• The OPEC is concerned by the drop in oil prices - trading near multi-year lows - and is ready to talk to other producers, an article in an OPEC publication issued on Monday said.
• The U.S. oil industry pumped less crude than initially estimated this year, according to new government data that offered the clearest look yet at the impact of drillers' retrenchment in response to collapsing prices.
• The Monday's government data showed gross domestic product of India expanded at an annual 7 percent rate in the April-June quarter, matching China, but slower than provisional growth of 7.5 percent in the previous quarter
Gold:Gold steadied on Monday, bouncing up from session lows as oil prices rallied and the U.S. dollar fell, after bullion felt earlier pressure on indications the Federal Reserve may still raise interest rates this year, despite recent market turmoil. Support from rallying oil prices came after spot gold fell 0.7 percent as investors focused on the Fed, which left open the possibility of a September rate rise at a central banking conference at Jackson Hole, Wyoming, on the weekend. Several officials, however, indicated that prolonged financial market turmoil might delay such a move. Fed Vice Chairman Stanley Fischer said on Saturday that U.S. inflation was likely to rebound as pressure from the dollar fades, allowing for a gradual rise in rates. World stock indexes edged lower amid persistent investor concerns about slowing growth in China and the prospect of higher U.S. interest rates. The market is particularly awaiting Friday's U.S. non-farm payrolls report for August, a key economic indicator. Hedge funds and money managers more than doubled bullish bets in COMEX gold in the week ended Aug. 25.

Oil futures soared on Monday for a third consecutive day, rising more than 8 percent, as a downward revision of U.S. crude production data and OPEC's readiness to talk with other producers helped extend the biggest three-day price surge in 25 years. U.S. crude oil prices have skyrocketed more than $10 a barrel in three days, erasing the month's declines as a series of relatively small-scale supply disruptions and output risks prompted bearish traders to take profits on short positions, which had been near a record a week ago. On Monday, prices fell initially but reversed course mid-morning. The three-day gains were more than the 20 percent mark that often signals a bull market. Even so, few were prepared to call a definitive end to the slump. While some analysts have been expecting prices to rebound after a onethird slump since late June, most have been shocked by the whiplash of the past few days, and wondered whether it was an overreaction to headlines. On Monday, some cited a commentary in the latest OPEC Bulletin publication suggesting the group may be increasingly willing to talk to other producers about curbing output, even though it was broadly in line with previous comments. There has been no indication

U.S. natural gas futures settled 1 percent lower on Monday on expectations that high summer temperatures will peak this week, paring demand for air conditioning from gas-powered electricity over the next fortnight. In a report circulated earlier on Monday, Viswanath said the abrupt end of the summer heat wave suggested the potential for "blow-out end-of-season inventory restocking." MDA Weather Services also noted generally cooler temperatures in
