Les dépêches lundi matin

Euro contre dollar 

Pétrole, rachats de shorts.

A barrel of West Texas Intermediate crude for September delivery was trading unchanged at $49.71 at 5:15 a.m. Eastern Time after briefly trading above $50 earlier in the session.

Short positions in WTI stood at less than half their end-of-June level over the week ended July 25, data from the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission showed. Promises of more cuts from OPEC members, and oil-major quarterly results pointing to reduced investment in exploration, have spurred an uptick in bullish sentiment for the commodity. 

Inflation zone euro, inchangée 

Consumer price growth in the euro area remained steady at 1.3 percent in July, according to the flash estimate from the European statistics agency. Core inflation, which strips out food and energy prices, rose to 1.2 percent, the highest level in three months. The data come as policy makers at the European Central Bank are gearing up for a fall debate on the future path of monetary policy. A separate release showed that unemployment in the common currency area fell to 9.1 percent in June.
