(Bloomberg) -- A panel of OPEC+ ministers couldn’t reach an agreement on whether to delay January’s oil-output increase, leaving the matter unresolved before a full meeting of the cartel and its allies on Monday.Most participants in an informal online discussion on Sunday evening supported maintaining the production curbs at current levels into the first quarter, said a delegate. Yet while Russian Deputy Prime Minister Alexander Novak spoke in favor of postponing the supply hike that’s currently scheduled to happen in the new year, the United Arab Emirates and Kazakhstan were opposed, said the delegate, asking not to be named because the talks were private.Brent oil declined 1.2% to $47.61 a barrel in trading on Monday at 8:50 a.m. in Dubai. Prices have advanced 27% this month and are set for the biggest monthly gain since May.Unless the agreement is revised this week, they will restart about 1.9 million barrels a day of halted output, potentially pushing the global market back into surplus and undermining the recent surge in crude prices.“Saudi Arabia will have to lean hard to get an agreement,” said Mohammad Darwazah, an analyst at research firm Medley Global Advisors LLC. “There have been particularly acute rumblings of dissatisfaction with the status quo from Abu Dhabi.”The Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries and its allies, a 23-nation network that pumps more than half the world’s crude, made vast production cuts during the depths of the pandemic to offset a historic collapse in fuel demand. The alliance had planned to ease some of those curbs at the start of 2021, in anticipation of a global economic recovery.Last-Minute TalksSaudi Arabia and Russia summoned a small group of OPEC+ countries for last-minute talks this weekend, in an apparent effort to forge a consensus before making a final decision at a conference scheduled for Monday and Tuesday. Despite the lack of an agreement so far, negotiations in the coming days could still result in a deal, said another delegate.There have been numerous signals that the cartel was leaning toward a delay. Last week, Algerian Energy Minister Abdelmajid Attar -- who this year holds OPEC’s rotating presidency -- told Bloomberg News that the group must remain cautious because the surge in oil prices to above $45 a barrel in New York this week could prove fragile. OPEC technical experts also considered data that pointed to the risk of a new oil surplus if the production increase goes ahead.Prior to this weekend, a clear majority of OPEC+ watchers were expecting the group to keep pumping at current levels for a few months longer due to lingering uncertainty about the strength of demand. However, the decision has been clouded by public complaints from Iraq and Nigeria, and private discord with the UAE, all of which have chafed at their output limits this year.“As usual, it will all be down to the meetings behind closed doors on Monday and Tuesday,” said Harry Tchilinguirian, head of commodity markets strategy at BNP Paribas SA. “We expect that Saudi Energy Minister Abdulaziz Bin Salman will be at the forefront of preserving group cohesion, to ultimately deliver the much expected delay to the tapering of supply cuts due next year.”(Updates with oil prices in third paragraph.)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.

(Bloomberg) -- S&P Global Inc. is in advanced talks to buy IHS Markit Ltd. for about $44 billion, according to a person familiar with the matter, amid increasing demand for data particularly from the finance industry.IHS Markit, which provides data, analytics and research was valued at $36.9 billion as of the close on Friday, after climbing to a record earlier in the week. The stock has risen 23% this year, compared with S&P Global’s 25% gain, giving it a market capitalization of $82.2 billion.An announcement could come as early as Monday, the person added, declining to be identified because the information isn’t public. Representatives for S&P Global and IHS Markit didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment.S&P’s interest follows IHS’s $9.8 billion acquisition of Markit in 2016, which combined IHS’s information services with Markit’s indexes for financial products such as credit default swaps, just as electronic trading was feeding intense demand for sets of information.The tie-up would be the year’s second-biggest deal, coming behind the $56 billion set of transactions among China’s biggest oil and gas companies to sell their pipeline networks to a new national carrier, which were finalized in July.News of the potential deal was first reported by the Wall Street Journal.

