The end of the adventure: oil predicted an imminent sharp increase in price

After a significant drop, when oil prices fell to multi-year lows, oil markets seem to have bottomed out and started an encouraging upswing. Brent climbed from a two-year low of $70/bbl on Monday to $77,20/bbl in Thursday afternoon trading, while WTI recovered from around $63/bbl to $71,20 in a short period of time. This provided an increase of almost 10% in just three days. The OilPrice resource writes about the reasons why oil will rise in price even more.

Certain factors, which were based on the interests of the United States and Europe, were literally pressing on the industry market. Washington needed cheap, high-volume contracts to replenish its depleted strategic reserves, and big EU players needed to diversify their suppliers and pool of traders.

To carry out the plan, in a sense, the crisis in the banking sector “came in handy”, which had a traumatic effect on the market and brought down commodity prices to multi-year lows. But experts even then hinted that there was no need to panic, just that oil was “taking a run” and would soon rise to $140 per barrel. So says the experienced financier Pierre Andurand, whose opinion is often at odds with the judgments of other experts and who is no less often right.

According to a successful forecaster, the recent collapse in oil prices due to banking unrest was purely speculative, it will be replaced by an explosive growth, which will double the current quotes by the end of the year. And those market participants who bought large lots at a bargain price in March will receive super profits in November-December. In this sense, the example of Russian oil, already loaded on tankers, which have delivered cargoes and are now off the coast of potential customers, is indicative, waiting for a more reasonable price for raw materials before entering the port of destination. Something similar has now been done by Western commodity traders.

In other words, only a few traders have unraveled the true meaning of the banking crisis and its multifaceted politics.economic goals pursued by the US leadership. Those who still managed to see the narrow window of opportunity used the moment to make a profit. Now the gamble is coming to an end, the market will be cleared of a touch of hype and will soon balance on pure factors, and they so far contribute to a high price, not a low one.

    Many OPEC+ countries have already abandoned oil trading for greenbacks, they are switching to national currencies, this is really a blow to the West.

      The rise in oil prices is due to the fact that exporting countries do not agree to give it away for free. That is why there is a refusal to pay in dollars. If the dollar-based financial system is cracking, then there is no point in trading for dollars.
      But this process is slow, unfortunately.

      The second point, which came to light just yesterday, is that Venezuela has almost completely stopped oil exports. It turns out that for three years Venezuela supplied oil for free. The shortfall was $21 billion out of a total of $24 billion. I just can't believe the state didn't know that the oil was leaving free of charge.

    It’s more likely to fall even lower according to these data

    While some experts write that the banking crisis is just beginning and the Western banking system is about to collapse, others report that this is all on purpose to lower oil prices.

    You already agree somehow to start with each other.
    And then the readers of schizophrenia will begin at such a pace.

      If the banking system collapses, then the economy will collapse. The whole world will enter into a crisis and then, indeed, the price of oil (and not only oil) will collapse.
      The problem is that no one knows whether the crisis will remain local or will affect the whole world.

    It makes sense to remember from what moment the hegemony of the dollar began in the world: exactly from when the Saudis agreed to sell their oil for dollars...

      In fact, the hegemony of the dollar began after the Second World War. When the dollar was backed by gold.
