                10.04.2018 - “Will the US and Russia go into a confrontation in Syria? This likely depends on Trump’s decision over the next 24 hours, but the risks are high,” said Hussein Sayed, chief market strategist at FXTM. “Although oil prices may have risen on hopes that trade tensions will ease, investors may start pricing in a much higher risk premium. So far, it seems the conflict in Syria has no impact on the supply from the Middle East, but if the battle spills outside the Syrian border, I expect another $10 risk premium to be added to the current price.”
