Dollar Stalls Ahead of OPEC Meeting



The dollar fluctuated against the yen and euro, as traders prepared ahead of the OPEC meeting that could possibly turn financial markets and pressure the U.S. currency. The greenback was steady at 112.430 against the Japanese yen while the euro was flat at $1.0648.

The dollar index was little changed at 100.98 after declining 0.4 percent the previous day. The U.S. currency has recently stalled, as Treasury yields showed signs of peaking for now amidst purchasing by investors' month-end portfolio rebalancing. This is probably why the dollar failed to capitalise on latest positive data that showed U.S. third quarter GDP and much-stronger-than-expected November consumer confidence figures. The Canadian dollar was little changed at C$1.3432 a dollar.

The Australian dollar was flat at $0.7485 AUD, within hitting a 12-day peak of $0.7497 the previous day. The pound was fixed at $1.2490 GBP after climbing 0.6 percent the day earlier.

Oil Surges as OPEC Strikes Production Cut Deal



OPEC members managed to reach a deal to cut oil output, causing crude prices to jump more than 8% after months of struggling with declines due to market uncertainty regarding the capability of the group to reach an agreement.

The deal was made possible when Saudi Arabia and Iran, whose disputes blocked the deal which looked to end the oil glut persisting in the market, reached a compromise. Iran was allowed to raise its production, while Saudi Arabia conceded to take the lion's share of the cuts.

The oil producer cartel announced that it would reduce production by 1.2 million barrels per day from its current level of 33.6 million bpd beginning January 2017. It also expects producers who are non-OPEC members, including Russia, to join the cuts adding up to 600, 000 bpd.

The cuts were bigger than anticipated and equals around 1% of total global production. Oil prices soared and shares of oil companies surged more than 10% after the agreement was confirmed.

U.S. crude rose $4.21 or 9.3% and traded at $49.44 per barrel. Meanwhile, global benchmark Brent crude rose $4.09 or 8.8% and settled at $50.47.

Dollar Edges Down after Solid November Gains



The dollar slipped against a basket of currencies, with traders booking gains after a positive November on speculation of a stronger U.S. economy under the administration of Trump and ahead of the government payrolls report. The dollar index was down 0.4 percent to 101.06.

The pound climbed as much as nearly 1.6 percent to a three-week peak against the U.S. currency of $1.2696. The dollar retreated from a previous nine-month high against the yen at 114.82, before slipping 0.4 percent to 114.03 yen in late trading. The euro firmed after a report that the European Central Bank will continue its bond buying beyond next March and has considered to send a formal signal next week that the asset purchase program will sometime end. The dollar's weak beginning in December mirrored higher U.S. Treasury yields after a positive data on manufacturing and construction spending.

The dollar index hit a 13-1/2-year high of 102.05 the previous week, and for November it advanced 3.1 percent. The euro rose 0.6 percent at $1.0649.

British Government Unveils $634 Billion Infrastructure-Investment Plan



The U.K. mapped out its infrastructure-investment plan, disclosing 500 billion pounds or $634 billion worth of projects slated to be launched in the following years.

Government investment constitutes around 40% of the infrastructure-investment pipeline after British Finance Minister Philip Hammond detailed plans for a National Productivity Investment Fund in November estimated to amount to 23 billion pounds. Infrastructure projects included are the Thames Tideway Tunnel, smart meters and upgrading the A14 highway located in eastern England.

Funding from the private represents more than half of the pipeline to 2020-2021, aiding in delivering projects varying from transport and internet connectivity to flood defenses and housing, according to the Treasury.

In a statement, Treasury Chief Secretary David Gauke said the spending plan is a clear indication that the government is intent on ensuring that U.K.'s infrastructure is up to date.

Enhancing productivity using targeted investments was the major goal laid out by Hammond during his Autumn Statement as he readies the British economy from any Brexit-induced shocks.

Oil Prices Retreat as Supply Rises Ahead of 2017 Production Cut



Oil prices fell in early Asian trading as crude production in almost all major export regions despite a planned production cut by OPEC and Russia, raising fears that an oil glut that has persisted in the market for more than two years might extend into its third year in 2017.

International Brent crude oil futures traded down 39 cents at $54.44 per barrel, declining 0.7% from their last finish. Meanwhile, the U.S. WTI crude futures were down 47 cents or 0.9%, at $51.32 a barrel.

Traders said the decline in prices were caused by the increasing production from OPEC and Russia. The producer cartel's production has posted another record high in the previous month, scaling to 34.19 million bpd in November from the 33.82 million bpd in October. On Friday, Russia said its average daily production reached 11.21 million bpd last month, its highest daily output in nearly three decades.

Their combined output alone attributed for almost half of total global oil demand, which is currently at the 95 million bpd level.

The alarmingly high production figures comes just after OPEC and Russia struck a historic deal to cap output in 2017 which caused oil prices to rally, causing investors to worry that the planned cut will not be big enough to dent the oil glut.
