Metallic taste of American sanctions. Metal prices hit record

77
The world market is responding to US sanctions measures against Russia and to the counter-sanctioned response being prepared by the Russian Federation. For example, economists have said that following the barriers to Russian aluminum supplies to the world market, the United States can set up barriers for nickel. On this information, the price of nickel began to grow at a record pace over the past few years.


In the course of trading on the London Metal Exchange, the price of nickel increased by almost 4,7% - to 14,87 thousand dollars per ton. This is a maximum of more than three years.



Independent economists have reportedly noted some oddity in US sanctions. Possible sanctions against Norilsk Nickel look like a “shot in one’s own leg,” since the demand for nickel in the United States itself is only growing against the background of growing demand for electric cars. But the US authorities, it seems, are already so absorbed in their sanctions measures that they are ready to "shoot" in all directions ...

The same situation with aluminum. The sanctions against Rusal led to the fact that during the week the price of this metal soared to the 7-year record, closely approaching the 2,5 mark of thousands of dollars per ton. AT Goldman Sachs They say that the price of aluminum will not stop at this and will grow in the coming days to 3 thousand dollars.

Other metals also went into growth: gold, palladium, silver, platinum. Thus, palladium added almost 3% per day.

On the record is the price of oil. So the Brent “black gold” barrel trades at the level of 72,7-72,81 dollars, and the WTI barrel for the first time since 2014 has stepped over the mark of 68 dollars.

    My suspicion is growing more and more that sanctions are a way for stock traders to improve their affairs. I wonder how much they unfasten Trump?

                    Ukrainians, they are Ukrainians and are Russian. Slammed, fooled, but Russian. And it’s a shame that not only they began to boast of their “nationality”, but some of ours began to identify them as a separate nation. But what if the Cossacks decide to identify themselves as a separate people?

                      But, unfortunately, already in the days of the USSR, under Stalin, and under other leaders, they introduced the idea from school that they were a separate people from the Russians, albeit related, Eastern Slavic. Therefore, there are many people who are nostalgic for the USSR, advocate friendship with Russia, but nevertheless consider themselves to be a separate people. And this must be taken into account.
                      And we, in the RSFSR, Russian Soviet schoolchildren, were just as well told that there were fraternal Ukrainian people. And in the childhood, adolescence, and student periods of my life, all the familiar Ukrainian guys considered themselves representatives of a particular people.

                      In Belarus, partly a similar, partly different situation. Back in Soviet times, the presence of double self-awareness was recognized. Many Belarusians at the same time considered themselves Belarusians, Russians and did not see any contradiction in this.
                      I consider myself also Russian and Great Russian.)) That is, for me, it is important not only to belong to the Russian people, but also to its Great Russian branch.

    Unfortunately, everyone except the citizens of the Russian Federation makes money on this. Right now in the news I heard that airline tickets have risen in price due to the growth of the Euro. But damn it, last April I bought Aeroflot tickets to Rome at a rate of 73 rubles per euro at a price of 17 and a half thousand rubles. Now they are sold (under the same conditions) already at 26 thousand .. They threw 50% .. I’m just getting fucked up .. Right now, the public utilities will throw up about 20 percent. Heh, the dollar is growing

      Fly with another airline, cheaper. Here is the printscreen from the phone. (I really don’t know where you got the ticket from).

        Yes, I know that you can find cheaper options. I just spoke out about Aeroflot. But you are a one way ticket. On both sides it will turn out approximately the same as that of Aeroflot in my case from Kazan. Although I chose Finnair. As last year tickets cost 17 thousand, so they are now. Respect Finns

      This is all excuses ... You might think tickets will become cheaper if the Euro drops twice. It’s just that our “businessmen” are accustomed to borrow money, and not to earn money. And they ask themselves for privileges, muzzled them, poor. Not, of course, there are decent, but their meager.

    Well, they themselves dreamed about the victory of world capital with a democratic face! Well planned. As one classic said: "Fear your desires, they tend to come true." And they thought that they would fall into a fairy tale like a world hegemon .. smile

    Or maybe it's not the price of metal is rising. but just the dollar is falling?

    In this situation, I had one question. With rising metal prices, who will be the first to realize that it is foolish to sell these metals for paper that is not even provided with aluminum? Sooner or later, the American MMM will also collapse. As for Russia, then rushing in this case is imprudent. The backlog has gone. The excitement on the exchange is akin to panic. And for us, a bird in the hand is better than a crane in the sky.

    Rising metal prices will affect everyone. And not for the better. I’m directly related to aluminum products by occupation. And while rising raw material prices have so far led stupidly to a drop in production and sales. All our factories that produce structural aluminum products are tied to prices on the London Stock Exchange and will increase their price after raw materials. And this pulls a bunch of industries from aircraft to construction. We need to make our own exchange for metals trading, and for rubles. And to do it both for internal consumers, and for external. Since Deripaska cut off foreign markets, let him work for the good of Russian industry and sell metal here, and not in London.

    At the expense of aluminum prices, of course, trouble. Because the rise in price also affects Russian aluminum product processors. So everything is not so rosy for us, unfortunately.

    Hospada, take the stock chart and make news at least every day. lol
    The fact that the price has reached a local maximum does not mean anything, traders will sell everything, the price, as always, will collapse before the next "sensational" rise. And who said that the state would benefit from this if long-term contracts at fixed prices were concluded for quite some time? ...
