    • Oil and stocks got a big early lift on renewed rumors of cooperation between Russia and OPEC on production cuts.
    • Four OPEC delegates, however, say they've heard nothing about any plans for talks, reports Bloomberg, which notes significant obstacles to an agreement - including Saudi Arabia's desire to hold onto market share, and Russia's inability to cut production during the winter months. OPEC next meets in June.
    • Up nearly 8% earlier, oil has pared back to a 3.4% gain. USO +3.4%. The XLE has trimmed its advance, now up 1.75%, and the major averages have moved into the red. S&P 500 (SPY -0.1%), DJIA (DIA -0.2%), Nasdaq (QQQ -0.1%).

    • The S&P 500 (SPY -0.1%) and DJIA (DIA -0.3%) remain near flat, and the Nasdaq (QQQ -0.9%) modestly lower after the FOMC considerably softens its recent hawkish tone.

    • Gold adds $6 per ounce to $1,121 - right about its highest level since late October. GLD flat on the session.

    • Sharply lower all day, oil has turned higher by $0.68 per barrel to $32.10 despite bearish inventory data from the EIA. Alongside the big surge in inventories, however, the EIA says U.S. production edged lower by 14K to 9.22M barrels per day. The peak in output was last April at 9.7M. USO +4%
    • It's not much, but it's the trend that matters, says one industry watcher.
    • The big move in oil has the XLE higher by 1.9%, and the S&P 500 (SPY +0.5%) and DJIA (DIA +0.3%) both in the green from earlier near 1% losses. The Nasdaq (QQQ -0.5%) is rallying too, but still in the red as Apple tumbles 5%.

    • Holding modest losses for most of the session, the major averages are now off more than 1% as oil (USO -6.8%) gives back a big chunk of its gains from late last week. S&P 500 (SPY -1.4%), Nasdaq 100 (QQQ -1.3%).
    • Energy (XLE -3.9%) is naturally leading today's selling, but the financials (XLF -1.9%) are struggling as well. This just in: the XLF's 12.4% loss YTD is greater than the XLE (down 11.2%).
