With the arrival of winter proper last week, the markets saw a significant rebound. This was helped further by oil's recovery as traders finally took OPEC at its word re the production cuts, although continual increases in US volumes tempered this. The wintry weather reached Europe and there was heavy snow across The Alps. However, towards the end of the week the forecasts indicated a thaw was on its way. Sterling recovered somewhat as the Brexit debate intensified, pushing UK prices upward.

However, those happy with the risk might want to wait it out and see if there is a deal reached.
