Oil Springboards Off of Session Lows

Oil prices reversed course from their session lows, gaining as investors braced for strong demand for black gold and the likelihood that a key producer group won't dish out crude too fast in order to reverse initial losses stemming from China's fuel reserves. In response, December-dated crude added 48 cents, or 0.6% to settle at $84.05 a barrel.

Gold settled also closed higher to kick off November. Bullion was boosted ahead of a key Federal Reserve meeting, slated to take place later this week and shine light on the central bank's plan for tapering economic stimulus. December-dated gold jumped $11.90 or, 0.7%, to settle at $1,795.80.
