Rigging equipment is pictured in a field outside of Sweetwater TexasOil prices dipped on Tuesday, with U.S. crude hitting three-month lows, as oversupply concerns weighed on the petroleum complex ahead of data likely to show unseasonably high gasoline stocks despite the peak U.S. summer driving period. Oil prices are still up more than 60 percent from 12-year lows of around $27 a barrel hit by Brent and about $26 struck by U.S. crude in the first quarter. "Our shift to a bearish stance that was initiated more than three weeks ago is currently being fortified by fresh lows across the energy spectrum that are reflecting a major speculative exit off of the long side," said Jim Ritterbusch of Chicago-based oil markets consultancy Ritterbusch & Associates.

Italy’s Berlusconi primes potential political heir

Italian tycoon and former prime minister Berlusconi waves as he leaves the hospital after a heart surgery in MilanBy Crispian Balmer ROME (Reuters) – Ex-Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi has anointed Stefano Parisi, a former Internet executive and government economic adviser, as his political heir, giving him a mandate to relaunch Italy's splintered centre-right. Looking to build on that experience, Parisi said last week he wanted to unite Italy's disparate conservatives and has now secured the blessing of Berlusconi, who asked him carry out a profound review of his own Forza Italy (Go Italy!) party. Berlusconi, who is 79 and underwent major heart surgery in June, said in a statement on Tuesday that he wanted Parisi to "come up with a project to relaunch and renew the position of moderate Italians in the political sphere".

Wary of turmoil in holiday hotspots, Germans flock to ‘safe’ Denmark

File photo shows tourists looking at the sculpture of the Little Mermaid, inspired from a fairy tale written by Hans Christian Andersen, a famous landmark of CopenhagenBy Jacob Gronholt-Pedersen COPENHAGEN (Reuters) – Put off by militant violence and political upheaval in traditional sun-and-sea holiday hotspots like Tunisia and Turkey, German tourists are flocking to nearby Denmark this summer counting on peace and quiet within secure borders. Denmark is part of Europe's passport-free Schengen travel zone, but it reinstated temporary border controls late last year in reaction to a wave of migrants sweeping across the continent from the Middle East and North Africa. Although tightening its borders and immigrant laws risked damaging Denmark's international image as a paragon of liberal, law-abiding tolerance, it has ironically boosted tourism in the small Nordic country of 5.7 million people.
