Wall Street ended higher on Wednesday after an OPEC agreement to limit crude output fuelled a rally in oil and more than offset nervousness about a tight race for the U.S. presidency. The energy index had its best day since January, climbing 4.34 percent after OPEC sources said the group reached a deal to cut its oil production for the first time since 2008. Shares of Caterpillar Inc , which sells heavy equipment to energy companies, jumped 4.48 percent.
By Rodrigo Campos NEW YORK (Reuters) - Oil prices rallied on Wednesday after members of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries reached an agreement on a production-limiting deal, boosting energy sector shares. Norway, although not an OPEC member, is a major crude producer. Crude oil prices jumped after sources told Reuters that OPEC agreed to reduce its oil output by about 750,000 barrels per day.
