Learn-To-Trade.com, Toronto’s Leading Provider of Professional Stock Market Training Courses, Warns Crisis in Ukraine to Impact Gas and Oil Prices

Toronto, Canada (PRWEB), July 31, 2014 – Learn-To-Trade.com , Toronto’s leading provider of professional stock market trading courses designed to create successful traders on the financial market, is warning that natural gas and oil prices could be impacted in both the short and long term by growing geopolitical tensions in Ukraine and Russia.

“While natural gas prices are currently trading at an eight-month low and crude oil prices are finding support above $100 a barrel, many believe that could change if geopolitical tensions in Russia and Ukraine continue to escalate,” says George Karpouzis, co-founder and director of education at Learn-To-Trade.com. “This is especially possible if the 28 member states that make up the European Union approve tougher sanctions on Russia.”

Karpouzis explains that the European Union (EU) imposed a sanction on Russia back in March over the annexation of Crimea. In the wake of speculation that Russian-backed separatists shot down Malaysian Flight MH17 on July 17, some EU members are looking to impose even tougher sanctions.

Imposing sanctions on Russia requires all 28 EU member states to be in agreement. However, many economists believe European powerhouses like Germany, France, Italy, and the U.K. will balk at the idea because they rely too much on Russia for imports and exports.

Russia is Europe’s biggest supplier of gas, providing a third of the continent’s demand, 40% of which flows through Ukraine. England imports 12% of its oil from Russia, while Germany, Russia’s biggest trading partner, relies on them for 35% of its oil and 42% of its gas. Italy gets 25% of its oil and 38% of its gas from Russia; while France relies on Russia for 15% of its oil and 18% of its gas. Russia is also the biggest importer of uranium and coal into the EU. (Source: Heffer, S., “The selfish cowardice of Germany, France and Italy whose leaders have done so little to bring Putin and his Kremlin gangsters into line,” The Daily Mail, July 23, 2014; www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2702130/The-selfish-cowardice-Germany-France-Italy-little-bring-Putin-Kremlin-gangsters-line.html.)

“Sanctions against Russia by the EU would raise the ire of Russian president Vladimir Putin. He could react to sanctions by stopping all natural gas and oil exports to the EU; effectively grinding Europe’s economic recovery to a halt,” Karpouzis adds.  “While tougher sanctions imposed against Russia by the EU are not a given, ongoing tensions will prevent any significant decline in the price of oil and gas, at least in the short term.”

“At the same time, ongoing tensions between the West and Russia threaten to intensify. Longer-term, this could send the prices of oil and gas higher,” Karpouzis concludes. “As a result, both the short- and long-term outlook will create interesting opportunities for investors.”

I wanted to let you know that I had taken your course in the fall of 2013. I took your advice and used demo accounts for the last quarter of 2013. I switched to real money trading account in the Near Year, when I finally felt comfortable. Following the lessons taught to me by you (don’t jump on a moving train, peaks and valleys, EMA..etc), I wanted to let you know that I have been successful beyond my own expectations. Thank you very much – taking the Learn-to-Trade course was, by far, the best decision I made in my business career.

I took your course in 2008 and loved it. Since then I have been using what I learned at Learn-to-Trade to nicely supplement my pension income. Wanting a carefree type of trading, I have for the most part just sold options and made a monthly income which is a nice addition to my pension. I know I never would have made this kind of trading income without Learn-to-Trade. Thank you!

Hi George,

I just wanted to thank you again for the amazing work on the tutorials especially Options trading.   Prior to joining, I had underestimated the quality of the trainings but they certainly far exceeded my expectations. Only I wish I’d found you 5-10 years ago!
