Sorry to sound so down about the Ukraine situation but my understanding is this will escalate. Next tip is fix your energy prices for as long as possible. I am not sure but wold expect a clause in the terms and conditions that allows energy companies to put fixed term prices up due to war? A sniff of issues and prices will increase, Germany is the most to be affected, we will get supplied by the US and Arabs with Norway helping out but some closer will have it harder. Once the US gets going no stopping, only 2% of their trade is with Russia. NATO has planes in the air, fighters moving in and shale gas production at its highest levels ever, funny that, enough to supply some of Europe. The US will attempt of required to bankrupt Russia, no question, probably not a great time for markets, go safe.
Rise imminent as sanctions come?
Russia will not give up the the Crimea area. They are digging in and over coming all Ukrainian army areas. They have a level of support locally and whilst totally illegal they will carry on. So are we ready for the sanctions. The EU and USA will put sanctions into place, they have no choice and they will start to push harder and harder as time goes by. As sanctions are announced markets will get fearful, commodities will increase and everyone will start to find sources of raw material. This might be a time for mining stocks? We shall see
Its quite hear today
You could hear a lump of coal fall lol
Mid tier here we come!
RE: Just thought I'd look at latest..
Hopefully, we've ratted out some of the negative posters on this board. They've gone out of their way to ruin this, but it seems the Friday rise has slapped them in the face. This is a good share, with good prospects and a big future. GLA!
Ukraine crisis and sanctions
Its now not the actual thought of outright war and conflict that will cause issues but the threat and potential increase in sanctions over time. If Russia doesn't leave the western world is talking itself into sanctions otherwise it will be seen as weak and the US has very little to loose due to current trading amounts The politicians are starting to talk up sanctions, impacts on gas and that overtime it could be an issue and prices will rise. Coal will therefore substitute along with US gas coming to the European aid and the Arabs won't be far behind. For the sake of people I hope it ends well, in business terms the next few weeks could be very interesting.
