Talk that Saudi Arabia has its sights on $80-$100 a barrel oil again ignited a fierce rally in commodities and resource stocks on Thursday, though the potential boost to inflation globally put some pressure on fixed-income assets.

A year to the day before Britain is scheduled to leave the EU, PM Theresa May heads off on a tour of a deeply divided country.
