Oil prices were mixed with traders optimistic over falling US production, although they remain on edge as analysts warn of continued volatility. WTI jumped USD 1.57 and Brent crude gained USD 2.24 on Friday after data showed another drop in the number of oil rigs in operation in the United States.

Japan’s Nikkei share average rose to a near eight-year high, helped by Wall Street’s gains, while investors digested weaker-than-expected domestic growth data.

The Nikkei rose 0.8 percent to 18,031.84 points at midday, after reaching as high as 18,074.26 earlier, the highest level since July 2007. Japan’s economy rebounded from recession in the final quarter of last year but growth was weaker than expected as household and corporate spending disappointed, underlining the challenge premier Shinzo Abe faces in shaking off decades of stagnation.
