On global front, oil prices fell on Wednesday after industry data showed US stockpiles of crude unexpectedly rising, starting the new month in negative territory after the largest monthly decline in two years in July, as reported by news agency Reuters.

Brent fell more than 6 per cent in July, while US crude futures slumped about 7 per cent, the biggest monthly decline for both benchmarks since July 2016. A Reuters poll showed that oil prices are likely to hold fairly steady this year and next as increased output from OPEC and the United States meets growing demand led by Asia and helps to offset supply disruptions.
