Oil recovered ground after U.S. President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin agreed to talks to stabilize energy markets.
Trump and Putin agreed during a phone call to have their top energy officials discuss stabilizing oil markets, the Kremlin said.
“Oil prices are clawing back from a near 18-year low on hopes that oversupply concerns may finally see some relief,” said Edward Moya, senior market analyst at broker OANDA.
“Much of the focus has fallen on a key call between the Presidents of the United States and Russia.”
