Fundamental Development: Oil prices fell on Tuesday as bleak economic data from top crude buyer China renewed fears of a global recession. Brent crude futures fell 73 cents, or 0.8%, to $94.37 a barrel by. WTI crude futures dipped 44 cents, or 0.5%, to $88.97 a barrel. Oil futures fell about 3% during the previous session. China's central bank cut lending rates to revive demand as the economy slowed unexpectedly in July, with factory and retail activity squeezed by Beijing's zero-COVID policy and a property crisis. China's fuel product exports expected to rebound in August to near a year high after Beijing issued more quotas, adding pressure to already-cooling refining margins. Market participants awaited industry data on U.S. crude stockpiles due later on Tuesday. Oil and gasoline stockpiles likely fell last week, while distillate inventories raised, a preliminary Reuters poll showed on Monday.
