Absolutely. This deal that has now failed is really going to make many countries really mad, especially the IMF, Central Banks, and all the OPEC and Non OPEC countries. America should have thought twice, before lifting those sactions on IRAN, as that was going to spell BIG trouble, and look what happened in January with the oil price. Although exiting for traders, unfortunetly this may be the start of a very ugly cycle in the oil market. Angola and Nigeria have already asked for bailouts because of oil, the scary thing is that their are countries in europe with economic links to these countries, hence why the IMF are not very pleased with this, especially with the effect this will have on inflation as well. USD JPY, USD CAD, & no doubt other currencies will be also be interesting to watch.

I agree casey, the issue as well is that europe's growth is stagant, as well as china, of which up until 2014, had a huge appetite of oil and other major commodities, once the bubble burst, all commodities headed south. In terms of Shale, what oil producers seem to forget, is that you can easily re-start shale production quite easily, therefore saudi-arabia knows that as soon as oil reaches $50, shale producers can be switched on. The oil glut will eventually level off, due to smaller rig counts in the US and -$500 billion of which has not been invested by oil companies. Therefore this will eat into the storage. But for now in the short-term oil will without doubt fall and countries and companies will unfortunetly suffer.

I think we all saw that coming and even some of the MSM did, thought most are reporting it like a "shock, horror!" happening.  the truth, as some have already point out there, is that a deal was impossible.  At best all they could do was make a deal to freeze at current levels without Iran.  They probably should have but this is as much about politics as anything else.  These guys need cash to keep their populations from rising up.  It is a massive fear factor that is driving their decision making and fear is a much stronger motivation than greed.

 

I see more of the same through the Summer and I just can't see the markets hacking that.  Sell in May?  I'd actually be saying April now, if I hadn't already sold a year ago that is...

The irony, is that Russia was stating, that they did not need Iran to come to the table to agree to an oil freeze and the markets went on a bull run, but later on in the day on wednesday Iran stated it had no intention, hence why it turned negative the following day. As wise men have stated in the past, dont trust what the russians say lol. Oil no doubt would have fallen most likely further, had it not been a strike out Kuwait, however we will have to see if we surpass 61% Fib level today.

I actually believe the Russians would have done a deal without Iran but they are not part of OPEC and not embroiled in a regional struggle as Saudi and Iran are.  Saudi can't afford to lose face to Iran or they risk loosing a lot more...  As I said it is all about politics in that regions, I really wish the day technology allows us to get out from under the yoke of oil and this oppressive region comes sooner rather than later!

Interesting quote from the venezuelas president just now from reuters: 

MOSCOW, April 18 (Reuters) – Intense pressure from the United States was one of the reason why OPEC and non-OPEC producers failed to reached a deal on freezing oil output in Doha on Sunday, Venezuelan Oil Minister Eulogio Del Pino told reporters.

"The United States was behind the pressure. They have a problem with Venezuela, Russia... They are doing this for political reasons and are ignoring their own people suffering. Ask any oil company in the U.S. – they are all very sad because of what happened yesterday," he said.

So typical, its always someone elses fault when things go wrong, this is the guy that charged only 0.01p per litre, and now complains the US for its problems especially its inflation now 500%.

    • Breaking News - US NFPs Surge to 517k vs 185k Expectations, Unemployment Rate Falls to 3.4% Feb 3, 2023 | DailyFX Nick Cawley, Senior Strategist Source: Bloomberg   US DOLLAR (DXY) PRICE AND CHART ANALYSIS US NFPs smash expectations in January. US dollar picks up a bid. Total nonfarm payroll employment increased by 517k in January, and the unemployment rate fell to 3.4% according to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics. Hourly earnings also beat expectations. Last month’s NFP figure was also revised higher from 223k to 260k. ‘ Job growth was widespread in January, led by gains in leisure and hospitality, professional and business services, and health care. Employment also increased in government, partially reflecting the return of workers from a strike.’     The Federal Reserve hiked interest rates by 25 basis points at this Wednesday's FOMC meeting, a move fully expected, and priced in by the market. Fed chair Powell, while continuing to stress that further rises are data dependent, added a new word to his FOMC vocabulary, disinflation, sending the US dollar lower and risk markets sharply higher. Powell said that it is a ‘good thing that disinflation so far has not come at expense of labor market’, adding that ‘this disinflationary period is in early stages’. While chair Powell will still keep tightening monetary policy to break the back of inflation, financial markets are now pricing in just one more 25bp rate hike at the March meeting before a pause in Q2 and Q3, while rate cuts are now seen in Q4. FOMC Hikes Rates 25 bps as Expected, Leaves Open Further Hike Expectations The US dollar (DXY) picked up a bid post-release rising around 60 cents to 101.90 US DOLLAR (DXY) DAILY PRICE CHART – FEBRUARY 3, 2023     What is your view on the US Dollar – bullish or bearish?

    • EUR/USD, GBP/USD and USD/JPY head lower after central bank volatility This week has seen risk-off sentiment dominate the FX market, with EUR/USD and GBP/USD falling back towards Fibonacci support. Meanwhile, the USD/JPY downtrend looks to finally kick in once again.  Joshua Mahony | Senior Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Friday 03 February 2023  EUR/USD turns higher from Fibonacci support EUR/USD has managed to maintain its consistent uptrend despite the central bank fuelled volatility seen over the course of this week. Today brings a final hurdle to overcome in the form of the US jobs report, with the last pullback bringing a potentially advantageous location to look for longs in EUR/USD. With the price having dropped into a deep Fibonacci retracement level over the course of the past 24 hours, this is a notable area where the bulls could come back in to maintain the bullish trend. With that in mind, long positions remain in favour unless we see the price fall back below the $1.0802 swing low. Source: ProRealTime GBP/USD reverses back towards Fibonacci support GBP/USD has been hit hard over the past 24 hours, with the pound particularly coming under pressure in the back end of this week. While that decline has been relatively convincing in terms of momentum, the wider bullish trend remains in play. The pullback into the 76.4% Fibonacci support level of $1.2172 highlights the potential for a bullish turnaround from here. As such, keep an eye out for how the pair respects this Fibonacci level, with a break below that point signalling the potential for a continuation of this decline towards the key $1.2086. Meanwhile, watch out for a move up through the 80 threshold on the stochastic oscillator as a signal that the bulls are coming back into dominance. Source: ProRealTime USD/JPY breakdown points towards further downside USD/JPY has finally given way after a period of consolidation that took the price up towards trendline resistance. The ability to maintain that wider bearish trend brought expectations of another leg lower, which appears to be in the offing. The decline through $1.2902 support brings an end to the recent trend of higher lows seen earlier this week. As such, we appear to have set in motion a potential fresh bearish phase, with a negative outlook holding as long as the price does not rise up through the $1.3055 resistance level established on Monday. Until that happens, the bears look likely to remain in charge. Source: ProRealTime
