OPEC did not cut outputs.
Global economy is still slowing down despite QE .
Price war - Saudis inflicting a lesson to non cooperative producing countries.
44             is target.
23 if something really goes wrong.

Venezuela and Russia, along with Nigeria and Angola are already in recession will probably default on debt if prices are sustained in the 40's next year. Iran will also dip into further recession, but won't default, because sanctions will probably be lifted with a nuclear agreement.

Very true. OPEC shot themselves in the foot. I still think this is the natural course of things, though - lower prices. We've been in a global disinflation/deflationary period since the recession. Prices will come down because there is not much demand. When emerging markets aren't growing, there is no growth in demand. When developed countries are struggling, there is no need for discretionary trips and such where oil would be in demand. Oil has been one of the only assets over the last few years to respond the way it should in terms of fundamentals.

I totally agree here. I see another 2008 playing out. However, I think high yield oil corporate debt will come into play.

What about oil rich government that need oil prices in the 70-80's to balance budgets?

Yes the low 40's seem possible and if so won't that make some interesting headlines (note if it hits the 20's as you possibly suggested that will bust most US oil companies not to mention almost everybody else in the oil game)

US oil companies will never go bust, and if only one should left (even nationalized in AIG, GM style), it will go through and take over oil market, unlike "everybody else in the game"
It is oil war, yacine is right

Is this kind of real QE deliberating cash? Consumers will have more cash left, goods will be produced cheeper (but not sold, deflation is not wanted), so lets spend, margins and prices will go up, maybe production could take off
Equities will be interesting after thanksgiving

btw. extremely punishing effect on russia, dangerous play, i would not blame saudis, they essentially are not willing to carry the oil market anymore, check
