Oil prices bounded up for the second day in a row, on reports that OPEC+ is considering large-scale production cuts -- though only if some of the cuts are made by countries outside the alliance. In a series of tweets yesterday, U.S. President Donald Trump claimed to have brokered a deal between Saudi Arabia and Russia to deliver cuts of 10 million to 15 million barrels a day, or an unprecedented 10 to 15 per cent of global supply. Saudi state media then reported that the kingdom has called an emergency OPEC+ meeting to discuss the cuts. The meeting will be held by videoconference on Monday, April 6, according to Russia's RIA news agency.
