Estimated range tomorrow 39.81 - 41.20 by DeMark equation. Any guess on API inventory? GLTA

I think Obama actually did something good for US economy. Just see the past when Bush was president. almost alls tocks had 40% less value than it is now. I think he did a good job. . Removing sanctions was on Iran was because of Oil war between US and Russia. Why did Oil crisis happened Right after Russia tok that Island from Ukraine? You Americans living in a american dream :p
