Oil prices rallied after yesterday's choppy session. Kuwait has joined Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates in dismissing yesterday's rumours that OPEC+ plans to boost production at its meeting on Dec. 4.

(PPR), down one cent to 20.5 cents on 1.31 million shares, announced this morning that it has lost its NAFTA arbitration claim against the government of Canada. The company was seeking $118.9-million (U.S.) in damages.
The arbitrators took their time coming to their decision.
