U.S. equity futures slipped, the yen weakened and the Norwegian krone climbed as the surprise production cut from OPEC+ sent oil prices about 7% higher.

The bumpy open to Monday trading and fears of rising prices contrasts with the upbeat tone last week that came with turmoil in the banking sector receding and cooling in a key measure of US inflation.

The group’s decision to reduce output by more than 1 million barrels a day is a jolt to markets that had been looking to a near-term peak in inflationary pressure.

Both Indian benchmark indices—Sensex and Nifty—closed the last trading session of the fiscal well above 1.5%, snapping three weeks of decline to rise the most in 23 weeks or five months.

The Indian rupee surged against the U.S. dollar on the back of foreign investment inflow and rise in domestic equities.
