Crude oil capitulates, ignoring bullish inventory numbers, and dropping $5 in the last 3 hours, now hanging at its low from the early May commodity panic. July crude is at $94.98. USO -4.4%, BNO -5.2%.

  • Stocks and oil have been holding hands for years. Rising oil always justifies bullish demand-based economic outlook (i.e., higher stocks and higher oil), except when rising oil threatens the demand-based economic outlook (i.e., lower stocks and lower oil). The simpler, more accurate explanation: assets are rising and falling more or less in tandem on liquidity.
