OIL. Retracement or Reversal?
Market participants still think that the OPEC cartel is cheating with the level of oil production. In fact, oil output didn’t go down, but, on the contrary, grows.
The cartel hopped that the extension of the deal would inspire the market again and support oil price, but it did not happen. Oil investors are now focusing on the leader of OPEC - Saudi Arabia, which can become an initiator for improving the situation on the oil market. Worth mentioning that in 2018, state-owned company “Saudi Aramco” plans to conduct an IPO (placement of shares on the exchange).
Situation and stability in the market, and within OPEC cartel itself will influence the price of future shares of “Saudi Aramco”. Therefore, for Saudi Arabia and the entire cartel, there is not much time left to make market participants to believe that OPEC can control the market situation.
In the current situation, the price of oil continues to go down, and last week it was below $ 43 per barrel. If there is no decisive actions in the form of verbal intervention, and decisive actions aimed at reducing production. For example, as the cancellation of the special status of Nigeria and Libya, which continue to increase production by the day, this week oil is expected at $40 per barrel.
