  • The quote says “to start the year” - no “the”. – Lawrence Feb 25 '19 at 8:52
  • It doesn't have an "exact meaning". – Hot Licks Feb 26 '19 at 1:58

It means that the year began with a rally. Another way to write it might be:

After ending 2018 in freefall, oil prices started the year by rallying approximately 25%, boosted by efforts by global producers to cut supply.
