    Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen was clearer than ever on Friday that the central bank was poised to raise interest rates this year, as the U.S. economy was set to bounce back from an early-year slump and as headwinds at home and abroad waned.

    Yellen spoke amid growing concern at the Fed about volatility in financial markets once it begins to raise rates, and a desire to begin coaxing sceptical investors towards accepting the inevitable: that a 6-1/2-year stretch of near-zero interest rates would soon end.

    In a speech to a business group in Providence, Rhode Island, Yellen said she expected the world's largest economy to strengthen after a slowdown due to "transitory factors" in recent months, and noted that some of the weakness might be due to "statistical noise."

    The confident tone suggested the Fed wants to set the stage as early as possible for its first rate rise in nearly a decade, with Yellen stressing that monetary policy must get out ahead of an economy whose future looks bright.

    While cautioning that such forecasting is always highly uncertain, and citing room for improvement in the labour market, the Fed chief said delaying a policy tightening until employment and inflation hit the central bank's targets risked overheating the economy.

    "For this reason, if the economy continues to improve as I expect, I think it will be appropriate at some point this year to take the initial step to raise the federal funds rate target," and begin normalizing monetary policy, Yellen told the Providence Chamber of Commerce.

    In a speech in March, Yellen said only that a rate hike "may well be warranted later this year," though the Fed was at the time giving "serious consideration" to making the move.

    Investors globally are attempting to predict when the Fed will modestly tighten policy. Most economists point to September, while traders in futures markets held firm on December.

    Ahead of a three-day U.S. holiday weekend, Treasury yields hit session highs after Yellen spoke on Friday, and short-term interest rate futures extended losses, hitting session lows. U.S. stocks were largely flat.

    "This is probably the most telegraphed Fed lift-off in some time," said Bruce Zaro, chief technical strategist at Bolton Global Asset Management. "I think they're concerned about the market's reaction - they don't want to have a period of volatility that causes the market to react in a crash-type form."

    Yellen, however, struck some familiar dovish chords, noting that the "generally disappointing pace of wage growth ... suggests that the labour market has not fully healed."

    She said less progress had been made on lifting inflation, though she said the Fed believes it will rise to the central bank's medium-term 2 percent goal as oil prices rebound and other temporary factors dissipate.

    "With the waning of the headwinds ... the U.S. economy seems well-positioned for growth," Yellen said, predicting "moderate" employment and output growth this year and beyond.

    She also reinforced the notion that rate hikes will depend on incoming economic data and that the tightening process, once it begins, is likely to be gradual.

    "Yellen believes the economy is improving and that the Fed will raise rates this year," said Wayne Kaufman, chief market analyst at Phoenix Financial Services. "It is just waiting for the right data to do that."

    West Texas Intermediate oil futures rose for the second straight session on Thursday, as concerns over a supply glut in the U.S. eased after data showed that crude inventories fell for the third consecutive week last week.

    On the New York Mercantile Exchange, crude oil for July delivery tacked on 36 cents, or 0.6%, to trade at $59.34 a barrel during European morning hours. Prices held in a range between $58.71 and $59.38.

    A day earlier, Nymex oil rallied 99 cents, or 1.71%, to end at $58.98 after the U.S. Energy Information Administration said that crude oil inventories fell by 2.7 million barrels last week to 482.2 million, compared to expectations for a drop of 1.1 million barrels to 483.8 million.

    Supplies at Cushing, Oklahoma, the key delivery point for Nymex crude, fell by 241,000 barrels, while domestic crude oil production fell by 112,000 barrels to 9.26 million barrels a day, the EIA said.

    U.S. oil futures have been well-supported in recent weeks as an ongoing collapse in rigs drilling for oil in the U.S. added to expectations that shale oil production has peaked and may start falling in the coming months.

    According to industry research group Baker Hughes (NYSE:BHI), the number of rigs drilling for oil in the U.S. fell by 8 last week to 660, the 23rd straight week of declines and the lowest level since September 2010.

    Oil traders have been paying close attention to the shrinking rig count in recent months for signs it will eventually reduce the glut of crude flowing into the market.

    But market analysts also warned that the recent rally in the oil market could prompt some producers to dial up their output if prices hold above more than $60 a barrel.

    Meanwhile, the U.S. dollar index, which measures the greenback’s strength against a trade-weighted basket of six major currencies, was down 0.3% at 95.37, holding below Wednesday’s highs of 95.94.

    The greenback weakened after the minutes from the Federal Reserve’s April meeting published Wednesday showed that most officials believed a June rate hike would be premature, after recent data showed that the economy grew just 0.1% in the first quarter.

    According to the minutes, the timing of a rate hike "would depend on the evolution of economic conditions and the outlook".

    Later in the day, the U.S. was to release a string of reports including initial jobless claims, existing home sales and a look at manufacturing activity in the Philadelphia region.

