Something Positive About Oil & Gas Right Now


As you might’ve read somewhere else that energy prices are on a low nowadays, that is something that we should not focus on as of now because there’s something positive about it actually.

Investors, brace yourselves because the coming year might be good year if you’re planning to invest on oil and gas.

As mentioned above, the prices for oil has been going down but that’s not the same as the private equity funds, a positive thing in the oil industry.

There is one country that has been using this factor to their advantage and that is Japan. The country has been buying a lot of gas and oil internationally which surprises the industry and helps it somehow as well. It is all behind the reason of some investors are optimistically taking the downturn for something positive and while the price are cheap, it attracts investors such as Japan.

Private equities are mostly reserved in the US but reports from Japan’s government arm Jogmec and Pertamina: a state oil industry in Indonesia states that purchasing oil and gas might get extensive internationally.


Petramina might acquire billions of dollars this year as its current $700 million already was a good start. Jogmec on the other hand has organized a financial backing plan amounting to a number of 5.2 million dollars just for oil and gas.

These Asian firms have started looking for resources in their mother land and in their own continents first before extending to further countries outside their district. But as it was said earlier, they already planned to extend further with Indonesia planning to contact Mozambique and Gabon of Africa for resources. Jogmec also reported plans on the said continent of Africa and provided financial assistance in Kenya as a start. Greenland is the next target of the Japanese government arm.

Jogmec is planning to expand the resourcing further more to other continents.

What Makes The Forex Market Unique?


Forex or foreign exchange is the simple trade of one currency for another. It is a contrivance that permits a stockholder to perform a trade in the market of currencies – the forex market. By far, it is the most traded internationally.

What makes it different from the stock market?

The forex market is one of the best markets in terms of liquidity. Traders should not worry about much of the liquidity of the forex market because the flow here is fluid. You won’t expect big changes or volatility for again, the presence of its great liquidity is far greater than other markets.


Trading in forex doesn’t really have any time limit except for weekends. The market is open for 24 hours in the weekdays of the week. So for five days, you can trade whenever you want, anytime and anywhere.

The forex market is a global trading scene and that is because what you trade here are currencies and you trade it with another country’s currency which makes it a vast market and how vast it is you may ask? It’s internationally large so more chances of winning and possibly less as well.

There are a lot of factors that affect forex. Namely, inflation, interest rates, public debts and political performance to mention some.

Inflation rate changes the value of forex based solely on performance. For example, if inflation rate is low then currency value might appreciate. Interest rate on the other hand affects value when it increases as well. This attracts more capital from lenders to investors as the interest rate appreciates the value surges as well. Both are just examples of political performances which if political turmoil is avoided, the greater the value of forex can become.

The principal mandate for foreign exchange in the interior nation emanates from shippers from extraneous goods and chattels, consumers of distant securities, administration, organizations acquiring possessions and amenities in a foreign country and itinerants.

Can Gold Become A Hit?


The answer to that is yes that is if US interest rates maintains a low rate which is according to reports is one of the main actions of the country.

Before December starts, last year’s December interest rates surge which made low records in the following months after that. On a positive note, it did rise and that’s one of the highlights of the year.

Back in those days, specifically on the first day of the year, it was not sure if it can bounce lower in terms of interest rates and to everyone’s joy it went lower and gold rose.

The process behind such rise in a low rate is US rates affect gold values in a simple expectation of a dollar rise. Dollar and Gold are what we can consider as rivals in the scene and when one gains in value, the other one gains as well.


If interest rates fail to do so however, it is advisable to invest in dollars instead because gold is reliant on dollar value. Again, one must perform an educated decision before doing anything.

Janet Yellen, US Federal Reserve chairwoman, however said that interest rates might rise in the coming periods which can weaken cold as US Job data is expected to have the same result as well but only US Jobs data has a niche.

In the past months, reports said that gold only rose in a slow 4 percent surge. Reports also claim that such is just an excuse for US Fed to maintain low rates. But this is good if you’re planning to invest in gold.

Commodities have been unstable for the past months but it can always rise again if low interest rate keeps values at a worthy disposition.

So there we have it! Gold is can be gold if you have a golden plan with you. Subscribe for more informative, bright and knowledgeable entries for your daily experience. Trade12Basics waits for you.
