OPEC Just Knocked $20 Off Its Oil Price Outlook

Submitted by Nick Cunningham via,

OPEC warned in newly released report that oil prices might not rise above $60 per barrel until the end of the decade, in an acknowledgement that an array of bearish forces will conspire to keep a lid on any price rally.

OPEC's new World Oil Outlook (WOO) offers medium and long-term predictions for the oil market. OPEC's Reference Basket (ORB) price will average $40 per barrel this year, and the group projects that the price will rise by $5 per barrel each year through the rest of the decade. That only takes ORB prices up to $60 per barrel in 2020.

That is a remarkable prediction from a group of oil-exporting countries, often known for a much more bullish outlook for oil. There are a few reasons that OPEC is more resigned to a "lower for longer" mantra.

OPEC admitted that things have not gone according to plan since it decided to abandon market intervention in November 2014. The group, led by Saudi Arabia, thought that low oil prices would stoke demand and also push out high-cost producers, two predictions that did not play out, at least to the degree that top OPEC officials predicted. "While analysts initially anticipated that lower oil prices would have a positive impact on global economic growth, the reality is that the overall impact has been neutral. Scars from the economic crisis such as high household debt levels, fiscal imbalances and high unemployment, combined with industry investment cuts, have limited the propensity to consume," OPEC wrote in its WOO report.

U.S. gasoline demand did hit a record high this year, but it took two years of low prices to reach that level and oil consumption lagged behind the huge spike in miles traveled, an indication tha ...

First Brexit, Now Trump ... What's Next?

CNN's ("Clinton News Network") Jake Tapper hit the nail on the head last night, as he was speaking about why people voted for Trump.

Tapper said that most Americans are sick of the income inequality, globalization, and politics-as-usual that the status quo have given us.

He even pointed out that only a handful of people have gotten rich off of globalization, and a lot of people have been left behind.

Similarly, Brexit - the other recent vote which went against all political forecasts - was largely a vote by those who lost out on the benefits of globalization ... that only a handful of fatcats really profited from.

Leaders of the Brexit campaign noted the confluence of the two votes:

Jeremy Corbyn described Mr Trump's victory as "an unmistakable rejection of political establishment".

Ukip leader Nigel Farage - who went to the US to appear at a Trump campaign rally - said he was handing over his mantle as the creator of political earthquakes to the new President, saying that 2016 was "the year of two great political revolutions", adding: "I thought Brexit was big, but boy, this looks like it's going to be even bigger".

President Obama Explains Why It's All Hillary's (And Putin's) Fault - Live Feed

Having exclaimed for months on the campaign trail that he'd consider Donald Trump's election a personal repudiation, President Obama is face with the harsh reality that it was him that was "peddling fiction" while 'rome' burned. We suspect the blame-mongering will begin very quickly as former Obama senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer tweeted last night: "The most shocking part of tonight is the number of people who approve of Obama but didn't vote for Hillary Clinton." The question is - will Obama move to Canada.

This is what the media promised...

But it didn't work out that way...

President Obama is due to speak at 1215ET...

As Politico concludes so eloquently, this was supposed to be an "I-don't-want-this-so-I-guess-I'll-take-that" election. No. America really wanted Trump to be its 45th president, as little as Obama and so many others can believe it or understand it.

"We have to figure out ...
