Oil Up above $53 in Asia

In London, Brent prices rose 65 cents to $54.12 a barrel on the ICE Futures exchange.

Traders are obviously going to be watching corporate earnings announcements for signs the recession may have bottomed in the first quarter and for company guidance about coming quarters.
