Alpha.Energy - Is 0.9 correlation between Chevron – Brent tradable?


Brent Crude is the biggest of the many major classifications of oil. Brent Crude is sourced from the North Sea. Strathspey field is one of the hundreds of Oil fields in North Sea. Chevron owns 67% of the Strathspey field. Brent is the commodity, Chevron is the equity based on the commodity. A correlation of 0.9 is understandable. But does a tight correlation insulate a pair from performance divergence? No. Performance cycles illustrate a 100% annualized divergence yet again between Gazprom – Brent and between Chevron – Brent.

Understanding time can not only give a unifying theory to research of a few thousand years, but also help us understand the world we live in. Time evolves, oscillates and continues. Time comes before everything, but we don’t see it. We just feel it. We believe what we see and this is why understanding what we don’t see is a challenge. Understanding time could bring more than a conventional thought down, it’s a revolution, which could rock the very foundation of economic thought or the geometric structures Euclid laid down in 300 BC. We are at the start of the journey, but if time is indeed the real mathematics, we could see high accuracy in time forecasts.Econohistory is the study of performance cycles between assets. Cycles are the generic name for time fractals. Performance cycles can be studied for any time frame, for as small as a tick data to multiyear time frames. This objective approach to performance cyclicality can explain why intermarket analysis is an area of study? Why bonds and commodities tend to be inversely related? What is the connection of Oil with world markets? Why the world watches DOW sometimes and sometimes a 500 point effect on DOW seems to have no impact? Why correlation between assets moves from near perfect at times to weak correlation at other times? Why the same news has different impact on a stock or market? Why equities and bond trend together and why the relationship decouples sometime? When will inflation become deflation, disinflation, stagflation or hyperinflation? When and why does gold outperform and underperform silver? Econohistory can objectively answer these questions, using performance cycles, time fractals and past data. Economic history is mathematical.
