9:21 am
claim was a deliberate league for the sake of political gain one former foreign service officer at the state department believes the now public documents paint the president as a hypocrite. leaking information it papers you is not unique to obama i think what's unique here are two things first the secrecy of these infor of this information the stuxnet worm the things that are going on in iran bush the raid that killed bin ladin information came out in those instances that was beyond top secret and was known to bury people that's something new coupled with obama's aggressive persecution of whistleblowers his use of the espionage act that's the other side of this story and it's the other thing that's unique in this case obama's ratings go up he watches the polls very carefully they put out that super mation that he practically does these things himself with his bloody hands and its popularity goes up so this information was being kept secret from who from us the

american people and is being released now who incidentally in the run up to a contested election to make obama look like superman superman was what on his hands and somehow that now appeals to american voters. big business news day spain's borrowing costs a fresh moody's cup we'll talk about that on their own with you to make trade also oil in the spotlight as well prices been pretty low lately that's going to affect russia or i guess eyes are going to change well that could actually change because we're having in one hour's time and we're having a meeting in there in vienna of the opec nations that it's all about production quote says so you know these could be moved this or that way i've increased the decrease depending on who gives in to whom you know which side let's actually talk more about that with. oil and gas analysts that renascence capital in london and yeah good to see you so what do you expect to come out of the various well what do you expect to come out of that meeting in vienna today well. interest in them
9:23 am
enough not much at all i mean our expectations and the expectations of the of the broader market are that the existing thirty million barrel of a quality will not be changed if you look at that fundamentally hundred dollar oil . it has it's a good balancing point it's good for producers because it's not leading to demand destruction and that's good for the countries that put the biggest tokens humors because it is low enough not to slow down the coming growth and the saudis have been specifically targets in this kind of hundred dollar plus minus five box range so it seems like the status quo is here to stay so you don't think that countries like venezuela and iran could have some weight in pushing production to be to be decreased. not valium in the future if you look at the way the balance of power doesn't work to live down the cartel over the past several years the one the only poor idea that can swing the policy appen down have been the saudi is because they are the only country with a substantial enough spare capacity that is not being utilized right now and they
9:24 am
they you know they had just that well rise may take in the capacity bring it on the market and take it off the market and actually if you if you look what has been happening over the past ones and you can see it from the i e bay that the saudis have gradually started to take some of the capacity of the market a little bit now they still have a place in the volumes that have disappeared because of the and sanctions so the market is adequately supplied but they have been lifting the prize that they've been asking for their cargoes a little bit easier by incentivizing the consumers to cut back on their purchases so iran sanctions are just a fortnight away from coming into force factor has been priced in already you know . yeah i think i think that is what we don't know the way then why it is going to work exactly but just in terms of any place in the volumes i think the saudis will be more than capable of a placing you know placing whatever has come on the market so far i mean right now the exports have always that are from two and a half million a year also they have the one on the half with no evidence that option and that in
9:25 am
the in the global crude market and if you you know if you think if you think the last year. they lived and civil war as they can one point six. a million barrels a day of production capacity of the morning. but i stayed you know what and there is a number in the outer ones because the gulf states were able to. write your colleagues at credit suisse bank today issued their forecast for the oil price saying that global imbalances right now much worse than seen in two thousand they may expect prices to fall to fifty dollars a barrel what do you think about that i mean typically typically we do not comment on competition that is serious but to me. it is we have seen oil at fifty dollars a level it's not the brought that out of the possibilities but i find it difficult imagining that anyone in there you know what then they exist in supply demand environment would be taking fifty dollars
9:26 am
a barrel as their base case. you know that's the spare capacity is still very limited as it is at the end of the day is going to be they haven't but by what happens to the demand both in china and europe but i mean if you're talking about fifty dollars oil your talking about cool but it would be economic collapse and i might not be an economist and you know i'm just i'm just an oil analyst but they don't think we're going to work close to that yeah all right india all of the senior oil and gas and those that are nation's capital in london thank you so much for your time i think for that move quickly over to some market figures we've got time for that oil right now is looking at above eighty three dollars per barrel barely from light sweet sub half a dollar and brands is moving downwards they have been very much in correlation lately so we'll see what happens next when we have maybe some of the some information from that big news and you were talking about now in europe european markets also moving down was around more than hospice center this is moody's as we
9:27 am
mentioned earlier in the program downgraded spain's rates by three knowledge is near junk status and we did see bonds go up above seven percent which. a new europe era high but they've now come back down to greece is actually feeling much better is up around seven percent the market ahead of its crucial elections and finally in russia we're seeing the ideas in the my six decline around how the percent but that's kind of logical it's a correction after several sessions of gains we've seen the previous week one of the best weeks of this year and the moving there my six financial stocks are leading the losses with bt down point eight percent well lukoil is actually now up a quarter of a percent despite easing off the oil price. rise or we have time for this i'll be back in one hour science to tell you more ok thanks very much to be true coming up to expert opinion fear about what the future holds for debt ridden europe after you brought your world today with the latest news headlines live from our team or sco
