  • Oil in Big Macs: Chart of the Day 0 comments
    Mar 30, 2010 7:40 PM | about stocks: USO, RJA

    The idea for this comparison of Oil to Big Macs, is that a Big Mac is representative of a basket of agricultural goods and thus compares the relative advantage of trading food for oil. Whats interesting about this is that theoretically, it should be a somewhat inflation-adjusted measure of oil prices. As of now it appears agricultural goods is undervalued relative to Oil. Interesting to see how the plays out in a pairs trade?

    Short Oil (USO United States Oil Fund LP)

    Long Agriculture (RJA ELEMENTS - Rogers International Commodity Index Agriculture Total Return)

    Disclosure: No Positions
