    The International Energy Agency (IEA) does not expect oil prices to rise significantly because demand is slowing and there is a glut in global crude markets, IEA executive director was quoted by the media as saying. Electric vehicles are not expected to make a dent on crude demand in India and elsewhere, IEA's Fatih Birol said, adding that he expects India's oil demand to continue rising. The IEA is reducing its 2019 oil demand forecast due to a slowing global economy amid a US-China trade spat, and may cut it again if the global economy and especially China shows further weakness, Birol told the media on 18 July.

    Gold prices were trading higher on hopes of US Fed rate cut. MCX Gold futures for 5 August 2019 settlement rose 0.53% at Rs 35,344.

    Overseas, Europe markets were trading higher while Asian markets closed on a positive note on Friday, as comments from US Federal Reserve official cemented expectations of a US interest rate cut later this month.

    US stocks closed higher Thursday, after New York Federal Reserve President John Williams said the central bank's wisest strategy is to cut interest rates at the first sign of economic distress when interest rates are already low.

    The Fed is widely expected to cut interest rates at the conclusion of its two-day July 30-31 policy meeting.
