    U.S. Stocks Gain as Oil Prices Rallied



    U.S. stocks advanced while oil prices surged. The gains drove both oil and energy firms in the S&P 500 into positive territory for September.

    The Dow Jones Industrial Average increased by 0.6 percent to 18339.24. The S&P 500 rose by 0.5 percent to 2171.37 while the Nasdaq Composite jumped by 0.2 percent to 5318.55. U.S.-traded crude oil surged by 5.3 percent to $47.05 a barrel after reports that the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries had reached a deal to reduce crude-oil production in order to lift the price of petroleum. The S&P 500's energy firms jumped by 4.3 percent and has been the best-performing sector in the index. Shares of Exxon Mobil advanced by 4.4 percent to $86.90 while Chevron gained 3.2 percent to 102.15. Stocks of biotech declined which limited the advances of the Nasdaq Composite. The Nasdaq biotechnology index slid by 0.9 percent. Nike dropped by 3.8 percent and was the largest decliner in the Dow industrials.

    Malaysia Manufacturing PMI Continues To Contract



    The manufacturing sector in Malaysia remained in contraction in September, albeit at a slower pace, the latest survey from Nikkei showed on Friday with a manufacturing PMI score of 48.6.

    That's up from 47.4 in August, although it remains beneath the boom-or-bust line of 50 that separates expansion from contraction.

    Individually, production fell to its weakest rate in 11 months, while
    new orders were at their slowest pace since May 2015.

    Input price inflation fell to match the lowest figure on record for the survey.

    Dollar Gains Against Yen After OPEC Deal



    The U.S. dollar has reached an eight-day high against the Japanese yen due to the reduced appetite of investors for the safe-haven currency, following the OPEC deal where they agreed to cut the production of oil. OPEC has agreed to modest reduction of oil output as the group's leader, Saudi Arabia, softened its position on Iran.

    The greenback last increased against the yen by 0.44 percent at 101.09 yen after it reached an eight-day high of 101.84 yen. The euro was last up at $1.1245 against the U.S. dollar, which reversed earlier losses as analysts claim that the reduced concerns regarding the European banking sector has boosted the currency. The dollar index, last decreased by 0.09 percent at 95.344. According to analysts, the gains followed higher chances that the Federal Reserve will increase rates in December.

    Traders see a 57.4 percent likelihood that the Fed will raise rates in December, according to CME Group's FedWatch program.

    Oil Prices Jump on U.S. Crude Supply Data



    Oil prices rose following a report that U.S. crude stocks may have dropped for the fifth week in a row, however, contracts continued to be close to the $50-per-barrel mark where most traders presently perceive a fair price for crude.

    U.S. WTI oil futures traded up 49 cents or 1% from their previous finish at $49.18 a barrel while the benchmark Brent crude futures were up 42 cents or 0.8% at $51.29 a barrel.

    Traders state that the surge in prices was mostly due to a report by the American Petroleum Institute on Tuesday, revealing that U.S. crude supplies most likely dropped for the fifth consecutive week, falling by 7.6 million barrels. The U.S. EIA is scheduled to release official inventory figures on Wednesday. Analysts are expecting a supply accumulation of 2.6 million barrels during the previous week.

    Replacement Samsung Note 7 Unit Catches Fire on U.S. Plane



    A replacement Samsung Galaxy Note 7 device, which has been declared safe from overheating by Samsung Electronics Co., reportedly started emitting smoke and caught fire on a Southwest Airlines Plane on Wednesday. The airline confirmed that its flight scheduled to travel from Kentucky to Maryland was evacuated before its take-off due to the incident.

    Passenger Brian Green, the owner of the phone, said the Note 7 was a replacement unit issued on September 21. He also said the device was powered down and not charging when it started overheating inside his pocket and started emitting a thick smoke after he tossed it on the floor of the aircraft.

    The smartphone maker announced a worldwide recall of about 2.5 million units of its Note 7 smartphones last month due to battery problems that caused some handsets to catch fire, but Samsung said it has identified and fixed the issues.

    Samsung Electronics said it was working to retrieve the device and determine the cause. Meanwhile, Federal Aviation Administration confirmed in a statement that a Samsung phone had caused the smoke on the U.S. flight and that it was looking into the incident. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is also currently investigating the report.
