Apa pun, kita kena get ready di mana kalau harga minyak dunia naik, ekonomi mungkin akan kembali teruk....bukan sahaja kesannya kepada dunia, tapi kepada Malaysia juga...kita tgk aja la, last year masa Kerajaan naikkan harga minyak kepada RM2.70, rakyat dah mula bising...peruncit, toke2 restoran mula ambik kesempatan naikkan harga mendadak....apakah kesanya kepada kita? sakitttt....
Kesannya kepada duit minyak kita camnaa pulak? lari budget...so apakah persediaan yg kita mampu buat?
Antara yang mampu kupikirkan adalah:
1) Start kumpul minyak dlm tong besar, haha...
2) Mulalah simpan duit (invest) dalam saham2 minyak
3) Invest dlm gold, sbb gold biasanya berkadar terus dengan harga minyak
4) Pasang NGV dalam kereta anda, sementara harga NGV system tgh murah, hehe....

Oil hovers above $73 ahead of OPEC meeting

Oil prices hovered above $73 a barrel Monday ahead of an
OPEC meeting where investors expect the cartel to keep production levels
By mid-afternoon in Europe, benchmark crude for January
delivery was up 14 cents to $73.50 in electronic trading on the New York
Mercantile Exchange. The January contract, which expires later on Monday, rose
71 cents to settle at $73.36 on Friday.
Traders also have begun to watch
the February contract, which was up 43 cents to $74.85 on Monday.
Leaders of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries reiterated
Monday that the group doesn't plan to change output levels at its meeting
Tuesday in Luanda, Angola,
OPEC Secretary General Abdalla Salem El-Badri
of Libya said there is consensus within the oil-producing bloc to maintain its
production targets into 2010, indicating the group plans to hold output steady.
"There is a consensus that there is no change," el-Badri told reporters
when asked about OPEC's output plans at the upcoming meeting in Luanda. Even for
next year, he said, changes to output are "not on our radar at this time."
El-Badri said prices are "very comfortable" for now, reflecting a
sentiment sounded by several of the group's oil ministers in recent weeks.
Crude prices have staged an incredible turnaround in the past year, more
than doubling from a low near $35 a barrel to trade to a zone many producing
countries say they're happy with.
"The market would be surprised if
there was any change to output," said Clarence Chu, a trader with Hudson Capital
Energy in Singapore. "At near $75, the price is high enough to fund governments
and investment, but not so high it damages the global economic recovery."
Iraq took back a remote oil well from Iranian forces over the weekend, a
confrontation that briefly sent oil prices higher Friday on investor concerns
about a wider conflict, although analysts quickly excluded a lasting impact on
"There are continued issues on the exact positioning of the
Iranian-Iraqi border but there will not be a new Iraq-Iran war," said Olivier
Jakob of Petromatrix in Switzerland. "While it does create some nice headlines
in a holiday market, the market reaction on Friday shows the risk of buying oil
on such hyped headlines."
A slight recovery of the euro against the
dollar also helped oil prices, as crude valued in dollars becomes cheaper for
investors holding other currencies when the greenback weakens.
Monday, the euro was up to $1.4345 from $1.4329 in New York on Friday.
"In a holiday environment of low liquidity for commodity markets, we
will this week mainly focus on the dollar," Jakob said.
In other Nymex
trading in January contracts, heating oil advanced 2.23 cents to $1.9790 while
gasoline rose 0.84 cent to $1.9032. Natural gas gained 2.4 cents to $5.806 per
1,000 cubic feet.
"The weather has been cold and the U.S. East Coast has
seen some of the highest snowfalls since 2003, but ... there are enough stocks
of distillates and refining spare capacity to answer any surge of demand without
necessarily creating any imbalances," Jakob said.
In London, Brent crude
for February delivery rose 58 cents to $74.33 on the ICE Futures exchange.
