Нефть Brent. Жду вниз

Пока сырьевые, фондовые рынки растут, показывая локальные и исторические максимумы, а информационные агентства готовят наc к 80$. Я предлагаю абстрагировано, используя технический анализ сделать вывод: куда пойдет нефть в ближайшее время.В предыдущем прогнозе мы добрались до критических сопротивлений, которая отделяет нас от зоны пробоя и ускорения тренда вверх (возможен ложный пробой, ну как всегда в нефти). Нефть 1W Увеличить Есть две зоны коррекции. Это уровни 62-63$. И более глубокой — 55$. Что вероятно по срокам будет ближе лету. Нефть 1D УвеличитьНа дневном графике я предполагаю возможные зоны для снятия локальной перепроданности: 68-67$. Далее будет решаться вся судьба этого тренда: прорыв зоны вверх в зону 70$ и закрепелние либо коррекция на уровни  62-63$ Детали 15 дней.  Крупнее Вывод: 1. В пользу сильного снижения отчеты COT. Но через набор коротких позиций, которым необходимо время. 2. В пользу дальнейшего движения — тренд. Но вот вопрос: на чем? Когда на 10 лонг контрактов приходится 0,74 шортИтог: Продолжаю удерживать короткую позицию в нефти, длинную в доллар/рубль. И лося тоже.

Unveiling the Future of Liberty

Earlier today, I was honored to join Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew and Deputy Secretary Sarah Bloom Raskin to unveil designs for the 2017 American Liberty Gold Coin. The unveiling not only marked a historic milestone for the allegorical Lady Liberty, who has been featured on American coinage since the late 1790s, but also served to kick-off the Mint’s 225th anniversary—a year-long public awareness campaign about its mission, facilities and employees. I am very proud of the fact that the United States Mint is rooted in the Constitution. Our founding fathers realized the critical need for our fledgling nation to have a respected monetary system, and over the last 225 years, the Mint has never failed in its mission to enable America’s growth and stability by protecting assets entrusted to us and manufacturing coins and medals to facilitate national commerce. We have chosen “Remembering our Past, Embracing the Future” as the Mint’s theme for our 225th Anniversary year. This beautiful coin truly embodies that theme. The coin demonstrates our roots in the past through such traditional elements as the inscriptions United States of America, Liberty, E Pluribus Unum and In God We Trust. We boldly look to the future by casting Liberty in a new light, as an African-American woman wearing a crown of stars, looking forward to ever brighter chapters in our Nation’s history book. The 2017 American Liberty Gold Coin is the first in a series of 24-karat gold coins the United States Mint will issue biennially. These coins will feature designs that depict an allegorical Liberty in a variety of contemporary forms including designs representing Asian-Americans, Hispanic-Americans, and Indian-Americans among others to reflect the cultural and ethnic diversity of the United States.​ 2017 American Liberty Gold Coin obverse (left) and reverse (right).

Soloist Alexis Sánchez still out of tune with his Arsenal team-mates | Nick Ames

Manchester City’s injury problems and the sourcing of replacements will only increase speculation about the forward’s Arsenal futureCan’t live with him, can’t live without him. To some of an Arsenal stripe Alexis Sánchez has long since crossed the line from shimmering genius to incorrigible soloist and dressing-room malcontent; to others he remains the primary source of light in a team whose default setting, certainly in away fixtures such as this, has become insidiously stodgy.On an evening that came to be dominated by Mike Dean’s interpretation of the handball law, there were few definitive clues as to how Arsenal might best proceed in January, when their talisman’s future will be under harsher scrutiny than ever. Once again, their most telling flourish came from his boot; once again, it would have masked deeper issues had they been allowed to see out the win. Continue reading...

VIRTUALLY EVERY DAY OF 2016, SOMEBODY IN DOJ DC WAS GIVING MONEY TO HILLARY: More than 2,600 individual donations were to the Clinton campaign by donors who listed the Department of Justice or one of its elements, like the FBI, as their employers. Their contributions totaled more than $416,000. Trump got a little more than $20,000 […]

