Flashes of the Week:

    • With Europe pulling away from Russian oil, natural gas, and coal, President Putin has ordered a redirection of Russian commodity exports, sending more cargo to Asia, building new pipelines, and expanding rail links eastward, but … the new infrastructure Russia needs to divert exports that Europe used to buy will take years to build!!! (wsj.com)
    • Europe is scrambling to replenish its oil and natural gas supplies before imposing tougher sanctions on Russian energy. Natural gas import terminals saw record amounts of fuel in April, considering the time of year, while oil imports from non-Russian suppliers reached their highest level since the start of the pandemic. (wsj.com)


    • European Union has proposed an embargo on crude oil imports from Russia within six months and on refined oil products by the end of the year. Upon the announcement, crude oil prices immediately rose while member states remain on the lookout for alternatives. Traders and analysts say a European embargo could reduce global oil supplies since not all the barrels of Russian oil that once arrived in Europe will be diverted to buyers in other markets. (wsj.com)
    • BP posted an accounting write-off of $25.5 billion due to its decision to exit its holdings in Russia, including government-controlled oil producer Rosneft. Excluding such a loss, BP’s results beat analysts’ expectations with “outstanding” results in global oil and gas trading. (wsj.com)

    • This shelter asset is actually holding up quite well. In fact, closely correlated by the fluctuations in the U.S. dollar, when the dollar rebounded in recent days, gold gave back all of its previous gains to return to $1877.00 an ounce. However, compared to other commodities it remains stable, despite the fact that US 10-year yields are moving above 3.0%. At the same time, it is also performing significantly better compared to bitcoin. (marketpulse.com)

    • A new research study, commissioned by the International Copper Association (ICA), found that copper substitution remains limited due to the material’s ability to provide the best cost-performance combination for many applications, such as electrical plates, strips and foils (PSSF), building wires and appliance wires. In particular, winding wires in electric motors are becoming more advantageous over aluminum due to more stringent energy efficiency requirements. (copperalliance.org)
