Yesterday’s trading session was devoid of any major data releases, however the huge rally in oil has been the main catalyst for most of the moves in markets over the past 24 hours. It all started just before I posted yesterday morning with the release of a joint statement from the energy ministers of Saudi Arabia and Russia concluding that the current production cuts agreement should be extended until Q1 2018.WTI and Brent jumped over 1.5% on the news and then continued to rally for most of the session gaining over 3% at one point. Prices have eased a little over the past few hours however, capping the gains to 2%. Copper (+1%), Aluminium (+0.9%) and gold (+0.25%) have followed the move in oil, but iron ore has been one exception, down 0.9%, closing the day at $60.8.Equities also benefited from the move with energy, materials and financial sectors leading the gains on both side of the Atlantic.
