Oil price is on a knifes edge pending any outcome from the Iranian negotiations. blink.gif

The deadline has passed and they have gone into extended time.

Seems like there are still some sticking points so it could go either way.

May be it is too early to think about great buy.

Now oil is back to around $45 level after trading over $50 US a barrel. Will oil drop to $20 US a barrel?


Oil output still growing, as Citi predicts a drop to $20 US a barrel
OPEC sees a slowdown in growth in Canada, but no cap until 2030


WTI down to $46 as IEA says oil glut is getting worse, not better

Oil is now being tested. If it takes the next step down the US economy and markets will start also being tested. The long trade in US dollar might not look so attractive when we start getting more job losses in the oil patch. Those part-timers on minimum wages will start needing to start flip burgers slower to create new jobs in the burger joints.

The large majority of debt and hedging in the oil patch only has maturities out to the end of 2016. A further fall in prices will see more bankruptcies in the US shale oil patch. Once refinancing specialists start making good coin it will be the time to buy quality oil stocks if you can find them. This is the one commodity that should recover strongly, even against falling world growth, when the shale players are driven to the wall and the bubble bursts. Some of the very large players with low leverage and big balance sheets will still make a buck pumping on the sweet spots on US shales, but the supply side will inevitably fall and the Saudis will regain some of their lost market share. I wouldn't be surprised if they started cutting supplies after the dust settles to make up for the losses they and other OPEC nations have suffered in the period of US mal-investment in overcapacity. This chart is all the more reason to PROCEED WITH CAUTION in the current markets.

Yes the real Game of Thrones has been playing out in the Middle East (and beyond) for some time.....

Alliances drop at the change of a hat and the game changes as players adapt to the new changes.

There are no winners from this just more chaos and uncertainty.

Pity the civilians caught up in this.

Meanwhile Libya has declared Force Majeure on its oil production..... yet oil prices have shrugged this off (as there is speculation of sanctions being lifted on Iran).
