Iranian-Israeli Conflict?

The Robot Forex community was surprised to learn that the Iranian navy is sending two warships through the Suez Canal in order to reach their destinations in Syria.  This decision was made at a time when the Middle East is experiencing protests, instability, and uncertainty.  The Israeli foreign minister declared that the Iranian warships are a "provocation".  It has been a long time since the Iranians sent warships through the Suez Canal.  Military analysts are concerned that with the Iranian warships in such close proximity to Israel, there could be covert or overt military action resulting in a wider conflict.  

Robot Forex members are of the opinion that due to the region's strategic importance to the United States, and the area's vast oil reserves, a conflict would result in high crude oil prices, the strengthening of the U.S. dollar and the weakening of the Israeli shekel.  We live in a dangerous world where Westerners are too naive or simply indifferent about the rising tide of religious fundamentalism sweeping our world.  Regimes like the one in Iran, who are willing to murder and suppress its own population would cause far greater damage to the world.  Ignorance is bliss until it finds you under the covers and destroys you while you slumber.

An military analyst in San Diego suggests that the Iranians are attempting to refocus it's population's anger and frustration towards Israel in any potential naval altercation.  Additionally, with the protests sweeping the Middle East, people of different Arabic country's would feel great support and sympathy for the Iranians if there were losses.  Robot Forex hopes that there will be a peaceful solution to this crises.  However, the Robot Forex team is realistic, who understands that arguing with God is an option. 

Islamist Rule or Democratic Change

The winds of change are blowing across the crescent sands of the Middle East with fervor and passion.  The Robot Forex team is happy to report that Mubarak has stepped down from his presidential position after 18 days of large, sometimes violent and passionate protests.  Unofficial reports claim that he was given an ultimatum from the army to either step down voluntarily or to be forcefully removed.  Media reports suggest that he is currently residing in the seaside resort city of Sharm El-Sheik, where he is refusing life sustaining medical treatment in a bid to hasten his death.  The army has assumed control during the transition period before general elections are held.  In the meantime, the Egyptian people are taking advantage of their new found freedoms with protests being held by a number of different groups. 

As we suggested in an earlier post on the Robot Forex website, the uncertainty surrounding the beginnings of this event was an excellent investment opportunity for individuals with a high risk threshold.  The Egyptian markets and currency had originally plummeted.  Now that there is general stability for Egyptian citizens, the currency has appreciated in value, the price of crude oil has dropped, and the markets in Cairo have an influx of foreign capital.  

The Robot Forex team realizes that the people of Egypt are demanding an improved situation, including job opportunity, salary hikes, less corruption, and more freedoms.  However, we at Robot Forex are hoping that Egyptians choose a society that is not controlled by Islamist teachings, but incorporates the many beautiful values of Islam.  An opposition leader speaking at a news conference in Lebanon suggested that the peace treaty that was agreed upon by Sadat and Begin in 1978 will no longer be in effect.  These statements, regardless to their legitimacy or credibility can cause serious consequences for all Middle Eastern parties interested in peace, stability, and economic prosperity.  

Protests are happening in different regions throughout the Middle East.  These place include Iran, Bahrain, Yemen, and Sudan.  The wider Arab community has woken from its slumber to realize that as a unified group, their voices will be heard, and change is a real possibility.  However, we hope these changes are tolerant of others, democratic, and peaceful.  The Robot Forex website understands that investment opportunities are happening every day.  Robot Forex will continue to provide you with interesting, educational, and Forex related articles to help you read your investment goals. 

Energy Crisis on the Horizon?

We at Forex Robot are watching the unfolding events in Egypt very closely.  Despite protests that have turned both violent and bloody, investors are seemingly dismissing the crises in the Arab world's most populace country.  In reality, as a Forex Robot trader, this lack of concern is surprising.  Despite there being a record number of protesters in Tahrir Square, "President:" Mubarak stubbornly proclaimed that he will be finishing his presidential term as scheduled.  

The people of Egypt are irate, and the violence, looting, and anarchy has quickly spread to major cities throughout the country.  After crude oil prices jumped by nearly 5% a few days ago, the price of oil is now hovering around $90.  With exception to the lethargic U.S. housing market, many world economic indicators show continued growth in key manufacturing sectors.  The present challenge is food inflation, and it's impact on developing economies.
