WCS for June delivery in Hardisty, Alberta, traded between $14.80 and $14.55 a barrel under WTI, according to brokerage CalRock, tightening from the previous day when it traded between $14.90 and $14.80 a barrel under the benchmark. Global oil prices fell 4%, extending steep losses from the previous session after the U.S. Federal Reserve raised interest rates and as investors fretted about the economy.