(Bloomberg) -- An eerie calm has enveloped the Treasury market, and although the worsening pandemic and updates on the U.S. economy could stir things up a bit in the days and weeks ahead, few traders expect a quick end to the boredom.Even as global stocks head for the best month on record, the U.S. bond market’s pulse has slowed significantly in recent months. The ICE BofA MOVE Index, which measures expected price swings in the Treasury market, spiked in the lead-up to the U.S. election but has since almost dwindled back to the record low reached at the end of September.Covid-19’s spread could certainly turn that around in a hurry: just witness how the MOVE index surged in March to its highest level since 2009. Traders may well find reason to react to the virus’s impact on the labor market Friday when the latest monthly U.S. payrolls report comes out, or a day earlier when weekly unemployment data is published. And who knows what Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell will say when he testifies before Congress this week?But many expect the Treasury market to simply take all this and more mostly in stride -- unless the pandemic takes an unexpected turn for the worse. For months now, a steady flow of dismal news has failed to move it much. Ten-year yields, currently at 0.84%, have swung between 0.50% and 0.97% since August.“It may remain a range-bound slog with markets waiting for the next shoe to drop regarding the virus,” said Marty Mitchell, an independent strategist. “The unemployment figure on Friday could prove weaker than expected given claims have been rising. But the overriding influence for trading will remain the virus -- with potential for headlines regarding more shutdowns and containment measures.”With Joe Biden on course to be inaugurated as the new U.S. president in January and the Fed making clear that policy will remain accommodative for years, the ICE BofA MOVE Index of Treasury volatility has dropped to 39.62. That’s close to September’s record low of 36.62 and way below the peak from March when virus concerns sent the gauge -- which is based on one-month options -- to 163.7.Ten-year Treasury yields were little changed in Asia trading on Monday while S&P 500 futures began the week higher, then slipped, as did Australian and Japanese shares. Global equities are up 13% in November as positive vaccine news helped drive expectations that a global economic recovery can pick up in 2021Treasury purchases by passive fund managers could help cap yields. The Bloomberg Barclays Treasury Index, a benchmark for many investors, will go through its monthly rebalancing on Monday, and this could extend duration by about 0.16 year, matching the August increase that was the biggest since 2009.Index rebalancing could add to recent forces that have helped keep a lid on yields. Other factors include a tempering of economic growth expectations due to surging virus cases. And with Congress unlikely to push through new fiscal stimulus measure before the end of the year, several pandemic jobless benefit programs are set to expire at the end of December -- affecting an estimated 12 million people.Gregory Faranello, head of U.S. rates at AmeriVetSecurities, has been emphasizing to his clients just how important economic data and Covid case counts are to the outlook for markets, noting that the Fed “is clearly becoming more concerned over the growing number of cases and the lack of more fiscal support.”What to WatchThe economic calendarNov. 30: MNI Chicago PMI; pending home sales; Dallas Fed manufacturing indexDec. 1: Markit U.S. manufacturing PMI; ISM manufacturing; construction spending; vehicle salesDec. 2: MBA mortgage applications; ADP employment change; Fed Beige BookDec. 3: Challenger job cuts; weekly jobless claims; Bloomberg consumer comfort; Markit US services PMI; ISM servicesDec. 4: Monthly jobs report; trade balance; factory, durable goods and capital goods ordersThe highlight of the Fed calendar is Powell’s appearance on Capitol HillDec. 1: Powell before Senate Banking Committee; Fed Governor Lael Brainard; San Francisco Fed’s Mary Daly; Chicago Fed’s Charles EvansDec. 2: Powell appears before House Financial Services Committee; New York Fed’s John WilliamsDec. 4: Fed Governor Michelle BowmanThe auction calendar:Nov. 30: 13-, 26-week billsDec. 1: 42-day, 119-day cash management bills; 52-week billsDec. 3: 4-, 8-week bills(Updates with Monday trading of stocks and bonds in Asia)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.

