Oil Climbs as Venezuela Situation Bubbles

 
 
 

UWT, 3x Long Crude Oil ETF Venezuela

The pressure is ratcheted up on Venezuela and state-owned PDVSA.

Pittsburgh, PA (SpeculatingStocks) - The White House held a press conference Monday afternoon in which the main topic was the announcement of sanctions being placed on PDVSA, the state-owned Venezuelan oil company. PDVSA is also the majority owner of Citgo. The Trump Administration is aiming to transfer control of Venezuela's significant oil riches over to forces that opposite current dictator Nicolas Maduro. Any money paid to Venezuela by US companies importing oil, must be held in accounts not accessible to the Maduro regime.

At the time of the announcement, oil was trading at low levels, and it has been quietly moving higher since. WTI Crude Oil is up $0.51 to $53.82 or +0.96% so far today.



The move by the White House was timed correctly with oil at low levels. The oil market can afford to spike as the situation with Maduro bubbles up. Pushback is likely to occur in some form by Venezuela.

The VelocityShares 3x Long Crude Oil ETNs (NYSE:UWT) directly moves based on the move in WTI Crude Oil. UWT has moved sideways for the last three weeks, but with the sanctions being placed on PDVSA, it should start to slowly climb. Venezuela is a major oil market, and any disruption will cause a major spike in oil prices.
