OPEC deal to curb oil production held up by Mexico: report
Mexico is holding up a deal by the world's largest oil producers, including Saudi Arabia and Russia, to curb production, Bloomberg News reported late Thursday. A tentative agreement to cut 10 million barrels a day in May and June was reportedly reached by the OPEC nations earlier in the day, apparently ending a months-long price war, but Bloomberg reported Mexican officials refused to go along with the proposed cuts to its production, and walked out of marathon videoconference negotiations.

Crude prices sank Thursday after investors worried the deal wouldn't be enough to offset a sharp drop in demand due to coronavirus-related shutdowns around the world.

Then it missed out on a bonanza when disaster finally struck.Softening the blow, Calpers held on to the second hedge long enough to make several hundred million dollars, one of the people said.Ben Meng, chief investment officer of Calpers, said the fund terminated the hedges because they were costly and other risk-management tools are more effective, cheaper and better suited to an asset manager of its size."At times like this, we need to strongly resist ‘resulting bias' -- looking at recent results and then using those results to judge the merits of a decision," Meng said in a statement. "We are a long-term investor. For the size and complexity of our portfolio, we need to think differently."Calpers had been warned about the perils of shifting strategy.
