Energy market:

Happy New Year everyone, friends!

OPEC + will continue to smoothly increase the supply on the oil market in February, expecting to supply the market by 400 thousand barrels of oil more than in January. A number of analysts directly state about a possible shortage of oil by 2025, expecting that demand will significantly exceed supply. The fact is that not all exporters will be able to increase production due to political and economic problems within the countries. Note that Russia is already close to its technical limit and in the coming years is unlikely to be able to show production levels above 12 million barrels per day without large-scale investments in the industry.

Gas prices in Europe remain at $ 1,000 per 1,000 cubic meters. Optimistic estimates are that if the next two months are warm, there will be enough gas until mid-March, and then spring. But even in this situation, the storage facilities will turn out to be empty by the summer, and if there will be only cabbage and nothing else in Brussels’ heads, then the winter of 2023 can be met with prices as high as $ 2,000 per 1,000 cubic meters. People will not understand the next increase in fuel prices; there is no need to look far for examples.

By reading our predictions, you could have made a wheat futures trade down from 820 to 735 cents per bushel. You could also make money in the sugar market by moving down from 19.80 to 18.21 cents per pound. In addition, you could make money on the dollar / ruble pair by taking a move up from 72.90 to 77.00.

Grain market:

Corn prices remained stable in the early days of the new year, while wheat prices corrected slightly. So far, there are no signs of a downward reversal in the market, and most likely it will not, as fears of a pandemic, global inflation and uncertainty about the new harvest will support quotes until May.

As gas prices remain high in the EU, nitrogen fertilizer production will be extremely expensive, placing a heavy burden on farmers. It should be noted that a program for providing farms with fertilizers has been developed in Russia; it is designed to prevent a shortage of these products on the domestic market.

There is another, indirect, but significant factor in relation to the grain market: greenhouse farming with high prices for gas and electricity in Europe is becoming unprofitable. This will only exacerbate the shortage of vegetable products and lead to another round of price increases.


Judging by the published minutes of the December meeting, the US Federal Reserve is ready to start raising rates already at the March meeting. This came as a surprise to the market as traders expected a smoother development of events.

However, the number of new jobs outside the agricultural sector in the United States in December turned out to be significantly worse than analysts’ forecast and amounted to only 211 thousand. Such weak data can cool the hotheads of the dollar bulls. With a weak labor market, Powell will ignore inflation and will continue to keep rates at zero.

The ruble came under attack in the early days of 2022 amid problems in Kazakhstan. At the moment, the situation both in Kazakhstan and on the market does not look dramatic, but the national currency will most likely continue to remain under some pressure.

Already on Monday, we are expected to hold talks between Russia and the United States in Geneva, then, on the 12th, Russia-NATO talks are to take place. If the communication between the parties is restless and in places deranged, then we will see another wave of sales from the beginning of this year in the dollar / ruble pair, despite high oil prices.
