Biden: Putin is setting up a rational to go much deeper into Ukraine. This is an invasion

Biden hitting Putin meme

  • This is a flagrant violation of international law
  • We are prepared to go further if Putin goes further
  • Notes that Putin said today that he will go further than separatist-held areas
  • As promised, Nord Stream 2 will not move forward
  • Russia will pay a steeper price if it moves forward
  • US imposing full blocking sanctions on two Russian banks (VEB and Military Bank)
  • Imposing sanctions on Russian elites and family members
  • Will implement sanctions on on Russian sovereign debt
  • Says he still believes Russia plans a deeper invasion (but says he hopes he’s wrong)

These sanctions aren’t a big deal. We’re seeing a bounce in risk assets.

If Russia doesn’t go further into Ukraine, this is the extent of it. Obviously, Biden believes this is just the start and no one really knows. That’s the state of play right now.

We will go back to watching what happens on the ground. Putin said Ukraine has 60,000 soldiers near Donbas so we’ll have to wait and see what they do.

Crude Oil

Crude oil is the most popular tradable instrument in the energy sector, offering exposure to global market conditions, geopolitical risk, and economics. The instrument is strategically relied upon and situated in the global economy. Crude oil has proven to be a unique option for traders given volatility and the efficacy of both swing trading and longer-term strategies. Despite its popularity, crude oil is a very complex
investing instrument, given the litany of fluctuations in oil prices, risk, and impact of politics stemming from OPEC. Short for the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries, OPEC operates as an intergovernmental organization of 13 countries, helping set and dictate the global oil market.How to Trade Crude Oil Crude oil is most commonly traded as an exchange-traded fund (ETF) or through other instruments with exposure to it. This includes energy stocks, the USD/CAD, and other investing options. Crude oil itself is traded across a duality of markets, including the West Texas Intermediate Crude (WTI) and Brent crude. Brent is the more relied upon index in recent years, while WTI is more heavily traded across futures trading at the time of writing. Other than geopolitical events or decisions by OPEC, crude oil can move due to a variety of different ways.  The most basic is through simple supply and demand, which is affected by global output. Increased industrial output, economic prosperity, and other factors all play a role in crude prices. By extension, recessions, lockdowns, or other stifling factors can also influence crude prices. For example, an oversupply or mitigated demand due to the aforementioned factors would result in lower crude prices. This is due to traders selling crude oil futures or other instruments.  Should demand rise or production plateau, traders will bid increasingly on crude, whereby driving prices up.
