Oil prices traded higher on Monday as positive data from China outweighed the country's slowing economy, providing hopes that demand for oil will remain intact.

New York-traded West Texas Intermediate crude futures gained 16 cents, or 0.3%, to $60.37 a barrel by 7:38 AM ET (11:38 GMT), while Brent crude futures, the benchmark for oil prices outside the U.S., traded up 17 cents, or 0.3%, to $66.89.

Despite the fact that the Chinese economy registered its slowest growth in 27 years, better-than-expected increases in industrial output, retail sales and capital spending, boosted hopes that the world’s second largest economy may be stabilizing, supporting demand for oil.

With regard to the 6.2% growth seen in the second quarter, its slowest since the first quarter of 1992, analysts suggested that Beijing may also step up support measures that could be positive for oil.
