The official Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI) released on Saturday fell to 51.5 in June, from 51.9 in May, but it remained well above the 50-point mark that separates growth from contraction for a 23rd straight month.” (Reuters)

“Canada struck back at the US administration on Friday over U.S. steel and aluminum tariffs, vowing to impose punitive measures on C$16.6 billion ($12.63 billion) worth of American goods until Washington relents.

Futures:

U.S. benchmark oil futures settled higher for a fourth straight session on Friday, tallying a gain of more than 20% for the first half of 2018. Recent sharp declines in U.S. crude supplies, output concerns linked to Venezuela, Libya and Canada, as well as uncertainty surrounding Iranian exports, have contributed to oil’s price gains, despite an agreement among major oil producers to boost crude production. August West Texas Intermediate crude added 70 cents, or nearly 1%, to settle at $74.15 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange. That was the highest for a most-active contract since Nov. 24, 2014. (MarketPulse)

Crude oil futures were up 11.27% in June, while Natural Gas rose .55%:
