Oil, S&P 500 Futures Pare Losses On Obama Speech

U.S. crude-oil futures pared losses late Wednesday after U.S. President Barack Obama called for diplomacy in dealing with Syria and its recent use of chemical weapons but kept open the possibility of taking military action against the country. Crude oil for October delivery fell 65 cents, or 0.6%, to $106.74 a barrel in electronic trade. Oil had traded at $107.09 a barrel as Obama began to speak in a televised address from the White House. Futures for the Standard & Poor's 500 Index also came off lows, moving down less than 1 point to 1,682.20. The U.S. dollar held largely to gains against major rivals, and Japanese stocks extended their advances, pushing the Nikkei Stock Average up 0.6% to 14,507.04.Copyright © 2013 MarketWatch, Inc....
