Crude oil slumps in subdued trade as supply glut concerns linger Sep 07, 2015 3:58PM ET

Has An Oil Buying Climax Finally Arrived? Sep 07, 2015 3:52PM ET
Most demand is generated by ordinary consumers, which drive cars and use chemical ingredients.. . It should be big recession to change something in demand side, except steady growth in parallel with population growth.. . On supply side everything depend of agreement between OPEC and Russia and speed of fall in shale production.. . For now (September) price could be here around (43-50), but after that could ignite..
Is The Stock Market Now 'Too Big to Fail'? Sep 06, 2015 7:16PM ET
Yes, probably if this would happening FED should intervene. Otherwise chain reaction could ruin first banking system, then economy and then everybody wealth. . . Intervention is not so complicated. They could just bought a lot of ETF stocks with indices (SPY, QQQ, ...) and reaction would come in minutes, since this ETF then run to buy all kind of stocks. Or they can use opposite mechanism as is used by WS bears and just buy a lot of calls for this equities.

Crude inches up, despite few developments in Putin-Maduro meeting Sep 03, 2015 7:33PM ET
I don't understand this reporting here. As we can see from report every and each rig count went down, but you report about only one that went up (for one). If this is not misleading information, then I don't know which is.. . file:///C:/Users/User/Downloads/Rig%20Count%20Summary_082815.pdf.
Currency Wars Escalate As China’s Move Triggers a Chain Reaction Aug 22, 2015 7:32AM ET
Lets not forget how it started.. . With "strong dollar" as we remember. Which devaluated all other currencies from club of 7. After that export from China fall sharply to EU and Japan.. . Probably production grow in EU and Japan accordingly, but market haven't sensed this yet :-). . So now, Yuan will go little lower, EUR and Jen little up and it will be some order in world again.. .

Gold: Not Your Father's Metal Aug 22, 2015 5:30AM ET
Gold is primary hedge through history.. . Nothing can replace its role in that.. . Every rich man and women in this world has at least 10% in gold. So it goes.
Commodities: 20-Year Bear Market In Play? Aug 03, 2015 1:42AM ET
20 year. You must be kidding. This are not 80's. World is global. with low prices, supply will vanish and then price will go up.. Like somebody said, cure for high supply is low price and cure for high demand is high price. . Currently demand is high, because financing is free and there is a lot of player in industry that are far over any normal level of debt. When they will hut bankruptcy, supply will go down.

How wouldn't be a recession if market speculators beat down the prices from which live half of the world?. . this price drops in commodities are not natural.. . somebody prepare market for end of the interest free money. In this case ownership of commodities company that earn real money and cover cost of financing is the only way.
Global stock markets are breaking new highs everyday on hopes for more stimulus. Are the markets manipulated? May 24, 2015 10:38AM ET
With "cost free" that doesn't have even expiration time yet, everything else wouldn't be logical. I don't remember that would be ever in history that somebody can borrow such quantities of public money for free. Even former Soviet Union didn't provide that for their satellites. It goes on harm to saved money of middle class and other owners of money..
Is It Time For Crude To Cool Off? May 24, 2015 9:47AM ET
This "weather forecast" doesn't help a lot. Dollar is in historic lows, while crude is not, especially if we take in consideration strength of Dollar. . Probability soon or later Dollar will go 10-20% up and crude won't go anywhere.

Wall St. ends up sharply as investors buy beaten-down shares May 02, 2015 11:08AM ET
Beaten down shares?!? 1.5% under historic record level is beaten down for you? Good joke.. . It was just good opportunity to pump a little more, because they all think that rate hike won't happen this year or ever. But FED is obviously coming back from winter sleep.

Every comodity has its "natural price". It can drop below but not to much, because production shrink. And NG is already deep in this zone. US NG prices are aprox. 85$/1000 m3 and world prices are between 300-400$.

Crude Oil Gains 50% When This Happens Apr 04, 2015 10:47AM ET

Crude Oil Gains 50% When This Happens Apr 04, 2015 10:45AM ET
