Oil Surges After Saudi Arabia Pulls A Draghi, Says Will Do "Whatever It Takes" For Stable Oil Market

 

http://www.zerohedge.com/node/516900

 

The oil producers are rapidly learning from the central banks how to jawbone markets higher. With both Brent and WTI sliding as recently as ten minutes ago, suddenly a buying frenzy was unleashed following a Bloomberg headline which cited the Saudi Press Agency, according to which the world's largest crude exporter was ready to pull a Draghi and would do "whatever it takes" for a stable oil market, and that it would cooperate with OPEC and non-OPEC members for stable prices.

Here is the Bloomberg take:

  • SAUDI GOVT READY TO DO WHAT IT TAKES FOR STABLE OIL MARKET: SPA
  • SAUDI READY TO COOPERATE WITH OPEC, NON-OPEC FOR STABLE PRICES

Which however is somewhat different from the actual SPA press release, which says "The Cabinet stressed the Kingdom's role in the stability of the oil market, its constant readiness and continuing pursuit to cooperate with all oil producing and exporting countries."

Whether this means that Saudi Arabia, which has been pumping record amounts in recent months will slow down, is unclear: after all the entire strategy by the Saudis has been to put marginal, high cost producers out of business. So did they just wave the white flag of surrender? We seriously doubt it.

If anything, this is more of a market test to see just how much impact jawboning has on market prices. And judging by the immediate reaction, it is substantial.

  • BRENT CRUDE PARES LOSS TO TRADE 18 CENTS LOWER AT $44.48/BBL
  • S&P FUTURES PARE DROP TO 2.5PTS AS OIL PARES LOSS; NASDAQ -4PTS

Draghi would be proud.

Of course, whether the Saudis will actually do anything, well that's a different story.

Didn't last too long?  Or am I seeing something else.  Anyway - an interesting idea I read today - the Saudis may have to un-peg their currency.  Rather than try and fiddle oil output.  I was only reading superficially, and haven't thought too much about it.  Could be a black-swan to watch out for ?  OR?

Yes you are right, it soon came back down.  I read that also.  The Saudis are under pressure but really dont want to cut production and lose market share.  It had been suggested that they un-peg.  Currency futures are pricing this in.  I think we will find out soon enough when OPEC meet early December.

I agree with what you're saying , and like that you're watching this and letting us know.  BUT - (in general) I find it funny that everything is always priced in, but the price of the commodity (in this case oil) will still move strongly when some news comes out as if nothing has been priced in. 

Do you really think people have priced in the impact of a Saudi un-peg? 

Just like everyone has priced in a US rate hike, but the markets have rallied to a higher point that when this re-pricing occurred?  I am not arguing one way or the other, the market is always "right" so to speak.  YET I wonder a little about what's been priced in or not.

I get your point about the term "priced in".  Will be interesting to see exactly how markets respond to upcoming events.  For example some argue that the dollar is pricing in the first few rate rises.  Although I think there will still be big currency moves when it does happen.  Rather than the dollar getting weaker, I think when other central banks move, their currency will gain stregnth against the USD and this is when things will start to balance again.

    • Hey @pravid17 I hope you're well.  In the leveraged trading industry there are brokers who don't hedge client's exposure and brokers (like ourselves) who do hedge client's exposure.  In a perfect world the exposure of short clients would net off the trades of long clients however this is not always the case. Our hedging model allows us to take an exposure in the underlying market for the remaining exposure which doesn't offset - This way we don't need to hedge every trade, worry about profits of our clients and results in lower costs for hedging in the underlying market (commissions, interest etc.). So say 60% of IG customer exposure in the ASX was long and 40% of exposure on the ASX was short. The 40% would net each other off but there's a remaining 20% of customers who need to be hedged to cover their positions. We go into the market and hedge this.  We make our money primarily through our spreads and overnight funding  with other fees making up a small proportion of our revenue. I would like to remind also that IG is regulated by several bodies globally, including top-tier regulators like the UK's FCA, Germany's BaFIN, Australia's ASIC - This should be quite reassuring from a dealing execution and transparency perspective.  I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other question 
    • A survey from Reviews.org, which featured 1000 Americans, found that as many as 1 in 4 US subscribers may quit the service in the next year.    Jeremy Naylor | Writer, London | Publication date: Friday 23 September 2022  There was an interesting breakdown, but the main reason was affordability. Only 18% said they would move to a cheaper competitor. IGTV’s Jeremy Naylor looks at the numbers. Netflix subscription woes Netflix Inc (All Sessions) could be in for a rough time ahead over the next 12 months if a new survey is anything to go by, which was conducted in the US. Out of the 1,000 adults that took part in this survey undertaken by Reviews.org, around 25% of those that were covered said that they would be cancelling their Netflix subscription within the next 12 months. Now, it says with that 25% of US subscribers to Netflix considering leaving, not to join a competitor, but mostly because of pressures on household bills. This is how it is split: rising cost of subscriptions - 40% inflation - 20% a lack of content - 22% spending more time on the services of others - 18% So you can see, a minority said they were going to other services, such as those provided by Disney Plus or Amazon Prime. The cost of Netflix has risen dramatically this year as its basic plan increased by 11% in January and its other plans by 20% to 25%. Now these were the first price increases for three years, so that itself is relatively new for a lot of subscribers. Netflix share price Let's take a look at the Netflix share price. You can see on the far left hand side of this chart the COVID lows at $290.39. We saw a whacking great increase there of 141% to the top and the record high in Netflix shares back in November 2021. And that was when subscriptions were rising, people were paying more for their services, and it was all humming beautifully. And then all of a sudden people started questioning the numbers of streaming services they were undertaking with some deciding to withdraw from Netflix. All of a sudden the big drops started coming through with profit warnings and sales warnings. We've recently hit a new low of $162.50. Since then there has been a little bit of an increase. We're currently trading at $232.75, but we are down by a margin of 1.75% in today's session, which reflects this news that we could well see a relatively large drop in subscribers for Netflix in the US within the next 12 months.
