WINNIPEG, January 9 – The following is a glance at the news moving markets globally.
– Crude oil futures dropped in early activity, as US production could undermine OPEC(Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries) efforts to scale back supplies.
On Friday analysts said they expect the US rig count to increase this year, alongside North American crude production, which is bearish.
Those increases could offset OPEC’s plan to decrease supplies of the commodity by reducing output by 1.2 million barrels a day from global oil production. Non-OPEC member Russia is also included in the proposed production reduction.