(Bloomberg) -- The Trump administration is poised to add chipmaker SMIC and offshore oil-and-gas explorer CNOOC to a list of firms blocked from American investment due to military ties, Reuters reported, in the latest U.S. swipe at Beijing before President-elect Joe Biden takes office.Semiconductor Manufacturing International Corp. and China National Offshore Oil Corp. are among four Chinese companies to be added to a list of firms owned or controlled by the military, Reuters reported, citing a document seen and three unidentified people familiar with the matter. Their addition -- along with China Construction Technology Co. Ltd. and China International Engineering Consulting Corp. -- would bring the total number of firms on the blacklist to 35.It wasn’t clear when the new list would be published in the Federal Register, Reuters said. The Defense Department didn’t respond to Reuters’ request for comment. CNOOC didn’t respond to emailed requests for comment. Cnooc Ltd., the company’s listed unit, fell as much as 11% in Hong Kong. China Oilfield Services Ltd., its drilling subsidiary, fell as much as 12%.“There will be huge impact on the company because the oil-and-gas value chain involves a lot of U.S. companies from upstream, mid-stream all the way to the gas side,” said Sengyick Tee, an analyst with SIA Energy. “This also means they cannot procure parts and software from U.S. companies.”A Pentagon spokesperson didn’t immediately reply to Bloomberg’s request for comment on the report. Reuters separately reported last week that the Trump administration was close to issuing a list of 89 Chinese aerospace and other companies that would be unable to access U.S. technology exports due to their military ties.President Donald Trump, a Republican, has continued to roll out punitive measures against China despite losing the U.S. presidential election earlier this month to Biden, a Democrat. The actions will make it harder for the incoming administration to de-escalate tensions with Beijing, although they will also arguably give the U.S. side more leverage in future negotiations.In a related executive order earlier this month, the U.S. said China was “increasingly exploiting” American capital for “the development and modernization of its military, intelligence, and other security apparatuses,” posing a threat to the U.S. That order prohibits investment firms and pension funds from buying and selling shares of 31 Chinese companies designated by the Pentagon since June as having military ties.In response to the previous order, the Chinese Foreign Ministry accused the U.S. of “viciously slandering” its military-civilian integration policies and vowed to protect the country’s companies. “This not only severely harms the legitimate rights and interests of Chinese companies, but also the interests of foreign investors including U.S. ones,” ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin said at the time, urging the order’s withdrawal.Exxon, ShellState-owned CNOOC, the country’s main deepwater oil and gas explorer, has ties to key global energy producers and projects. The firm is among Exxon Mobil Corp.’s partners in its Guyana project, owns a stake in a Royal Dutch Shell Plc LNG export terminal in Australia, and has a share in the U.K. North Sea’s Buzzard oil field.CNOOC’s main base of operations are the coastal waters surrounding China, which account for more than 60% of its listed company’s production, with the majority coming from the Bohai Sea near Beijing.“It will be quite negative for CNOOC as it has quite a few U.S. partners in projects alongside Bohai Bay as well as in South China Sea,” Lin Boqiang, director at the China Center for Energy Economics Research at Xiamen University, said by phoneOperations in the South China Sea, which account for about 29% of output, have at times run into controversy because China claims drilling rights in waters far from its borders, and within 200 miles of countries like Vietnam and the Philippines. The firm also owns interests in shale and deepwater projects in the U.S., accounting for production of about 67,000 barrels of oil equivalent a day, according to its website.SMIC said in a statement that it is engaged in constructive discussions with the U.S. government, adding it has no relationship with the Chinese military and doesn’t manufacture for military uses. Its shares were little changed in Hong Kong.SMIC RestrictionsIn September, the U.S. Commerce Department separately imposed export restrictions on SMIC, requiring American firms to apply for a license to send certain products to China’s largest chipmaker. SMIC and its subsidiaries present “an unacceptable risk of diversion to a military end use,” the department’s Bureau of Industry and Security wrote.SMIC represents a cornerstone in China’s vision of creating its own, world-class semiconductor industry, which the Communist Party sees as an essential foundation for a self-sufficient technology sector. The company is the country’s biggest contract manufacturer of chip and raised more than $7 billion to expand in a Shanghai stock offering in July.SMIC still has far to go to catch up to rivals such as Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co., which makes chips for Apple Inc.’s most advanced smartphones. TSMC, the world’s largest contract chipmaker, is commercializing 5 nanometer technology, at least two generations ahead of SMIC’s capabilities.A Trump administration blacklisting would make that effort more difficult -- if not impossible -- because SMIC could be barred from American suppliers such as Applied Materials Inc., which tend to make the most advanced chip-making equipment.(Updates with SMIC comment in 12th paragraph.)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.
