Oil prices stable as ongoing Opec cuts countered by rising US rig drilling   Oil markets were stable on Monday as ongoing output cuts led by Opec were countered by rising US drilling activity that points to a further increase in American production.   US West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures were at $57.32 a barrel at 0749 GMT, down 4 cents from their last settlement.   Brent crude futures, the international benchmark for oil prices, were unchanged at $63.40 a barrel.   Crude prices have gained well over a third in value from their 2017 lows, largely due to production cuts by the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (Opec) and a group of non-Opec producers, including Russia, which have been in place since the start of the year.

Still not paid taxes on Bitcoin gains? I-T notice could be on the way   While virtual currencies like Bitcoin are gaining popularity, there is still lack of clarity on how they should be taxed. Many buyers of cryptocurrencies, therefore, don’t pay tax on the gains they make on selling them.   Tax experts, however, say that investors are obliged to pay tax on their gains in virtual currencies. “What investors don’t realise is that the Income Tax Act may not cover the taxation of virtual currencies specifically. But there are provisions that cover all kinds of income and gains,” says Archit Gupta, chief executive officer, ClearTax. The definition of capital assets under Section 2 (14) is broad enough to include any investment in crypto currencies. READ MORE

Nov inflation likely breached RBI's 4% target on rising food prices: Poll   India's retail inflation likely breached the central bank's 4.0 per cent medium-term target in November after unseasonably heavy rains sent food prices soaring, a Reuters poll showed.   In the poll of more than 30 economists, annual consumer inflation, due to be released on Dec. 12 at 1200 GMT, was seen surging to a 13-month high of 4.20 per cent in November from October's 3.58 per cent.   The higher inflation rate is unlikely to push the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) to change its key rate anytime soon, economists in the poll said.
