Exchange news. The issue of possible default in Greece is extremely topical. Last weekend Athens officially claimed that the country cannot cut its expenditures, as required by the agreements. This, in its turn, casts doubt on the possibility of Greece to receive mutual assistance credit from European Central Bank.
This discouraging claim was followed by a less shocking claim from the European Union management. To be more specific, this claim concerned a temporary suspension with deciding to provide another money tranche to Athens. It had been expected that the decision of providing financial aid would be announced during a special meeting on October 13, but it has just been revealed that there will be no meeting. The decision of providing money trance is expected to be announced during the summit of European Union leaders on October 17.
Unfortunately, this proves that this year Greece is unable to change budget deficit according to the requirements. However, Athens keep worsening their condition by discussing economy measures with ECB, as their main target is to receive 8 mln. Euro from the credit that was confirmed in 2010. Another wave of recession is likely to start because of complicated and lasting negotiations between ECB and Greece. Quotations of Brent and WTI oil futures have immediately reacted to this by a more than 1 dollar decline.
Perspectives of economic growth influence oil price. At this point, signals about countries’ negative development are many. It concerns countries in Europe, the USA, and developing countries, such as China, which eased the loss of world economy in 2008.
Brent grade oil prices are currently checking the support of 101 dollar per barrel, as explained by the analytics of Forex Academy and Masterforex-V Futures Trade and Stock Exchange. This is the fourth attempt for 5 months. Passing the level will make it possible to reach the target of 90 dollars per barrel.
