The conspirators, namely the OPEC cartel and the sympathizers who joined it under the “plus sign”, closed ranks and said their firm «no» to the American and European aggressors who are demanding to increase oil production beyond all measure. There will be no doubling of production growth. As they planned to increase the volume of the fountain by 400 thousand barrels per day every month, they will continue to do so.
And at this time in Europe, people remember the old occupation of crusaders, and namely knitting. Not everyone will be able to pay for the utility bills this winter in Londons and Parises. They will have to freeze. The German pharmaceutical concern Bayer, which produces tons of aspirin, is especially pleased with such a development of events. If people freeze, they will be ill. So, ordinary citizens are left with anxiety to look at the gas quotes, which have grown tenfold.
Gazprom has lifted in spirits and promises to index salaries. Meanwhile, the countries of the Persian Gulf are preparing to colonize resource-intensive planets, satellites and asteroids. As they say, everyone has their own plans and tasks. But so far all exporters are doing very well and such prosperity will clearly last until the end of winter.

Egypt buys milling wheat by tenders at $ 320 per ton. However, it does not mind the $ 30 freight. And people can be understood, they want to eat. Demand for food remains moderately high, while there is no talk of any global shortfall at the moment.
The rise in food prices, according to statistics maintained by the UN, has become the strongest in the last 10 years. There is nothing to be surprised at. If the central banks of developed countries as these countries call themselves, although there are certain doubts on it: anyway, if developed countries continue to print money, the poor will wash less and spend more of their modest income on food. On the other hand, households will be squeezed by the payment for utilities (electricity, gas, heating, water). As a result, the demand for durable goods will fall, and we will get a full-fledged crisis of overproduction of all kinds of electric scooters, egg containers with a Wi-Fi block and fitness bands.
The USDA report will be released on the 12th. It is unlikely that we will face strong adjustments in terms of gross collection. It is worth paying attention once again to the volumes of corn and soybeans. There is a strong belief that these two crops, plus barley, will do well in providing feed for livestock and poultry. Awareness of this fact can force wheat to stop growing closer to November.
The ruble has not shone like that for a long time. Oil may still hit $ 88.00 per barrel before it starts correcting. Thus, the national currency has more time to visit the 70.00 mark before the fairy tale ends.
Why should the beautiful today be dark tomorrow? Because the Americans are pressing. Plans are ripening in the old heads of the congressmen to take Moscow through an economic blockade. Russian bonds are actively dumping, as evidenced by the RGBI index. If this continues, the ruble will become a direct projection of oil, and it will not always go up.
