    Damascus may have dodged a bullet (or a cruise missile), but nothing else has changed very much. Not in terms of risk.

    That explains why the "Syrian Premium" remains. It may be slightly reduced, as you'll see. But it is likely to stay with us even after the threat of a military solution has been averted.

  • Oil Forecast: The "Syrian Premium" Is Not Temporary By an apparent agreement to place its chemical weapons under international control, Syria seems to have dodged an imminent American military attack.

    Yet even as the world takes a step back from the brink, three critical questions still remain:

    1. Will Syrian President Bashar Assad hand over all of his chemical weapons?

    2. Will the proposed international control mechanisms satisfy Washington?

    3. Will the final result contained in the U.N. report on the chemical weapons use outside of Damascus alter the outcome?

    Of course, until the latest news hit, one result had seemed certain: The global oil market was bracing for higher prices. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) closed at a 28-month high on Friday, while Brent crossed the $116 a barrel level.

    Following the agreement, that trend has reversed, sending oil prices in both New York and London lower.

    But has this crisis really been defused?

    There's an uneasy lull in the Syrian crisis.

    Now that the Obama administration has decided to seek Congressional approval for a Syrian strike, we are in a hazy period before some major decisions are made.

    And while a Senate committee has approved a military move against Syria, further action will be slow to come. Congress is officially on recess until Monday.

  • How Syria Affects Oil Prices Today Gasoline pump left Q

    As U.S. military personnel prepare for possible action against Syria, Brent oil prices are hovering near an 18-month high.

    On Thursday, Brent oil prices retreated slightly, but remained elevated, after starting the day above $116 a barrel. Prices for West Texas Intermediate (WTI) also retreated by a little more than 1%, closing the day at $108.80.

    Brent prices have climbed steadily following escalations across Egypt and the ousting of President Mohamed Morsi.

    Meanwhile, in the United States, improved infrastructure and greater network access have fueled WTI prices to near par with Brent this month.

    But Brent prices have spiked this week following news that the West may intervene in Syria, where a chemical attack was allegedly launched against civilians.

    Despite warnings from Russia and China, it remains unclear whether the United States will intervene. However, any action is likely to set off a chain reaction across the Middle East and could affect trade within the region, especially on oil shipments.

    Here are the details on how Syria affects oil prices, what that means for you - and how to profit.

  • Jim Rogers on Why Oil and Gold Are Headed "Much Higher" Ammo AK47 q

    Legendary commodity investor Jim Rogers sees some serious problems stemming from the situation in Syria and the end of the Fed's generous flow of money.

    In an interview with Reuters on Tuesday, Rogers said "oil and gold will go much, much higher" due to a "market panic."

    "I own oil, I own gold, I own things like that and if there is going to be a war, and it sounds like America is desperate to have a war, they're going to go much, much higher," Rogers said. "Stocks are going to go down, some of the markets that I'm sure are already going down, commodities are going to go up. I'm not particularly keen on war, I assure you, but it sounds like they want it."

    Rogers continued, "No matter how well the plans are made, strange things happen in war and who knows what unintended consequence will come."

    Equities have been hit hard over worries of a war with Syria. The rout started late Monday following comments from U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry that the United States has a moral obligation to act on Syria's chemical weapon attacks. Selling picked up steam Tuesday with the Dow plunging 170 points.
