  • Why I Expect WTI To Go Back To $100 [View article]
    "The dollar has a track record of decreasing in purchasing power for at least 100 years."

    622, the dollar has depreciated horribly, however, we process many more
    times of these depreciated bills.

    Marek, can you give me an examples of a oil derivatives and oil swap?

    "Price manipulation by mass use of futures" - do you mean there is a two, three, four fold increase in trading?

    Of course you must understand that when someone goes long in the future market, another trader must go short..If there are too many longs, the price must decline in order to have equilibrium...

    "Regardless, futures markets don’t operate in a vacuum. Eventually, futures prices have to reconcile with “market fundamentals” (the term of art for the real supply and demand for crude in physical markets)."

    There is a degree price distortion in any market, but to suggest that "spot prices are heavily influenced by futures activity and a crowd expecting a drop can create it by futures" is patently untrue.

    This would imply that someone else on the other side of the trade is
    merely a dupe for the manipulators.

    Such markets would have no longevity.

  • I Wouldn't Get Used To $65 Oil [View article]
    TOT, that sure has a very comprehensive post..You are quite knowledge about the topic.

    All I can add, is that our Earth is so complex man will never fully
    understand it..This is most certainly true when climate and weather
    patterns are projected..

    I think I can say unequivocally, man shall never have the ability to control
    or effect the weather, no matter how many PHDs we have or institutions
    of high learning.

    The complexity of our environment exceeds that of man...If man had
    the desire and talent to recreate the earth, only then could he fully
    understand these mechanisms and control his environment.

    622, I agree, as long as there is economic expansion more crude will
    be used; however, that in itself may not be the driver of higher prices.

    History, will tell you dat.

    TOT, this is what Ms Kappaseek stated:

    "There is a lot of misinformation out there, but if you look into it, you'll discover that the science is basically unequivocal at this point. We have to transition away from fossil fuels. We are talking about the collapse of ecosystems, mass extinctions and the possibility of life itself."

    Are defending such an over-the-top statement...?

    622 "You have that backwards. Less capital spending is exactly what will decrease oil supplies and greatly increase prices."

    But for years they where increasing spending, with increasing supplies
    and prices.

    Marek, today Co no co announced the reduced of capital spending
    for 2015 by 20%; hardly a vote on recovering oil prices.

    One day the Debt Bubble Bomb will make it's mark...

    The debts by corporations and governmental units are also
    massive and will contribute to a severe world recession..

    All of this is currently being masked by Central bankers worldwide.

    Just think, if there was not a storage shortage no one
    even contemplating "investing" in natty.

    IMO, the market has but seven short weeks to experience
    a stretch of bitter cold weather to rally prices.

    After that, it is spring training time.

    Marek, you sure know how to fork a steak; and from many angles.

    Hear what I stated: "I concur, Mr Kolivakis. What is undermining 100+ goo, is surging USA production and other regions...

    The author theme is the future markets, his modeling and predictions from
    governmental units...Sorry, but I would not draw any conclusions from any
    of those sources.

    Your first post was a review of the ME political situation and the effects
    on the price of crude; followed speculation of the role of investment
    "bankers."

    Since you did not bother to answer my question to you, them I must assume you believe the current decline and future rise are based on political event and investment "bankers."

    As I have stated elsewhere, the current decline in pricing, is the result of
    excess capacity in the world market..If this excess is expanded, prices
    will continue to decline.

    It was Red China, at the turn of the century, which lead to $100 plus
    crude.

    I have also indicated, that since 80% of world reserves are held by
    state "enterprises;" that this has resulted to under-production and the recent volatile in energy prices.

    America, also was responsible for triple digit oil, by allowing the collapse
    of it's own domestic production and as a result funding world terrorists groups...Yes, the US consumer, CONgress and failed energy policies has
    play a leading role in the concentration of monies and power to areas of
    the world, which do not harbor either free enterprise nor freedom.

    The problems of the last decade started years ago...The results have culminated in decades of trade deficits and a declining dollar, as well
    as a shrinking world power.
