Matt Badiali’s Prediction on the Oil Market due to Iran’s Sanctions

Matt Badiali explains how the sanctions by America against Iran are likely to affect the oil prices. The sanctions that took effect on November 2018 resulted from Iran’s withdrawal from the nuclear deal. The American President, Donald Trump and his administration believe that imposing sanctions against Iran by restraining Iran’s military and its political activities in the Middle East would reverse Iran’s decision. Matt Badiali explains that the effects of the sanction would have an impact on the oil prices starting next year. However, President Trump believes that the sanctions will not affect the fuel prices, but according to Matt Badiali the American market will feel the effects. The sanctions target the Iranian exports, insurers, bank and port operators working with Iran.

America has warned the owners of these businesses that their continuous working with Iran would lead to cancellation of their financial systems with America. Due to its broader economy, many countries will discontinue collaborating with Iran to be on the safe side. The oil industry experienced a minimal reaction after the passing of the sanction because America allowed some eight countries to continue working with Iran for six more months. The six states have 75 percent of Iran’s oil demands meaning that the sanctions’ effects will not affect for the six months. The countries in business with Iran include South Korea, Japan, India, Taiwan, Turkey, China, Greece, and Italy. However, Matt Badiali says that many of these countries had stopped Oil importation from Iran some months back, but they have resumed which would have already made the oil situation worse.

Baddiali explains that the crude oil from Iran declined to 1.6 million barrels from 2.5 million barrels per day between April and October. However, Saudi Arabia and the United States increased their production, therefore; the oil market has enough oil. Matt Badiali is an investment adviser, geologist, and an analyst.
