This week started with the talk of the United States banning Russian oil exports, so XBR/USD saw $130 a barrel. Then the ban became reality. What does it really mean for the market?
Will the oil prices rise?
The organization of the petroleum exporting countries (OPEC) and non-OPEC oil producers (Russia) will meet on July 1-2. The press conference of OPEC members is scheduled at 18:00 MT time on Monday, while the final joint press conference of all producers is expected on Tuesday at 14:00 MT time. The countries will decide on the extension of the ongoing production cuts. As the cuts failed to curb the oversupply in the first half of the year, it would be interesting to look at the next steps by OPEC+, especially by Russia and Saudi Arabia. Will the countries succeed in making the oil prices higher?
• If OPEC+ extends the production cuts, the oil prices will go up;
• If OPEC+ fails to extend the production cuts, the oil prices will go down.
Note, that you need to choose BRN-19Q to trade Brent and WTI-19Q to trade WTI in the MT4 platform

The Federal Reserve (Fed) will announce its Interest Rate Decision and make a statement about the future monetary policy on Wednesday, September 21, GMT+3. After the higher-than-expected inflation numbers published on September 13, there’s almost no doubt the Federal Reserve will come up with another 75-basis-point rate hike. However, surprised by the CPI numbers, several Fed members announced the possibility of a 100-basis-point rate hike on Wednesday.
Every week we expect many interesting events that can shake the market.