    Investors were also turning their attention to Friday’s U.S. inflation data and a speech by Fed Chair Janet Yellen for fresh indications on how the economy is performing.

    Elsewhere, on the ICE Futures Exchange in London, Brent oil for July delivery advanced 26 cents, or 0.4%, to trade at $65.29 a barrel. On Wednesday, Brent prices jumped $1.01, or 1.58%, to close at $65.03.

    The spread between the Brent and the WTI crude contracts stood at $5.95 a barrel early on Wednesday, compared to $6.05 by close of trade on Wednesday.

    Data released earlier showed that China's HSBC Flash Manufacturing Purchasing Managers' Index inched up to 49.1 this month from 48.9 in April, missing expectations for an increase to 49.3 and below the 50-point level that separates growth in activity from contraction.

    The disappointing data added to speculation policymakers will have to introduce further easing measures to jumpstart the economy amid lackluster growth.

    Since November, the People's Bank of China has introduced a series of stimulus measures, including lowering interest rates three times and cutting the reserve requirement ratios of major banks twice, in order to spur economic activity and boost growth.

    On the New York Mercantile Exchange, natural gas for delivery in June was up 2.23% to $2.986 per million British thermal units. Prices were at around $2.955 prior to the release of the supply data.

    In its weekly report, the Energy Information Administration said natural gas storage in the week ended May 15 rose by 92 billion cubic feet, compared to expectations for an increase of 97 bcf.

    Total U.S. natural gas storage stood at 1,989 bcf the EIA said. Stocks were 738 bcf higher than last year at this time and 35 bcf below the five-year average of 2,024 bcf for this time of year.

    Meanwhile, updated weather forecasting models pointed to hotter-than-normal temperatures on the East Coast through May 29, boosting early summer cooling demand for the fuel.

    Demand for natural gas tends to rise in the summer months as warmer temperatures increase the need for gas-fired electricity to power air conditioning.

    Approximately 49% of U.S. households use natural gas for heating, according to the Energy Department.

    Elsewhere on the Nymex, crude oil for delivery in June was up 2.39% at $60.39 a barrel, while heating oil for June delivery rallied 1.90% to $1.983 per gallon.

    West Texas Intermediate oil futures pushed higher on Wednesday, amid speculation weekly supply data due later in the session will show U.S. crude inventories fell at a faster pace than expected last week.

    On the New York Mercantile Exchange, crude oil for July delivery tacked on 78 cents, or 1.35%, to trade at $58.77 a barrel during European morning hours. Prices held in a range between $58.11 and $58.73.

    A day earlier, Nymex oil plunged $2.25, or 3.74%, to end at $57.99, as a broadly stronger U.S. dollar weighed.

    Wednesday's government report was expected to show that U.S. crude oil stockpiles fell by 1.0 million barrels last week, while gasoline stockpiles were forecast to increase by 0.8 million barrels.

    After markets closed Tuesday, the American Petroleum Institute, an industry group, said that U.S. crude inventories dropped by 5.2 million barrels in the week ended May 15.

    U.S. oil futures have been well-supported in recent weeks as an ongoing collapse in rigs drilling for oil in the U.S. added to expectations that shale oil production has peaked and may start falling in the coming months.

    According to industry research group Baker Hughes (NYSE:BHI), the number of rigs drilling for oil in the U.S. fell by 8 last week to 660, the 23rd straight week of declines and the lowest level since September 2010.

    Oil traders have been paying close attention to the shrinking rig count in recent months for signs it will eventually reduce the glut of crude flowing into the market.

    But market analysts also warned that the recent rally in the oil market could prompt some producers to dial up their output if prices hold above more than $60 a barrel.

    Elsewhere, on the ICE Futures Exchange in London, Brent oil for July delivery advanced 94 cents, or 1.47%, to trade at $64.96 a barrel. On Tuesday, Brent prices lost $2.25, or 3.4%, to close at $64.02.

    The spread between the Brent and the WTI crude contracts stood at $6.19 a barrel early on Wednesday, compared to $6.03 by close of trade on Tuesday.

    Meanwhile, the U.S. dollar index, which measures the greenback’s strength against a trade-weighted basket of six major currencies, was up 0.3% to hit 95.67 early on Wednesday.

    The greenback was boosted after data on Tuesday showed that U.S. housing starts in April rose to the highest level in nearly seven-and-a-half years, while building permits also jumped.

    The upbeat data boosted hopes for a rebound in second quarter economic growth after a sharp slowdown in the first three months of the year.

    Market players looked ahead to the minutes of the Federal Reserve’s April meeting, due for release later Wednesday, as well as a speech by Fed Chair Janet Yellen on Friday, for fresh indications on the timing of an initial rate hike.
