Players in the euro against the dollar today in the first half of foreign exchange trading, it is necessary to wait for reduction on the background of the negative dynamics of the credit markets, where yields on 10-year bonds in Germany falls to the English and American papers.

Bar. per day, while Iran and Venezuela speakt mind. On Wednesday and Thursday the Saudis held preliminary meetings with Qatar, the UAE, Iraq, Kuwait, trying to persuade them to increase production, and on the eve of the Minister of Energy of Saudi Arabia Khalid Al-Falih said he was able to convince his opponents. It is worth noting that the market is already "laid" in quotes increase oil production by 1 million. Bbl. / Day, since such conversations sounded more May 25 at the St. Petersburg Economic Forum. For the market it will not be a negative surprise. In my opinion, the market of black gold is now good prospects, because in the last year of hydrocarbon reserves in OECD countries fell to the average level in 5 years, what is the optimal level for producers. For example, in U.S. oil declined by 85 Mill. Bbl., To the level of 426.52 Mill. Barrels. Last year in July and August, stocks in the US fell by 45.14 million. Barrels. - this is the effect of seasonal demand for oil. That is why the administration of the White House approached with a request to OPEC to increase production - the Americans fear the strong reduction of stocks of raw materials. And this is despite the fact that journalists are afraid of us shale revolution and the sharp rise in oil shale mining. Thus, today we see the flat because the final agreement will be announced tomorrow, on the oil market, and next week the growth of quotations.
EUR / USD recommendation: Flat 1, 1580 -1.1645.
