Oil Edges Lower on Profit Taking After Inventory Draw

Oil prices fell on Thursday on profit-taking after markets rallied the previous day due to a draw in U.S. stocks and an expectation of an OPEC-led cut in production.

U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude oil futures were trading at $51.26 per barrel at 0648 GMT, down 34 cents from their last close.

International Brent crude futures were trading at $52.41 per barrel, down 26 cents.
