Oil Extends Gains On Vaccine Cheer

Oil prices rose more than 1 percent on Tuesday to extend gains from the previous session as positive news about a potential coronavirus vaccine raised hopes of a swifter global economic recovery.

Benchmark Brent crude climbed 1.4 percent to $42.98 per barrel, while West Texas Intermediate crude futures were up 1.1 percent at $40.73.

After Pfizer reported that its coronavirus vaccine is more than 90 percent effective, U.S. President-elect Joe Biden heralded the positive new development in the race for a vaccine, but said it will still be several months before most of the country is inoculated.

The results were based on the first interim efficacy analysis conducted on November 8, 2020 by an external, independent Data Monitoring Committee from the phase 3 clinical study. The Committee has not reported any serious safety concerns.

Markets are also reacting to reports suggesting that OPEC and its Russia-led allies would roll over the current cuts for another quarter to the end of March to balance the market.

Saudi Arabia’s Energy Minister, Prince Abdulaziz bin Salman, said on Monday that the current deal could be tweaked if there was consensus among members of the group.

President Trump will set up a so-called leadership PAC that will allow him to fundraise and maintain his hold on the Republican Party even after he departs the White House.

Trump campaign communications director Tim Murtaugh told Fox News on Tuesday that “the president always planned to do this, win or lose, so he can support candidates and issues he cares about, such as combating voter fraud.”

The announcement of the leadership political action committee could come as early as this week.

Leadership committees, a common vehicle for many politicians, are allowed by law to accept contributions up to $5,000 per year per donor. They can also accept donations from other PACs. Leadership PACs can spend unlimited amounts of money to help other candidates. And the money they raise can also be used for pay for travel, consultants and staff, and polling.

Word of the PAC was first reported by the New York Times and confirmed by Fox News.
