Pro Trader Fading Oil’s Spike
23 Mar 2012 EDT - CNBC.com

On Friday many investors were asking how high oil prices would go, after crude spiked near $108 per barrel following a report that Iranian oil exports dropped significantly this month.The report said Iran's shipments have tumbled by 300,000 barrels per day, or 14 percent, in March.Although that may sound bullish (lower supply), top energy pro Dan Dicker tells us, it’s actually bearish.

He explains that pros see these developments as a sign that sanctions are starting to have an impact. “They’re dropping the amount of credit and money going into development and production in Iran,” Dicker says.If sanctions are working, then diplomacy is working.

And if diplomacy is working, military action becomes incrementally less likely. In turn, that calls into question the premium already factored into the price of oil.“I’m taking off my long positions,” Dicker says.Energy trade Joe Terranova agrees. “Diplomacy is now front and center.”* You can find our conversation with Dan Dicker about 3 minutes into the video clip above.
