The echo of the Suleymani assassination: oil and gold rise in price against the backdrop of the alleged war


The Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps launched rockets at US bases in Iraq. In this regard, the American president, according to some reports, intends to appeal to the people.


As two officials told CNN on condition of anonymity, D. Trump’s speech will take place on January XNUMX and will be broadcast from the Oval Office. Speech time is not indicated. However, the same CNN later informed its viewers that Donald Trump was not going to appeal to the nation.

Apparently, instead of a speech, the president decided so far to confine himself to a meeting. This has already been convened: after the Pentagon officially recognized the fact of the attack on the facilities, Donald Trump urgently called for Minister of Defense Esper and Secretary of State Pompeo.

Recall, the IRGC carried out dozens of missile attacks on two US military air bases in Iraq. Operation “Martyr Suleimani” was announced. The attacks were "addressed" to those military personnel who, according to the IRGC, were involved in the death of General Suleymani. As a result of the attack, fighters at the Ein al-Assad air base were damaged (the exact number of damaged or destroyed aircraft is not yet known). It is assumed that there are human casualties.

Land-to-ground missile strikes are far from everything Iran took on January 8th.

According to the NBC News bureau in Tehran, referring to the Iranian state media, after a missile strike, Iranian air force fighters entered Iraqi space.

The situation is becoming critical: Washington recognizes that Iran’s actions could be the beginning of a war.

Oil markets reacted violently to the situation. WTI prices jumped noticeably on the morning of January 8. Analysts directly link the rise in oil prices with Iranian strikes on US facilities.

At four o’clock in the morning of Moscow time, the cost of WTI crude oil futures (February) rose by more than 4 percent.

The price of gold also rose. According to exchange reports, the price of a troy ounce of precious metal on COMEX in just over an hour increased by thirty-five dollars (an increase of 2,1%). Such a high cost (exceeding $ 1.600) is noted by observers for the first time since 2013.

Two days earlier, the price of oil broke through a six-month high. The reason was the assassination of General Suleymani in Baghdad.

As for the price of Brent, the price of this grade of oil exceeded seventy dollars per barrel for the first time since May 2019.

At the same time, a few days ago, shares of the largest company Saudi Aramco fell sharply. This is also associated with the death of Kassem Suleimani. On January 5, on the Riyadh exchange, the shares of this oil company collapsed by 1,7%.

        Is it a secret that our Central Bank invests almost all its foreign exchange earnings in Western securities?
        There are reasonable opinions that the monetary policy of our Central Bank directly depends on the US Federal Reserve.

            Dear Alexei, well, what the hell are we going to break spears now?
            There is a Central Bank policy that is not approved by the number of economists and politicians.
            I (on some issues, by no means everyone) are closer to criticizing the economic policy of the government, and this is not at all grandfather Zu and not, God forgive me, Bulk.
            I strongly doubt that you are, well, a fan of Medvedev / Oreshkin / Nabiullina, well, and Kudrin (just to the point). And in general, do their fans exist in Russia?

            Alexei, he wrote everything correctly. We have a surplus budget, wages are higher than the roof, but all that is received in excess of the budgeted $ 40 per barrel of oil, for some reason, is not invested in the country's economy, but is stored in funds and transferred to securities, and it is alleged that the money is retired No, there is no way to invest your economy, there are no national projects, and they say another wave of privatization is needed to scratch some money and not accelerate inflation. The government has money like the fool of a shag, but the economy suffocates from the inability to receive long-term loans at a small percentage. The loan terms were cut off over the hill, and the "native" banks tear such a percentage that obviously makes any enterprise unprofitable. So Viktor Petrovich did not come up with anything. hi

      I do not think that the Central Bank of Russia is so stupid. As far as we know, Russia has significantly reduced its share in US securities. And if the Central Bank plays at periodic jumps in courses, then that makes sense.

    Everything is logical. Who needs a war, and who believes that since shale turbidity is unprofitable even forcibly up to 70 bucks per barrel, and once further it is no longer possible to pump it into feeds, and letting normal raw materials from them to the refineries means a small and victorious one. But even an odd thing seems to me that it’s not small in the end, and it doesn’t portend anything victorious for the USA ...

    Scary times begin. The great war is on the verge. Iran is not Iraq. It is much larger, both in terms of population and influence on BV ... Americans will bomb with high-precision ammunition from afar. Iran will block the Strait of Hormuz. Oil will "take off", which will save the bending shale of the United States. Are all these deaths due to this?
    Iran WILL NOT REACH US territory, and it does not have nuclear weapons.

          WAS credited at the beginning of the boom.
          When world oil rose above $ 60, shale producers paid the banks.
          American shales have large reserves, but difficult prey.
          The Russian "traditional" production easier, but the reserves are melting.

            Yes nifiga. The play dies very quickly in any format, and gas cylinders ... As an old tourist, I can confidently tell you that until the mountains are above a couple of kilometers, the chippers and cones rule. But, if you are going to take refuge in the mountains from a nuclear winter, then yes, gas rules. Desirable alpine, with the addition of oxygen. This is done by two firms, MCP and Primus. Both are American, by the way.

                I would be glad to joke, but even in sarcasm something does not work out. But about tourist gas - I'm serious. He doesn’t roll anything other than American in the mountains, and do not care what his uncle Liao does.

          Here you are right ... I once read the story of a Serb during the Kosovo massacre ... here he told in detail how civilians could survive in the event of a real war ... weapons were also included in the NZ in case of looting by marauders.

          He has one problem: it is difficult to shoot himself from him following the results of the situation when he will be in demand.

        Glory here is not in percentage, but in depreciation - as a reserve

    Oh, so maybe the buck will drop to 50 rubles?
    Although of course, coupled with the approaching financial crisis, the fucking is generally quite good.
    It feels to me that 2019 will soon seem quiet and serene ...

      I don’t know about you, but I clearly remembered the default of 98: I don’t know what it was and how (I was in high school then), but I’ve somehow strained, and for the next six months I plan plans based on that experience

        Well then, we lost the war and surrendered to the mercy of the winner.
        And now we are still conducting active hostilities.
        And it seems to me that the government will try to prevent hunger and other things.

      Oh, so maybe the buck will drop to 50 rubles? For Russian exporters, this is unprofitable, so it will not fall.

    and the background of the alleged war, oil and gold rise in price

    Not for nothing that Russia has been strenuously accumulating gold in recent years ..
    Iranian people have fortitude and resilience! Remember Iraq, Libya, etc.
    What did they do ..Russian people with you !!!!

        About five years ago it was more expensive than palladium. Now - it’s cheaper
        Well nafig. The best investment in your future is stew and cartridges.
