Brent crude remained steady, rising one cent to $108.95 a barrel thanks to a positive jobs data report from the US, with talk of more stimulus measures by the eurozone to support growth.

US crude slipped 20 cents to $91.20 as the unemployment rate in the world’s biggest oil consumer rose to 8.3%, opening prospects of more monetary stimulus measures from the Federal Reserve Bank.

Meanwhile, investors expect more stimulus measures from Europe to support the debt-laden region and China to step up its monetary policy.
