I think it's just a Twitter rumor at this point. Someone having a laugh because Obama got scolded by a Middle Eastern dictator. It'll be interesting to see if it's real, though.

It was circulating among the dealers at like 12 am pacific time. When the broadcast picked that up, both WTI and Brent traded up a bit around 4:50 and 5:00 am EST. you will see a pretty clear spike, even the credit default swap on Saudi debt were up 15 pips. Now they are saying Saudi Royal Court denies rumor regarding King Abdullah's death. I am trying to get another source to confirm it...

Alhamdulillah. That guy is indestructible.

I'm willing to bet that it's true.

Whenever rumors of UAE sheikhs passing away emerged, they almost consistently unfolded to be true.

According to the reports, he had a heart attack.

That doesnt make sense though. One of his medical staff is a very close family friend... so NO, he doesnt have any problems with his heart (arteries are A-OK).

He only had problems with his back and went to NY Presb. for an operation a few months back, and then went to Morocco to rest a bit. He's fine.
