“We can be a little bit optimistic on the economic recovery, and of course on China and the U.S.,” said Ken Hasegawa, energy trading manager at Newedge Group in Tokyo to Bloomberg.
“The oil market is trending to the upside.” he added.

“Things are looking up” for the global economy, al-Falih, Saudi Arabian Oil Co.’s chief executive said in an interview at the World Economic Forum and was quoted by Bloomberg as saying.
“We have bottomed out, and we are coming out of the economic doldrums that we have suffered from since 2007.” he added.
