Dollar falls as oil attacks send investors to safety

The dollar fell while safe-havens and currencies of oil producing countries rallied on Monday, following an attack on Saudi Arabian refining facilities that disrupted global oil supply and heightened Middle East tensions. Oil prices surged more than 15% following the strikes on two plants, including the world's biggest petroleum processing facility in Abqaiq, knocked out more than 5% of global oil supply. Yemen's Iran-aligned Houthi group claimed responsibility for the damage, but the U.S....

Oil Rallies 15%, With U.S. Prices Settling at Their Highest in 4 Months

Oil futures rallied Monday, as a weekend attack on Saudi oil facilities cut the kingdom's daily crude production down by more than half, sparking concerns of a potentially prolonged supply shortage. The news sparked talk of $100 oil prices, but that scenario "would only occur if there is an all-out war between Saudi Arabia and Iran," said Jay Hatfield, portfolio manager of the Infracap MLP exchange-traded fund. "If production is restored and there is no escalation of tensions, we would expect...

US Tests 1st Ground Missile Previously Banned in Dissolved Arms Treaty
Tuesday, 20 August 2019 13:17 WIB | GLOBAL |AmerikaGlobalRusia

The Pentagon says the U.S. military has tested a ground-based cruise missile with a range that would have been banned just three weeks ago. The missile, launched Sunday at San Nicolas Island, California, "accurately impacted its target after more than 500 kilometers of flight," the Pentagon announced in a news release Monday.

"Data collected and lessons learned from this test will inform the Department of Defense's development of future intermediate-range capabilities," it added.

The United States previously was unable to pursue ground-based missiles with a range of 500 to 5,500 kilometers because of the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty, a decades-old arms control pact with Russia.

Washington withdrew from that pact on Aug. 2, citing years of Russian violations.

The Pentagon stressed that the cruise missile was configured to carry a conventional payload, not a nuclear weapon.

New Secretary of Defense Mark Esper has said that if the U.S. military develops a fully operational mobile ground-launched cruise missile system, he wants to see American ground-based intermediate-range conventional missiles deployed to Asia.

Speaking to reporters earlier this month on his first international trip as head of the Defense Department, Esper said the weapons were important due to the "the great distances" covered in the Indo-Pacific region.

"It's about time that we were unburdened by the treaty and kind of allowed to pursue our own interests, and our NATO allies share that view as well," Esper said.

He declined to discuss when or where in Asia the missiles could be deployed until the weapons were ready, but said he hoped the deployments come within months.

While analysts have primarily focused on what the INF treaty withdrawal means for signatory nations Russia and the United States, the change also allows the United States to strengthen its position against China.

Esper said more than 80 percent of China's missile inventory has a range of 500 to 5,500 kilometers.
