Dynamics of changes in some economic segments

Oil market

The oil prices increased a few on 19 November after the summit in Riyadh put the market participation in the dark if the OPEC intends to make a decision to increase oil volumes during the next ministerial meeting scheduled for 5 December 2007.

As a result of the trades in New York Mercantile Exchange on 19 November, the price of the future contract on WTI oil with delivery in January raised by $0.80 and made up $94.64 per barrel. In London the price of the January contract on Brent Crude oil in InterContinental Exchange Futures increased by $0.66 and totaled $92.28 per barrel.

The observers say that generally the OPEC summit took place without surprises significantly affecting the oil market. The only noticeable moments of this two days summit was the requirement of Iran and Venezuela to abandon the USD as only currency for oil accounts.

The President of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, said that the serious fall of the USD rate adversely affects the oil producing countries. "Due to the unreliability of the USD, it needs to use other more reliable currency during commercial, economic and oil operations," he said.

The Finance Minister of Saudi Arabia, Saud Al-Faisal, abandoned the challenges of Iran and Venezuela, saying that the Kingdom does not want the USD to drop. The concluding communique of the summit did not accept the proposal reflecting the threats presented by the US currency.

Generally many analysts consider that the situation in the oil market remains unchanged. The position of OPEC also has not changed. According to the OPEC representatives, there is not deficit in the oil market.
