Light, sweet crude for January delivery CL2F -0.28%  advanced $1.58, or 1.6%, to $99.79 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange. The contract traded as high as $100.15 a barrel, according to FactSet Research, as gains accelerated in the last hour of trading."

"-US soybean futures end higher, continuing to recover from prior losses on technical buying and supportive external market influences. Fresh soybean-related fundamental news was lacking, keeping traders focused on external financial markets for leadership. Weakness in the US dollar, crude oil spiking to $100/bbl and hopes for progress in EU debt crisis enabled futures to push higher, analysts say. Futures were seen as oversold following last week's tumble, but with investors taking short positions in the market and export demand uncertain, advances were limited, analysts add. CBOT Jan soy ended up 4c at $11.25/bushel. Soy product futures end mixed, with soyoil climbing on the supportive influence of higher soybeans and crude oil futures, analysts say. Soymeal drifted lower, unable to hold initial gains, as traders bought soyoil and sold meal on spreads. CBOT Jan soyoil ended up 0.28c at 49.43c/lb, and Jan soymeal dropped $1.20 to $288.00/short ton."
