TODAY OIL NEWS UPDATES( commoditybazaar.com)

Oil prices rose to their highest level since November 2018 on Monday, driven upwards by OPEC’s ongoing supply cuts, U.S. sanctions against Iran and Venezuela, and strong U.S. jobs data.

International benchmark futures were at $70.65 per barrel at 0441 GMT on Monday, up 31 cents, or 0.4 percent from their last close.

U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude were up 31 cents, or 0.5 percent, at $63.39 per barrel.

Brent and WTI both hit their highest since November at $70.76 and $63.48 a barrel, respectively, early on Monday.

“Brent prices increased more than 30 percent year-to-date as OPEC+ continued to cut supply for four months in a row and optimism over U.S.-China trade talks helped to buoy the demand outlook,” U.S. bank J.P.Morgan said in a note.
