As quoted in the market news:

Brent November crude rose $1.14 to $110.95 a barrel by 11:58 a.m. EDT (1558 GMT), having reached $111.47.

Prices slipped to $108.78 in Monday’s session, but that was well above Brent’s six-week low of $107.10 hit last Thursday and did not threaten a test of support at the 100-day moving average, a technical indicator closely watched by traders.

U.S. November crude was up 67 cents at $92.60 a barrel, off its $93.20 session peak.

Monday’s dip to $91.06 by U.S. crude did not threaten its $90.66 low from last Thursday, which was the weakest price since early August.
