FXBrokerFeed Reports on the Current Surge of Oil Prices; OPEC Makes Major Moves

Ontario, Canada - December 6, 2019 /NewsNetwork/ —

Leading money markets analysts at FXBrokerFeed report that oil prices are rising amidst an ongoing battle between OPEC members and the U.S. Oil prices rose on Thursday after Saudi Arabia, the former top producer of oil, urged OPEC members to cut oil production by about 400,000 barrels per day.

Forex broker comparison service FXBrokerFeed brings you news and trends in the FX broker market regarding the recent surge in oil prices and what it means for financial markets across the world.

U.S. the Leading Oil Producer

The U.S. overtook Saudi Arabia to become the world biggest oil producer, an achievement that has frequently been cited by President Donald J. Trump. This development caused oil prices to tumble, considering that the U.S. is the biggest oil consumer after China. Now, OPEC member countries are seeking to cut their losses by reducing their oil production.

A Good Day for Oil Investors

On Thursday, oil prices rose across the world as OPEC countries, led by Russia and Saudi Arabia, agreed to reduce oil production by about 400,000 barrels per day. OPEC member countries are scheduled to hold a formal meeting on Friday to chart the way forward. Most countries will have to contend with higher oil prices this holiday season, but oil prices in the U.S. remain unchanged.

On Thursday, the West Texas Intermediate showed no change as prices remained pegged at $58.42 per barrels. However, the Brent Crude futures saw a rise of 0.6% (equivalent to 35 cents, according to FXBrokerFeed), and oil prices currently stand at $63.29 per barrel.

However, OPEC member countries’ efforts seem futile as oil-producing non-OPEC member countries, such as Brazil, plan to follow the United States’ lead and increase their oil production to meet domestic demands.

On streets of Tehran, relief for now at no wider conflict

Jan 21, 2020

TEHRAN, Iran — Iranian newspapers proclaimed the country's attack on U.S. forces in Iraq to be "a dark night for Americans," and Washington's "first admission of failure in history." On the bustling streets of Tehran, however, there was relief Thursday that neither side appeared primed for war. “War is not something like the ‘Call of Duty’ game," said Dara Shojaei, a 23-year-old architecture student. “It's not a game you can play to win. There's no winner.” But with the relief came some mixed feelings about how far Iran should go to avenge the killing of Revolutionary Guard Gen. Qassem Soleiman,...

Stocks rise as China confirms trade deal signing next week

Jan 21, 2020

NEW YORK — U.S stocks climbed in morning trading on Thursday as investors cheered confirmation from China that its top trade official will head to Washington next week to sign a preliminary trade deal. The “Phase 1” accord is the opening step on a possible path toward a broader agreement between the nations. President Donald Trump has said he will travel to Beijing after the initial signing to start the second stage of talks. Every major index is on track for a record as Wall Street distances itself from a bout of anxiety over the last week because of tensions...

Innovative fashion designers lead the way on sustainability

Jan 21, 2020

LONDON — Innovative fashion designers are turning to such things as horseradish and nettles to make sustainable clothing and accessories to the delight of a growing number of buyers. While more consumers are paying closer attention to how the production of goods impacts the environment, old habits die hard. A buy-and-toss mentality persists despite a boost from celebrities helping to drive the upcycle and vintage movements. Actress Maggie Q, who created an activewear line from recycled fabrics, is among activists who see plenty of room for improvement. She says she feels "sick about fast fashion.'' "You hear people say, 'Well,...

Space Force will start small but let Trump claim a big win

Jan 21, 2020

WASHINGTON — The Trump administration is celebrating the launch of Space Force, the first new military service in more than 70 years. In signing the 2020 National Defense Authorization Act that includes Space Force, Trump on Friday can claim a victory for one of his top national security priorities just two days after being impeached by the House. It is part of a $1.4 trillion government spending package — including the Pentagon's budget — that provides a steady stream of financing for Trump's U.S.-Mexico border fence and reverses unpopular and unworkable automatic spending cuts to defense and domestic programs. Space...

House passes $1.4T government spending bill amid impeachment

Jan 21, 2020

WASHINGTON — The Democratic-controlled House voted Tuesday to pass a $1.4 trillion government spending package, handing President Donald Trump a victory on his U.S.-Mexico border fence while giving Democrats spending increases across a swath of domestic programs. The hard-fought legislation also funds a record Pentagon budget and is serving as a must-pass legislative locomotive to tow an unusually large haul of unrelated provisions into law, including an expensive repeal of Obama-era taxes on high-cost health plans, help for retired coal miners, and an increase from 18 to 21 in the nationwide legal age to buy tobacco products. The two-bill package,...
