Burrito Bites

bulls make a splash

Hola! Hoping your week has been full of both energy and burritos. This week has been a bit of a disappointment actually – a back-loaded eventful week promised so much excitement from Thursday and Friday. In eventuality, it has caused more of a ‘plop’ and less of a  ‘fizz’, as data and quantitative easing worries have given general markets a headache. In commodityworld(tm) natural gas has spent the week trying to scramble away from the prompt month low for the year amid the shoulder-month pit-stop between cooling and heating demand, while the Opec meeting yielded little other than everyone saying how happy they were.  Anyhoo, let’s swap the talk…for a plate, a knife, a fork. Bites ahoy:     

–Natural gas elbows its way to center-stage. 

–Biofuel’s bumpy road

 –Absolutely brilliant – 5 things Spongebob Squarepants can teach you about business (hat tip BD!).  

–Natural gas is in its tightest range in eight years

BP boiler suit is this year’s Halloween must-have. 

How close is cheap clean energy? 

–When will Opec have to address the quota issue? 

 —How big is Africa? 

Siesta Championship

–Volatility returning to oil markets? 

–Willy Wonka 3-course meal chewing gum could become reality. 

–52% of Americans flunk Climate 101

— Squirrels refuse medical care. 

–A Climate Proposal beyond Cap and Trade.   

–I keep flitting between thinking this is the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard of, or total genius……: Catch a thief from your armchair and win cash

The Burrito Non-Revelationary Fact of the week: Mr T is a goldbug

The Burrito Deluxe Award of the week goes to the Houston Chronicle and Tom Fowler, for putting the Opec Quiz as a lead feature on their websites to propel the burrito to its best day ever. A big burrito bravo to you!  

The Burnt Burrito Award of the week remains firmly on the mantelpiece of the US dollar. (8-mth lows versus the Euro, 15-year lows versus the Yen, parity versus the Aussie dollar …aaaaaaarrrrggghhh. thud.).  

The Burrito Fantastic Fact of the week comes courtesy of colleague Eric Bickel, who revealed that this October has 5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays, and 5 Sundays – a rare event (not 823 years rare as reported some places). Very random and very cool, Eric. 

The Burrito Play-on-Words of the week= Fish n’ chips! …tracking endangered blue fin tuna.

Have a corking weekend!!
