Crude oil futures fall 2.41 per cent on global cues
Crude oil futures fell 2.41 per cent to Rs 4,043 per barrel Wednesday in line with a weak trend in overseas markets.
Crude oil contracts for June were trading lower by Rs 100, or 2.41 per cent, at Rs 4,043 per barrel with a business volume of 15,714 lots on Multi Commodity Exchange.
Analysts said crude oil prices fell amid concerns over the escalating US-China trade war. However, OPEC supply cuts and tensions in Middle East offered respite to crude oil prices.
