Why Oil Prices Jumped

Following a 5-percent plunge on Friday, oil prices recovered early on Monday, rising by more than 2 percent as reports emerged that OPEC and its allies may discuss and even agree to deepen their production cuts to rebalance the market and support prices.

At 10:46 a.m. EST on Monday, WTI Crude was up 1.54 percent at US$56.02, and Brent Crude was trading up 1.26 percent at US$61.25, after prices had plunged on Friday on rumors that the cartel and its Russia-led partners in the OPEC+ coalition were unwilling to deepen the current cuts.
