BP Q3 results

Oil companies recently have had a really good ride, and it continues this morning as a result of numbers coming in for the third quarter (Q3) from BP.

Let's take a look at the figures as we saw them being delivered this morning. Better than expected third quarter profit of $8.15 billion boosted by very strong natural gas trading. Estimates had been for $6.2 billion for the full-year (FY). BP now expects upstream production to be slightly higher than that of 2021.

The company announced another $2.5 billion in share repurchases and continues to expect to be able to deliver share buybacks around $4 billion per annum.

Share price chart

Let's take a look at the share price chart because this describes exactly what's going on in this sector, that companies are getting more and more profitability coming through.

And we now hear that in addition to the UK government imposing a 25% energy profits levy on North Sea oil and gas producers to raise money to help households struggling to pay the bills, we now hear there's a possibility that's been expanded.

But this doesn't seem to have dented the upward share price movement in today's session. We are currently down half of 1%, but I think you can see on the right hand side of this chart here, we have peaked above recent trading and we have hit 33-month highs for the price of BP. In February next year, there will be three-year highs. So that's where we are for BP, things looking good.

If you're long on this, your stock goes below recent price action. But I think in order to see further higher highs that we've really got to get over this idea that we're going to go into a deep recession and perhaps it might only just be a brushing recession and come out the other side sometime in the first or second quarter of next year. The market can see that. I think there's potentially more upside to go for these oil giants.

    • Forex or Crypto swing trading is a trading style based on identifying swings in the market. Since these swings can take a while to develop, swing trading is most often done over the course of several days or market cycles. If visualized as surfers, traders who utilize this method are out to catch and ride big, long waves. However, in order to catch those waves, traders first need to identify major pivots in the market. What is a Pivot Point? For Crypto or forex traders, it is imperative to know what pivots are and how to spot them. Pivots are the points in the market where price changes direction, from bullish to bearish to bullish, etc. There are important points in price, and there are less important points. Swing traders will not focus on minor pivots, while scalpers will try to take advantage of every minor pivot found. How to Identify Major Pivot Points for Crypto or Forex Swing Trading Major pivot points are easier to spot. They tend to form near support and resistance levels, or they themselves create a new important level. These are points where buyers and sellers are very active. Minor pivots form more regularly and randomly. 
    • The  listing of LSK on the named CEX, with their 20M+ user base will  expose LSK to a different set of traders who prefer or actively use the trading platform esp utilizng their copy trading product. This expanded reach could result in increased trading volume, which is often viewed positively in the crypto space.
    • I just learned about the recent listing of Lisk's utility token LSK on Bitget exchange, I'm curious to understand how this new development might impact both the token itself and the overall Lisk project. Apparently, this listing on Bitget adds another major exchange to the roster, alongside well-established platforms like Kraken, Kucoin, Binance, and OKX. This increased availability on different exchanges generally enhances liquidity and accessibility for traders and investors. More exchange listings can potentially attract a broader audience and bring in new participants to the Lisk ecosystem. To LSK token holders, I'm interested in hearing your thoughts on this recent listing on Bitget. Do you believe it will have a significant impact on the token's value and the project's trajectory? How do you see this development fitting into Lisk's broader goals of making crypto and Web3 accessible to everyone? Let's discuss and share our insights
