The markets bounced higher on Wednesday morning amid increased volatility and higher oil prices as the war between Russia and Ukraine intensifies — and more in Wednesday’s stock market recap.
OPEC and its oil-producing allies, including Russia, decided not to add to April’s output following a recent meeting.
This news caused oil to rise above $112 per barrel as fears concerning supply shortages grow.
Energy names like Chevron Corp. (NYSE: CVX) and Exxon Mobil Corp. (NYSE: XOM) also moved higher as a result.
Exxon even announced it would exit all of its oil and gas operations in Russia and halt new investment there, sending shares 1.5% higher in premarket trading on Wednesday morning.
