first_imgU.S. President Donald Trump’s tweets about OPEC and oil prices are more likely to worry the market and put upward pressure on prices than reassure it.Trump’s interventions with tweets “unsettle” the market and appear to have pushed prices up, Standard Chartered Plc energy analyst Emily Ashford and head of commodities research Paul Horsnell wrote in a note Tuesday. With oil prices rising ahead of U.S. November midterm elections, Trump has tweeted his frustration three times to no avail.Two posts on Twitter in June criticized OPEC prices for being too high. In the most recent tweet on June 30, Trump claimed that he and Saudi Arabian King Salman Bin Abdulaziz agreed to a 2-million-barrel production increase, but the White House later backpedaled. Those tweets implied that supply deficits will require all of the world’s remaining spare production capacity to come online, according to Standard Charted.This most recent Twitter post also made it look like U.S. policy is reliant on Saudi Arabia’s spare capacity to fill global supply gaps, the analysts wrote.If Trump’s tweets are taken as policy, it means the U.S. is assuming a 2 million barrel-a-day increase is readily available from the Saudis, a relationship that has already been leveraged “to the maximum extent.” But in reality, Horsnell and Ashford write that there is probably “little more” than 700,000 barrels available in the short-medium term.Saudi Arabia’s crude output reached 10.3 million barrels a day in June, and the bank doubts the country can sustain an increase above 11 million in 2018.“U.S. oil diplomacy has at points in the past been highly successful in calming oil markets, and it has generally been more successful the quieter it has been,” the analysts wrote.source:Bloomberg Author: Sue Terpilowskilast_img read more

first_imgSpanish striker Bienvenido Marañon of Ceres-Negros Football Club says their approach will remain the same against Persija Jakarta of Indonesia. ABS-CBN SPORTS CERES-Negros Football Club aims to solidify its hold of the top spot in the group stage when it faces Persija Jakarta of Indonesia in the 2019 AFC Cup tonight at the Panaad Park and Stadium in Bacolod City.Ceres-Negros currently holds the top spot of Group G with six points on two victories, while the visiting Persija Jakarta is at second place with four points on one victory and a draw.Ceres-Negros head coach Risto Vidakovic admitted that they are still groping for form after not having a competitive game since their 3-1 win over Becamex Binh Duong of Vietnam last March 13.“It was not easy to prepare but we have a game plan for this one,” Vidakovic said. “It was very hard for us because it is still preseason and we did not play a competitive game for two weeks.” Spanish striker Bienvenido Marañon, for his part, said their approach remains the same against the Indonesians and that they will continue to work even harder as the season progresses.“We have to control everything, and we have to be focused. If other teams will try to target me, there’s many good players that we have and they can do a good job,” Maranon said.The Ceres-Negros and Persija Jakarta match is slated at 7:30 p.m. tonight and will be shown live on national TV on the 5Plus channel and on cable TV via Fox Sports 2./PNlast_img read more

first_imgCompeted with Kante for the man-of-the-match award with a confident display. He was full of running, in both defence and attack, scored a brilliant goal, almost had another on the break and defended without alarm. The rousing ovation he received when he was substituted late on was fully justified.Diego Costa: 8For the second consecutive match, the striker kept his temper in check and was just as effective as when he is at his most prickly. He played percentages with his goal, doing just about enough to score, and held up play effectively and selflessly, showing great touch and awareness throughout.Nathaniel Chalobah: 7Settled without any fuss after coming on for the final quarter of the match and caught the eye with the sumptuous pass for the third goal, which was brilliantly taken by Moses. Looked comfortable and calm in first-team surroundings. Click here for the latest Chelsea transfer gossip He did not put a foot wrong, once again slotting into the back three with consummate ease. The Spaniard defended his space and showed impeccable judgement as to when to try to nick possession. He will, however, face much sterner tests.Gary Cahill: 7Solid and dependable in defence and used the ball with good tempo, as well as playing with impressive purpose when bringing the ball out.David Luiz: 7Embed from Getty Images Unfortunate not to score with a breathtaking free-kick that hit the post and he played with typical attacking intent. But he did have a couple of nervy moments when he got caught too far forward trying to win possession – and also nearly put through his own net when his sliding attempt to prevent a cross saw the ball strike the upright.Marcos Alonso: 8He was excellent before the break, showing a full range of passing, supporting Eden Hazard and getting into the box to make an extra man. He was a little less involved after the interval but defended solidly and could have scored after a late burst, only to blast his shot over.Nemanja Matic: 8Embed from Getty Images Chelsea made light work of Premier League champions Leicester City at Stamford Bridge, cruising to a 3-0 win. Here’s how we rated the players in Saturday’s home victory.Thibaut Courtois: 6Barely involved. Used the ball effectively on a couple of occasions, but didn’t have a shot to save.AdChoices广告Cesar Azpilicueta: 8Embed from Getty Images The Spaniard was involved throughout and played a full part in Chelsea’s first-half dominance. He stretched the away defence with regular runs in behind and was equally dangerous taking on players with ball at his feet.Eden Hazard: 8Always involved and always demanding possession, he was a little over-casual with the ball at times but was still excellent. Took full advantage of his lucky break to score the second goal and immediately dedicated it to his grieving team-mate Willian.Victor Moses: 9Embed from Getty Imagescenter_img Ads by Revcontent Trending Articles Exclusive: People Are Becoming Rich Using This Profit System x This Bizarre Photo Caused Mayhem, Try Not to Gasp when You See Why x Easy Way to Generate Extra Income x Last Nights Episode Left Viewers Speechless! x Chilling Photos Taken Moments Before It All Goes Wrong x 39 Eye-opening Photos Smuggled out of North Korea x Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook He was as good as he been in months, pressing high up the pitch, winning possession and driving his attacking trio with numerous surges from the deep-lying role. He helped create Hazard’s goal with a positive pass and could easily have scored a couple himself.N’Golo Kante: 9Was outstanding on his first appearance against his former club, showing the main reason why Leicester are struggling.
