Why The Price of Oil Tanked And Why It’ll Stage A Comeback

WTI spreads stayed in a bearish pattern this week with help from a flood of imported crude into the US, a modest inventory build in Cushing and OPEC deal jitters which were particularly harsh. Our current view still calls for a $47-$55 range heading into the OPEC meeting later this month and we see several reasons why oil should find its footing and potentially rebound in the near term.

Huge Draw in Crude Oil Stocks Prove Ineffective, Will OPEC Meeting Help Oil Prices?

API reports a 1.4-million-build in US crude oil inventory over last week, much lower than expectations of a 4-million-barrel build, but bursting the bubble (biggest draw in a century) created the week before. Mixed signals from the OPEC nations and a lack of commitment from the larger oil producers indicate that the Algiers meeting could be headed the Doha way.

Short Gold and Silver at your own Risk - Rather Buy the Dip

We are entering a seasonally strong period of time for gold and silver. My stance is to take a look at an even bigger picture which shows that silver may be finding investment demand at this seasonally bullish time of year. Wedding season is also a good time to own gold as is the month of September (a month I don’t like to short precious metals) which begins today.

Will The Rally In Crude Oil Prices End Today?

The market sell off on product market concerns did not lead any notable change in crude oil fundamentals. Refiners have yet to pull back meaningfully on crude oil purchases & crude oil inventory builds are only starting to turn bearish in both the weekly US statistics and globally. US crude oil inventories are set to build above normal over the coming months.

Silver Market - Most Suppressed Market Of All To Witness A Historic Shortage

Based on several factors, it is eminently possible that we are on the cusp of ignition, of the biggest bull market in financial market history; which in my view, will be focused on “anti-fiat monies” like gold and silver. But nowhere is shortage more likely to occur than in the most suppressed market of all, Silver, where inevitably, the breakout above $50/oz, will commence a new phase in history.

Here's Why Crude Oil Prices Could Keep Climbing

Stocks took a beating yesterday. But crude oil continues to push to new 2016 highs, topping $48 for the first time in nearly five months. No one is cheering as it sneaks higher week after week. Where were these oil bears when crude was trading north of $100 in early 2014? And more importantly—where are the crude oil bulls right now as this disbelief rally continues?

Here Is Why Crude Oil Prices May Not Move Higher

The investigation I have presented here about the possible similarities between the present increase in oil prices and the false price rally of March-June 2015 reinforces my sense that a return to higher oil prices is not at all straight-forward. Oil markets are a leading indicator for the broader economy because the economy runs mostly on energy and not so much on money.

The Real Reason Behind Crazy Volatility In Crude Oil This Week

The volatility in crude oil trading has been incredible to say the least, and has reached the highest levels since Lehman’s systemic crisis in 2008. Intraday swings of 5-10% are now de rigeur with OPEC and geopolitical headlines jockeying for narrative amid collapsing fundamentals.. but there is another, much bigger driver of this sudden chaos.

Truth That Experts Aren’t Telling You About Oil Prices

It’s too bad so many investors fall for the guessing game. And you can count on the big banks to supply the bait. I’m not a fan of the guessing game. If you want to make money in the markets you have to react, not guess. Let’s make money reacting to what the oil charts are showing us right now about oil prices.

Why Saudi Arabia Just Boosted Oil Production To A Record High

The problem for oil producers and investor is that the Saudis are not acting in isolation. The combination of rising U.S. production and rising Saudi production can only be bearish for oil prices. The prospect of oil testing its January low should not be ruled out, especially if Iran is given the green light to ramp up exports.

North American Crude Oil Production Remains Strong

A massive build-up of crude oil inventories is seen in the US, to levels never seen in recent history. The International Energy Agency has even warned that the US will run out of storage soon. Why do producers continue to pump at low prices? It seems that at that point someone will have to finally stop pumping crude oil out of the ground.
