Saudi Arabia, one of the world's largest oil producers, last week stated that it would bring the suggestion of production cuts to the OPEC meeting early next month. Up to 1.4 mio. barrels per day could be cut by the huge organization of oil producers, if supported and implemented. Earlier today, the Russian energy minister stated that the country - a non-OPEC member, but another of the world's largest oil producers - is planning to sign a partnership agreement with OPEC next month when the parties meet around the OPEC meeting in Vienna.

In the weekly report on Friday, Baker Hughes reported an increase of 2 U.S. oil rigs to 888 which is a three-and-a-half-year high. The last 4 of 5 weeks have shown builds in the number of active oil rigs. At the same time, U.S. crude oil production is hovering around an all-time high of 11.7m barrels per day.

The week is short for the U.S. markets with Thanksgiving on Thursday followed by early close on Friday. The long weekend is traditionally one of the most heavy on traffic in the U.S. as around 48.5 mio. Americans hit the roads.

Economic data this week sees, among others, U.S. housing reports, UK inflation report hearings and ECB Account of Monetary Policy Meeting.
