Meanwhile, a Reuters survey of OPEC production has signalled a 120,000 bpd drop in the cartel’s output to 31.64 mpbd in October from 31.76 mbpd in the previous month with Iraq and Saudi Arabia leading the decline.

Technicals: The contracts continue to recover well from the lows earlier in the week and are making further inroads towards upside targets at the 34-day MAs. They are 46.43 WTI; 49.39 Brent; 150.36 Dec’ Heat; 135.00 RBOB and 460.25 Gasoil. Only conclusive closes above the aforementioned levels will cement this recovery and green light targets higher.
