Prices have been trapped in a tight range in recent weeks as rising US production has erased the effects of output cuts. Saudi Arabia and Russia agreed earlier this week that production cuts needed to be extended for a period of nine months until March 2018. BUY CRUDE OIL MAY 2017 @ 3170 SL 3130 TGT 3220-3280 .MCX.
