Overall gains remained limited as prospects of easing sanctions on Iran and Venezuela offset the narrative of tightening supply. Oil prices received some support after China announced new steps to bolster its flagging economy and struggling stock market, helping to alleviate fuel demand concerns. China approved the launch of 37 retail funds over the weekend and also halved the stamp duty on stock trading in the latest attempt to boost struggling markets. 

The new measures to woo investors came as data showed China's industrial profits extended a slump into a seventh month. Meanwhile, there are reports of the U.S. and Iran holding talks to revive the nuclear deal. Speculation is also rife that the U.S. could ease sanctions on Venezuela in a bid to boost supply. Also, concerns about China's economic outlook counterbalanced the effects of supply reductions from OPEC+ members such as Saudi Arabia and Russia. On the monetary policy front, Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell said that inflation remains too high and that the central bank is prepared to raise rates further if appropriate.
