Missile testing isn't going to stop the Iranian oil barrels from hitting the market, said RBC Capital Market's Helima Croft on Thursday.
On the last day of trading for 2015, Iran President Hassan Rouhani took to Twitter to respond to U.S. threats of imposing new sanctions because of missile testing in October.
Croft, a senior strategist for RBC Capital Market, says that while the Iranian missile testing does violate United Nations regulations, it does not interfere with the nuclear deal signed last July. She expects Iran to continue to export oil barrels. The deal imposed limits on Tehran's nuclear ability in exchange for lighter sanctions against Iran.
"It comes on to the market as long they take down their centrifuges, make the modifications to their nuclear facilities; once that's finished, the Iranians are free to sell whatever they want in terms of oil," Croft said.
