About Energy Burrito
Why Energy Burrito? The author of this blog believes that financial markets are a living breathing microcosm of many moving parts, and that each part is connected, and influences each other. Energy Burrito is a way of taking all these market ingredients – equities, currencies, bonds, commodities, economic data – and dicing them up to see how they effect what is most relevant to Summit’s core business: energy. The goal of Energy Burrito is to serve you with something appetizing, and also enjoyable; so get stuck in (= ‘indulge yourself’ in Brit lingo) and enjoy.
