  • Monetary policy decisions are due in Indonesia, South Korea and South Africa on Thursday.

Oil Prices Rise

Oil prices rose slightly on Monday as Chinese industrial output and retail data topped expectations, but gains were capped by overall figures showing the country's slowest quarterly economic growth in decades.

Brent crude futures rose 0.6% to US$67.12 a barrel, while US crude was up 0.3%, at US$60.40 a barrel.

Both contracts last week posted their biggest weekly gains in three weeks on cuts in US oil production and diplomatic tensions in the Middle East.

Asian and early European trading was boosted by the more positive Chinese economic data, which may indicate early success in government stimulus efforts and potentially more oil demand in the world's number two economy.

Speaking of crude oil, catch Vijay Bhambwani talk about the impact of hike in excise duty and cess on fuel in India.

As per him, trading in crude oil offers excellent opportunities in nearly all market conditions due to its unique standing within the world's economic and political systems.
