    FXStreet (Mumbai) - Brent futures trimmed losses to trade well above the key support of USD 31.16, but prices are still down 2% on the day.

    Calls for emergency meeting ignored

    OPEC secretary general was on the wires expressing the need for a OPEC and non-OPEC talks to solve the oil stock overhang. However, the markets have not paid much attention to the el-Badri’s calls. Moreover, it is well known that Saudi will be ready to cut output only if the non-OPEC suppliers agree to the same.

    As of now, the futures are trading around USD 31.40/barrel. Oil prices remain a main factor determining the risk sentiment in the financial markets.
