    Thanks afternoon crew.

    End-of-day summary:

    The share market started the week with its first rise in three sessions as a rebound in crude prices boosted the energy sector.

    The ASX 200 edged up nine points or 0.13% to 7058. Gains in energy producers, banks and consumer discretionary stocks narrowly outweighed declines across the wider market. Aristocrat Leisure, Santos, Woodside and ANZ were the best of the heavyweights. Newmont, Woolworths and Telstra were among the drags.

    The energy sector bounced 1.33% after reports of possible OPEC production cuts helped lift Brent crude 4.1%. The oil cartel meets this weekend.

    Today's timid market advance mirrored a similar session on Wall Street on Friday as the market digested three weeks of strong gains. Friday's 0.13% rise extended the S&P 500's recovery from last month's low to around 9.6%.
