Matt Mitchell scored 19 points and Jordan Schakel added 16 for No. 19 San Diego State, which beat UNLV 71-62 Wednesday night to clinch the Mountain West Conference regular-season title for the second straight year. Nathan Mensah scored 14 points for the Aztecs (20-4, 14-3 MWC), who used a 14-0 run spanning halftime to take control and win their 11th straight game. With its NCAA Net Ranking at a season-high No. 17, SDSU appears to have done enough to get an at-large berth in the NCAA Tournament if it doesn’t win the conference tourney and secure the MWC’s automatic bid.
(Bloomberg) -- Oil traded above $61 a barrel as investors waited for the result of a critical OPEC+ policy meeting later Thursday with no clear steer on just how much supply the cartel will return to a fast-tightening market.“The outcome of today’s OPEC+ meeting is obviously key for market direction,” said Warren Patterson, head of commodities strategy at ING Bank NV, who expects a rise of 1.5 million barrels a day, including the restoration of voluntary reductions by Saudi Arabia. “The market can easily absorb this additional supply, in fact it would be able to absorb even more,” he said.West Texas Intermediate was 0.8% higher after rising 2.6% Wednesday, when prices got a lift from a record fall in U.S. fuel inventories, while Brent also advanced. Saudi Arabia and Russia, the most influential OPEC+ members, held talks on Wednesday seeking common ground on production as Riyadh urges caution but Moscow seeks to increase supplies, according to a delegate.Crude has surged this year after the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries and its allies slashed collective output to drive a rebalancing of the pandemic-roiled market. The aggressive supply management has helped to drain inventories, while worldwide demand recovers with the roll-out of vaccines. That’s spurred widespread expectations that the single largest actor in the global energy market will now loosen the taps.See also: OPEC+ Silence Has Oil Market Second-Guessing Next MoveVeteran OPEC-watchers still expect some extra barrels from the group, and there’s little chance output will be held at current levels. There are two elements to its debate: first, will the cartel proceed with a 500,000 barrel-a-day collective output hike in April? And second, how will Saudi Arabia phase out the extra cut of 1 million barrels a day it’s been making voluntarily?ING’s Patterson expects that OPEC+ will deliver on both of those components.Heading into the meeting, traders will be mindful that Saudi Arabia has developed a liking for bullish surprises. Energy Minister Prince Abdulaziz bin Salman triggered a surge in prices at the January session by springing a unilateral production cut on an unsuspecting market. Citigroup Inc. has advised its clients not to make bets on this OPEC meeting as “there are too many wildcards,” according to Ed Morse, global head of commodities research.Russian Deputy Prime Minister Alexander Novak outlined his position on Wednesday, saying that while there are many risks including lockdowns, “if we look at the situation, it is much better than a year ago, than in the autumn.”The backdrop to the gathering is a slew of indicators that energy consumption is on the mend in key economies, alongside pockets of lockdown-related weakness. Among recent positive figures, data showed U.S. commutes are slowly returning to normal, and predictions that India’s fuel demand will hit a record. At the same time, Europe’s roads are still quieter than normal.U.S. government figures on Wednesday showed gasoline inventories sank 13.6 million barrels to 243 million barrels last week after a freeze disrupted the refining sector. At the same time, holdings of crude oil expanded.Brent’s prompt timespread was at 51 cents a barrel in backwardation on Thursday. While that remains a bullish pattern -- with near-dated pries above those further out -- it is down from 67 cents on Monday.For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.
The Democratic-controlled U.S. House of Representatives passed a flagship election reform bill on Wednesday that would update voting procedures and require states to turn over the task of redrawing congressional districts to independent commissions. The legislation, numbered "H.R. 1" for the importance Democrats attach to it, "is designed to restore the voices of Americans who felt left out and locked out for too long," its original sponsor, Representative John Sarbanes, said in remarks outside the U.S. Capitol before the vote. The bill is one of many the House Democrats are voting on early in the Congress on a number of priorities, such as lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender rights, policing and the environment.
