Moreover, the possibility that OPEC and non-OPEC producers will finally agree to a production freeze at their next meeting on March 20 is also strengthening investors’ confidence. At the moment, four large commodity’s producers among which are Saudi Arabia and Russia, intend to limit the oil supply at the January levels.

Positive news from China seems to add the support to the world’s most traded commodity also as Chinese government voiced its plans to emphasize the growth over the economy restructuring. The target for 2016 was firmly set between 6.5% and 7% when the National People’s Congress was held this weekend.

A number of measures are set to be taken, including tax cuts which will allow the local companies more fund to invest. A broad social financing measures will also be taken to support the slowing down world’s second largest economy.
