Russian oil price ceiling looks like a plea for forgiveness


It seems that limiting the upper limit of the price of Russian oil worries not so much the limited supplier, but the limiting party. The EU is well aware of the consequences of such a step, but they can no longer turn off this path. From Monday, December 5, an oil embargo on sea supplies of raw materials from Russia comes into force. At the same time, the European Union set a fairly high price ceiling for oil from the Russian Federation, thus providing profit to Moscow and even carriers of prohibited goods (increase in risks and insurance prices, which means an increase in freight prices).


In other words, against the will of the United States, or rather, their European Russophobic puppets, the EU found a compromise, saving face to all market participants. Moreover, according to Reuters, the oil price cap mechanism itself is very flexible and can be revised.

All this suggests that the price cap actually looks like a request for mercy, so that Russia would not even think about withdrawing its liquid and sought-after goods from the market, which would threaten Europe, and indeed the whole world, with a catastrophe.

On Friday, Reuters, citing Polish Ambassador to the EU Andrzej Sados, said that the price cap agreement also provides for a revision mechanism that would keep the price cap up to 5% below market value. It is also Europe's way of protecting itself from Russian moves to influence a situation that is unacceptable to itself. Simply put, if oil is quoted at a high level, say, $100 or more per barrel, then the EU will buy it at $95. In this case, by design, everyone should be satisfied.

This is precisely what unnerves Washington and the Poles the meaning of a very flexible and at the same time inflated ceiling on the price of Russian oil. His compromise can no longer be hidden.

    It is necessary to revise the capacity of the reference "barrel" downward, depending on the price.

    I don't know to what extent this oil price ceiling provides Moscow with a profit.
    So far, on Forex and MICEX, I see how the ruble every day slowly breaks through the bottom against the dollar, the euro and others.
    I believe that it will be possible to forget about the exchange rate $1 = 60 rubles for a long time.
  3. Russia needs to set a floor for oil prices, say $300 for a 100 liter barrel!

    You are right that the exchange rates are rising.

    But, since you are in Forex, do you know the words "speculation", "stock market panic" and others? And "buy on rumors, sell on news" (C)? It is clear that after the official introduction of the price ceiling (speculators) could not help but change. But where will they go when it becomes clear that oil can really be bought only for rubles? Moreover, it is expensive and / or not for everyone, and under other conditions determined by Moscow and / or OPEC?

      Do all OPEC countries also sell oil for rubles?

        What does OPEC have to do with it? I think it was all the same about Russian oil.

            No, the title of the topic directly says about Russian oil, and not just some kind of oil.

              The title of the thread is irrelevant here.

              But that's where they'll go when it's clear that oil can really be bought only for rubles? Moreover, it is expensive and / or not for everyone and subject to other conditions determined by Moscow and/or OPEC?

    Does OPEC have heavy oil? If the oil of the Russian Federation and Venezuela can be bought ONLY for rubles, then instead of the petrodollar there will be a petroruble.

    But the time has not yet come.

    For example, my wife suddenly tells me that she will never kiss me again if I don’t buy her boots ... For example. And yet she does not kiss, that is, she is serious. And it turns out that Serezha's neighbor has already bought her those fucking boots. So I won’t send her with boots to the fucking neighbor Serezha FOREVER? Well, if I respect myself, of course. So, do we respect ourselves?

      The question is rather rhetorical, we sell to our enemies almost for free raw materials from which fuel and weapons are made to destroy us, we even regularly pay money to Ukraine, which is waging war against us.

        In 1942, Hitler turned to the Caucasus - the main goal is Baku oil, the country then defended the oil fields, now we are fighting for our enemies to get oil from us simply by printing money. You can continue our soldiers fighting the enemy at a time when their families are extracting oil, gas, steel, coal, wood, which we sell to the enemy and the enemy on our raw materials, for our money produces guns, shells, rockets that kill our loved ones, and the profit from the sale exported to the West, that is, a vicious circle, like the priest had a dog ... . We can't fight like this, it's a road to nowhere.

    Not at all. In fact, Venezuelan oil belongs to the Russian Federation. Et you have forbidden information on U. But if you haven’t been banned on Google and the wiki yet, you can easily find it.

    De facto, even with a complete ban on Russian oil, gringos will still buy Russian, but produced in Venezuela. And Geyropa will suck ... "Friendship". This is not processed cheese, but a pipeline blocked by Poland. :)

      There is no need to talk nonsense about Venezuela, Geyrop and beloved W. here.
      Tell us better about petrorubles, about which nothing has been heard about in my near Moscow region.

    Well, you see, you yourself admit that "yet". It’s just that you are still young, uninformed .... Wait a bit, and it will come to the zamkadish! :)

      Antoine, you loudly admit that you farted a stupid heresy about petrorubles, without even a remote idea of ​​​​how exactly the process of selling Russian oil "for rubles" goes.
