"Now there's a surprise! Oil prices surged as much as 7% overnight, their biggest gain in more than five months, after the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries signalled it could agree to limit production this November. News of a possible breakthrough among OPEC members, following months of false starts and Iraq's stated determination to claw back lost production, caught many traders by surprise during afternoon trading on Wall Street. The group proposed cutting its collective output to between 32.5 million barrels a day and 33 million barrels a day, down from August levels of 33.2 million barrels a day, national oil ministers said. The final details of the agreement, however, will not be available until November, which begs the question whether it can actually be depended on to reduce the current global supply glut. Most remain sceptical that OPEC members will comply with production cuts or that enforcement proposals will be capable of punishing defaulters. After all, members compete for market share against each other, and against US and other producers, with Iran, Libya and Nigeria having already been clear on their ambition to increase their output. While market traders appear to be adopting a 'believe it when I see it' attitude, OPEC at least has demonstrated it still holds the capacity to surprise, which may be enough to see crude futures breach US$50/bbl in coming days and for energy stocks to go beyond the gains made during overnight trading. The news was enough to keep all the principal US indices in the positive, with the Dow for once leading the charge as the tech-heavy NASDAQ trailed into third place. Traders also responded to the Bank of France Chief, Francois Villeroy de Galhau, providing his opinion that EU economic policy continues to lags behind ECB monetary policy, by concluding that if such fears spread to the Euro itself, the Fed would likely find itself unable to raise rates anytime soon without spiking a particularly uncomfortable US$ surge. Asian equities across the board also rode higher on the back of OPEC and the US markets, with Japan leading the way followed by the commodity-heavy ASX. Europe can confidently be expected to follow suit this morning, again as energy shares lead the way, with the FTSE-100 seen opening some 70 points up in early trade. UK investors will also be keeping an eye open this morning for Bank of England lending figures, followed later this afternoon by US final 4Q GDP data as well as a scheduled speech from the Fed's Neel Kashkari. UK earnings or trading updates are also expected from Atkins (ATK.L), CMC Markets (CMCX.L), Daily Mail & General Trust (DMGT.L), Imperial Brands (IMB.L), Lekoil (LEK.L), Merlin Entertainments (MERL.L) and Tiziana Life Sciences (TILS.L)." - Barry Gibb, Research Analyst

"Having dissipated the tensions that surrounded last week’s central bank meetings, a feeling of anti-climax has rather pervaded the international equity markets. Traders largely got what they expected, although Japan at least made an effort to search deep within its policy ‘bag of tricks’ for something to undermine the crippling strength of the Yen. The trouble is, with Clinton and Trump now standing neck-and-neck in the polls, the uncertainties ahead of November 8th leave global forex traders’ with only the Japanese currency as a genuine default option, meaning there really is almost nothing Governor Haruhiko Kuroda can do for the time being that will have the effect he desires. Meanwhile, looking to set sentiment, investors focussed in on the oil price. Much of the optimism that surrounded media gossip about a production cap being put in place disappeared on Friday during New York trading, after Saudi Arabia stated it did not expect OPEC and other leading voices, such as Russia, to secure a deal this Wednesday when they meet at the Algerian energy conference. Clearly, with lost Algerian and Nigerian port capacity now slowly coming back on stream, even if they are unable to formally conclude some binding structure they will still probably indicate their willingness to keep talking for fear of oversupply otherwise pushing crude prices back to US$30/bbl once again. Such talk was enough to push all the principal US indices into the red as weak energy stock dragged all behind them while traders also cashed in a little of their recent tech rally gains. Asia followed suit, with all of the region’s major bourses also closing in the negative, with the Nikkei hurt the most as the cost of unabated Yen strength left its mark. Equities in London are seen following this same pattern, with the FTSE-100 seen dropping some 30 points in early trade as investors also reflect on media reports carried by the Financial Times, amongst others, that the UK Government’s stance on Brexit appears to be hardening. International trade secretary, Liam Fox, is reportedly set to advocate that the UK pushes ahead to become an independent member of the WTO and, in so doing steer directly away from ‘soft landing’ negotiations to remain within the EU’s customs union. This will send a shiver down the spine of UK economists, who will be listening intently to the major speech he is due to make to the WTO tomorrow for any suggestions he makes regarding the UK’s wish to negotiate directly with other countries once Article 50 has been triggered. Data watchers will be anticipating UK releases from the BBA and CBI this morning, while the ECB’s Mario Draghi will also be delivering his quarterly testimony to the European Parliament. UK corporates including Carnival (CCL.L), City of London Group (CIN.L) and Petrel Resources (PET.L) are due to report. Later today, the focus will move to the US, where Clinton and Trump are due to screen their first live televised debate." - Barry Gibb, Research Analyst
