CNBC Pro: Goldman Sachs Raises Crude Oil Price Outlook After ‘OPEC+ Challenges the West’

Oil prices will rise by the end of this year, according to Goldman Sachs.

Barclays: Stocks are swinging from prices and calming the dollar, but it’s not out of the woods yet

Barclays European equity strategists noted on Wednesday that a temporary calm in prices and the US dollar had provided some relief to “oversold” stocks.

“Amid signs of financial stress, we may be closer to the pain threshold for central banks, but we believe that the dovish pivots require more evidence of weak growth and a decisive drop in inflation, so we suspect equities are not at risk yet,” said Emmanuel Kao, head of European stock strategy at Barclays.

Cau suggested that the stock market’s retracement bar is too low, with major indices down 25%-30%, sentiment still “bearish” and the fourth quarter typically presenting “positive seasonality”. However, he noted, the “growth policy trade-off” is still difficult.

“While de-risking has gone a long way, unmotivated capitulation may continue to mitigate hard-down fears. High, sticky inflation limits the ability of central banks to make a turn and tolerate early easing in financial conditions, even as recession approaches,” Kao said.

“As we have seen in the UK, though, credit pressures are important to the reaction function of central banks and we may have touched the pain threshold, but markets should not confuse financial stability for monetary stimulus – for the end of easy money broad ramifications are just emerging. right Now “.

Mizuho: OPEC+ production cut confirms ‘explicit desire for price recovery’

The decision of OPEC and its allies Production cut by 2 million barrels per day Vishnu Varathan, head of economics and strategy at Mizuho Bank, stresses the group’s explicit desire for a price recovery, not just support.

He wrote that a supply cut of around 1 million barrels per day would have resulted in price gains without compromising on volumes, but that the larger cut shows “the alliance’s disregard for economic problems, and its geopolitical alignment with global partners.” .

“What might be said as an opportunistic gamble that exploits the kinks of the geopolitical show for self-interest, is now in danger of being construed as an affront to the United States and its allies (in protest of Russia’s price cap plans) that are in line with Russia,” he added.
