          The signature trump leads to the weakening subscene of oil are rising because of the hurricane and the devaluation

          Oil prices following the steep decline again began to gain momentum – that is clearly to wait for the reaction of the ruble. Your forecast concerning the prices for key energy source in the next year and gave Igor Sechin. What is the current growth and what do you think analysts are relatively pessimistic Igor Sechin?

          Oil rises after a significant price reduction last week. The November futures for Brent crude rose to 8.15 MSK to 54 dollars per barrel, to hold above failed to 14.35 oil is 53,59 dollar.

          The head of the largest Russian oil company Rosneft Igor Sechin prepares next year to the price of oil is 40-43 per barrel, that is, waiting for the fall in oil prices by almost a third. Recently, Sechin asked the question that now has more influence on the oil market, the deal with OPEC or the devaluation of the dollar. “The Americans are using the devaluation of the dollar support their shale producers. I believe that it is not affected by the deal with OPEC, and the devaluation of the dollar,” – said Sechin. It made doubt and will support the extension of the agreement with OPEC Russia – or the producers – exporters of oil will decide that this is meaningless.

          The growth of oil on Monday due to several factors. First, slower-than-expected opening of US oil refining capacity was halted because of the hurricane “Harvey”. According to expert estimates, about 6% of refining capacity in the United States remain closed.

          Secondly, last week the oil market fell due to fears of reduction of demand for petroleum products in the United States as a result of hurricane “Irma”. However, there is information about the weakening of the force of the hurricane that hit Florida on Sunday, which also supported the oil on Monday.

          However, it is not only a natural disaster. “Hurricanes in the United States are only apparent reason for the increase in oil prices. In fact, the reaction of oil prices on reports of the injuries does not always lead to their growth. Investors trying to gauge what positive and important for the oil market – temporary suspension of mining and processing of oil or the risks of activation of deferred demand. The fundamental reasons for the growth of two now – weakening dollar and global economic growth, which brings the balance of supply and demand in the market”, – considers the head of analytical Department of Bank “Zenith” Vladimir Evstifeev.

          You can never rely on just one factor when talking about the price of this strategic commodity, like oil, agrees the managing Director of “Nord Capital” Michael Khans.

          The devaluation of the dollar does affect oil prices. “Despite the fact that oil and the dollar is a significant part of the year lived each by itself, yet without the weakness of the American currency oil would be much lower. The U.S. dollar weakened by 13% from their peak values in January and without this weakening, the oil price would 46,50 per barrel of Brent against the current 53,50 dollar, if you make a simple adjustment for exchange rate fluctuations. But often the fall of the dollar by 1% causes a two to threefold increase in commodity markets growth of demand for risky assets”, says financial analyst FxPro Alexander Kuptsikevich.

          But in addition to the dollar and the decisions of the fed to raise rates, the impact of oil now have also the forecasts of the world economy from the IMF and the world Bank, said Michael Khan. Their projections are encouraging: they expect growth in the range of 0.5–1%. Also interesting data on quarterly U.S. GDP, China and Eurozone, which affect short-term price changes.

          Technically, the price of Brent crude oil reached $ 55 a barrel, but with the move to this level could not be overcome, the next strong resistance zone 57-58, says Khan.

          But the forecast Sechin of oil in 2018 economists believe modest. Alexander kuptsikevich believes that you can not fear to expect in 2018, the price of oil in the region of $ 50. Michael Khans risk to assume that for the holidays we will go with the cost of 48-50 dollars per barrel. But next year he waits for the outflow of the liquidity from the market, the fed’s policy tightening and, as a consequence, the growth of the dollar and lower oil prices. “The range of 43 to 48 dollars per barrel for the first six months of 2018, it seems to me a compromise between sellers and buyers. With one “but”. It is the unpredictability of trump, who may at any time to make adjustments in the financial policy of the United States and geopolitics”, – says Mikhail Khans.

          Of course, the oil market depends on a whole list of factors, however, while the set of drivers suggests that the reasons go beyond the boundaries of the medium of highs and lows for the price of a barrel 44-57 dollars – no, says Evstifeev.

          “Right now

          the oil market has all the chances to hold above $ 50 per barrel of North sea oil. The dollar could continue to weaken,

          due to the soft rhetoric of the fed and the growing confidence the European Central Bank amid improving economic indicators in the Eurozone. In addition, OPEC has another ACE in the hole – the inclusion in the agreement to freeze production levels of the countries within the cartel that was exempted from participation because of recovery of previous historical production levels”, – the expert concludes.

          As for the ruble, this week it is possible a new wave of strengthening of the Russian currency to 56.8–57 rubles per dollar, whereas by the end of the year, the ruble may again weaken to 60-61.
