decline in prices. "In the short-term oil prices are likely to be stuck in a range-bound environment," CMC Markets analyst Kelvin Wong said, with WTI trading between $66.30 and $75.70 per barrel. He said that oil's upside has also been capped by improving crude supplies in the United States while non-farm payroll data due later on Friday has lent a cautious air to trading.

Treasury yields ended higher yesterday, as the 10-year holding around the 1.57% level (up roughly 8 bps prior to the Fed announcement). The number of Fed governors who expect rate hikes as early as 2022 – known as the dot plot – went to seven from four, essentially translating into two rate hikes in 2023 based on growth and inflation projections from the 18 members of the FOMC as the economy recovers rapidly from the effects of the pandemic and inflation heats up. Banking shares rally, however, as bond yields rise, with the 10-year Treasury hitting 1.55%. Chairman Jerome Powell also said officials discussed an eventual reduction of bond-buying, though the timing of such a move remains uncertain. In Asian markets, The Nikkei Index dropped -272 points to 29,018, the Shanghai Index rose 7 points to 3,525, and the Hang Seng Index gained 121 points to settle at 28,558.
