Global Tensions Could Push Oil to $100: Kilburg

Wednesday, 10 Oct 2012 | 5:54 PM ET

Geopolitical concerns could send crude oil toward $100 per barrel, Jeff Killburg of Killir Kapital Management said Wednesday on CNBC.

Iran remains the single largest concerns, especially as Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called for early elections, giving investors an opportunity to get long, Kilburg said on “Fast Money.”

Oil Could Reach $100 Per Barrel: Kilburg
Geopolitical concerns could send crude oil up toward $100 per barrel within the next five to 10 sessions, Jeff Killburg of Killir Kapital Management says.

“I think there’s a back-end filler in the next five to 10 trading sessions,” he said.

Prices could head back to levels seen when Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke announced QE3, he added.

Kilburg also noted rising tensions between Syria and Turkey, which could squeeze production.

“It’s all about the geopolitical tension,” he said. “The bears have a lot of arrows in their quiver right now. They have global forecast reductions.”
