In the global market, crude oil approached two-month lows after Saudi Arabia indicated a possible supply increase.

Brent crude futures traded at $76.53 per barrel after dropping more than 4 percent on October 23 to $75.88, their lowest since September 7.

Crude slid after Saudi Arabia said it could increase supply quickly if needed, easing concerns ahead of US sanctions on Iran.
