OPEC deal a fake

OPEC announced an agreement to cut production — to between 32.5 million and 33 million barrels per day from current levels of 33.2 million barrels — without agreement as to which members will bear the brunt of the production cuts. FGE Chairman Fereidun Fesharaki calls this “a fake deal” and explains that OPEC could not afford to come away from Algiers empty-handed.


Nymex Light Crude rallied to $48/barrel and looks set to test resistance at $50. Breakout above $50 would signal a primary up-trend but respect is more likely, once the market gets past the headlines, and would suggest further consolidation between $40 and $50.