Mullen: Threat of nuclear war with North Korea heightened

Mike Mullen, former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said Sunday that the U.S. is closer to nuclear war with North Korea than ever before, an example of America's adversaries taking advantage of the "uncertainty" of President Donald Trump's leadership."Those that would do us ill seem to be able to take advantage of the uncertainty as well, and you mentioned both Russia and China, and my expectations that will continue to be the case for them as well as Iran and North Korea," Mullen told Martha Raddatz on ABC's "This Week." "We're actually closer, in my view, to a nuclear war with North Korea and in that region than we have ever been."Mullen, a retired admiral who served as chairman under both President George W. Bush and Barack Obama, said he has watched top administration officials like national security adviser H.R. McMaster, Defense Secretary James Mattis and White House chief of staff John Kelly try to quell some of the uncertainty by getting the president to make decision that go against his instinct. But Mullen is not sure if such a approach is sustainable."My concern is how long that actually lasts," he said.The long-term question, Mullen said is whether the American people continue to support the institutions and norms that he sees Trump undermining — an approach that has led to some of the uncertainty that North Korea, Russia and other countries are taking advantage of.Outside of his criticism of the current president, Mullen hinted at lingering tension over Obama's handling of Iranian protests in 2009. In light of current unrest in the country, some commentators have said the administration should have been more vocal about its support for the protesters then and not have put so much stock in building diplomatic ties with Iranian leaders.Trump and his administration have been vocal in their pronouncements that the "world is watching" Iran and whether it or not it respects the rights of protesters voicing their frustration with the country's economy."I think that the 2009 time frame is very instructive," Mullen said. "I think we chose to not be as supportive as we could have been then. And I hope we can be right now so that Iran can continue to evolve."

AT&T building: the threat to New York’s ‘tablet of stone’

Philip Johnson’s 80s AT&T skyscraper on Madison Avenue is a Manhattan landmark. Now plans are afoot to turn it into a glass-fronted shopping arcade…Philip Johnson, the most influential American architect for much of the 20th century, was a terrible man and a mostly terrible architect. If his most obvious crime was his warm embrace of Nazism in the 1930s, he was also manipulative, self-dealing and cynical. His buildings are paltry in their detail, strangely draining architectural form into a spiritless cipher of itself – “thin-lipped”, as the British critic Reyner Banham put it – often plain clumsy, tone-deaf to the poetries of materials and light, their sense of scale awkward. His buildings are derivative, albeit in such a brilliantly timed way that they appear to lead the movements they in fact follow.His greatest genius and significance was as a cultural politician, broker and string-puller, a man who, with the help of his inherited wealth and network of connections, could launch or end styles and make or break careers. As the architectural historian Charles Jencks once said, some time before Johnson’s death aged 98 in 2005, he “is a good whatever-he-is. Philip has ruined a lot of movements. He goes in and asset-strips.” He did much to create the hollow phenomenon of the starchitect, the man (it’s usually a man) whose work, once he has been declared a great architect, must self-evidently also be considered great.

Sydney Opera House theatre reopens with The Merry Widow – in pictures

The Sydney Opera House’s Joan Sutherland theatre reopens on Sunday with Opera Australia’s production of The Merry Widow, starring Australian-born soprano Danielle de Niese and directed and choreographed by Graeme Murphy. The theatre was closed from May to December 2017. The latest renovations are the most significant since the Opera House opened in 1973 and include a new theatre flying system, a more flexible hoist system as well as a new bridge for rigging lights. The opening night of The Merry Widow coincides with New Year’s Eve, so an interval has planned to allow opera-lovers to watch the fireworks. Continue reading...

That Rhian Brewster issued a wake-up call is both worrying and inspiring | Daniel Taylor

By taking a stand over racial abuse he has received, Liverpool’s 17-year-old striker shames those who run the game but offers hope for the next generationIt isn’t easy knowing whether the people occupying football’s ivory towers have actually noted what Rhian Brewster has had to say in the past few days. Unless I have missed it, the executives at Uefa and Fifa have not uttered a word in response and, frankly, that is no surprise whatsoever. Anyone calling Uefa since 22 December would get a cheery answerphone message saying its offices are closed and the lights are out until 4 January. Fifa, meanwhile, is on its own extended Christmas break. “Hope you are not in a hurry,” one of its press aides told me.

Саудовская Аравия с января 2015 года снижает поставочные цены на нефть для США и Азии

ЛОНДОН, 4 декабря. /ТАСС/. Саудовская Аравия с января 2015 года снизит поставочные цены на нефть для США и Азии. Об этом сообщает агентство Bloomberg. Стоимость нефти Arab Light снижена на $2 за баррель. Как ранее сообщал Wall Street Journal со ссылкой на источники, Саудовская Аравия не намерена сокращать объемы добычи нефти и рассматривает в качестве допустимой для себя цену барреля Brent в $60. Крупнейший производитель нефти в рядах ОПЕК Саудовская Аравия считает, что нефтяные цены способны стабилизироваться в районе $60 за баррель. Эр-Рияд и другие страны Персидского залива уверены, что способны выдержать этот ценовой уровень", - пишет издание. Страны Персидского залива не установили для себя определенную целевую цену барреля, и если она упадет ниже $60, то длительное время на данном уровне не продержится, говорит источник WSJ. По мнению источников газеты, нынешний подход Саудовской Аравии означает, что в ближайшей перспективе она не пойдет на сокращение добычи, даже если цены на нефть продолжат падение. Глава "Роснефти" Игорь Сечин также допускает, что цена нефти может упасть до $60 за баррель и ниже в первой половине 2015 года. В интервью австрийской Die Presse, опубликованном 27 ноября, он отметил, что у "Роснефти" достаточно запасов и места для маневра.
